“Whether it’s a bathroom setting that demands the ultimate in privacy or a kitchen that overlooks a neighbor’s ugly garage, privacy windows have become the solution for builders,” says Roger Murphy, president of Hy-Lite, a U.S. Block Windows Company. “There are two specific reasons we’re seeing why builders are increasing their use of specialty windows.
“The first is to set their homes apart with unique, personalized windows in the home that new home buyers can get excited about; that creates a desire for sales. The second is because home lots are getting closer and closer in some geographic areas — and builders want to create secluded home spaces. Decorative glass and acrylic block windows solve both these needs.”
Offered as both fixed and operable units in a variety of sizes and styles, acrylic block and decorative glass windows have become a go-to solution for builders throughout the country. For 15 years the team at Eastwood Homes has relied on Hy-Lite windows for their new construction needs throughout North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.
“Eastwood Homes returns to using Hy-Lite products because the windows are an attractive and affordable feature which allows our buyers to enjoy privacy in their master bathrooms while still taking advantage of the natural sunlight,” says Justin Myers, corporate vice president of operations for Eastwood Homes. “The Hy-Lite windows are much more attractive than other alternatives for adding privacy to a large window over a soaking bathtub.
“Across our six divisions, Eastwood Homes uses Hy-Lite products in approximately 200 homes annually as an option in our deluxe master bathrooms.”
Acrylic block windows and wall systems from Hy-Lite come in a variety of frame color options, plus block sizes and styles. Custom configurations are available for personalizing space in the home.
