There are plenty of things to decide when you are looking into new windows in Rocklin, CA. But wouldn’t it be easier to just choose some standard windows and go with those? You wouldn’t have to go through the extra hassle of making the detailed decisions. Sure, that’s a valid option. But when it comes to your home, nothing is standard. You want things to be just as you want them…and that means the windows as well. Custom windows take a few more decisions, but in reality, they are well worth the time and effort. Here’s what you can expect from custom windows.
You can measure your windows on your own and get some idea on what sizes you will need, but you will also have window professionals come to your home and take exact measurements. If you are simply replacing the windows you have with new windows in the same size, that’s a fast and easy process. But keep in mind that when you get custom windows, it’s a good time to make any changes you might have in mind. You could make that picture window in the living room into a bay window, for example. Or widen that small window in the kitchen to let in more light.
When it comes to custom windows, you get to pick and choose all the details. You’ll probably start with the frame material and decide between wood, vinyl, clad wood, and aluminum. All of the options can work well and you will have to look at the details of each and decide what’s best for your home. Vinyl is the most popular option, but that doesn’t make it right for every home.
You will also want to pay close attention to the glass type so you get the energy efficiency you want in your home. Custom windows come with double pane glass as a standard, but you can upgrade to triple pane glass as well. You can also get a low-e coating on it or fill the interior between the panes with argon or krypton glass for further insulation. You can also get tinting or even blinds between the panes.
The hardware seems like a small detail, but it can really stand out in a home. You can get a number of different finishes including brass, bronze, copper, chrome, nickel, or even white or almond. Examine your home’s style to make the right choice for the hardware on your custom windows.
Custom windows include a lot of details, but once they are in place, you will glad you went with something that fits perfectly instead of something standard that might not have all the details you wanted.
