The ABC's Of Windows

What house would be complete without windows? They provide natural sunlight, fresh air, and views of the outdoors. It’s important for homeowners to know the different types of windows, materials, and building codes. And that starts here.

The ABC's Of Windows:

Wainscoting - This describes the decorative paneling that lines the lower half of the interior wall.

Wall Insulation - Insulation is placed between the wall studs to slow down air moving between the inside and outside of a home.

Wall Sheathing - Sheets of plywood nailed to the outside face of the wall studs that serve as a base for exterior siding.

Water Repellent System - An exterior coating system that temporarily protects against water.

Waterproofing - Waterproofing prevents moisture, unlike a water repellent system.

Weather Stripping - This is when certain materials — like rubber, metal, wood, or plastic — are installed around the door and window openings to prevent air filtration.

Window Casting - The decorative strips surrounding and finishing the exterior and interior sides of the window or door opening.

Weep Holes - To allow water to drain, small holes are placed at the bottom of walls, windows, or along the edge of flat roofs or decks.
