Gerkin Windows vs Storefront

Although Storefront windows are often used on houses, they can be very costly. In this video, Matt Risinger, master builder, shows us Gerkin Rhino Windows. This is a great high-quality alternative at a lower price point. Commercial grade and easy to install, Risinger walks us through the window construction and explains how the system is different than traditional window systems. It is important to get a structural head flashing in place on the top of the windows to avoid water intrusion. Window construction also provides an effective thermal break so that when it is hot, the heat does not transfer into the home. The Rhino Commercial Aluminum window and door series has several commercial window styles. The system consists of a commercial horizontal slider, casement, single hung, double hung, hopper, awning, fixed and patio door.According to Risinger, the screens are not the best-looking screens on the market since with commercial windows, the screens are more of an afterthought than a feature.
