Custom replacement windows can be a great way to get a unique look for your home or provided a replacement for an out of the ordinary product. There are many different features and factors that go into the general production of a replacement window. That causes the industry to see a custom window in a much different light than a consumer necessarily would. From the outside, one would think that any personalization of a window would make it custom. This is not the case.

There is a lot of information that needs to be considered and reviewed to make a sound choice on your replacement windows.

This question draws back to the original point of a difference in interpretations. You replacement windows are available in different materials, with different coatings, different panes of glass, and different styles. That does not make them custom. One will find that it is an intrinsic part of the replacement window industry. Manufacturers are equipped to produce their catalog of products fairly easily to a variety of different specifications. When we look at an actual custom window, it normally pertains to an abnormal size for the style or a unique frame. Maybe for a bit of style, a homeowner decides they would like some octagon-shaped windows for the front of their house. Manufacturers do not typically produce those, thus it falls under the category of a custom replacement window. Those types of replacement windows are typically more expensive than a personalized window due to construction costs. Certainly a fairly minor detail that makes quite a big difference. An individual can not reasonably expect to learn every minor detail of the industry just through research. That is what makes professional consultation with experienced specialists a great idea before embarking on a purchase.
This question largely depends on what aspect of the window is custom. There is no universal, numerical standard as to what makes a window custom or not. What is custom for one company may not be custom for a second company. Shopping around becomes an important part of the process because of this. You may find that a major manufacturer can not produce a custom-sized window for your home cheaper than a smaller shop that specializes on only custom windows. Prices will not be the only factor to consider when deciding on custom replacement windows though. The manufacturer is just as integral since their product will be in your home for the coming decades. There are so many minor nuances and differences in the window industry than what a consumer may be expecting.
