While building a new home or other building is exciting, it can also be stressful, as there are so many decisions to make. For example, you will need to choose the right windows and doors to make your exterior look great while also keeping the interior comfortable. Our team at The Keystone Contractor has extensive experience in installing new construction windows and doors, and in this article, we will go over a few key things you should consider in order to select the best options for your project.
• Function. When choosing new construction windows and doors, the first thing you should consider is the function of the room where the window or door will go. For example, wide, open windows will look great in a living room, but are a poor choice for the bathroom. Similarly, a sliding door is a great choice for a deck but is probably not ideal for your front entrance.
• Lighting and Privacy. Another thing to consider when selecting windows and doors for your new building is how much light they will provide. While you most likely want plenty of natural light in your kitchen, too much sunshine in, say, your home office can make it difficult to read your computer screen. In addition, you may want to choose windows and glass doors with a textured surface for any rooms where privacy is a concern, such as the bedroom or bathroom.
• Insulation. Lastly, we recommend that you choose new construction windows and doors that are designed to minimize passive heat transfer and to keep your building well insulated. Our experts can recommend many options that will keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
