When it comes to replacement windows, you’ll either get the standard ones or choose to have them custom-made. You may think that standard windows are cheaper to get for your home, but the benefits you’ll gain from specialty windows are more cost-effective in the long run. Not only will you get your very own specially-made window, but you’ll also get better energy efficiency and comfort!
More Customized Options
Unlike standard windows that are available at a lumber yard or a hardware store, you can choose to have your specialty windows made according to your needs and preferences. They practically come in different shapes and styles, so it won’t be hard to create a specialty window that’s unique to your home’s architecture.
Having a custom-made window replacement may also be your best choice if you own an older home. This is because today’s standard windows may not fit certain window openings of older homes. With specialty windows, you get greater flexibility in styling and aesthetics, which means they’ll look and perform better in your home!
More Glass Area
When you use standard windows and your window opening is larger than the sizes available, the gaps around the frames are usually filled with sheet rock or molding before being patched and painted. This isn’t needed when you get specialty windows, since they’re made to fit the openings perfectly. And since there’s more glass area when you have your windows specially-made, you’ll also maximize your viewing area.
Better Energy Efficiency
You’ll get more instances of air infiltration and drafts when you go for standard windows, which forces your air conditioning to work harder to keep the temperatures cool indoors. This also means more energy consumption, which isn’t very efficient. But specialty windows are made to fit the window openings of your home, which means there are virtually no air leaks around their frames!
