Single Hung Windows
The Single Hung window consists of an operable sash on the bottom half of the window. This sash slides up and down to open the window for ventilation, as well as tilting inward for easy cleaning. The top half of the window is fixed and does not tilt inward or slide so the vinyl can be formed into a special geometric shape like an eyebrow or half circle.
Double Hung Windows
Featuring a classic design, Double Hung windows are a very popular choice of homeowners. They have two sashes that tilt in for easy cleaning and slide up and down for maximum ventilation. Stainless steel coil springs support the weight of the sashes, making them easy to open and close.
2 Lite Slider Windows
A slider window is a horizontal window with sashes that independently slide back and forth. Both sashes move for easy cleaning. This window provides a contemporary look and is a popular option for spaces with more horizontal than vertical space.
3 Lite Slider Windows
A window in which both the left & right sashes opearate & slide horizontally past a middle fixed sash. Equal Lite configuration is where all sashes are equal in size (1/3 – 1/3 – 1/3) & Unequal Lite configuration is where the two outside sashes are same size, however inside sash is larger (1/4 – 1/2 – 1/4).
Bow & Bay Windows
All of these styles project into the outdoors and create additional space and dimension within your room. The frames of the window and also the head and seat board are constructed using only the most expensive 9 ply, Grade-A, hardwood plywood. The mullion posts between the windows in the unit are not only structural, but they are also totally filled with energy efficient die-cut EPS foam.
Garden windows are designed to let in maximum light to create a healthy growing environment for plants, while still maintaining energy efficiency. This window provides plant shelves to display plants, creating a stunning look in the home, creating a center piece of window style and function. The sloped external roof provides excellent drainage, yet allows the sunlight to flood the room. Operating casements in the window provide full ventilation and are standard with a full screen.
Casement windows are attached to one side of the frame with a hinge and open by swinging out from the window. Casement windows open with crank and feature a fold-away nesting handle as well as a multi-point locking system. Many homeowners choose our casement windows for their energy efficiency, security and aesthetic beauty. They can be joined together (mulled) and are available in double and triple casement combinations to create an attractive look in a wider space.

Low E – Energy Efficient Windows
A Low E window makes all the difference when you’re seeking energy-efficient windows. Energy-efficient windows that use Low E glass have proven to decrease the amount of infrared and ultraviolet light into your home. This is done through the thin, barely visible coating that is laid over the glass surface. This sometimes barely noticeable coating will filter the amount of heat that flows into your home through the window. The U-factor measures the flow of heat that passes through the window. With a lower U-factor like this, the insulation value of the window drastically increases. The whole point in having a set of fresh energy-efficient windows is that it should aid in controlling a fluctuating temperature and electric bill.
With energy-efficient windows that have Low E glass coatings, you can expect a cooler home that is less impacted by the sun’s harsh rays. These types of energy-efficient windows are best when you live in the South and have to constantly worry about surviving the heat and keeping your friends and family cool during the summer. Don’t let the cool air out of your home by not selecting the most beneficial, energy-efficient windows we have to offer at Acadia. By being extremely adaptable to the climate of your home, these windows are great in the winter too. The Low E energy-efficient windows will reflect warm air back into your home and keep the cool air out, especially when installed by the speedy and efficient installation technicians at Acadian. Believe it or not, these energy-efficient windows are the gift that keeps on giving year-round.
The Strong, Silent Type. A new laminated glass pane that protects against noise, airborne debris, forced entry and harmful UV rays.
A window is essentially a hole in your home, so strong glass is important to protect your family from the weather and intruders. Hero GlassTM is made with an inner layer of clear, PVB laminate and put through a special heating process, stiffening the pane so that it resists shattering much like auto glass.
A window’s sound-blocking ability is expressed as its STC (Sound Transmission Class). The higher the STC, the better. By adding a laminated glass pane like Hero Glass to your glass system you will increase the STC in your window providing you with a barrier to block sound.
Proud to Say that all of our windows are Energy Star and AAMA Approved.
Tested and Certified to meet the most stringent Coastal Building Code Requirements.
Our windows combine heavy-duty aluminum frames with impact-resistant glass. A special silicone glazing process keeps the glass from shattering. Although the outer-layer of glass may crack on impact, a special inner-layer keeps the glass intact preventing debris from entering your home or business. Our Impact Windows have been engineered to meet the most stringent wind codes in the country.
This remarkable product also provides protection to your draperies, rugs, and furniture from the sun’s damaging UV rays. Impact resistance glass reduces outside sound and traffic noise enhancing the serenity of your home.
If you’re looking for the perfect New Orleans windows, look into a set of impact windows. Even outside of New Orleans, impact windows are just what you need in hurricane-prone environments. Their strength makes them an excellent choice for homes in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. It’s the entire purpose of the impact-resistant glass to keep flying objects from crashing into your home during a fearsome hurricane. Impact windows are made with either tempered or laminated glass. Tempered glass is heated and compressed to create durability that is ten times stronger than that of traditional glass. Laminated glass binds panels of glass together with vinyl to form a shatter-proof set of windows that will withstand hurricane debris or your neighbor’s softball. Impact windows also serve as a steadfast deterrent to thieves and vandals looking to break into or damage your home.
