Imagine windows that don’t open. It may be hard to understand, but even windows like these do serve a purpose. Picture windows are fixed windows that do not open like traditional windows. They are usually installed in hard-to-reach places to let in natural light. For unobstructed views where ventilation is not a concern, picture windows are ideal. In a location like San Diego, installing picture windows is a great choice because of the amount of natural light received each year as well as the natural views. These windows frame beautiful views just like a portrait.
Picture windows create a portrait-like space on walls and are also a popular choice for letting in natural light without cold air in areas of a room that may be most susceptible to drafts or in large rooms with vaulted ceilings, for instance.
To maximize a picture window’s performance, adding insulated glass is a great option for increased comfort in the home. Milgard-brand picture windows offer insulated glass which is actually a combination of two or more panes of glass with a hermetically sealed air space between them.
Optional inert gases like argon or krypton may be used between panes to further improve thermal performance and energy savings.
Milgard offers their classy, yet stylish picture windows in a variety of models, including the Quiet Line, WoodClad, Ultra, Essence, Tuscany, and Montecito series among others, and US Window & Door is proud to install them as either new or replacement windows. Choose from any of these models and see how adding a window can do so much more than simply let you see outside.
