Where You Live

Where your home is built, how it’s positioned on the lot, and the directions your windows and doors face are all matters to consider when building or remodeling. To help you choose the right windows and doors for where you live, consider the following tips.

Window Placement

The placement of windows and glass doors on certain walls can determine the kind of natural light that enters your home, and even the temperature inside your home.

For instance:

  • South-facing windows are well suited for comforting solar heat in the winter.
  • North-facing windows do not typically bring in direct sunlight or solar heat but rather cooler, muted light.
  • East- and west-facing windows tend to receive more sunshine in the summer than in the winter, potentially bringing uncomfortable solar heat gain.
  • In general, all south- and west-facing windows are more susceptible to solar heat gain, depending on shading conditions such as trees, adjacent buildings, overhanging rooflines or awnings.

As noted above, all windows are subjected to solar heat gain and loss depending on direction, reflective surfaces or shading options. Always consider energy efficient factors when determining the placement and style of windows in your home. Energy efficient windows and doors will help your home stay comfortable year-round.

Door Placement

The glass patio doors are a prime entry

Point for break ins when you have one partially open for the dog door panel. You should cut a wood dowel to drop into the sliding track to stop anyone from pushing the patio door open on you. Good safety issue.
I'm not sure what CBS is either. Are you talking about a metal door installed on front, or a hollow construction door (some older homes don't have solid wood ones).
