    Default Good Window for in a Bath Shower?

    I am looking to remodel my bath room and I need to replace the tub and so I am thinking that the windows that is in the shower should be replaced at the same time. So I am wondering what would be the better one to use and I will need to match it in the future when I get to replacing the other windows in the house.

    Any suggestions as to material of the window. Even brand name would be some info I could use to search out info on them.

    Do they make a window that has some type of exterior that will repel the water from inside the shower.

    In the planning stages just to get everything so I can do it in a timely manner.

    Thanks,

    Any solid vinyl window will be fine. Normally in showers we use one that doesn't open so there is no mechanism to rust.

    How about a Fiberglass framed window would that be a good choice as well as vinyl. Not seen many that don't open that is a good idea since I have yet to open the window there now.

    Fiberglass is also an excellent choice. Normally the non-opening winders are special ordered, which is no big deal.

    I always liked the look of a 4'w x 1'h awning window above a tub surround, like 80" off the floor. With privacy glass; it lights the whole bathroom as the obscure glass diffuses the light, it's out of the way of the splash area; opening it dries the room pretty fast, supressing the formation of mold.

    No Shower Surround the window is 24 x 36 or so I will have to measure it again but it is similar to the other house windows and I can't afford to close off the window just not in the budget to reside the whole house. Will be squeezing my fund just to update the bath room with a tub, new vanity, sink, tile for the walls and floor and of course the window.

    And it is a DIY Project and it is going to be a chore to get the cast iron tub out...
