Windows

Installing new windows can improve the energy efficiency of your home, but there are a lot of decisions that you’ll have to make before you spend any money. How many windows need to be replaced? If the current frames and sills are still in good shape, you may only need a partial replacement (which can save you money). But if they show signs of rot, you’ll have to replace the whole thing.

Be sure to speak to a professional for more information about how you should replace the windows in your home.

Types of Windows and Window Styles

There are many different types of windows and window styles. Some of them include, but may not be limited to:

  • Single Hung Windows — With single hung windows, either the bottom panel or lower sash moves up and down, while the upper sash is stationary. So when you open the window, the upper sash is covered up on the inside.
  • Double Hung Windows — Double hung windows are similar to the single hung variety, except the upper sash can move as well.
  • Arched Windows — Arched windows are rounded at the top, and they can be added to the architectural design of any home. Most arched windows don’t open or close, and they’re usually installed above regular windows that are meant to provide extra ventilation.
  • Awning Windows — Awning windows are great in areas that get a lot of rain, because they create a water-resistant awning when they’re opened.
  • Bay Windows — Bay windows stick out from an outside wall and create a small shelf inside the home. They rely on flat windows that are set onto an angled frame, and they’re meant to stick out of the home. This type of assembly will consist of a central window, as well as two side windows that are angled at about 30 to 40 degrees.
  • Bow Windows — Bow windows use curved panes of glass that create a circular areas around the home’s exterior, which is why it’s usually more expensive than bay windows.
  • Casement Windows — Casement windows swing either up or out to the side when they open, which allows it to be made of solid glass. So, they can create a less obstructive view from the inside.
  • Egress Windows — Egress windows are built more for safety than anything else. They offer an escape route when there’s a fire or any other emergency that can keep you from getting out through any of the doors, and they’re usually installed in basements.
  • Glass Block Windows — Glass block windows can be added to certain sections of a home so more light can come in, and they’re often decorated with frost or a patterned design. These windows are good for bathrooms, basements, and other areas of a home that require some extra privacy.
  • Hopper Windows — Hopper windows crank open from the top and tip down. And they can be added to tight spaces, which is why they’re often installed in basements or bathrooms.
