This is how to open the view to the back yard!  Change an old triple casement with view challenging grilles to an open view picture window and functional venting casements that feature a simplified Simulated Divided Light (SDL) grille for accent and character.

Can you see a change?  Yes, the old look was a rotting twin window.  The Schmidt masonry team cut, removed, cleaned, keyed in, and reused the same brick and stone sill.  Install a sliding Pella sliding patio door with a simplified SDL grille.  End result:  AWESOME!

Total transformation:  Change a 1960 ranch with egress and view issues to an open, modern, functional, enjoyable view to the back yard.  Team Schmidt, you are awesome!
