Just thought I would get some thoughts fron you guys about the issue I have with my front projection fixed retreat windows. These windows directly face the street and are virtually next to each other.
The issue is the corner window has a flat cross bar whilst the larger window to the left has a join in the cross bar. The builder says its because the larger window is made in three bits whilst the corner one is in one.
I have looked at other houses near mine with the same facade and these windows match IE: Not diffrent like mine.
Do you guys think this looks ordinary as they look diffrent when standing in front of them. As it is at the front of the proerty I am concerned. It is in the hands of the building manager as the site supervisor says he is not authorised to change it.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated

It would bother me, but I can be terribly anal.
I think truly it isn't so bad, nobody would ever ever notice it, nobody but you that is!
It sounds to me like there's not much that can be done anyway?
It does seem misleading though and something you should have been told.

I didn't even notice it until I looked at the second picture and that is only because you pointed it out......It probably wouldn't bother me.
It is your house though and you will have to live with it for however many years so you need to be sure you will be happy with the end result.

I also didn't notice until you pointed it out, however, that does not mean it is excusable. You are entitled to get the windows you have paid for...its your house. If you are not happy then I would take it further.

I also couldn't see the problem. I had to read your message again to clarify for myself where I should be looking. So if your concern is that it is terribly obvious that its different and it will be the first thing visitors notice - I don't think you have a problem. But if it's something that will annoy you anyway, get it fixed.

I think you can get away with it as one is a corner feautre window, and the eye is drawn to that.
I too had to look again to see what the problem was, but if its annoying you now get it fixed, or you will hate it forever.

Steve, easy question....what is on the display home?
IF it is a 3 part window and it's meant to be that way, then the display home should be the same.
If not, bring it up with the building manager again.

Personally it wouldn't worry me but it wouldn't hurt to speak with the window manuf. directly & ask the question.
[If you have another pic. showing the frame work above the window on that corner I'd be interested from a design point of view]
