One of the simplest yet very appealing types of windows is the Picture window or a Fixed window. When placed in an area of the house that opens to a scenic environment, it can really be a welcome addition to enhancing the overall aesthetic value of your home. Whether in combination with a casement type of window or a double hung slider, the Picture window can allow for enhanced ventilation and superb thermal control for your home. Its energy efficiency is just one of the many features you will find useful. More importantly, it is the unobstructed view of the outside scenery that makes fixed Picture windows the most preferred window type among homeowners.
