Windows may be far from being the most prominent part of your home, but they play a crucial role in your home’s overall visual style. While conventional options like casement, bay and bow, double-hung and sliding windows are easy choices, you might be looking for something that can truly bring out your home’s unique look and feel. This is where specialty windows come to mind.
In this blog, window and gutter installation contractor Burr Roofing, Siding, & Windows takes a closer look at these special types of windows and their advantages.
About Specialty Windows
Specialty windows feature custom-made frames, which means they don’t follow standard measurements. These are often installed in areas of the home where regular windows don’t fit. Although they function the same way as the conventional ones like double-hung and casement windows, specialty windows are notable for how they appear.
Specialty replacement windows are available in all shapes and sizes, allowing you to use them in many different ways to complement your home’s architectural style. To give your property a more “organic” feel, consider those with curved arches or circular frames. Taller arched windows help intensify height for your home’s façade. Those with noticeable lines and angles impart a more dynamic effect.
Advantages of Specialty Windows
Investing in specialty windows offers many benefits, including the following:
- Unique Aesthetics – It doesn’t matter if they stand on their own or provide an accent to conventional windows; the many different shapes of specialty windows are sure to draw attention from anyone, whether from the curb or the inside.
- Increased Natural Light – Combining a specialty window with a regular window increases the glass area, allowing more natural light to illuminate the indoors.
- Improved Energy Efficiency – Specialty windows are installed straight to the frame, ensuring an airtight seal that boosts insulation and your home’s overall energy efficiency.
