3 Types of Replacement Windows for Your House

Do you have broken windows or cracked windows in your home? Or are you tired of looking at the same windows you’ve been staring out of for years and years?

It may be time to look into getting replacement windows for your home. In fact, not only will you feel like you have a more aesthetically pleasing home, but it can also give you an 85% ROI if you choose to sell your home down the line.

Read on to learn about the different types of replacement windows for your home.

Singe-Hung Windows

Wherever you go around the country, you are most likely going to encounter a single-hung window.

This is a window that is durable and safe, and small enough to put in pretty much any space. The windows are only operable from the bottom, which makes them less susceptible to leakage or air filtration from the outside. This makes them a popular type of window for coastal areas or areas where high winds and heavy rain are possible.

Once you replace these windows to a newer model, you may even want to take a look at replacing doors to look similar.

Casement and Awning Windows

When you think of a classic European hotel window, this is what you would get with a casement and awning window.

You have to crank the knob for the window to open (either horizontally or vertically depending on how it is installed).

When choosing this type of window, it’s important to know that you cannot install an AC unit during the summer months in this type of window. However, they are a more secure window as they only partially open.

Picture Windows

This is exactly how they sound. If you were to draw a window in a drawing when you were five, this is what you would draw.

These windows do not open. They are simply windows to look out at a view.

If you are in an area that has picturesque views, picture windows are often great windows to install into your home. If you like to have maximum security, this is also a great option for you.

You may also want to pair a picture window with another type of window to create a unique look. For instance, you could frame the backyard of your home with a picture window, and then on two sides use a single-hung window that opens. One window is for the view, two are to open for a breeze!
