Window Glass Types

Windows are a vital part of any home. Not only do they exhibit a commanding presence in most rooms, but they are an important part of all-round safety and climate control. When choosing window types, including the window treatments applied to them, one should have a good idea about what purposes the windows should serve.

The Purposes of Different Window Types

There are many components involved in choosing the right window type for your needs. The first thing you need to consider is the type of glass that would suit your window needs.
