Distortion in a 64 sq. foot window?
I have eight 8 x 8 foot windows that I would like to start replacing soon. I am in the process of gutting and remodeling the house. The architect mentioned that windows of this size may have some distortion. Currently, the house has thin single pane 1958 glass, which feels like plexiglass. I do not notice distortion with these windows, but suspect it could be more pronounced with double pane. I am using commercial glass.
I am wondering if this distortion, or any other detriments of windows this size, should preclude me from purchasing glass this size, and perhaps it would be better to replace each with two 4 foot wide panels. Thank you for any advice.
