Every window style offers wonderful features all by itself, but combining at least two of them multiplies their utility. Whether you do it for aesthetics or functionality, the right window combination would hit both.
As the authority in window replacement in San Antonio, Southwest Exteriors wants to share some brilliant ideas for forging different window styles to improve your home in many ways. Get inspired with these tips:
A Bay with Casement Sides
A bay window normally comprises a fixed center panel and movable sides. Instead of using double-hung fixtures, the casement is a better choice. Unlike double-hung, casement windows can be opened completely, allowing maximum ventilation. Opening both casement side panels lets the stale indoor air out and the fresh, cool drafts in.
When they’re closed, they boost your home’s energy performance. Of all the operating window types, the casement offers the tightest seal when shut, and therefore the most efficient.
Tired of the usual squares and rectangles? Bring more geometry into the picture by adding arched windows above the transom of your double-hung fixtures. If you prefer a different shape, we specialize in 13 standard glass configurations so you can customize the shape of your specialty replacement windows in San Antonio.
Apart from lending more drama and interest to your architecture, a transom fixture allows daylighting to continue even if you cover your double-hung windows for privacy. The unconventional glass cut also produces artistic illuminations and shadows inside the house.
Around-the-Corner Window Wall
Recommended for small rooms with scenic outdoor views, getting rid of your wall corners would create an illusion of space and a seamless connection to the outside world. If ventilation and insulation are both a significant concern, use a combination of picture and casement fixtures to solve both problems. To find out any structural challenges the project may entail, our product consultant will probe for any possible issue during your initial appointment for your San Antonio window replacement.
