THE SIMONTON SILL
The Simonton Sill is another example of innovation by the largest replacement windows manufacturer in the United States: It’s triple-stepped to keep rain away from your windows. The concept is simple; if you have steps in your home’s exterior—perhaps leading up to your front porch, or up to your deck in the back yard—you can try this on your own. In the fall, when your yard is full of leaves, get a garden hose, stand by your front door or on your deck, and use the water pressure to clear leaves off the porch or deck, down the steps. It’s a pretty easy task. Now walk down the steps and use the water pressure to get some of those leaves up the steps—from the ground up to your front porch or deck. It’s much, much harder. As for the water itself, it flows easily down your steps, but it certainly can’t flow up even on an upward slope, let alone steps. It may sound pretty simple, but the triple step is not a common feature of window sills. It’s a great example of how much attention to detail Simonton pays to the design of its windows. That’s why it has been around for decades, and that’s why it’s the natural partner for Ridge Top Exteriors: We are picky about the windows we install and just as picky about the quality of the installation.
