Can you imagine a home without windows? If not for windows, the interiors would be dark and dreary, and probably feel stuffy.
Glass windows along with doors offer substantial structural stability to your home. The entire layout of your home is planned based on your window and door placement.
Glass windows are also responsible for ventilation and cross-ventilation. They provide a smooth passage for fumes, vapors, and air to flow in and out of the home. This prevents the indoors from feeling stifling and stale.
If you have no window, your interiors would never see the light. Your windows allow natural light to flood in, creating a brighter and more cheerful indoor atmosphere for your home.
Lastly, glass windows add to the overall aesthetic appearance of any space. That’s why you should consider your windows as vital amenities.
Why Choose Glass Windows?
Fortunately, glass is no longer a fragile component. Like other things, it has undergone several technological advancements to become stronger, durable, and invulnerable to stress-induced impact-resistance, thermal insulation, acoustic insulation, and more.
Most of all, glass is easy to maintain. It collects no dust or corrosion. That’s why glass is the best material for windows.
Below are the most overlooked benefits of glass windows.
Different Glazing, Different Benefits
There are a variety of glazing solutions available nowadays for glass windows. Each glazing solution offers different functionality. Based on your architectural needs, you can choose an appropriate glazing solution.
There are different ranges of glass available- frosted, tempered, laminated, tinted, low-E, fire-resistant, acoustic glass, among others.
If you want an energy-efficient window, using low-E glass windows is recommended. Their high thermal insulation property can prevent heat ingress significantly. Moreover, they offer protection against solar glare and harmful UV rays.
If you want safety and security, use safety glass such as tempered or laminated glass. In case of breakage, these glasses shatter away into blunt, cube-like pieces or remain stuck to the special PVB interlayer in between, respectively. This lowers the risk of serious injury.
Furthermore, single, double, triple, and even more glazing solutions can be used for glass windows. They are a highly customizable architectural element.
A Wide Variety of Styles Available
Glass is one of the most versatile architectural elements. You can use it to create multiple window styles. Glass windows are compatible with most window styles – whether nay, double-hung, casement, slider, or top-hung style.
You can consider bigger window frames for unobstructed outside views or smaller frames when the space is limited. They can be outfitted with diverse profiles such as wood, aluminum, or uPVC to create the look you want. Also, they can be painted or powder-colored to complement the overall color scheme of your home.
Whatever is the interior décor in your home, without fitting windows, your interiors will look odd. In fact, glass window styles have a major influence on the overall space of your space. That’s why choosing a style that complements your interior and exterior décor is vital.
Ventilation and Lighting for Brighter Indoors
If there’s no easy passage for air, your home’s indoors will become stifling. When there is no proper provision for ventilation, your space will start to smell foul. Living in such a home means inviting health risks, for it becomes a breeding ground for germs, mold, and mildew.
Glass windows can solve this problem. They can keep the indoor atmosphere comfortable and healthy by offering a passage for seamless airflow. They help in facilitating ventilation and cross-ventilation. However, you need proper window placement for this to happen.
