Of all the parts of a house, windows frequently affect our daily lives the most. Outside, they give architectural style to the home. Windows play a big part in the first impressions people have about homes. For example, in Jacksonville, when you see old aluminum windows that were installed fifty years ago, you may tend to think that the house is old and run-down.
Inside, windows frame up the view to the world outside. They also provide natural light which can completely transform the appearance of a room. A room’s colors and textures can be dramatically affected by the light coming in from the outside. Even the appearance of furnishings is affected by light coming through the windows.
