Not everyone wants something straight out of the box. Sometimes our house-building plans make it impossible to use ready-made windows, too. Maybe you’ve created your dream custom home or need to replace a quirky, old house window. This guide will help you navigate the world of custom windows.
If you’re replacing an old window, your window opening is likely of an unusual size. If your home is historical, you can almost guarantee that you’ll need custom windows, as old houses were built according to different standards than our modern standards. Sure, you could get a window from the store and try to make it fit, but you would need to patch the areas that are too big for the window, which is an added cost. Though custom windows can cost an extra $200 to $400, they are worth the reduced hassle.
Maybe you’d like an extra special look with your new windows to go with your stylish home. With custom windows, you can create all kinds of aesthetics to match your decor and design. With a ready-made window, you’re generally stuck with whatever styles are already on the market. By designing a custom window, you can make it fit your home and your personality and have it match what you love.
While you should always jump for double-paned, energy-efficient windows, you can apply some efficiency standards to custom windows too. Make it triple pane, add an extra special weather strip, or upgrade the window’s coating to boost its efficiency power. Choosing a custom window gives you an immediate energy efficiency boost. You’re ensuring the window is a perfect and tight fit by creating a window that precisely fits your window opening. This fit means less air leakage and no unwanted drafts to crank up the utility bill.
