They are used in rooms where you want to preserve the view of the outdoors, be it your yard or the view in the distance.

Operational windows can only be used for certain window sizes, as their moving sashes will eventually become too heavy for the window frame.

Great overall service and quality windows, highly recommend. This is an owner/operator business, so you’re not dealing with a whole bunch of corporate nonsense.

Great communication and his guys went above and beyond in purchasing new wood trim (which they painted) to frame around the window. They have my appreciation and strong recommendation.

CTEWS redid the siding, replaced rotten plywood, rotten decking, all the trim, new windows & painted everything. All for a very fair price! Best of all though, was the service.
