Picture windows are famous for their spectacular views and detailed craftsmanship. Installation is simple and the windows are highly energy efficient. Silver Line picture windows come with standard features like Low-e II coated double-pane glass and Intercept Warm Edge Spacers. The spacers reflect radiant heat and bond the frame to the glass. This forms a tight fit, making the window a big energy saver. The exterior frame has a narrow design and a fusion-welded frame sash. With all of these added technologies, the Silver Line picture window is a very attractive and practical choice.
Silver Line picture windows can be purchased as a replacement or new construction window. All types meet or exceed the performance standards set by the federal government and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Because of that, you can cash in on the tax credits available for home energy upgrades. For window replacement, you can earn either $1,500 in tax credits or 30% of the total replacement cost.
It’s not uncommon for home builders to take advantage of the beauty of a fixed picture window. Ski cabins and mountain retreats often use rectangular and triangular-shaped picture windows to form a brilliant window-scape. This type of design is perfect to show off the great outdoors. Architects will often use the natural beauty of cedar for the window’s frame and molding. The gorgeous rays of morning sunlight shower the interior with a warm glow. That’s just one example of how a picture window can enhance your home or vacation retreat. These types of green windows are also going to save the customer some serious dough during tax time.
