If you’re looking for a replacement window this summer, then there are a few things you should know before you get started. First of all, the style of the window dictates how it is supposed to work. Second, you have many different choices, so it can be hard to narrow down which one is right for you. Let’s learn more about the different types of replacement windows that you can choose from when you are ready to start your next home improvement project.
Picture windows provide a fantastic view, but if you try to open or close them, you will find that they don’t move. However, they’re a smart choice for letting more natural light in, which can help you cut down on your energy bills during the daytime in the summer, since the days last so long. If you enjoy gazing out at the carefully-manicured landscape around your home, then picture yourself with these replacement windows.
Casement windows are highly similar to picture windows, but with one notable difference. They can move, which allows them to open and close. You can swing them from left to right or vice versa as needed.
You can also choose to have slider replacement windows installed. These will slide from left to right. They can be easier to open than traditional windows that only open up and down.
You might notice that your home is currently equipped with single hung windows. Tell the difference by testing how the window opens and closes. The bottom sash is the one that you can handle, and it moves vertically, only going up and down.
However, if you are unhappy with your single hung windows, you can replace them. Double hung replacement windows work somewhat differently than their counterparts. Both the top and bottom sash can open and close. As such, this style has become the most popular among homeowners. What this means is that double hung is the most versatile type of replacement window, and depending on what you want to have, could be the best option for you. The decision is yours. However, the real value of a replacement window is determined by the type of materials that are used in its construction – whether it is aluminum, wood, vinyl, or fiberglass – and who you have to install it.
