do you want windows that fit your home, or a home that fits your windows?

The answer is, it depends.

If you are building a new home, and you design each opening to feature stock sizes then stock sizes could be a good fit.  However it doesn’t allow you much design flexibility and can make a space feel dull.  A custom size window or windows can bring a lot of personality and style to your home.

If you are looking to replace windows you currently have, you might been drawn to what appears to be more affordable pricing of a stock size. The chance however of a stock size fitting your opening is slim. If you find a stock size that is smaller than your current opening it will require patching, filling and trimming, all items that will be billable by your contractor. If you find a stock size that is larger than your current opening, there could be costly adjustments needed if it’s a load bearing wall.  Any upfront savings in a stock size can potentially be lost due to contractor time and labor.
