Irregularly shaped windows are an indication that the architects are becoming more liberal-minded with their designs. Irregularly shaped windows have existed for a long time. In the early days, they were usually created as a result of mistakes or errors that the homeowners didn’t bother to correct. Over the years, windows have transitioned from the regular shapes to include shapes such as trapeziums, circles, and other irregular designs that perfectly match the architectural design of the building.
Irregular shape windows can be a bother to some contractors, especially when the homeowners seem to be quite extreme in their demands, however, the installation of irregular shaped windows should never be a problem for well-trained and experienced window repair and installation contractors in Chicago. Depending on the materials from which the window has been made from, during installation, the focus will be on the strength of aluminum or wood for the frame and ensuring that the window glass is properly fixed and insulated. The proper application of sealants will prevent leaks.
