When you love your home, however, and you could obviously never think of moving, what do you do? Well, we here at Rusco know of one great option, the dormer window.
A dormer window is a window addition that pops out from the roof, ultimately creating more headroom and space in a room. Often used in homes with half stories, dormer windows generally come in three different styles. The first and most common dormer window is the doghouse dormer. Named because it looks like a dog house popping out from the roof of your home, this dormer window doesn’t just provide extra light, but also the space necessary to move around or create that extra special nook for you to get away and read. A second common dormer window is the shed dormer. The shed dormer is named so because it looks like a shed popping out from the roof of your home. Larger than the doghouse dormer, this dormer window can feel like a home extension, giving you the extra space necessary to turn your half story into an active and usable room. A third common dormer window is the eyebrow dormer. Due to its curved wooden frame, this dormer window resembles an eye popping out from the roof and can add that extra space need, all the while keeping that smooth aesthetic your home cherishes.
When you’re looking for extra space and neither moving nor an extension is an option, consider the dormer window. The dormer window can add the space you need, provide the light you want, and is affordable! And when it finally comes time to adding a dormer window, it’s important to call a family company that’s been serving the western suburbs of Chicago since 1937. Call Rusco.
