Windows are vented barriers installed in a wall opening to admit light and air into a space. It also gives the inhabitants a good view of the outside world, as well as “beautify” or add charm to the building itself.
One does not simply choose a window style at random. There are a few criteria that need to be met before making any concrete plans. Things like the location of the room, the direction of the wind, climatic conditions, the purpose of the room, and the size of the room all have to be considered beforehand. The experts here at Veteran Alliance Construction Group can help you in both the decision and creation process.
A window can come in different shapes, sizes, and are built with different purposes in mind. Here are some of the types of windows you may encounter when making home additions in Riverside, California:
- Fixed windows.
The sole purpose of this type of window is to let light in.
- Pivoted windows.
Pivoted windows have shafts that help oscillate the shutter. This type of window allows light and ventilation in a room.
- Double-hung windows.
Much like pivoted windows, these also let light and air inside a space, however, they can be opened or closed from top to bottom.
- Louvered windows.
If you want both style and privacy, then this type is for you. Louvered windows allow air into a space while blocking the view from the inside and out.
This can be a lot to take in, especially if you’re still new to new home construction in California. But don’t worry because our staff will be around to help you.
