Picture Windows Buyers Guide
What is a picture window?
Also known as “fixed” or “direct set” windows, picture windows are inoperable (don’t open and close), and feature a large, unobstructed glass area. From inside the home, your picture window will be like putting a frame around your favorite photograph: your beautiful view! Because picture windows have no moving parts, they are often one of the most energy-efficient window styles. While letting in plenty of light through their large glass area, there is less concern about drafts or air infiltration around picture windows.

Looking for a Picture Window that Opens?
Picture windows are designed to be fixed and inoperable – they literally act as picture frames for your outdoor views. To get a similar effect of a picture window with the added bonus of ventilation, you have several options! For wider window openings, slider windows are an ideal option. With two sashes, they have the appearance of two smaller picture windows side-by-side.
