Having your home’s windows replaced is a fantastic investment that can make your home significantly more attractive, energy efficient, and secure. However, there are certain important choices you need to make before you undertake this project, such as deciding what windows you want to replace and what company you want to have perform the work. Another significant decision you’ll need to make is determining what styles of replacement windows you want to have installed. Window styles vary widely in their appearance and functionality, but once you learn about your different options, it should be fairly easy for you to decide which styles make the most sense for your home.
This popular style features two sashes that will slide up or down, giving you multiple ways to let fresh air into your home. Since the sashes feature tilt-in latches that you can use to angle the sashes inward, you can also conveniently clean both sides of the glass from within your home.
Built with a hinge running down one side, casement windows open outward, away from the home. They seal tight for optimal energy efficiency, and since they only have one sash, they provide a wonderful, unobstructed view.
As their name implies, picture windows exist solely to provide a view or “picture” of outdoor scenery. Since they don’t open and lack moving parts, they boast greater energy efficiency, security, and durability than all other replacement window styles.
Similar to a single-hung window turned on its side, sliding windows have one moveable sash that you can push left or right. If you’re searching for a window style that’s easy to operate, then you should consider choosing sliding windows.
