Wall windows

The window walls can mean two different types of work: the walling of a window opening and the bricking of an existing window. We provide tips and further information for both situations below if you want to wall a window accordingly.

Wall opening or walling

If you want to wall a window, nobody can stop you. So much more elaborate can be the walls of a new window. Depending on the circumstances you need:

  • a building permit
  • a structural engineer or building architect for the blueprint

Even if no building permit is required, an architect or structural engineer is urgently required. Lintels can not be used indefinitely. The lintel must direct the power of the facade around the window. Physically the narrow limits are set.

According to building regulations, which can be interpreted slightly differently in each state building code and in each development plan, the window size should be related to the room size. If a window you imagine is too wide for static reasons, you can also pair windows.
