Enjoy enhanced curb appeal with eye-catching Alpine windows, which offer great durability and resistance to water and air infiltration without sacrificing beauty. Make the most of an attractive combination of energy efficiency, low maintenance, comfort and value with the Alpine PVC windows—saving you money while keeping your home warm when it’s cold outside.
When choosing a window, you want something that suits the personality of your home while meeting performance needs for your climate. Select something that suits your home’s style, has the energy efficiency performance you need and can withstand the weather conditions in your city. Remember, the more severe the weather, the better performance you’ll need for your windows. If you’re considering something more distinctive, we can help you create a unique combination of windows to suit your home.
Select a frame colour to match your home’s exterior. Keep it simple with a classic, elegant frame or enhance curb appeal with the addition of grilles or exterior brickmould (available depending on window series).
Options and finishes for window hardware are also available for most of our window series.
Note: Colours are not exactly as shown.
Internal Grilles are installed between panes of glass, leaving the exposed interior and exterior glass surfaces smooth and easy to clean. Our selection of grilles will give your rooms that beautiful look of divided light, while also being completely maintenance-free.
Note: Lead colour available on 5/16” and 5/8” Georgian only

Simulated Divided Lite (SDL) Grilles are installed on the exterior and interior of the glass surface to simulate the look of divided panes of glass. Traditionally, individually-divided panes of glass were used, but they reduced energy efficiency by creating multiple seams and joints for every pane. With the simulated design, you still get the beautiful look of divided glass, without sacrificing energy efficiency.

Good design and correct installation are important factors in ensuring energy efficient windows, but glass performance plays the biggest role. Different glass options have different benefits so, before choosing your glass, be sure to consider the weather conditions of where you live. Colder climates will require more insulation power and specific glass coatings to improve energy efficiency.
Did you know? ENERGY STAR® certified windows can reduce your energy costs by up to 16%.
Argon gas is an inert gas—non-toxic, clear and odourless. Used to fill the space between panes of glass, it minimizes convective currents reduces the chance of glass collecting frost on cold winter days.
Dual Clear Glass
Two panes of glass with no special coating applied. The panes are spaced a ½ inch apart and the air between the panes acts as an insulation barrier, making your windows more energy efficient.
Low-E (low emissivity) is a clear coating that reduces heat loss by reflecting furnace heat back into a room, allowing lots of outside solar energy to pass into your home. In winter, it can even reduce the demands on your furnace. Low-E can offer 35%-105% better insulation when combined with dual/triple pane glass.
SunStop uses two layers of Low-E coating to block out the sun’s heat, light and UV rays. Perfect for south and west-facing windows, this coating keeps your home cool in the summer and warmer in the winter with superior insulation performance.
Also spaced a ½ inch apart, these three panes provide more insulation than dual pane when it comes to energy efficiency. Enjoy lower heating costs, virtually no condensation and an excellent sound barrier, giving your home added privacy.
All performance ratings are imperial for Centre of Glass (C.O.G.) and are based on Vision v4.0 simulations. All C.O.G U-and R- values are based on ASHREA Winter Conditions. Framing, cladding, frame type and other items will affect the overall thermal values of a complete window.
