The Pros and Cons of Picture Windows

Picture windows, also referred to as fixed windows, provide an excellent view of outside scenery. But are they right for your home?  You may find the answers in this article, The Pros and Cons of Fixed (Picture) Windows, which was published by HomeAdvancement.

Some of the pros mentioned in the article include: 

  • Because they do not open, they are some of the most energy efficient window types available
  • They can be used to accent other windows in homes
  • At $200 to $650 per window, they are among the least expensive window types you can buy
  • They bring a lot of light into the room

And some of the very few cons mentioned are:

  • They cannot be opened and therefore offer no ventilation
  • In the event of a fire or other emergency, these windows cannot be used as an escape route in homes

Overall, the author of this article thinks that picture windows are a great addition to most homes. You can learn more by reading the full article here.
