PGT® OFFERS WINDOW REPLACEMENT REBATE FOR SPRING REMODELING AND HURRICANE SEASON PREPARATION
VENICE, Fla., Dec. 13, 2006 – Just in time for spring sprucing and hurricane season readiness, PGT’s “Windows of Opportunity” rebate program offers homeowners an incentive to boost the energy efficiency and safety of their home.
For orders placed between Jan. 2 and March 31, 2007, customers will receive a $20 rebate on each window ordered, $50 rebate on each PGT door with either aluminum or vinyl frames and $100 on each WinGuard® door with either vinyl or aluminum frames. To be eligible for the rebate, products must feature an energy efficiency upgrade: insulating glass, tinted glass or Low-E glass.
“Research shows that a window replacement increases a home’s value and can bring up to a 90 percent ROI,” said PGT Vice President of Sales and Marketing Debbie LaPinksa. “Meanwhile, WinGuard provides a homeowner with peace of mind knowing they’ve made their home safer from hurricanes, and energy-efficient upgrades yield long-term savings on heating and cooling costs.”
Consumers should ask their independent PGT distributor about the “Windows of Opportunity” rebate program. They may visit pgtindustries.com and use the online “dealer locator” or call 877-550-6006 to find a distributor in their area.
PGT® WinGuard® is the #1 selling line of residential impact-resistant products. Available in a wide variety of custom shapes and sizes, WinGuard® Impact-Resistant Windows and Doors provide 24/7 hurricane protection and can also qualify a homeowner for up to a 43 percent reduction in their windstorm insurance rates. Other benefits include burglary protection, sound reduction and 99 percent blockage of UV rays.
WinGuard combines heavy-duty aluminum or vinyl frames with impact-resistant laminated glass. A special silicone glazing process helps keep the glass from breaking away from the frame. Laminated glass is constructed by bonding a tough polyvinylbutyral (PVB) interlayer between two pieces of glass under heat and pressure. Once sealed, the glass "sandwich" behaves as a single unit and is transparent, like ordinary glass. Although wind-borne debris may crack the glass on impact, the interlayer keeps the overall window in tact, preventing destructive winds and rain from entering the home.
