Welcome to our Home Window department, we’re pleased you’ve stopped by.
Choosing home windows in Reno, Tahoe, Truckee and surrounding areas can be a daunting and overwhelming task and the reasons driving your purchase can differ greatly. Appearance, deterioration, noise reduction and energy efficiency are just a few. By focusing on the unique needs of your project, we are able to tailor specific solutions. Whether you are replicating a hundred-year-old window, or yearning for the innovative and unusual, we can make your ideas into window and door reality. Our satisfied customers are the ones most engaged and educated about the crucial selection of windows and doors in their homes.

A well chosen window and door offers benefits of healthier living and comfort in addition to the aesthetics. Beyond energy efficiency, beyond beauty, windows and doors are carefully placed to maximize enjoyment of healthier living.
Air quality is typically thought of as an outdoor issue. But indoor air can have two to five times the level of pollutants as the outside air. Inhibitors such as mold spores, dust, cleaning chemicals, pet dander and off-gassing from carpet or furniture contribute to the high amount of pollutants. Americans spend as much as 90% of their time indoors and having access to natural ventilation can greatly improve the quality of air breathed. When properly placed, operable windows provide access to clean, fresh air for occupants as needed. This natural ventilation flushes out stale air, which is particularly important in tightly sealed buildings.
Is there a side of your house that gets icy blasts of wind? Consider non-operating windows such as picture windows and radius windows on that side. These are among the best options for keeping the elements out of your home while letting natural light in. Keep in mind that smaller windows will be more efficient in these situations.
In a bathroom, you probably will want at least one operable window to vent moisture so you don’t have to rely solely on a fan.
