The Ultimate Florida Window Company

By Ilyne Hayes We manufacture, we install, we guarantee,” declared Earl Rahn, co-president (along with his wife, Amy) of NewSouth Window Solutions. “We go out of our way to make it easy for the homeowner, so that they only have to deal with one company when they are ready to replace their old windows and doors.”

This single source accountability, along with cutting-edge engineering and manufacturing, as well as their ecologically responsible ideals and practices, are what have made NewSouth Window Solutions the top company of their category in the country. With their acquisition by PGT Innovations last year, they are well on their way to being the most successful window and door business in the world!
PGT Innovations, a 40-year-old window and door company, introduced a perfect addition to the NewSouth product line-up: Eze-Breeze screen and vinyl doors and windows. Also made in Florida at the NewSouth factory in Tampa, Eze-Breeze provides homeowners with the opportunity to expand their comfortable living space by screening in porches, patios and garages. The heavy-duty vinyl panels help protect outdoor furniture and fixtures from rain and dust, and will allow you to enjoy the outdoors all year round. The screened panels are there to keep pests out, and to allow the Florida breezes to flow through during our more temperate months.
During hurricane season, NewSouth Window Solutions’ iVantage windows and doors give your home the best defense against the high-velocity winds and flying debris carried by storms. Like their popular eVantage glass, their iVantage windows are also energy efficient while providing crystal-clear views to the outdoors. They use Hydroshield technology to repel dirt, so that their windows clean easily, maintaining their clarity.
While hurricanes are a very important consideration when constructing windows for Florida homes, so is turtle nesting season, which begins in April and ends in September, with thousands of hatchlings trying to find their way to the water. Earl Rahn wanted to be ecologically responsible and keep the turtles from being misled by the reflections from shiny windows, so he adopted “Turtle Glass 340,” which had been developed by Cardinal Glass in Ocala. This glass is non-reflective, yet still energy efficient, so that coastal homeowners can enjoy the comfort, safety, efficiency and views that the windows provide, but also rest easy knowing their windows won’t interfere with the baby turtles’ trek to the sea.
Rich Groff, Western Regional President of NewSouth Window Solutions, explained the benefits that they offer their customers, “You’re buying direct from us, so you are getting the best value for the highest quality window in the State of Florida. We give you a lifetime warranty, not prorated, which is the best warranty in the industry. You’ll never have to worry about your doors and windows again.”
NewSouth Window Solutions is known as “The Florida window factory,” and Earl and Rich are happy to say that theirs is the Ultimate Florida Window, Made in Florida, For Florida Homes, By Florida Workers.
