Stair Building Ideas For Design And Construction

Windows - Stair Well Building And Framing

Windows are usually made from glass, wood, plastic, aluminum and metal. They're used to provide buildings with light and ventilation and can also be used as a fire escape, on certain buildings.

Windows come in a variety of shapes, sizes and designs. People have been using windows for centuries, even though some of them have never had one piece of glass ever installed, in them.


Stairwell Windows And Safety Glass

If you're planning on installing windows around your stairway, you should do yourself a favor and find out a little more about what your local building codes requirements are going to be.

If the windows fall within certain measurements, in your stairway, you will be required to use tempered glass. This could be a big problem, if you haven't installed a tempered glass window, around your stairwell and the building inspector catches it.

Even if the building inspector didn't find a window that used regular glass and was installed in an area that require tempered glass, it wouldn't be a bad idea to make the necessary repairs as soon as possible.
