Architectural Window Buyers Guide
What are Architectural Windows?
Architectural windows are designed to enhance the architectural features of your home while letting in more light. Architectural windows are inoperable and come in a variety of non-traditional shapes, so you might also hear them referred to as “fixed windows” or “shape windows.” Half-round windows, octagons, arch-tops, and triangles are just a few of the options. Architectural windows are perfect for spaces where operable windows aren’t necessary, such as above the door in a two-story entryway, over your double-hung or casement windows, or either side of a fireplace wall.

Why Should I Replace Fixed Windows?
Architectural or “fixed” windows are so named because they don’t open and close – they’re fixed in place. So if these windows don’t have any moving parts, should you bother replacing them? Definitely! All homes and all windows are subject to expansion and contraction during the seasons. This can cause gaps and cracks to form between your fixed windows and the framing of your house, allowing air infiltration, which creates drafts that cost you money in higher energy bills! All of Improveit’s Performax54 windows are designed and installed to ward off energy loss, including air infiltration, so your fixed windows should definitely be included in any window replacement project.
