Picture Window Installation in River Forest IL. Replacement and New Construction Picture Windows.
Here are a few things to consider before installing vinyl picture window in your River Forest property.
Although vinyl picture windows are best to create an unobstructed view from the interior of your house, you need to remember that picture windows are stationary / non-opening type and will not provide any means of ventilation.
Ventilation and air exchanges are regulated by building codes, also, natural ventilation (i.e. provided by windows) can be substituted with mechanical systems. Therefore, you should always consult your River Forest building inspector when in doubt.
Depending on room configuration and wall area available for window installation a picture window can be combined with one or a couple of double-hung, casement, or slider type windows. This would solve ventilation issue and still provide almost the same amount of light for your room.
Just like any other type, picture windows are available with different glass types, grid designs, and colors.
