Transom Windows can inspire a love/hate relationship with their owners, especially if they are specialty shapes, such as triangle windows.
No doubt rake windows (aka triangle windows) add architectural interest and loads of natural light. This is why homeowners, architects and the like are drawn to them. However, they also allow heat and damaging UV rays into a home, often increasing energy costs in peak summer months.
Many window treatments solutions for rake windows help solve some of these problems by covering up the triangle windows with a fixed treatment. This means, while it may look like your other window treatments, it doesn’t operate and is set in one position. Therefore, in times of the year when the extra light and warmth provided by transom windows would be beneficial, these treatments can’t maximize this value.
Is there a better solution. Yes!
