Plastic Windows Aren't the Answer

At Statera, we understand that anyone building a new Delaware home wants a high quality product.  We understand that your new Delaware home is a huge investment, and you want it be able to enjoy it for years to come.

We understand your fears about building a new home.  We don’t think you should be afraid to build new, we think you should be excited.  Our experience will guide you to a successful new build.

In our 35+ years of homebuilding, we’ve learned that quality starts with the materials in your new Delaware home.

At Statera, we think quality materials are essential to a new Delaware home.  We also know that if your compare our materials to other builders, you will quickly come to understand that Statera’s included features are the best in Delaware beach homes.

One example of Statera’s quality is in the windows we install in our new Delaware homes.  We use Andersen 100 series windows, and these are clearly superior to any vinyl window for two reasons.

Window Material:

Statera doesn’t use PVC windows in our new Delaware homes.  Our windows are made of a composite material that is much more stable than PVC in extreme hot and cold conditions.

The downside of Vinyl windows is the PVC material itself.  As you probably know, PVC’s characteristics change as the temperature changes.  When PVC is cold, it shrinks and can be brittle.  When PVC it gets hot, it expands and can become soft.

Vinyl windows do have some advantages.  First, they are far less expensive than windows that aren’t plastic.  Second, PVC doesn’t decay, rot, or support mold growth.

Vinyl windows are the preferred material for most new Delaware homes for the two reasons above, and many builders don’t want to mention the problems with vinyl.

At Statera, our windows are made of a composite material that doesn’t rot, decay or support mold growth- just like vinyl.  At the same time, our composite material is very stable at different temperatures.  So, a new Statera home will give you the best of both worlds for years to come in your Delaware new home.

Vinyl window manufacturers might say that vinyl windows are stable, but the reality can be seen in their product offerings.  You can’t purchase dark framed vinyl windows.  Why?  They can’t the heat in a dark color on a sunny day.  (Some window companies offer dark accent pieces that can be placed over the frames of vinyl windows.)

Andersen Windows

A Name You Can Trust:

As I said before, Statera installs Andersen windows in the new Lewes and Rehoboth homes we build.  Andersen was founded in 1903 and continues to be one of the largest window manufactuers in the United States.  Statera believes in Andersen because we understand that you home could have problems after the Statera limited warranty period ends.  We know that you will feel at peace that your windows are backed by a company that is, at the time of this writing, 115 years old.

This matters in new Delaware beach homes.  A large builder at the Delaware beaches used vinyl windows by a company called BF Rich for years.  This window company went out of business in early 2017.  Warranty repairs from companies that don’t exist are hard to get.

As we say, the ingredients matter.  A new Delaware home needs to perform well- not just now, but for years to come.  You can build confidently with Statera.
