Fast Facts About Replacement Specialty Shaped Windows

Specialty shaped windows offer dimension and character to a home.  Windows come in a variety of configurations, including triangle, octagon, pentagon, trapezoid, quarter round, circle, and eyebrow.  By utilizing uncommon shapes, geometric windows can effortlessly blend in with your home’s architecture instead of having to build out to stringent window dimensions.  If you’re contemplating home window replacement in the near future, here are some points to consider before committing to specialty shape windows.

Curb Appeal: With the integration of a geometric window, you can create a statement piece for your home that can be admired by visitors and those passing by.  Every custom shaped window will be the focal point of the room because of its uniqueness as a design element.

Operation: Specialty shape windows fall under the picture window category.  This means they are stationary and do not have the ability to be opened.  If the goal of your replacement window project is to expand the amount of ventilation within your home, forego the installation of a geometric window.

Architectural Interest: Since the majority of windows are square or rectangular, the installation of a specialty shape window is certain to provide an upscale look. They can be installed as a solo window or in tandem with another window such as an eyebrow window above a double hung window.

Additional Natural Light: By adding custom shaped windows to your home, you’re increasing the amount of natural light it receives.  Natural light offers an array of benefits including warding off seasonal depression, mood enhancement, and improved sleep patterns.  Geometric windows can work particularly well in rooms that are absent of windows.  It’s wise to remember that sun rises in the east and sets in the west so that you can determine if you would like enhanced natural light first thing in the morning or later in the day.

“The best thing about Lindus (besides the great employees and experienced carpenters) is that they back their work, even years after a project has been completed.  I had a small issue with some window trim that was installed a few years ago.  I called and Lindus was at my home within days and the issue was resolved to perfection.  Honestly, you can’t go wrong with Lindus, it is reassuring to know that the work will be done right, period.”
