Most vinyl windows look like vinyl windows there is a feature not many offer it is called s.d.l. SDL= simulated divided light, if you want all the benifits and advantage of vinyl but still want to maintain the historic look of old wood windows the s.d. L. is the answer. we provide these by two different manufactures. one is OKNA and one is affinity, both are high quality, well made , very energy efficient andbuilt to last. we service the new york metro area but if you are out side of New York contact them diffectly and they will send a rep from your area.
