Window Style Series: The Big Picture on Picture WindowsJune 03, 2015
Are you looking to brighten up your living spaces? Do you want to have a more scenic view of the outdoors? You should consider having picture units installed. In this entry, we explain some of the benefits of this type of replacement windows in Waukesha.
What They Are
Picture windows are fixed; they can’t be opened or closed. They have one distinct use for your home—provide you with the perfect view of the outdoors. However, there are several other notable features you can benefit from when you opt to install this window style for your home.
- Low Maintenance. Because picture windows are fixed, they need no moveable mechanical parts that could easily get damaged from constant use. That can help you cut back on upkeep and repair costs. What’s more, newer picture units these days are made from the best yet lowest maintenance materials. Renewal by Andersen®’s replacements, for example, feature Fibrex® frames. This composite material is so durable that your windows can stay in shape for years to come even with minimal effort on your end.
- Energy Efficiency. Picture windows are known to let an abundance of sunlight enter the home. You’d think, perhaps they can make you feel uncomfortable indoors during summer. The trick is to pick a unit that features highly-efficient glass. Renewal by Andersen’s picture units come with High-Performance™ glass packages. These are covered with energy-efficient low-emissivity coatings that help keep heat where it should. They help you maintain cool temperatures even during the hottest days and keep your utility spending in check.
- Visibility. Natural lighting isn’t just about reducing your energy consumption. With strategically positioned windows, you can brighten up your living spaces and make them look more spacious and comfortable. A key element in the design of contemporary homes, natural light can give the visual appeal of your interiors a much-needed boost. When you install picture windows, you can impress guests with sunshine-lit rooms and perfect views at the same time.
