Why should I buy custom replacement windows?
Custom windows fit perfectly. Stock windows, like those used by builders or sold in lumber yards, are available only in certain sizes. Since many window openings are not the same ‘standard’ sizes as stock windows, you’ll be left with several inches of open space around the entire window. Carpenters generally fill this space with gypsum board or molding. This not only reduces your viewing area and detracts from your home’s beauty, but you have extra wall space to patch, paint and decorate. Custom windows are designed, engineered and manufactured to fit your home’s size, style and appearance without reducing your viewing area.
Do I have to replace my windows with the same style windows, or can I choose a different style?
You can replace windows with any style, shape and color that suits you. Change from double-hung windows to casements, stationary windows, or a combination. Give rooms a new look by replacing a group of windows with a bay or bow window, or add a garden window in the kitchen. A different window style can make you feel like you moved into a new home use your imagination!
What features should be considered standard when I buy custom replacement windows?
It depends on the manufacturer. Be sure you understand what is considered standard with the type of window you want, and which features are optional and may add to the cost. The manufacturer should make it easy for you to differentiate a standard versus an optional feature.
