Crystal Exclusive Window Supplier for TV’s “Flipping Boston” New Season
FLUSHING, NY, October 29, 2012 – Crystal Window & Door Systems, the national manufacturer of quality energy efficient windows and doors, has been selected as the exclusive window supplier for the A&E cable TV show “Flipping Boston” for the new Fall season. Crystal supplied a few individual projects for the prior seasons of “Flipping Boston” and its predecessor “Flip This House.” As a result, Crystal was approached by the show’s production staff and featured general contractors to be the sole provider of fenestration products for the new season, which premiered on October 13, 2012. While several episodes of the new season have been completed, production and installation of Crystal windows continues with future episodes.
–Manufacturer’s Quality Vinyl Windows Used for 13 Episodes of A&E Show–
“We were thrilled to be selected to provide all the fenestration products for the new season of ‘Flipping Boston’ on A&E,” said John Kane, Crystal’s sales executive for the “Flipping Boston” properties. “Crystal’s Energy Star® qualified vinyl windows and doors offer tremendous value, and the show’s planners appreciate the customer service and attention to detail Crystal provides.”
The current season of “Flipping Boston” consists of 13 episodes, generally featuring one property per episode, including single-, 2- and 3-family homes, and light commercial buildings such as restaurants. Properties highlighted are usually distressed and in need of significant renovation, and the show’s general contractors effectively transform these eyesores into profit-making beauties. Crystal windows are an important component of this transformation, maximizing value to meet projects’ more energy efficient specifications, constrained budgets and tight deadlines.
The Crystal Series 200 energy efficient vinyl windows used for the “Flipping Boston” season feature strong, multi-chambered extrusions, 3-¼” jamb depth and full-welded sash and frame corners. The Series 200 line includes double-hung, casements, sliders, pictures, awnings, hoppers, bays and bows, and architectural shapes. The windows boast a distinctive and stylish curved exterior profile and clean, modern interior lines. The Series 200 features a ⅞” insulating glass unit with dual-glazing, and optional between-the-glass Georgian grids. An advanced PPG Solarban 60 low-E coating and argon gas filling were specified for superior energy performance. Crystal’s standard Series 200 vinyl windows, as well as all of its other major vinyl product lines, are Energy Star® qualified.
Mr. Kane added, “The TV show’s staff selected Crystal windows for their wide range of styles and features, as well as the ease of installation. The new homeowners will enjoy the beauty, energy efficiency and ease of operation of the Crystal windows for years to come.”
