Picture windows are fixed windows, which means they can’t be opened or closed. These large expanses of glass have one use — to frame a beautiful view. Picture windows are often found in homes with high or vaulted ceilings and they’re often installed as an arched window over vaulted areas, doors, and other windows.
The benefits of picture windows are:
- Cost– Picture windows are fixed, so there are no mechanical parts to break. This eliminates the costs associated with purchasing replacement parts. The lack of mechanical activity also means the windows cost less than other similarly sized windows with moving parts.
- Heat gain– During the winter months, the heat from the sun helps warm the room. Using a natural source of heat reduces heating costs.
- Natural light– Picture windows come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but even small picture windows allow lots of natural light in.
Picture windows are the perfect choice for any home in the Greenville, Spartanburg, Anderson, and surrounding areas. Call LeafGuard of South Carolina & Upstate Home Exteriors at (864) 558-7754 to learn more!
