OTW at the International Builders Show

February 5th and 6th we visited The International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, NV. We saw some amazing displays and caught up on some of the latest products. If it hasn’t already become apparent, modern and contemporary design is hugely popular right now in new construction.
However, traditional building and design has not been forgotten. No matter the design preference, new high performance and innovative products are becoming more and more available.

Contemporary Design
While visiting the Kolbe Window & Door booth one word came straight to mind; Innovation. It makes us so proud to be part of the Kolbe family when you see a collection of windows like Vista Luxe. No other manufacturer is doing anything like the Kolbe Vista Luxe collection. Modern, clean, energy efficient, design oriented and beautiful. It blends the modern design of square, sleek, slim aluminum on the outside and warm beautiful wood on the inside. A true hybrid of design and technology. You really have to see it to grasp what these windows are all about.

Traditional Design
Not only contemporary designs were on display, beautiful traditional doulbe hung and casement windows were shown. Kolbe is truly diverse and concentrates on design and high quality engineering.

Mica Exterior Finishes
Another new option available by Kolbe is the new mica exterior finishes. These finishes have the same 30 year warranty as the 70%PVDF Fluoropolymer Ultra finish but have a metallic like look. Mica comes in 13 finishes and are a great addition to the extensive design options by Kolbe Windows & Doors.

New VistaLuxe Contemporary Windows by Kolbe


Introducing the VistaLuxe collection of windows by Kolbe Windows and Doors!

Appealing to design-savvy homeowners, the VistaLuxe Collection gives architects the flexibility to harmoniously combine multiple units into unique, compatible configurations, while maintaining symmetry and sightlines. VistaLuxe Collection windows and doors are designed to be mulled together, combining function and style while maintaining a sleek aesthetic. An industry-leading frame-to-daylight-opening ratio lets the view take center stage through these sleek, sophisticated windows and doors.


Collaboratively developed with architects for contemporary designs that utilize clean lines and multiple units to create large expanses of glass, the VistaLuxe Collection allows you to create an opening as unique as your project. An extruded aluminum exterior provides low-maintenance durability, while a wood interior proves modern design can be warm and efficient.
