What Makes Specialty Windows – Special?

Windows come in several different styles, and each one has distinct advantages that help elevate the look and function of your Clarksville, TN, home. Take casement windows, for instance. They come with a neat and timeless design that lends itself well to traditional homes while the sizable opening they create allows for greater natural ventilation. There are picture windows, which can maximize your viewing area and access to natural light with their slim frames and expansive glass. And let’s not forget sliding windows, which make for a more accessible home, thanks to their smooth and effortless operation.   

What Makes Specialty Windows - Special?

Every window style is lovely and functional, but there’s one particular option that many find truly special, literally. If you plan on getting a window replacement, you should definitely consider specialty windows. Here’s why.

Enhance Both Doors and Other Windows

Most replacement doors and windows can be customized to better fit with your home’s overall look. But if you want to take their design to the next level, you can use specialty windows as accents. A classic hinged French patio door, for example, is already pretty by itself, but adding a large arched or chord specialty window above it can maximize its look. A picture window can frame a stunning outdoor view to great effect, but you can also “frame” the picture window itself by having specialty windows flank it on both sides. There are so many ways you can highlight your existing windows and doors using specialty units. 

Create an Instant Focal Point

While they make a good job of it, using specialty windows only as accents would be a real shame. Have them live up to their name by making them the actual center of attention in the room. The fact about specialty windows is that they’re not readily available in home improvement stores; you need to have them customized so they can fit perfectly in your home. What’s more, they come in a wide array of unique shapes, which you can mix and pair together to create interesting combinations.

Improve Your Home’s Energy Efficiency

Specialty windows are not only about aesthetics. If you choose them for your window replacement project, you can expect improved home thermal comfort and energy efficiency. That’s because they’re designed and crafted to precise measurements. They’ll fit into the window openings perfectly, allowing for little to no gap between the frames and wall. The airtight seal they create helps stop drafts from leaking into your home, which in turn, prevents significant energy loss.

Renewal by Andersen specialty windows take this further with our advanced High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass. It reduces heat transfer into your home during summer while ensuring that valuable heating energy remains trapped inside during winter. By keeping your living space thermally comfortable in any season – sans the higher energy costs – our specialty windows make for a worthy investment in every Tennessee home.

Keeps Your Home Secure

Don’t let the delicate look of specialty windows fool you. With the right choice of framing material, they can withstand the harsh elements and improve your home’s security. Specialty windows from Renewal by Andersen, for instance, use a revolutionary composite material, Fibrex®. It combines the strength of wood with the low-maintenance performance of vinyl, allowing for windows that remain impervious to cracking, pitting, warping, rot and corrosion. Fibrex is not easily affected by weather conditions and other external forces. Its durability will help you get the most out of your window replacement.

How strong is Fibrex? This material is so tough that it allows us to craft windows in a variety of unique shapes (like those featured in our specialty windows). Even with thinner frames and larger glass, our windows also remain stable thanks to Fibrex. As far as window framing materials go, it’s several steps above wood, vinyl, aluminum, and fiberglass.
