April 23, 2012 - Spotlights
The recent episode showed the Crystal vinyl windows being installed and demonstrated their operation. The show's real estate and renovation expert host went further and highlighted some of the Crystal Series 200 window features such as improved energy efficiency over the house's original windows, qualification for energy tax credits, and a deep pocket sill for improved water penetration resistance.
"Crystal windows were an excellent choice for the show since they offer incredible energy efficiency, great style and tremendous value - all critical factors for the project's success," said John Kane, regional sales executive for Crystal Windows.
"This is the second time Crystal Window products have 'starred' in an A&E 'Flip' Show. In 2008, the company's vinyl windows were included in a Connecticut house renovation for the 'Flip This House' show," said Steven Yu, Crystal's marketing manager.
The Crystal Series 200 vinyl windows used on the "Flipping Boston" project feature strong, multi-chambered extrusions, 3Â¼" jamb depth and full-welded sash and frame corners. The double-hung windows boast a distinctive and stylish curved exterior profile and clean, modern interior lines. The Series 200 features an insulating glass unit (IGU) with dual-glazing, and optional between-the-glass colonial grids. For this TV network project, an advanced PPG Solarban 70 low-E coating and argon gas filling were specified for superior energy performance. Crystal's standard Series 200 double-hung windows are Energy Star qualified, and as specified for this project, the windows are certified by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) as a "Green Approved Product."
