There are lots of things you can do when you decide to get replacement windows in Dallas, TX. You could get a different material for the frames or you could get a different color. You can change window styles or even add windows in new locations. You can also take out a bank of windows that sits all together and put in one big window, like a picture window or bay or bow window. Here are some reasons you might want to make that change:
You’d Like A Larger View
While you can see quite a bit through the bank of windows, there are frames between them and, if they’re double hung, slats that run across them as well that interrupt the view. You can get a wider, more expansive view from a picture window. Bay and bow windows are great if you want a panoramic view that will help you see different directions at the same time.
You Want More Natural Light
Window banks can bring in a lot of light, but again, they are limited because of their interruptions. When you get a picture window, the light is uninterrupted and comes in through every square inch of the glass. You don’t have to worry about the light heating up your home, either, because you can get low-E glass which blocks UV rays and the heat of the sun.
You Don’t Need Ventilation
If you don’t care if that room has windows that open, or you have enough that open in other locations in the room, you can get a picture window and not mind that you don’t have a window that opens and closes. Bay and bow windows have some functional windows, at times, but they aren’t as large as other window styles.
You Love Efficiency
There are some operational windows that are more efficient than others, like casement is more efficient overall than double hung. But there are no windows more efficient than picture windows. If efficiency is highly important to you, you could upgrade your home by removing windows that could leak someday and replacing them with a picture window that has no moving parts and no options for leaks.
These are just a few reasons to consider adding a picture, bay or bow window to your home in the space you now have a bank of windows.
