Picture Windows & Fixed Windows in Denver
Wholesale Home Improvements, Denver, Colorado
Picture windows are stationary, rectangular, non-opening windows that bring a ton of light into a room. Aesthetics wise, the amount of light you can create is one of the biggest draws of the picture window. You can use them to light your stairs during the day instead of using a light fixture. You can also create an entire picture window wall to frame your gorgeous view of the Colorado Rockies.
Because a picture window doesn’t have hardware or any mechanisms for opening or closing, you won’t have to pay for repairs to any of these components down the road. Plus, a sealed tight window will have fewer gaps than sliding or double-hung windows. That means better insulation and less risk of air or water leaks. On the flipside, if an errant football takes out a picture window, you’re paying for the entire window to be replaced – whereas a sliding window might only need a partial replacement.
One of the downsides is that a picture or fixed window does not open or provide ventilation. However, with the help of Wholesale Home Improvements of Denver, your picture window can also be combined with other window styles to give you both ventilation and light. We also offer Energy Star window options to help with the heat gain issues inherent to picture windows.
