Sierra Pacific Windows, the newest addition to Marsh Building Products, comes from Sierra Pacific Industries, the largest millwork producer and second largest lumber company in the United States. With four different window styles, four different materials, and the exclusive Architectural Wall System, Sierra Pacific Windows are perfect for new construction, replacement, coastal, and commercial applications.
The company began in 1949, Archie Aldis “Red” Emmerson and his father leased a sawmill together and formed R.H. Emmerson & Son. Over the next twenty years, Red and his father accumulated more and more land and lumber interests and eventually incorporated as Sierra Pacific Industries in 1969. To this day, Sierra Pacific Industries remains a family owed business lead by Red’s sons, George and Mark with six of his grandchildren involved in the day-to-day operations.
One thing that sets Sierra Pacific apart from the competition is their ability to control the entire process of window production, from the seedling to the finished wood window. Sierra Pacific owns the land on which the wood is yielded and sent to one of fourteen sawmills owned by the company. The next step is converting this lumber in a state-of-the-art millwork facility to components for your windows. Final assembly of Sierra Pacific windows is completed in one of three world-class manufacturing facilities.
Because the process is completely controlled by Sierra Pacific, the standard of excellence remains the same throughout the process, producing windows of the highest of quality. These top-of-the-line windows are available in eight different styles and four different materials:
- Single and Double Hung
- Horizontal Slider
- Special Shapes
- Bay & Bow
- Aluminum Clad
- H3 Fusion Tech
The aluminum clad and all-wood windows come in all eight styles, while the H3 Fusion Tech comes in awning, single and double hung, horizontal slider and special shapes. The complementary line of Sierra Pacific vinyl windows is available in casement, awning, single and double hung, horizontal slider, and special shapes.
Aluminum clad, all-wood, and vinyl are great material in and of themselves but if you want the best off all three, check out the H3 Fusion Technology™. The fusion of all three materials improves energy efficiency and performance, enhances aesthetics, creates an extreme seal, and provides an easier installation.
As residential and commercial designs moved toward a more modern feel with increased use of glass, clean straight lines, and transparency between indoor and outdoor living, Sierra Pacific introduced their Architectural Wall System. With 2 styles, sloped glazed and vertical glazed, these wall systems are great for any home or commercial building seeking that one-of-a-kind look. Made with glue-laminated Douglas fir interiors and extruded aluminum exteriors, these wall systems offer load bearing capabilities in addition to contemporary beauty. Tested to ASTM standards for air and water filtration and structural wind load performance, the systems meet today’s energy standards for energy loss and solar heat gain.
Lastly, to complete your wall system, Sierra Pacific offers an extensive range of windows, patio doors, and specialty doors that can be integrated into the wall system. Like the system itself, these windows and doors will have all-wood interiors and extruded aluminum exteriors. Create expansive openings with your choice of multi-slide, lift and slide, and bi-fold doors that beautifully tie the interior of your home to the great outdoors.
We are proud of our new relationship with Sierra Pacific and look forward to growing opportunities for our customers and their clients with these exceptional products.
