What type of windows?
In the photo you can see three window openings. When the building was new i assume there were windows that fit the brick openings. I also assume that they were changed later for something the owner at the time had access to. The rough openings were framed in and I believe used/salvaged windows were used. They are now ready to be replaced, rot, inefficient.
I’d like to go back to the original size rough opening which is 80″ and between 1/2 and 1/4 wide and 75″ and 1/2 tall.
These windows are on the rear of the building facing west. I’d like for them to open some for the breeze in spring and fall. I think casement might be best but am open for suggestions from the pros. I’ve been told casements can be damagaed by wind at that size.
Id like to ask for suggestions, opinions on what I’ve said and anything else that could be added. I don’t want to go cheap but I want value over brand. Where would recommend buying/ordering from?
Thanks for any help.
