Jeld-Wen introduced its new EpicVue line of windows and patio doors. The clad-wood windows and doors let in abundant natural light, the company says. There is also a “direct set” option for corner windows to create panoramic views. The wood is treated with AuraLast to protect it from rot and termites. EpicVue products are available in nine different wood species and five stains.
