These 4 Types of Replacement Windows Are Great for RemodelingMarch 1, 2019 2:59 pm
Sometimes it’s just time to give your home a facelift — or at least a couple of rooms. But remodeling isn’t all tearing down walls and throwing on a fresh coat of paint. Every remodeling project is different, but often, your windows will also come into play. The types of windows your newly remodeled room will need is up to you. However, these four window styles tend to be popular when it comes to remodeling.
Awning windows are one of two types of hinged windows (we’ll get to the other later), in this case, hinged from the top and opening out. They’re popular for their energy savings and customizable ventilation. When placed high on the wall, they can help to flood daylight down into your room, a process called “daylighting” that could help lighten the room up aesthetically, as well as potentially lower your electric bill.
Casement windows are the other type of hinged windows, but these are hinged at the side, much like a door. They’re elegant in shape, tall and narrow. They also offer the best ventilation of all replacement window shapes, functioning almost like a sail in the wind. When closed, these windows are encased tightly in their frame for added energy efficiency. You can install a few casement windows in a row to create a more elegant effect and let in more light.
Double Hung Windows
Double hung windows remain the most popular type of replacement window on the market today. With two movable sashes, one moving up and the other moving down, they offer versatility that’s hard to beat. They’re easy to clean and often come with custom window grids for an added touch of style. If you want a clean, traditional look, double hung windows are perfect for your newly remodeled home.
Finally, consider picture windows. These windows can come in all shapes and sizes, depending on your personal aesthetic. What stands out about picture windows is that they don’t open at all. These are purely designed to let in light and outdoor views, which they do brilliantly, without leaking in cold air from outside. Big or small, round or rectangular, there’s a picture window available that would look beautiful in your room.What types of windows are you interested in installing for your newly remodeled home?
