They are designed and look exactly the same as the representative said they would. One of my favorite things about the windows is the security. We feel safer than we?ve ever felt in any home. The police report showing that a burglar was unable to break-in with a shovel, SOLD US! We like the fact that the windows tilt in from top or bottom. Another aspect we really like is that the home we previously resided in had mold & mildew growing in the windows. Reece?s windows are so insulated that we aren?t concerned with that happening. We are thrilled with out new windows!
