That’s the inspiration behind JELD-WEN's contemporary models in their Custom Window & Door line, which offers those with a passion for contemporary and modern architecture the opportunity to create their own unique door and window styles using a combination of intriguing details and natural materials such as glass, metal and wood.

Over the years, contemporary homes have proven themselves to be among the most popular of styles, and JELD-WEN experts foresee a continued growth curve in the years to come.

In fact, the Perfect Home Survey, a nationwide study of homeowners commissioned by JELD-WEN, found that respondents identified contemporary as the second-most desired style of home in which they would like to live.

However, as it often does during the Title 24 energy calculation process, preserving the homes desired energy efficiency standards presented significant challenges and in this case as most, would not be compromised.

California Bay Area Swatt Miers Architecture was introduced to JELD-WEN's "Custom" wood clad narrow sight-line window and door product offering. They were amazed to discover, in addition to  enhanced energy efficiency, far more desirable and affordable  design options in terms of warm wood species, interior & exterior finishes, architectural profiles, design pressure performance options, and overall esthetics.  swatt panos24

They discovered "the look" was similar in terms of accomplishing wide-open spaces and narrow site lines yet the energy efficiencies of wood clad windows and doors proved far superior to aluminum.

Testimonial Kim Freitas-Homeowner

'After looking at many window options for my new family home we decided to use Western Windows (via Associated Building Supply in the San Francisco Bay Area, CA). Western offered the quality the architect demanded, the production efficiency and delivery time the contractor needed and the pricing and energy efficiency we were seeking as owners. Natural light and openness are the major design feature of our new home and Western Windows contribute to the beauty and harmony of this new living space.'
