October 11, 2010

Picture windows are fixed glass units that are often used along with other types of windows such as double-hung, casement, and awning windows. Because they are designed to complement these other window types, they have many standard sizes in common with a variety of windows. There are usually standard picture windows sizes available from manufacturers that can slide directly into existing window openings without any modification necessary. If you have a unique sized opening that standard picture window sizes won't fit, picture windows are one of the easiest window styles to have custom made.
