Picture Windows

If your home overlooks a beautiful view, you will certainly want to consider getting our Picture Windows. These windows transform the beauty of the outdoors into a “picture.” Picture windows are usually larger windows that do not have breaks and cannot be opened. They offer an unobstructed view which is why they are ideal for enjoying the outdoors from the comfort of your home. They also provide a considerable amount of light into the home.

Picture windows are large, fixed-pane window, generally made without glazing bars. A picture window gets its name from the fact that it is designed to give you a clear view of your surroundings without any obstructions—essentially acting as a picture frame for the scenery outside the window.

Picture windows are normally inoperable, so they provide no airflow or ventilation benefits, but their fixed-pane nature makes them highly energy efficient. If you are looking to increase the natural lighting in your home and create exceptional views of the outdoors, but prefer a window that does not open, a picture window is perfect for you.

Although picture windows can be virtually any size, they are often large, designed to highlight attractive outdoor scenery—making them popular for living and dining rooms where homeowners spend much of their time.

In these situations, it is important to ensure that you choose picture windows with highly energy efficient characteristics. Windows are inherently inefficient when compared to traditional building materials, so you want to make sure that your windows incorporate energy-saving features to keep your energy bills under control. These are an excellent option if your home has a view.
