Window Size: Choosing the Right One for Your Home

There are many important decisions you’ll have to make during a window replacement – and one of these is window size. To determine the right one for your home, you’ll need to consider a few essential factors, including the following:

  • Local Codes and Regulations
    While you’re generally free to make your new windows as large or small as you want, you still need to take your local building codes into account. They’ll dictate the applicable width and height of windows in certain areas in your home like the bedroom, bathroom and basement. These requirements exist for your personal safety, so it’s best to comply with them.
  • Daylighting
    You can also base your choice of window size on your daylighting needs. For instance, you can have larger units, such as picture windows, installed to better illuminate areas that don’t see much sunlight. These are usually rooms that face north or south. But installing bigger windows in these areas comes with another benefit. Because they don’t receive direct sunlight, you can enjoy maximized outdoor views without the excess heat transfer.

What Specialty Windows Can Do for You

Most replacement windows, however, come in standard sizes to better fit along existing wall openings. These can severely limit your choices – unless you go for specialty windows from Renewal by Andersen® of Houston.
