Parkersburg, WV (Vocus) April 8, 2010
Simonton Windows® has introduced a variety of popular exterior color options in its Decorum™ by Simonton line of window and door style solutions. This new assortment of durable, eye-catching colors includes Brick, Chocolate, Bronze, Cream, Driftwood, Pine and Tan.
Available in April 2010, these exciting new exterior color options can be combined with interior laminates and hardware finishes in the Decorum by Simonton line to create a stylish, personalized look, both inside and outside the home. Homeowners can combine any of these exterior colors with White, Tan, and rich, authentic Antique Cherry, Maple and Contemporary Oak woodgrain interior options.
Premium hardware finishes in the Decorum line, including Brushed Nickel, Oil-rubbed Bronze, Polished Brass, Dark Bronze, White, Driftwood and Tan, can be selected to complement and create a customized look.
“Both interior and exterior options in the Decorum by Simonton line are remarkably durable and designed to keep their good looks for years to come,” says Joshua Wagner, product manager for Simonton Windows. “Color-matched, sculptured grids and screens are also available so that windows and patio doors may be tailored to the exact desires of a homeowner.”
The durable Decorum by Simonton products are designed to appeal to the growing consumer trend to integrate the color of windows and patio doors into the overall look of the home. A limited 10-year warranty is available on the exterior colors that covers peeling, blistering and corrosion, and significant ultraviolet fading or discoloration caused by natural conditions. Unpainted vinyl components are covered under Simonton’s vinyl lifetime warranty. (For additional information, visit http://www.simonton.com/decorum.)
“Imagine a brick red window frame set against pure white clapboard siding on a Federal-style home in New England,” says Wagner. “Next, think about that same window with a warm maple interior and dark bronze hardware. The personalized combination can be stunning."
“Or, consider the homeowner in Colorado who wants a pine green window exterior for his mountain cabin with a white interior, enhanced with brushed nickel hardware. The customization ideas for homeowners are truly endless.”
