Advantages of Picture Windows

With so many home renovation projects to choose from, it can be difficult to know which ideas to prioritize. But adding picture windows is one of our favorite transformative undertakings, and in this post, we’ll explain why– just in time for those beautiful late spring and summer views!

Why Window Replacements Are Important

At Schaefer Exteriors, we champion products that are environmental and budget-friendly, and vinyl replacement windows satisfy both counts and more. We carry Simonton Windows, which possess a high quality of craftsmanship and a durability to match. The product incorporates multiple panes of glass that minimize heat transfer and improve your home’s energy efficiency. These eco-friendly building materials reduce the amount of energy needed to cool and heat a home, as less warm or cool air is allowed in or out of the unit. Your HVAC system will face less stress and risk of overuse with energy-efficient windows, saving energy and lightening the load on your wallet.

Damaged or worn-out windows also allow moisture to seep into your home, bringing the risk of mold and fungus growth. As time passes, this causes your walls and floors to weaken, especially as mold growth occurs in areas that you might not notice right away. It;s important to have your windows replaced in time to keep your home sealed up tight.

The Practical Value of Picture Windows

Picture windows are described as large panes of glass that don’t open, primarily to allow for full view of the outdoors. This way, you won’t have to worry about leaving the windows open during a rainstorm or while the A/C is on! It also allows for tighter sealing and an unobstructed view without doubled panes or insect screens standing in the way. You can gaze out with nothing between you and your views but a thin pane of crystal-clear glass.

The Aesthetic Appeal of Picture Windows

If you love watching the sunset or looking out over your yard, picture windows are probably for you. Let the sunshine stream in and bring gorgeous natural lighting to the rooms of your home, opening up even the most cramped of spaces. Whether you’re outside or in, a wall of beautiful picture windows is a sight to see! Just draw the curtains whenever you wish for more privacy or invest in tinted glass so you can see out without any nosy passersby peering back in. Picture windows are also perfect for reading nooks, sewing rooms, and the like, where you’ll need plenty of light but may not want to plug in a dozen different lamps. Add a cozy window seat and you’ve got the perfect hideaway!
