Let Light and Fresh Air in
Balconies don't just enhance a home's appearance, they improve the quality of life. From small Juliet balconies to large walk out ones, they all require some form of window or glazed door. Typically, French doors are used to offer the most natural light into the home, the best views and easy access at the same time.
What Features Should Balcony Windows offer?
All windows and doors - whether made of aluminum, vinyl or wood- should meet certain functional requirements and still be aesthetically pleasing and balcony windows are no different. Requirements include
- Design and aesthetics should complement the appearance of the house
- Sufficient sound protection
- Energy efficiency that meets local building codes
- Appropriate burglary prevention based on location
Purchasing a high-quality custom made product offers superior performance and durability to domestic made products and pays for itself over the lifetime both in use and lower energy bills.
First Impressions Matter
The type and shape of your balcony determines the design of new windows. Balconies on the sides of buildings allow for almost any type of window. It’s important to consider the character of your home and make sure your choice of windows complements it.
When a window is mounted to the roof, we recommend considering special designs such as roof windows with flashing. Flashing improves thermal insulation and prevents moisture and condensation from accumulating.
Since Neuffer only offers custom made windows, you determine the exact dimensions and colors. We offer frames in a variety of materials including vinyl, wood and aluminum. The material should be selected to match the existing facade - if the balcony door is made of aluminum, an aluminum window would be an aesthetic match. Last but not least, do not forget the window sills, a small feature but one that must also match.
