Common window typesYou’ll also need a bit of knowledge on different window types. Here’s a quick breakdown of common terms:
Bay: Bay windows have three windows set into an angled frame. Bay windows project outward from your home adding space and a feeling of volume.
Bow: Bow windows have four or more custom curved windows that create a circular outcropping in the home. You’ll most often see bow windows in older homes, like a Victorian style home for example, but they really can be adapted for any room.
Casement: Casement windows have hinges on the side and open out to either side. They provide top-to-bottom ventilation in a similar way as an open door does.
Double Hung: Double hung windows are the most popular style among homeowners these days. The top or bottom sash can both be raised or lowered and both windows typically tilt in for easy cleaning and maintenance of exterior glass.
Single Hung: With single hung windows, only the bottom sash can be raised, while the upper remains stationery. Many budget-conscious consumers tend to enjoy the great value of single hung windows as they come in at a lower price point than double hung.
Sliding: Sliding windows open horizontally and provide a more contemporary look. These types of windows open with a sash sliding left to right, or right to left.
Picture: Picture windows are fixed and do not open. They are typically used in combination with other window styles. If you want an unobstructed view, this is the window choice.
Why you should replace your windowsThere’s a long list of reasons you may be here shopping for new construction or replacements. Here are some of the most common:
You want an aesthetic upgrade: If they’ve never been replaced, your home’s current windows could be woefully out-of-style. New ones can significantly accentuate or define the character of your home. If you don’t think you’ll notice, ask yourself: how many times a day do you see or use your windows?
You want more light in your home: A set of new windows can change the energy and light within any room. Bring added sunlight to a particularly dark space, or upgrade to a massive bay window in your living room.
You want a more energy-efficient space: One of the best reasons to upgrade your windows is the positive effect on your heating and cooling bills. Many old windows are single pane or have broken seals and there is a tangible difference in energy efficiency by upgrading to new double pane or triple pane windows. Energy efficient double pane windows reduce energy loss by 30% to 50% over single pane windows.
You want a more secure home: A window that does not lock or close properly is a threat to your safety, from burglars, predators, and weather. Your home windows should keep you and your belongings secure.
You want a working window: Opening and closing your windows should not be a difficult task. Whether it is a casement window or a double hung, the parts and pieces should operate correctly. If you find yourself struggling to simply open your window and having it stay open, you are due for an upgrade.
You want a quiet home: Reducing street noise is a common reason customers visit our site. There are wide ranges of noise issues that could be happening. With cars zooming by, neighbors yelling, and planes overhead your home needs to be quiet and peaceful, especially at night. A set of new windows will keep the outside noise where it belongs… outside.
You want a clean home: Older windows can be difficult to clean without a ladder and very long arms. Modern double hung windows have hinges that swing inwards that make a quick wipe down a breeze.
You want your home to sell fast: Listing your house for sale soon? According to the National Association of Realtors, window replacement projects can return homeowners more than 78% of the project costs upon resale.
