Some of the most popular renovations when it comes to replacing windows or doors are Bay windows and the stylish French doors, especially when homeowners want to replace their sliding glass doors or those small bedroom windows. Because of the elegant addition that French doors and bay windows provide to a home’s architecture, there is no wonder why they are so popular among homeowners and they also provide both convenience and spaciousness, which are known to help increase the value of real estate.
Bay windows come from the Victorian style of architecture, which was really popular back in the 1800’s. One of the reasons homeowners love bay windows is that they give the illusion that a room is actually bigger than it really is as it projects outwards from the main walls of the home, as well as it increases the amount of sunlight that is entering the home. They also give a better angle of view when compared to standard residential windows.
French doors are like oversized casement windows that are the size of doors that normally open inside the home; they will have a sturdy frame around one or more translucent or transparent panels. These normally are used to replace sliding glass doors to lead out to the terrace, patio or other rooms of the house. The frames for the French doors are typically made of aluminum, steel, timber and UPVC or Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride, it is a form of PVC or Polyvinyl Chloride but it is more resilient and firm, which allow windows and doors to be energy efficient with dual glazed panels.
With dual glazing there is air or gas that is trapped in between the glass panes, which will create better insulation so that your home loses less cold or heat and it is also great for dampening out outside sounds by as much as 70 percent when compared to single pane windows and doors. And yes, this works in reverse, so if you have noisy kids or if you like to blast your music, this dual glazing will keep all the noise inside your home so you won’t disturb your neighbors.
Double glazed UPVC Bay Windows and French Doors are made with impact resistant glass, so unlike standard residential windows, these windows are not easy to break by the casual burglar or most hurricanes and they are available in several shades of tinting and different colors. They have a more modern look to them so they will increase the curb appeal of your home and they will make your home energy efficient.
These impact windows and doors are custom made to fit the exact window to space of your current window opening. When these doors and windows are installed properly, you won’t have to worry about rattling windows anymore and you won’t have to worry about your windows and door frames stripping every few years where you have to re-paint them so that they can look new again. So, since the frames are not wood, you won’t have to worry about the frames rotting, decaying or getting damaged by pests such as termites.
