What Are the Best Custom Windows for Bathroom Remodels?
Planning to remodel your bathroom? It’s great that you’re including new windows in your upcoming makeover. The style of your new windows will play a huge role in the aesthetic appeal of your remodel, but you also won’t want to overlook the importance of functionality. This is especially true for bathroom windows, which serve as an escape valve for hot air and steam. This means you’ll want them to be easy to open and close. Moreover, because your bathroom windows are exposed to humidity day in and day out, you’ll want to choose replacement windows that are easy to clean and resistant to damage from moisture.
Let’s start by saying that custom bathroom windows of any style and frame material are your best option. Windows that are perfectly sized to fit their designated openings will require less adjustment by the installer to prevent air and moisture infiltration. This is of heightened importance in the bathroom, where moisture can penetrate a vulnerable window seal from indoors as well as from the outside. A leaky window seal can lead to hidden structural damage around your window frame and eventually the need for costly repairs.
What Window Style Is Best?
The vintage of your home and the ambiance you’re after for your bathroom should definitely influence your selection of a window style. For example, a minimalistic sliding window might provide the ease of operation you’d prefer, but it could look out of place in a bathroom that was designed for a colonial- or Victorian-style home. In this instance, a casement window, which swings open like a door and is generally considered easier to open than a single- or double-hung window, could be a good choice for that hard-to-reach wall space above the tub.
What About the Frame Material?
No matter which window style is right for your bathroom, you’ll want to opt for low-maintenance vinyl frames and energy-efficient glass. Make sure you’re investing in custom windows crafted with high-quality vinyl that provide optimal thermal performance and resists warping and other damage from heat exposure.
