Adding a window to your bathroom is easy – it’s choosing which window perfectly fits the space that’s tricky. With the right considerations, however, you can make the process much easier.
1. Choose a good window material. There are many options available today, but three of the most popular are wood, extruded aluminum and fiberglass. Their popularity is not unearned. Wood is known for its natural beauty and superior insulation, and aluminum is highly durable and long-lasting. Fiberglass is incredibly strong, versatile and low-maintenance. Krech Exteriors offers replacement windows made of these excellent materials through our partnership with the leading brand, Marvin® Windows.
2. Take ventilation into account. Your bathroom generates a significant amount of moisture so you’ll want a window that can effectively prevent humidity levels from rising. Our Marvin casement and double hung windows allow for increased access to natural ventilation. They’ll expel warm, moist air from your bathroom and let in cooling breezes to keep the space fresh and comfortable.
3. Make sure your window is sized right. Local building codes and regulations influence window size: it will have to be a specific length and height for safety reasons. That’s why, when having a new window installed in your bathroom, make sure its size adheres to these requirements. Non-compliance has many penalties, and they can cause hitches for your project.
4. Don’t overlook privacy. Keep prying eyes away from your bath space with the right window style. Our Marvin awning windows, for instance, can offer a significant amount of privacy because they can be installed near your ceiling. We also have corner windows, which are streamlined to provide panoramic outdoor views while still keeping the more critical areas of your bath space private. If you want picture windows, you might need some shades or other window treatments to ensure better privacy.
