Modern windows incorporate more technology than ever to further increase their durability, streamline their frame profile, and improve the energy efficiency of the windows glass.
This is where Low-E filmed glass comes into play, letting you bring in the maximum amount of light and the least amount of heat into your home.
Low-e is a film is a protective film applied to either the interior and exterior of a window depending on the climate of the home; for warmer climates like here in Orlando, FL the low-e film would be applied on the exterior of the glass to help repel heat from entering your home and for colder climates the low-e film would be applied on the interior of the window to help keep the heat from escaping your home.
Another benefit to low-e film is the reduction in ultraviolet lights entering your home.
Ultraviolet light is responsible for giving you a tan, or sunburn, when you go to the beach and it acts very similarly to your home, if the glass in your windows does not protect against ultraviolet light then you may see fading on fabrics that sit in direct sunlight or notice heat coming from the light your windows are bringing in.
Low-e film is known for its slightly green hue when compared to raw clear glass.
We are proud to announce that we have begun carrying the

The Forgent Series features windows constructed of a material called Glastra®, a proprietary hybrid of fiberglass and a UV stable polymer, wood interiors are offered as well. With an advanced ladder frame design Kolbe is able to both add strength and promote energy efficiency. Integral nailing fin and installation clip grooves make installation easy and convenient for installers.
The Heritage Series windows & doors are carefully crafted with a wood interior and exterior, making it possible to easily create architecturally specific, intricate, and historically accurate details. With an extensive palette of exterior colors; interior wood species, colors & stains; divided lite profiles and patterns we are able to make any design ideas a reality.
Kolbe's Ultra Series was designed specifically for versatility and durability. With the ability to mimic the traditional style of wood windows and doors with a warm wood interior and intricate exterior trim details, and meet more modern design needs at the same time. With an extruded aluminum exterior these windows are both strong & durable and still offer a palette of long-lasting, vibrant colors.

The HGTV Dream Home Sweepstakes has become one of the largest giveaway contest in the nation over the last several years. Since 1997 the popular cable network channel has given away one million-dollar(+) home every year. A recent report described the contest as receiving over 80 million entries per contest.
When Jeld-wen was selected to provide windows and doors on the new 2016 HGTV Dream Home, Jeld-wen reached out to Mansion Supply & Service to represent them on this project.
As one of Jeld-wen's Preferred Dealers here in Florida we were honored to get the call to assist them on this project. We recently delivered a large load of windows and doors to the site and in the photo to the left you can see our chief installer Jeff Ritz installing the the front door on this Merritt Island, FL home.

When builders and homeowners visit our showroom in Winter Park, FL one of the most common questions that is asked is "why would you buy wood windows over vinyl or aluminum"? Wound't you be worried about rot? Wouldn't they expand with the extreme heat and moisture in Florida? Wouldn't they need to be replaced sooner than others? These are all valid questions and we are here to answer them for you.
The reality is that all of these concerns would become actual problems if and only if you are buying windows from any other company other than JELD-WEN. JELD-WEN is the only window company that uses their patented AuraLast technology for treating their exclusively grown wood (pine).
AuraLast is JELD-WEN’s proprietary water-based wood protection process. Unlike traditional chemical dip-treatments that only coat a thin layer on the wood’s surface, AuraLast delivers virtually 100 percent surface-to-core protection. JELD-WEN wood windows, patio doors and door frames with AuraLast Wood can protect you from the expense, damage and inconvenience of decaying wood.
