  • The Advantages of Picture Windows

As the name suggests, picture windows act as a picture frame for gorgeous scenery outside, making them a great addition to homes in areas with stunning outdoors. And thanks to their expansive glass panes, picture windows provide plenty of natural lighting, which gives the illusion of a larger interior and brightens the mood inside. 

PJ Sullivan Exteriors, one of the most trusted window replacement companies, elaborates more on the unique advantages of picture windows below: 

Advantages of Picture Windows

Natural Lighting, Mental Health, and Airy Interiors

Picture windows can help improve indoor natural lighting, which gives the illusion of a larger interior. But how are natural lighting and mental health related? Studies have shown that improved natural lighting can help you improve your mood (your body produces Vitamin D, a micronutrient that can affect your mood, upon being exposed to natural sunlight) and get a better night’s sleep. (The soft warm light that’s only found in sunlight sends signals to our body to begin preparing for sleep.)

Important note: Sunlight can be too much of a good thing, which is why it’s highly recommended that you install energy-efficient picture windows. That’s because heat gain and heat loss through inefficient windows are responsible for 25% to 30% of heating and cooling costs, according to the Department of Energy. For more tips on making your home more energy-efficient, you can consult one of your local window and door replacement companies

The Need for Additional Ventilation Windows 

Keep in mind that picture windows can’t provide additional ventilation because they can’t be opened. To ensure there’s adequate ventilation inside your home, you’ll need to install smaller windows. To learn more about which windows provide the greatest amount of ventilation, consult a local contractor.

I hired Pete Sullivan more than three years ago to help replace a small section of siding on my suburban house in New Jersey. Since then, he has not only replaced all the siding and roofing on my house, but completely renovated the entire interior, a multiyear job that included moving many walls, installing new tiles for the entire first floor, completely renovating the kitchen, and building a new...

We were so happy with the roofing, siding and pertego job PJ Sullivan did for us. We couldn’t have asked for a better company to do this for us. Pete was very attentive and visited our home at least 3 times a week and that was important for us.
