Picture Windows Inside Shower??
In a corner bathroom, I’m planning for a wet room in the corner, with both a shower and a freestanding tub inside. Inside the wet room I’d like to install two picture windows meeting at the corner.
I’d like to avoid wood windows for such a wet and humid place. Would Andersen 100 series Fibrex windows work well for this? Or should I just use basic vinyl windows?
I’m in Vermont, so condensation due to cold glass is a concern. Elsewhere in the house the windows will have Andersen’s HeatLock coating, but perhaps these windows shouldn’t have HeatLock, since it would result in a colder inner pane and more condensation inside, right?
I’d hate to go to the trouble to install these just to have them completely fog up anytime someone uses the shower, so how do I avoid that? (Triple pane would be nice, but not sure if they are available in Fibrex or vinyl, plus the cost might be prohibitive.)
Thanks for any advice!
