When you’re buying a new home, it’s all about the details, from flooring, to cabinets and oh yes, the windows. If you asked your friends and neighbors to tell you about the windows in their home, chances are they might not have much to tell you, and maybe you haven’t thought much about your home’s windows before either. Not to worry, the Clayton Built® team has been hard at work on those details for you.
Now, you might be asking yourself, “Are manufactured windows different?” Well, if they were side by side with the windows used in a site-built home, you wouldn’t really be able to tell the difference, because the similar materials and process used to build the windows.
When it comes to the windows in our Clayton Built® homes, being “good enough” just doesn’t cut it. That’s why we hold ourselves to the Clayton Built® standard! We take this standard seriously, and it means we’re committed to quality at each phase of your home’s construction, right down to the little details. This quality derives from the trusted products and brand partners we select for our homes, which is why we offer Lux™ Windows in our new manufactured and modular homes.
Benefits and Features of Lux™ Windows
Lux windows are more than just a beautiful design feature, they are made of insulated vinyl, making them both stylish and durable. Insulated vinyl is more resistant to impact, heat loss and condensation, which mean your home’s windows are built to last while requiring less maintenance than some other window materials, like aluminum.
Insulated for Energy Efficiency and Comfort
Helping keep your home comfortable and efficient is a window’s top job, which is why Lux windows also have double-paned, insulated glass to help reduce your home’s energy usage. Every window is built with Low-E glass and some windows have optional argon gas for more added energy efficiency.
When it’s hot outside, Lux insulated windows works to keep that heat out. When it’s cold outside, the heat inside will stay right where you want it. What does that mean for you? This added energy efficiency, paired with your SmartComfort by Carrier® heating and cooling unit, keeps the temperature in your home regulated, which means potential savings on your energy bill and comfort in your home all year long.
The Low-E glass also helps reduce the amount of UV rays entering your home, which not only helps with your energy costs but can also keep your curtains, carpet and furniture fabric colors from becoming dull over time. Added bonus: Did you know that Lux windows also reduce outside noise? That’s right! We want you to be able to come home and relax without the distractions of the outside world.
