Remodels are changing with the times. Today homeowners expect their remodels to not only improve the look of their houses, but also the function, energy efficiency, and comfort. Truitt & White is proud to offer products that reflect these industry trends, including LaCantina Doors, a respected brand that has recently been added to the Truitt & White lineup.
Renowned for its innovative bifold system, LaCantina Doors satisfy the remodeling market's current demand for balancing energy performance and aesthetics. LaCantina doors can replace entire walls with banks of retractable glass doors that maximize views, minimize electricity use, and create new sources of passive solar gain. More than just a door, LaCantina Doors contribute to improved natural daylighting and fresh air ventilation, both of which are fundamental components of green home upgrades.
"LaCantina door systems are exceptional at accentuating views and capturing natural light," said Truitt & White's Christine Thatcher, a LaCantina specialist. "For Bay Area remodeling projects that are focused on creating strong indoor/outdoor relationships, the various LaCantina models can be key to dazzling and substantial transformations."
The New LaCantina Aluminum System
One of these models, the LaCantina Aluminum System, is now on display at the Truitt & White Window and Door Showroom. Strikingly clean and narrow, the Aluminum System features a 2 ¾" stile and rail profile that channel outdoor light and emphasize view orientation. Suitable for both residential and commercial projects, these doors truly reflect a contemporary style with an exclamation point on progressive green design.
Since offering this product to our clientele, the Truitt & White team has seen the dramatic effect that LaCantina Doors can have on a residence. "One of our customers in Danville has a spectacular view of the Diablo Valley, and they really wanted to bring the outdoors in," said Thatcher. "LaCantina was the right choice for this project because they wanted to highlight the view orientation with a full wall of glass. The home required custom heights and widths, but because this is one of the company's specialties, LaCantina was able to beat out the competition in terms of both price and quality."
