A few weeks ago, Windows on Washington wrote an article about why we love the Starmark Evo by Okna. We received such a great response from you all so we thought we would do a follow-up article about the different types of windows the Starmark Evo range offers. In case you missed the article, here is a short recap on why WoW’s clients have been so impressed by the Starmark Evo window series!
The Starmark Evo by Okna offers homeowners an elegant and modern window that looks like wood, but has the incredible benefits of vinyl windows, such as low maintenance, energy efficiency, durability and much more. Another benefit of the Starmark Evo is that whatever replacement window you choose can be uniquely made to match your original architecture with the look and feel of an authentic wood window. It also offers excellent energy performance and surpasses the most rigorous Energy Star requirements – and that is just the start! Some other amazing features include:
- Comes with endless exterior color choices and unique hardware options
- Can be shaped to suit your home
- Beautifully crafted and incredibly strong and secure
- More energy efficient than other leading windows
- More durable than vinyl and wood windows
- Certified by the AAMA (American Architectural Manufacturers Association)

Double Hung Windows
If you are looking for double hung windows, The Starmark Evo Window authentically represents a wood window yet without the pesky down-sides (think: termites, the need to repaint and the hefty cost). The Starmark Evo double hung windows even feature the smallest details of wood windows, such as the rounded bevelled edges of the glazing bead that you find on classic wood windows. No one will know it is not wood! And, you will not find any foam filling or hollow frames – the Starmark Evo windows have a solid frame structure with excellent durability and energy efficiency. And, its double hung windows have rigid, extruded interlocks at the meeting rail, which basically means it provides a tighter air seal to minimize drafts.
Sliding windows have a range of benefits but perhaps the window style’s best feature is the amount of sunshine it lets in, coupled with an unobstructed view to the outdoors - perfect if you have a beautiful garden or nature view outside your home. Also, Starmark Evo’s EZ Glide Track System contains an anodized aluminum track and precision ball bearing wheels, which essentially means it provides a smoother glide and is easier to open. The Starmark Evo sliding windows come in a range of glass options and internal grid patterns too.
Casement & Awning Windows
Starmark Evo casement windows have a unique and beautiful design while still retaining its inherent functionality. It is the perfect window for both single window units and for creating multiple windows like bows, bays, pictures or your own combination. The casement opens to a full 90 degrees for maximum ventilation, and it is easy to clean from inside your home. The Starmark Evo awning windows also offer a sleek, contemporary look and works best in areas with obstructions. They open easily for air circulation, while also protecting your home from the outside elements. And, unlike other casement products, Starmark Evo casement and awning windows come with a multi-point locking system, which helps to decrease air infiltration while also maintaining structural stability.
Bay and Bow Windows
If you want to brighten a particular room in your home, bay and bow windows offer a nice touch. They are the optimal window for creating eating nooks, bath surrounds or even mini greenhouses! Starmark Evo bay and bow windows are made to order, making them completely unique to your home and personal style. You can choose the degree angles to create any look you want. And, once you have chosen the perfect angle for your home, Starmark Evo bay and bow windows can be built in an endless variety of sizes.
