Style and Size
When installing new windows or replacing old ones, the shape and style of your windows is equally as important as their function. Black windows have become increasingly popular in modern trends, along with shapes like arches or ovals to add interest to your design! Keep the opening style in mind for different spaces: sliding windows allow for better access to a patio from the kitchen, while tilt or casement windows allow better privacy and security.
Before ordering your new windows, it’s extremely important that the correct size is determined. If the windows are being installed in new construction, the width and height will be based on the stud frame opening, also called the rough opening. After measuring the stud opening, subtract at least ½ inch from both the height and width to allow for shimming and insulation.
