Columbus Climate Recommendations
Central Ohio, including the Columbus area, is often referred to as the Ohio River Valley. This valley sees a variety of weather and seasonal variability over the course of the year, including severe storms in the summer and blizzards in the winter. Columbus lies between the flat plains of the west and north and the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in the southern and eastern portions of the state.
The summer sun can feel great, and a bay window will capture large amounts of natural light, but if you’d like to add a window seat to your bay window, consider between-the-glass blinds or shades. Bay windows can be difficult to cover with traditional blinds or curtains and having your blinds between the panes allows you to filter the light in a stylish and low-maintenance way.
Keep warm in the winter by helping to reduce the heat loss from your home. Window panes of glass with Advanced Low-E will help keep your home insulated, blocking out the cold and keeping the heat in.
Frequent storms during the winter bring bitter cold and frozen precipitation. Wood with exterior aluminum cladding, vinyl, and fiberglass are low maintenance and can stand up to extreme weather.
Prepare wood windows for bitterly cold winters and semi-humid summers. EnduraClad® and EnduraClad® Plus exterior finishes help resist fading and look great for years.
