Shopping picture windows can be an exciting time as there is a strong correlation with the design and overall image of the home.The dichotomy is that although the picture window makes such an impact on a home, they are service free and low maintenance.
Design and Remodel Consultant, Roldan Romero states, “one consideration is prevention against water intrusion – we generally suggest products that are built with a 3 stage prevention process and when installed, implement a 3-step process on the installation end – with Polyurethane caulking for the opening, back beading the window, and caulking around the window flange.”
Some insight from leading manufacturers - Picture Windows, also referred to as Fixed Windows, can be used as either as a standalone option or as a companion window to add visual interest and highlight the view. Picture/ Fixed Windows are non-operable but typically let in the maximum amount of light.They will often be the largest window installed. Picture Windows are often complemented by an architectural-style window above or casement, single-hung or double-hung windows on each side. Picture Windows may also come in a variety of shapes such as square, rectangle, half round, quarter round, circle, oval, elliptical, octagon, hexagon, trapezoid, eyebrow, triangle and peak pentagon.
