Window Glass Options

We source our glass from the largest premier glass manufacturer, Cardinal Glass, producing the most advanced residential & commercial products in the industry.

Your salesperson can walk you through the options that make the most sense for your home, including options for tempered and obscured glass.

Glass Overview

1. Primary Seal

Primary seal minimizes moisture permeation, is UV resistant and provides an outstanding Argon barrier, slowing heat loss and keeps temperatures more stable inside your home.

2. Secondary Seal

Provides long-term adhesion, is unaffected by UV exposure and provides excellent durability when exposed to moisture. Silicone also provides structural integrity.

3. Edge Spacer

The warm edge spacer separates the glass panes and seals the unit-reducing heat loss and risk of condensation.

4. Desiccants

Beaded sieve provides initial frost points below -65°F. Assures optimum moisture absorption while minimizing the effects of temperature-related pressure changes.

Glass Specs


Elite’s triple-pane replacement windows offer the tightest seal when it comes to keeping heat from escaping your home, as well as keeping outdoor air from leaking inside. When you rely less on your heating and cooling, your utility bills will reduce. Elite Windows and Doors offers a variety of ENERGY STAR* qualified products, with a glass solution for every home.

Reduced Noise

Multiple panes benefit noide reduction quality—that means you’re less likely to be woken early in the morning by noisy neighbors or perky birds!

Less Condensation

Indoor window condensation is a problem in humid climates like Virginia. It’s not attractive and can lead to problems with mold or mildew. Double-pane and triple-pane replacement windows work to slow the flow of air through the windows meaning you’re far less likely to have issues with window condensation.
