A Guide to Choosing the Right Window Size
To determine the style and size of windows you need for your area, you must first determine with the window contractor if you need custom windows or ordinary windows. The typical window size depends on the home’s age and the windows utilized. Renovations to older homes may have resulted in larger, more modern window openings.
While the conventional window proportions for each area will vary, they should be consistent with the sizes commonly utilized by contractors and builders. When designing a home, typical window proportions should be taken into account when determining which windows will allow the most natural light into the space.
