Overview of Fenestrations

Fenestrations are the windows and doors of a building.

In the world of architecture, fenestration refers to the design and placement of windows and doors in a building. Fenestration is an important part of any design because it can affect how much natural light enters a space, how much privacy is available in that space, and how energy efficient that space might be. The materials used for fenestrations can range from wood to metal to glass or even acrylic. Costs for materials also vary, but typically glass windows are more expensive than wooden ones. There are many types of fenestrations: casement, double-hung, bay or bow window, transom window, jalousie window (also called louvered).

Fenestrations are one of the most important parts of a building. They are responsible for providing natural lighting and ventilation. as we mentioned earlier.This is why it is important to choose the right materials for these openings. The material you use will determine how energy-efficient your fenestration will be as well as how much noise it will let in or out of the building when it is open.

There are many materials to build fenestrations. One of the most popular ones is aluminum.

Aluminum: aluminum is lightweight, durable, and easy to maintain. The only downside is that it can be expensive. 

Vinyl Vinyl windows are affordable and easy to install but they don’t last as long as aluminum or wood windows do

Wood windows: Wood windows are more expensive than vinyl but they last longer and they provide better insulation against the elements.


The cost of installing fenestrations depends on the type of fenestration you have chosen. The most common types include double-glazed windows, triple-glazed windows, and casement windows.

Double-glazed windows are more expensive than triple-glazed windows because they provide better insulation from noise as well as heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer months. Casement windows are cheaper than any other type because they require less work to install them on the outside of the building.

The price of fenestration depends on many factors: the size, type, location and style of the project. For example, in terms of price, it can range from $100 to $10 million for a single project.
