Don’t simply choose the exact same window styles as your old ones for your upcoming window replacement project, as you would miss the opportunity to boost your home’s beauty. The first thing to know is it’s possible to switch to a different window style, size permitting. So before you commit to buying replacement windows, consider the following styles.
Casement windows – Casements are second only to picture windows when it comes to energy efficiency by preventing indoor heat from escaping during cold days. Today’s casement windows are operated by a crank and can be fully opened outward, providing excellent ventilation. The best thing about casement windows is that it works in both modern and traditional architecture.
Double hung windows – You may think that double hung windows are too common a design, but this is where choosing a custom replacement window builder like ourselves will help turn an ordinary design into something extraordinary. Renewal by Andersen® replacement windows are fully customizable; choose different interior and exterior finishes and grilles to match your patio doors or existing architectural style. Also, our double hung windows are extremely convenient to clean and maintain, thanks to sashes that tilt inwards made with low-maintenance Fibrex® material frames.
Sliding windows – If you need a good balance between space-saving and easy operation, then you should choose sliding windows. Sliding windows are perfect for high-traffic areas like footpaths, where outswinging window styles like casements may get in the way when opened. Our sliding windows feature the same gliding mechanism used on our patio doors, ensuring smooth operation every time.
Bay or bow windows – Bay or bow windows are the only window styles that actually add physical, useable space in addition to the visual expansion. Replacing your ground-level windows with bay or bow windows creates a sense of stability and it actually makes your home look bigger. You can use the resulting bay space as a window seat, a storage area, or a nice, cozy nook. Most ground-floor wall openings are wide enough to accommodate bay or bow windows, so switching to these windows shouldn’t be a problem.
