Discover Unrivaled Quality in the Top Gulf South Window Company

Home / LAS Manufacturing Facility / Discover Unrivaled Quality in the Top Gulf South Window Company

For more than sixty years, LAS has been known for its high-quality windows, doors, and shutters in the Gulf South. We are committed to making homes more beautiful and functional. As a family-owned window company deeply rooted in our community, we pride ourselves on our unwavering commitment to excellence, innovation, and customer satisfaction.  

Every window and shutter from LAS is more than just a product. They show our history of creating solutions for our climate, whether it’s hot weather, humidity, or storms. Our products are manufactured in our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, ensuring that every piece we install contributes to making your home more beautiful, energy-efficient, and resilient. Choose LAS, where quality meets craftsmanship, for a home that stands the test of time. 

Tailored Windows for the Gulf South Climate 

LAS is more than a window company. We have a tradition of excellence, innovation, and commitment to providing the best for our customers. Our special offer is our exceptional way of making windows and shutters. We make sure that each product goes above and beyond what homeowners in the Gulf South expect. 

In-House Manufacturing Excellence 

At the heart of the LAS advantage is our in-house manufacturing process. By controlling every step of the production in our Louisiana-based facility, we ensure the highest standards of quality are maintained.  

It is rare for companies in the industry to have autonomy in production. Autonomy allows us to innovate and quickly respond to customer needs and climate challenges in the Gulf South. Our skilled craftsmen have decades of experience. They put their expertise into every window and shutter they create. This ensures that each product is meticulously crafted. Manufacturing windows is one thing, doing it consistently for decades is the difference with LAS, a lifetime warranty from a manufacturer that hasn’t manufactured windows for long enough to deal with warranty issues, doesn’t mean a whole lot. We have seen manufacturers come and go as soon as the warranty claims start rolling in. 

The E-Glass Advantage 

Innovation at LAS is epitomized by our use of E-Glass in our windows. This low emissivity glass is a game-changer for energy efficiency, blocking out harmful infrared and ultraviolet light while allowing visible light to brighten your home. Our use of proprietary coating techniques reduce the glass’s emissivity, effectively keeping heat outside in summer and inside in winter.  

This not only ensures your home is comfortable year-round but also contributes to significant energy savings. Optimal coating orientation, designed specifically for the Gulf South, reflects solar energy away, further enhancing the comfort and efficiency of your living spaces. 

Why Choose LAS? 

Choosing LAS means investing in your home’s future. Our windows offer unmatched energy efficiency, as evidenced by our products exceeding the rigorous standards set by Energy Star Version 7.0. But it’s not just about energy savings; durability is also a cornerstone of our offerings.  

Our windows are designed to withstand the harsh storms and hot weather typical of the Gulf South, providing peace of mind and security to homeowners. The LAS advantage is a combination of energy efficiency, durability, quality, and innovation. We are not just a window company, we are your partners in making your home comfortable, beautiful, and resilient.

Our Products: Tailored Windows for the Gulf South Climate 

The Gulf South’s climate poses unique challenges for homeowners. That’s why we’ve developed a range of windows specifically designed to offer superior performance, durability, and energy efficiency under these conditions. Our windows are not just components of your home; they are investments in comfort, security, and energy savings. 

Types of Windows Offered by LAS 

  • Vinyl Windows: Renowned for their durability, ease of maintenance, and excellent thermal performance. Vinyl resists moisture and humidity, making it ideal for the Gulf South. 
  • Energy-Efficient Windows: Featuring advanced technologies like double glazing and triple weatherstripping to minimize heat transfer, crucial in our warm climate. 
  • Storm and Impact Windows: These windows are designed to withstand severe weather like hurricanes, making them essential for areas prone to storms. They offer peace of mind and increased security. 
  • Customizable Styles: From traditional double-hung windows to contemporary sliding designs, our windows come in various styles to match your home’s architecture and your personal preferences. Options include casement, awning, bay, bow, and more, each tailored for aesthetic appeal and functional excellence. 

The E-Glass Advantage 

A cornerstone of our window technology is the use of E-Glass, which significantly enhances the energy efficiency and protection of your home. 

  • Superior Energy Efficiency: E-Glass, or low-emissivity glass, blocks infrared and ultraviolet light from entering your home. It still allows natural light to pass through. This results in: 
  • Lowered cooling costs during hot summer months by keeping the interior cooler. 
  • Reduced heating costs in the cooler season by retaining warmth within the home. 
  • Protection Against UV Rays: Our E-Glass windows can protect your furniture, carpets, and artworks from fading and sun damage by blocking harmful UV rays. 
  • Proprietary Coating Techniques: LAS uses E-glass coated with thin layers of metallic oxides. These coatings specifically design for the environmental conditions in the Gulf South. This not only reflects heat away in summer but also retains interior warmth when it’s cooler outside. 
  • Customized for Our Climate: Unlike standard window products, LAS windows with E-Glass are specifically oriented and coated to reflect the intense solar energy characteristic of the Gulf South, ensuring your home remains comfortable and energy-efficient year-round. Since every window is custom measured and ordered, each window is sized perfectly for each opening. 

We are committed to innovation, specifically with our E-Glass technology. This helps make LAS windows the top choice for withstanding the harsh weather in the Gulf South. By choosing LAS, you’re not just installing windows; you’re enhancing your home’s resilience, energy efficiency, and comfort.

Choosing the Right Window Company: What to Look For 

Choosing the right window company is crucial. This decision can have a big impact on your home’s comfort, energy efficiency, and appearance. Here are key factors to consider, ensuring you partner with a company that meets your needs and expectations. 

Evaluating Product Quality 

  • Materials and Construction: High-quality windows are crafted from durable materials designed to withstand your region’s specific climate challenges. Look for companies that provide detailed information about the materials used and the construction process. 
  • Energy Efficiency Ratings: Energy Star ratings and other efficiency indicators, like U-factor and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC), are crucial. These ratings tell you how well a window will perform in terms of insulation and blocking solar heat. 
  • Design and Aesthetics: The best window companies offer a variety of styles and designs that complement your home’s architecture. Ensure the company can provide custom solutions if your home requires them. 

Understanding Warranties 

  • Comprehensive Coverage: Warranties are a testament to a company’s confidence in its product. Look for comprehensive warranties that cover not just the window but also installation and labor. This provides peace of mind and protection for your investment. 
  • Transparency and Clarity: A reputable window company will be upfront about what their warranty covers and for how long. Ensure you understand the warranty fully before making a purchase. 

Comparing Costs 

  • Value, Not Just Price: While it’s important to compare quotes from different companies, consider what you’re getting for the price. The cheapest option isn’t always the best value if it means sacrificing quality or energy efficiency. 
  • Long-Term Savings: Consider how the windows can save you money in the long run through reduced energy bills. Energy-efficient windows, though potentially more expensive upfront, can lead to significant savings. 

The Importance of In-House Manufacturing and Installation 

  • Quality Control: Companies like LAS that manufacture and install their products maintain tighter control over quality. This ensures that every window meets the company’s high standards from production to installation. 
  • Accountability: When a single company is responsible for the product and the installation, there’s no question of who to turn to if issues arise. This simplifies warranties and service calls. 
  • Customization: In-house manufacturing often allows for greater customization, ensuring that your new windows fit perfectly and perform optimally in your unique home environment. 

Choosing a window company is an investment in your home’s future. Look for a partner like LAS that offers quality, transparency, and comprehensive services, ensuring your home is equipped with the best windows for years to come.
