Obscure glass is embedded with a pattern or texture for ornamental or privacy purposes. Wire glass is fortified with an internal wire mesh for added resilience under extreme conditions. Either can be incorporated into your customized window design.
Think outside the box — squares and rectangles — and accent your room with uncommon polygonal or rounded specialty windows.
Whether you have a particular pattern in mind or opt for a contemporary splash of color from back-painted glass, specialty windows go beyond the crystal clear.
What classifies as a specialty window?
Any window with a unique shape (i.e. not square or rectangular), operating style, or fitted with obscure or decorative glass classifies as a specialty window. They're often sold in triangular, rounded, and other polygonal shapes and allow homeowners to make a bold design statement.
To what degree can specialty windows be customized?
Specialty windows can be customized to a tremendous degree. You can play with shapes and angles, glass colors and patterns, framing materials and finishes, muntins (pane separating bars) and mullions (window separating bars), and sizing. It comes down to what your home allows for, your budget, and your imagination.
What are some popular ways to use specialty windows?
Popular ways to use specialty windows include highlighting or accenting architecture (e.g. a triangular window following the slope of a roof), creating a visual theme, and enhancing privacy (e.g. a round or octagonal crank-operated window with frosted glass in a bathroom). Some customers even use specialty windows to double as a kitchen backsplash.
How does specialty window installation differ from conventional window installation?
The principal difference between specialty window installation and conventional window installation is the preparation of the rough opening in which the window frame is inserted. Most commonly, this involves filling the (rectangular) rough opening with a piece of plywood OSB into which the shape of the specialty window is traced and cut.
Can specialty windows be integrated with home automation systems?
Yes, several specialty window brands integrate with home automation systems, allowing for remote control of security features, operation, and accompanying window treatments like drapes, blinds, and shutters. Visit one of our showrooms or contact us for a consultation.
Tom is definitely a master craftsman and did an excellent job. Just want you and the company to know that both Tom and Larry did an outstanding job and we are very pleased with the results.
The whole process from initial meeting to installation was painless and quite surprisingly, a lot less expensive than we thought it would be... Thanks again for taking such good care of us. If anyone I know is looking for new windows, I will certainly recommend your company.
I couldn't be more pleased with both my windows and the installation and now "on a clear day I can see forever". If you would like to use me as a reference I would be more than happy to cooperate.
I am so pleased with my windows, your installers and staff. I would indeed recommend your company to anyone and everyone. They were quick, efficient and very polite.
Everything was excellent. The salesman offered good advice and provided examples of how the end result would look. Hodges' workers arrived on time and worked quickly. The lead installer was quite knowledgeable as well, so the job was done neatly and without incident.
I want you to know that your two colleagues who installed the windows did an outstanding job...Jean and I could not be more pleased.
Your guys did a great job. The temperature in the house is up by 3 degrees and the heat pump is running half as much.
The installer, who I think was Tom Langworthy, did excellent work. He was respectful of our space and cleaned up after himself. He always conducted himself in a professional manner. He seems highly competent and he engenders confidence in his workmanship.
Thank you so much for fixing my window today! Thank you for coming even though these windows aren't yours......No wonder the management office here thinks you guys can do anything and are the most helpful window company around.
We are so very, very happy (once again!) with the Hodges Company....this is the third time we have had a project completed, and each time we've been so pleased.
I wouldn't deal with anyone else. Working with Hodges, I know I can get anything I want, and my imagination can run wild.
All in all a really fantastic company - they've been in business a long time and it shows based on how they treat the costumer. Am planning to do windows next year, and they will be my first phone call.
I think they did a very good job. I will go back to them in a heartbeat.
Hodges had very knowledge salespeople, highly skilled installation crews, and the product lives up to expectations. You can't ask for better than that.
We will definitely be using Hodges again when we look to replace some windows in our house
Before, we could never keep up with the cold. Now we just turn the heat on, and it stays in the building. Complaints are way down, and we're very happy.
We love our new door. The installation work was timely, quick and well-done.
We enjoyed meeting with Brian Whitehouse and were impressed with his ability to explain our options, always respecting our wishes and never annoying us with hard-sell tactics...It was such a pleasure to deal with people who know their job and do it well.
The deck door is fabulous and the installation is super!!! I love how wide it is, and how easily it opens and it actually locks! thank you for the expert product and installation.
I must tell you that Mark Russow and everyone at The Hodges Window Company are nothing less than a great representative/distributor for your company and we will not hesitate to recommend both companies to our friends and family.
I just wanted to express my appreciation to the team your company sent to install a few doors and repair windows in our house. They were professional, caring, cooperative and extremely courteous. They are a major asset to your company. On the whole, our experience with the Hodges Company has been very positive and we happily recommend your services to others.
Your craftsmanship made all the difference, and it was nice getting to know you. We hope to hire you again.
Throughout the entire process - from our first meeting to the on-going daily supervision - by you of the job, the professionalism, the quality of the products, and the workmanship
