What are Picture Windows?
Picture windows (or fixed frame windows) are non-operable windows that pair perfectly with any standard operable windows. Their stationary design provides an energy efficient window with beautifully large views. On sunny days picture windows, with their simple but impactful design, allow natural light in and help you reduce your energy costs. Picture windows are an excellent choice for the hard to reach spaces as well, like high walls in a vaulted room.
Why Choose Picture Windows?
MORE LIGHT – A popular choice for homeowners wanting to add more natural light or make a room appear larger.
BETTER VIEWS – Large glass panes allow you to capture the Alaskan scenery, bringing the outside into your home with unobstructed views. They are available in larger sizes than any venting-style window.
ENERGY EFFICIENT – With high-performing thermal properties that excel even in the harshest climates, our windows will help your home stay warmer in winter and cooler during summer. As a result, help you save money on your energy bills
