Replacing your existing windows with new ones doesn’t need to be a struggle. The size of the opening influences the types of windows you can choose, when you need new windows, you can rely on Capital Remodeling to help you out. However, we can only work with the current opening; we cannot create new ones for you. With that in mind, here is a guide to choosing the right windows for your home.
Different Types of Windows
Let’s start by looking at the different types of windows that you could choose. If you currently have a picture window, then you might be interested in swapping it with a bay window or a bow window. Because of the way they bump-out, they can create a window seat and a reading nook for you. Double-hung windows are another option for you. These windows come together when two of them are paired up. Double-hung windows are much easier to clean, as odd as it sounds.
If you have an opening that is much wider than it is tall, then that sounds like the perfect spot for a slider window. You can have them over a kitchen sink or in the bathroom – just as long as these areas don’t face driving rains. Casement windows operate on cranks and hinges. If you have taller, narrower spaces, then these are the perfect fit. Awning windows are another choice that can be a good fit for your home as well.
Now let’s talk about energy efficiency. Newer windows feature better U-values, which is one of the best reasons to get a replacement window. Two other ratings to keep an eye out for include air leakage and design pressure.
The Bottom Line
Think about the area where you live. Then think about considerations such as weather conditions and colors. Summer is a time of severe storms, and you don’t want your new windows to be smashed by falling trees not long after their installation. High impact glass could be more necessary than you might think. The type of window you choose will also have more to do with the siding, roofing, and gutters that are attached to your home. That’s why the colors matter so much.
