Typical traditional stock window styles include bay, bow, single hung, double hung, sliding, picture and casement. However, not all residential windows fit into these narrow categories. If your home’s windows are an unusual shape, they would be considered Specialty Windows. Here’s what to know about before beginning your home’s replacement window project.

What Are Specialty Windows?

Unlike the traditional square or rectangular window, a specialty window is a window that comes in a non-traditional shape. Specialty windows can stand alone or be combined with other traditional vented (able to be opened) or inoperable (like a picture window). Renewal by Andersen of Long Island can make specialty windows in nearly limitless sizes and shapes to meet your window replacement needs. Some examples:

  • Round
  • Arched
  • Octagonal
  • Hexagonal

Like standard windows, Renewal by Andersen’s specialty windows have different glass types to choose from, including high performance low-E4 glass and high performance low-E4 SmartSun glass. Specialty windows can be very large, covering a wide span in your home, or small, like in a stairway or even combined with other windows for a unique focal point. Fortunately, Renewal by Andersen’s Fibrex window frame material is strong enough to hold the heavy glass that must fit in a large specialty window, without concern about warping over time.

What to Know About Specialty Window Grille Patterns

Just as your specialty window can be a unique size and shape, so can its grille pattern, if you would like one. When you’re choosing a specialty window with a grille pattern from Renewal by Andersen, your customer service specialist will help you determine which grille pattern is right for your specific specialty window and your home.
