Why install picture windows?


When choosing new windows for your home or office, there are a number of points to keep in mind. Not only do you need to choose the right spot for the window, but you also need to consider the size and type of window. With so many choices, it's important to understand the benefits of different types of windows.

 

Picture windows are incredibly popular for a number of reasons. These windows do not have any operating mechanisms, and they do not open. They are fixed in place and, as you look out this window, it will appear as though you have the perfect framed view of your yard.

 

Since these windows do not open, their purpose is not ventilation. However, they are fantastic when it comes to letting in light and making a room look more spacious thanks to the view of the outdoors. Their main purpose is to act as a decorative item in the room similar to a framed photo or mirror. That said, when installing such a window, make sure that the view is a pleasant one! Some examples include the view of your garden or swimming pool. If there is something unsightly like an old fence or shed, take the time to restore it so that it's no longer an eyesore.

 

Natural light is excellent when you want to cut electric costs. Why turn on the lights in your home when you can let nature take care of your interior lighting? Sure, you will still need to use your lights at night, but at least you don't need them in the day! Natural light is also beneficial when it comes to your mood, and it helps ensure a healthier sleep cycle.

 

Another great benefit of these windows is the safety aspect. If you want to let in some light without worrying about your little one accidentally opening the window, this is the perfect solution! You can add awning windows above these picture windows for ventilation if you like. Remember, children and babies also need natural light. It helps young babies settle into a regular sleep pattern, and the view can prove particularly stimulating too.

 

Remember, when you install any window, energy efficiency is obviously of great concern. The best approach is to invest in high-quality vinyl windows with Low-E glass. The numerous chambers in the window frame improve the effectiveness of the window. Low-E glass and triple pane glass significantly improves the energy efficiency of the window by effectively keeping the cold out during the winter and the heat out in summer. When choosing your picture window, make sure that you look for these features. They will make an immediate and long term difference in your home.

Alex and the team at north shield were amazing. Great customer service, along with a great team of installers. North shield replaced my 2 front living room windows in 1 day. They even took away my awning! Highly recommended

Jim gave us a great price, and I was also very happy with the installation team. Great workmanship, product, hey we’re friendly and clean. I am left feeling good about the company we chose to do our windows. I would certainly not hesitate in recommending them.

Andy and his crew installed the windows as agreed and were extremely pleasant. The cleanup was exceptional. They arrived on time. I would recommend North Shield to anyone looking for new windows. The service was incredible, The pricing was very good. The sales person Jim Scammel was very informative and knowledgeable. We had quotes from five (5) companies and feel good with our decision. The overall product was exceptional, but Andy was the STAR!!!! We did 17 windows and a door, so this was an important decision to our family.

We love our new windows. It was a challenging job for the guys as we are on the second floor of a condo but they were very professional and up to the task. Windows look great inside and out.

We had our windows installed last summer and absolutely love them - especially the large kitchen window. Our sales rep Jim S. was terrific and knowledgeable. The installers did a professional, skilled job of installing our windows. And the windows themselves are high quality, easy to open and easy to clean - as well as reasonably priced. We are very happy with our entire experience with this company and highly recommend them. Thank you!
