Windows are a transition material in construction, visible from both the interior and exterior of a building. When properly designed and placed, windows have a dramatic effect on the look and feel of any project.

Effective lighting spaces are also critical, even more so in today’s environmentally conscious marketplace. Today’s buyer has to consider not only the energy efficiency of a given window product, but also its durability for the climate, and its ability to provide proper lighting to further reduce energy consumption.

Simkins-Hallin Lumber has aligned itself with some of the leading window manufacturers from around the world. We have a long standing relationship with manufacturers that are universally trusted like Andersen Window. Early on we realized the architectural potential and value offered by Eagle Window and Door. Nationally know vinyl products like Atrium and Milgard are a staple for us. We also supply quality built European style windows.

From the economy and efficiency of vinyl windows, to the luxurious warmth and quality of solid wood and wood clad windows, we offer the appropriate products for your project. We routinely supply windows for projects that range from low-cost apartments to incredible custom homes and large scale commercial buildings.

Energy Savings

Windows manufactured with low e-films typically cost about 10-15 % more than regular windows, but they reduce energy loss by as much as 30-50 %.
