What’s New in Windows: Oversized!

One of our premier replacement window manufacturers recently introduced an exciting product:  oversized windows, with glass area up to 70 sq.ft. (Previously the largest available was 60 sq.ft.)

If you’ve got a fantastic view you’d like to take advantage of, or if you’d simply like to bring more light into your home here in Minnesota, these super-sized windows from Weather Shield just might be what you’re looking for.

In the past, often the solution to add more light than a picture window might afford was to replace a window space with a sliding patio door. But for some situations, that’s not the right solution. After all, a door is much less secure than a fixed window, like the ones in the bedroom shown in this photograph.  

There is an increasing demand for larger windows, and Weather Shield engineered these to have greater structural stability.  Made of aluminum-clad wood, these windows are virtually maintenance free on these exterior and provide the beauty of real wood on the inside.  And because of the different options available, these windows can be truly customized to your particular taste.  They are currently available in two separate energy-efficient window Weather Shield lines:

  • The Contemporary Collection – drawing on architectural inspiration, these aluminum clad windows are designed with modern flair – narrower frames and European-type hardware
  • The Premium Series – also aluminum clad wood, with more traditional design and craftsmanship.

Colors for the exterior frames include 12 standard colors, 45 designer colors, and a number of radiant metallic and anodized finishes.  For the interior, you may choose from 7 different woods.

Weather Shield manufactures its high performance, energy-efficient windows nearby in Medford, Wisconsin, another reason we love these windows. We like dealing with local Midwest companies whenever possible.

To find out more about Weather Shield’s new oversized windows and the possibility of having them installed in your home here in the Minneapolis area, please give us a call today for a free in-home consultation.  We are a licensed Minnesota home window replacement contractor.
