What are Picture Windows?

Picture windows are inoperable units that act as a frame to your outside views. These windows can accommodate large glass units that let the natural light pour in, and allow you to focus on the views that matter most to you! Picture windows are one of the most practical windows you could choose as they provide the highest energy efficiency to homeowners. Commonly used as a standalone window or paired with different styles—or additional picture windows in a mulled configuration— these windows allow for homeowners to achieve a distinctive look and add atmosphere to any room. 

What are Transom Windows?

A transom is a structural term that refers to a horizontal beam above a window or door that separates it from a window above it. Transom windows are picture units that are placed in the space above the transom. These are often used to provide privacy while allowing natural light to flood into the room.
