Architectural Advantages of Geometric Windows

Consumer,Home Improvement,Interior Design
Geometric windows that are round, oval, octagonal, half round (radius), or other shapes prove that a window does not have to be rectangular to be a beautiful, functional opening to the world outside. While you may want to install them for their aesthetic beauty, it's important to know that you do not have to sacrifice anything in utility and energy efficiency.

Why Install Geometric Windows?

You may want to install geometrically shaped windows for largely aesthetic reasons. For example, you would like to add interest to a room, while bringing in light and fresh air. Or you may want to enhance the style of your home with a traditional or contemporary cathedral window. If you have a dark corner or a room with high ceilings, adding an unusually shaped window can brighten up a space in an interesting way.

You even have the options of choosing glass that is textured, colored, or stained. Some companies offer standard decorative patterns with brass, zinc, or black caming between the sections, but you can have a window made in virtually any design you want. You can even have a window made to match the pattern or decorative elements on door inserts.

Beauty and Energy Efficiency

By choosing a geometric window, you are not making a frivolous choice. Geometric windows are produced by major window companies who understand the impact windows have on the energy efficiency of your home. As a result, any geometric product you buy will have the same labeling as conventional rectangular windows; indicating solar coefficients, R values, U values, and Energy Star compliance. Many are dual pane, gas-filled, low E insulated glass to assure that they will not be drafty or leaky..

Whether you buy from a major window company or from a big box store, you can review the specs and see that a geometric window is a smart energy choice. For some locations, where opening the window serves no purpose, you can buy a stationary window with the same energy efficient properties as sash or casement windows. These windows reduce the amount of heat that goes into and out of your home and can even dampen sound. As with other types of windows, you should buy them based on your location and climate. For example, someone in California might buy earthquake resistant windows, whereas someone in Florida would buy hurricane resistant windows.

Proper Installation is a Must

To enjoy all of the efficiency and beauty of decorative geometric windows, they must be properly installed. Improper installation not only voids the warranty, but you may be left with leaky, poorly fitted windows. Here are a few things to remember when adding these beautiful features to your home:

Consult local building codes regarding installation. Not every geometric window is suitable for installation in your home.

Installation 35 feet or more above ground level may require approval by an architect or structural engineer. The window openings product must be square, level, and plumb for a proper, snug fit.

For the best results, you can't go wrong with professional installation. If you want to add beautiful geometric windows to your home, consult with your local window specialist for great selection and dependable, professional installation.
