Parade of Homes Winner: New Construction Best Builder Award


New Construction Project

North Western Supply and Al Lopez Signature Homes worked together in creating a Ranch/Split-Level styled home that was developed for the Grand County Parade of Homes, 2008. Being out in the wide-open country, the goal was to capture the amazing views of the landscape from as many different rooms of the home as possible.

Vinyl Windows Enhance the View

Adding 60 windows to this single-family home allowed not only lots of natural light to flood the home, but, it also helped to enhance the amazing view.

Energy Efficient Windows

The builders installed Milgard® Tuscany Series® double pane, vinyl windows and selected an energy efficiency package that exceeded ENERGY STAR® requirements in the area. The crisp look of white vinyl windows complemented both the interior and exterior of the home.

Even Sight Lines

Choosing windows with even sight lines provided an aesthetically pleasing feel to a home. The wide frame shape, similar to the appearance of a wood window, offered a traditional look.
