About the Project
This project is located in Newport Beach, California, USA, which is a personal villa. We are proud to tell you more about it. The main window type is thermal break aluminum with teak wood interior cladding French windows. Thus, it remains the beauty of wood and great energy efficiency, low maintenance, and good finishing of thermal break aluminum profiles. We also offer solid wood entry doors. Double-pane fully tempered Low-E glass is our standard option to meet the need of performance. By the way, all these glazing and profiles are under the US building codes and energy-efficiency standards.
This huge and complex project was the homeowners’ dream for a long time. Built mainly with stone, it is enriched with wooden and metal elements, giving the feeling the house is composed of different structures. Due to the dimensions, the first requirement was to open the house to daylight, installing massive windows and doors all around the house to get a good sunbath atmosphere interior.
Created high floor-to-ceiling glazed structures to maximize the exposure to the light of rooms. teak-clad thermal break aluminum guarantees high-efficiency insulation meanwhile extra anti-corrosion and extreme weather resistance.
If you’re looking for a timeless and elegant window that will let ample natural light and fresh air into your home, then a French window could be a great option. With an ancient heritage and a wonderful ability to bring completely unobstructed views to your home. Doorwin’s French windows are more resistant to blustery weather while maintaining functions like airtightness, alternative ventilation way, and accessibility; As for the cost, a regular wood casement window average costs 400-800$ in the US market while our French windows just need 300-550$ with higher standards in manufacturing, hardware, and energy efficiency abilities.
Solid Teak Wood Entry Doors
Besides being energy efficient, wood exterior doors are trendy and timeless. Wood doors boast a sense of comfort and nature at home, which cannot be provided by fiberglass or aluminum. With origin unique wood grain, the beauty of wood doors goes beyond descriptions.
We are into the field of windows and doors for years; our professional manufacturing process and delicate workmanship make our solid wood exterior doors recognized by many clients. We are able to provide many qualified wood types, such as pine, oak, cherry, larch, maple, mahogany, teak, etc. We apply German environmentally friendly water-based paint to meet the need of health while remains the vivid texture of the wood. For wood species, we carefully select the quality woods from their origin places. Our oak and pine are from USA or Canada, teak is from Southeast Asia.
01 / Drawings
After we go through the plan drawing with the client, we decide to recommend him the teak-clad thermal break aluminum with a tilt-turn opening, based on the client's preference and our design experience. Tilt turn window is a popular window type in Europe, but it’s not common in America. The tilt-turn window features dual functions through the orientation of the handle. When it turns 90 degrees, it’s a casement. When it turns 180 degrees, it’s a top-opening hopper. Tilt turn window combines the advantages of casement and hopper. We strongly recommend it to our clients.
02 / Hardware
For the Hardware System, Doorwin uses Siegenia multi-point locks, hinges, and handles from Germany. With top burglar-resistant, the handles come with a long backplate in solid aluminum. The cylinder is practically inaccessible and the long backplate is almost impossible to remove. And the high-quality components, each is capable of sustaining 400lbs for high security and longevity. The friction stay is tested for more than 400,000 cycles, to put this in perspective, a window that is opened and closed 10 times a day should last at least 100 years before failure.
The multi-point locks system also provides better sealing and contributes to the insulation performance of the whole building. Together with Technoform Bautec’s insulation edge bond and sealant strips, these make up the top insulation and energy-saving performance of our products.
03 / Profiles
Doorwin’s teak wood is well selected from the origin places in Southeast Asia. As one of the fabulous hardwoods, teak is known as the king of the wood favored by many homeowners and construction professionals. It‘s durable, easy finishing and precious wood, which is good for flooring, stairs, and windows.
For this CA project, we used the teak clad thermal break aluminum profiles. Finest extruded aluminum profiles with a thickness of 1.4 mm to provide excellent durability and strength. With a polyamide bar (Polyamide 66, or Nylon 66) PA66 applied in the middle of aluminum profiles to break or insulate the heat and cold, thermal break aluminum profiles perform much better than standard aluminum. Fully tempered glass with 5mm thickness and spacer of 9mm to meet the need of performance.

Wood-clad Aluminum vs. Alu-clad Wood
In Doorwin, we provide not only wood clad aluminum profiles but also aluminum clad wood profiles.
First, you need to know the difference between wood clad aluminum and aluminum clad wood. The main profile of aluminum clad wood is solid wood, and only the side facing the outside is aluminum, for better durability; The main profile of wood clad aluminum is thermal break aluminum, and the side facing the interior of the building is wood, for aesthetic purposes.
Usually, customers like to choose aluminum clad wood rather than solid wood profiles, because the exterior aluminum profile makes the whole window and door maintenance-free. But the disadvantage is also obvious, aluminum clad wood is more expensive than pure wood windows, not to mention the comparison with aluminum windows. Customers who want an internal wood window style may be discouraged by the price. So, when the customer wants interior wood decorations but budget is not enough, we will recommend the wood clad aluminum profile.
04 / Glazing
Our energy-efficient integrated glazing units (IGU) feature double-pane glass, warm-edge spacers, argon gas fill, Low-E coatings, and fully tempered glass, they can not only create a comfortable and natural indoor environment but also save electricity bills and heating bills around 300~500USD per year according to your whole building’s fenestration areas. That’s a real bargain compared to choosing a regular glazing set.
05 / Seamless Welding Joint
Advanced seamlessly welding joint technique is applied on the four corners of the aluminum side to weld the joint and ground smoothly. Resulting in not only a stronger weld but also creating a seamless join and high-quality finish.
06 / Customized SDL with Warm Spacers
Doorwin’s simulated divided lites are permanently adhered to both sides of the glass and are available with a Technoform Bautec™ high-performance spacer bar installed between the glass to create even more depth that resembles authentic divided lites.
All these detailed decorations are customized to suit your aesthetic requirements without any loss of energy efficiency.

01 / Easy Installation
Firstly, is easy installation. We have several international patents to reduce clients’ labor costs, such as our unique flanges and assembly type tubular design. It helps to easily install the windows. You cannot easily find the nailing flange in other companies, which is what sets us apart from our Chinese counterparts is that all our products are equipped with nail fin structures for quick and easy installation. Labor costs during installation may exceed the window and door prices, therefore, the longer the project takes, it means you are losing money. We help our customer make the work done in a shorter time. In this way, we save more money for them.
02 / Maintenance Free
Secondly is easy to repair. Our company have been providing quality windows and doors to the USA for years, our customers are satisfied with our window quality and performance, they get back to us with testimonials and they are glad to re command us to new buyers.

The TPS glazing ensures that no air leakage and fogging issues on (IGU) products for 25 YEARS WARRANTY.
03 / Minimum Manufacturing Time
Thirdly is about the manufacturing time. It’s common hesitation when you buy windows from a foreign company. I would like to send you pictures and videos to have a look at our factories. We can finalize the production in about 18 days and shipping to you cost 30 days if it’s an urgent project. In about 45 days you will receive your windows. We are taking the same manufacturing daytime as you buy locally.
Our products are manufactured in 3 wholly owned manufacturing plants across China, a large state of the factories, sufficient to supply the largest projects, whilst remaining competitive. Over 100,000㎡ factory area with 500,000㎡ /year production capacity, so that means we can make the fastest possible production and fastest delivery of our products to meet clients’ time demands.
04 / Save Overall Cost
Fourthly is cost. The most concerning problem is cost. We offer transparent pricing for our customers. The price we offer is the price you will pay after the final purchasing decision, with no additional or extra cost. You can compare our prices with local manufacturers.
