Soft-Lite was founded in 1934 and has come to be known as a leader in the replacement window manufacturing industry.

In early 2012, Soft-Lite purchased another window manufacturing company, Gorell Windows and Doors, which was founded in 1947. Over the years, both companies have been committed to developing thermally efficient products with excellent performance ratings. Together the combined companies now offer the largest selection of vinyl window and door product lines available to specialty retailers and dealers in America.

Soft-Lite Gorell creates products that exceed industry standards and customer expectations with windows that are AAMA Gold, NFRC, and Energy Star certified.  The company manufactures window lines with industry leading performance characteristics, such as .16/.17 U-Values, .01 and .02 air infiltration, and design pressures in the LC-60-65 arena.  With the addition of the Gorell product lines, Soft-Lite Gorell also now offers replacement windows with safety benefits such as Armor Max, and Armor Impact hurricane glass.


Soft-Lite Gorell offers windows for every budget. The company offers everything from top-of-the-line, extremely energy efficient windows with triple pane glass, SuperSpacer, Krypton Glass, and 2 coatings of Low-e in a Comfort Foam filled sash, and frame, to affordable windows that offer a lot of great features but aren’t at the highest level of energy efficiency. The company’s window lines include:

  • Elements® windows 
  • Imperial LS™ Soft-Lite Pro™ and Soft-Lite Classic™ windows
  • Bainbridge™ and Barrington™ windows
  • Barrington Limited™ window

Due to the acquisition of Gorell products it also offers:

  • 5100G Series     
  • 5300G Series
  • 5400G Series
  • 5300G Armor Impact Plus™ Hurricane window
  • 5400G Armor Max Plus™ Hurricane window

In addition, the company offers Bay windows, Bows, Garden Windows, Casements, Specialty Shapes, Picture windows, sliding patio doors, hinged patio doors, fiberglass entry doors with beautiful stained and cut glass choices, and super strong storm doors.


The latest innovations include:

  • New maple woodgrain. Five woodgrains are offered: light oak, medium oak, cherry, Brazilian cherry, and maple.
  • Unlimited exterior colors. 14 colors are standard, however, through a unique color-matching system, any color a homeowner wants to match on the exterior of her home, can now be achieved.
