FLUSHING, NY, June 24, 2019 –National manufacturer Crystal Window & Door Systems was pleased to announce its products played the leading fenestration role on a recently filmed episode of the Emmy Award-winning home improvement television show George to the Rescue.  This NBC TV series features the efforts of home improvement contractor George Olyphant to provide critical contractor renovation services for the houses of families in dire need, such as suffering a serious family illness or other crisis. George to the Rescue is entering its 10th season and will air on NBC’s NY Metro Area broadcast affiliate Channel 4 in the fall.

Crystal donated windows and a sliding patio door for this George to the Rescuerestoration project at a modest one-story ranch home in the New York City suburb of West Orange, NJ.  The home improvement project for an immigrant family from Guyana included restoration of the kitchen following a damaging fire and a bedroom makeover for their young son suffering from a serious illness.

“Crystal was invited to participate in this heart-warming project by host George Olyphant’s team, and we didn’t hesitate to help,” said Steven Yu, Marketing Manager for Crystal.  “We knew our popular energy efficient vinyl windows and patio doors would be perfect for the project.”

For the kitchen remodel, Crystal donated two twin Series 300 single-hung tilt-in sash vinyl windows and a Series 1500 vinyl sliding patio door.  The Crystal Series 300 2-⅝” jamb twin units use a continuous head and sill frame to horizontally combine 2 single-hung windows.  The Series 300 features fusion welded frame and sash corners, constant force balances, and a ⅞” insulated glass unit (IGU).  The Crystal Series 1500 vinyl patio door has a 4-⅝” frame depth, fusion welded frames and sashes, an extruded frame screen, and strong, safe tempered glass lights for the 1” IGUs.For enhanced energy efficiency, the Series 300 and the Series 1500 both used Vitro Solarban 60 low-E glass and Argon gas filled insulated glass units.  To facilitate easy installation and maintenance, the windows and door feature integral nailing fins and a standard white extruded finish.
