Windows for Great Views of the OutdoorsMarch 16, 2018
Is your home surrounded by a lush landscape that makes for beautiful views? If so, then you need to invest in replacement windows that maximize the view.
In today’s post, [company_name] discusses window styles perfect for framing stunning views, which also provide excellent energy efficiency and performance.
The best window style for framing panoramic views is unquestionably the picture window. These windows feature a vast expanse of glass with a thin frame to maximize the view. Bear in mind that picture windows are inoperable (meaning they can’t be opened or closed), so if ventilation is a concern, you may want to consider the alternatives below.
Double hung windows have two sashes that allow them to open vertically. They provide an almost unobstructed view of the outside. Apart from the center sash, there’s nothing there but clear glass to let you enjoy the view.
Casement windows swing open outward like a door. This classic window style can feature expansive glass unmarred by any obstructions, yielding clear views. Casement windows can complement both modern- and traditional-style homes.
For areas where an out-swinging window like a casement window is not an option, sliding windows make a great alternative. These windows feature thin frames, yielding an expansive glass area for an optimal view of your outdoors.
If you’re worried that your choice of bigger glass areas on your windows will make you and your belongings vulnerable to UV-ray exposure, fear not. We offer high-performance glass packages with special coatings that block these harmful rays without sacrificing daylight or clarity.
