The Perfect Basement Apartment

When we got married, my husband and I moved into a lovely brick home. Because we were young and in debt, we would have benefited from being able to rent out a portion of our home to tenants. Unfortunately, our home didn’t include a basement apartment. If your basement is currently not being used, consider transforming it into a basement apartment. Before renting it out to tenants, you will need to make sure it meets certain specifications. For example, most local governments require basement apartments to contain a certain amount of windows. Usually, you will also have to ensure that your windows meet size requirements. On this blog, you will discover how to create the perfect basement apartment with the right windows.

Executive Style Windows — A Professional Series Of Replacement Windows

Executive windows exude style and sophistication. Metal-reinforced frames, grid patterns, safety locks, and privacy features can be used to customize the series of windows that you will be installing in your office suite or receptionist area.


Professional replacement windows are reinforced to provide stability and balance. Reinforced metal that comprises the framework of a window may be covered with vinyl or a high-grade metal product that has been painted. Stability allows a window to open seamlessly. An executive series of windows will remain balanced once they are installed. Since office staff may prefer to open and close windows, depending upon the weather outdoors, equipping employees with windows that are quiet when being opened and closed will be beneficial.

Framework pieces that comprise glass panels will be designed to be slid from side-side-side, tilted forward, or moved up and down. During the manufacturing process, tempered glass panes are anchored inside the framework pieces. Glass panes that comprise an executive series include single and double panes.

Grid Patterns

Grid patterns are used to separate glass panes into individual blocks. Frame pieces are used to construct a grid. The framework that is used to divide the glass into sections will likely be constructed of a similar material to the outer frame material. A colonial grid pattern will consist of many frame pieces that will divide the glass into many square-shaped sections. A prairie grid pattern will form a grid around the outer edges of a windowpane. The middle of a pane will consist of uninterrupted glass. Many commercial structures feature grids on their windows.

Locks And Privacy

Locks will be located along the upper, bottom, or side of a window frame. The lock style for a commercial window should be easy to access for anyone who will be responsible for securing a series of windows each day or evening. A manufacturer of an executive series of windows may offer custom locks that a client can choose from. Locks may contain knobs or levers, which will need to be engaged when a pane is going to be opened or closed.

Privacy glass may contain an opaque or beveled surface. Each of these surfaces will hinder visibility, but will still allow natural or artificial light to filter through. A tint is another type of privacy product that will greatly reduce visibility through a pane of glass. A manufacturer may offer many different privacy products that can be added to new window panes.
