Window mulling is a popular option for homeowners who want their home’s front to have a sleeker, cleaner appearance. It also allows them to customize their homes to their preferences. Window mulling is the process of joining two windows to create a large window that frames a stunning view or serves as an architectural showcase in a guest reception room. It can be done by window makers in their manufacturing process or on-site during the remodeling or replacement process. What is window mulling and how can it benefit you? Are there any things to consider? Roof replacement expert Expert Contracting is here to help!
Possible Limitations and Risks
To start off, mulling is an amazing process to undertake, especially among homes that are near gorgeous views and areas. Though mulling can improve your view while maintaining the structural integrity of your home and enhancing the performance of your windows, the rating of mulled windows may be lower than the rating for each individual unit. This is one of the reasons why you should consult with a knowledgeable professional who can also determine whether the combined windows’ rating meets the local building code requirements for your project. Doing this allows you to save more money, effort and time in the long run.
Mulled windows can be ordered as replacement windows or you can have professionals join various existing components into a single mulled window. Keep in mind, however, that not all windows can be mulled because mulling has structural limits. Because your home’s walls may not be able to hold a mulled window if the combined replacement units are too big or heavy, your window and roof repair contractor will need to consider the window glass and size of the windows.
Benefits of Window Mulling
Window mulling brings in many benefits, energy efficiency-wise and aesthetically. More sunshine can be let in through the combined glass area of two windows, making a cramped space feel more expansive and improving the mood in a room. That same sunlight also means less need for electronic lights, as the wider opening of the mulled window provides excellent natural lighting during the day. If you have concerns about this when summer or winter comes, consider the place where you’ll put the mulled window in and orient it accordingly. Furthermore, a larger glass surface provides a better view of the scenery outside, providing excellent benefits to mental health as well as to indoor aesthetics. Finally, a mulled window can help bring more attention to your exterior or emphasize certain characteristics in your interior by acting as a larger visual focal point.
