The colonial grid window is a stylish classic in American architecture. This window style was named because of it’s popularity during America’s Colonial era. This window style is featured on the Monticello (Thomas Jefferson’s home which is featured on the back of the nickel) and continues to be one of the most common window types in new homes construction. Colonial grid windows offer classic appeal at an affordable cost.

Origins of Colonial Window Grids
During the Colonial days, glass window panes had to be limited to smaller panes of glass so they could be packaged and transported by a horse in a satchel. These small glass panes were held in place with wood moldings known as “muntins” creating the Colonial window grid we know and love today.
