Shopping for New Windows: A Basic Guide

Window replacement can be a huge undertaking, and that’s why it pays to have all the bases covered. This means considering a number of essential factors that ensure your new windows can improve your quality of life.

1. Choose a window style according to your specific needs. For example, if you want to increase your home’s access to natural ventilation, you should go for easily operable window styles, such as double hung and casement. When you’re aiming to maximize your home’s viewing area, you can never go wrong with picture windows, which make that aim possible with their slim frames and expansive glass. To add to your home’s available space, bay or bow windows come with a deep sill area you can use as a cozy breakfast nook, storage or lounge.

2. Look to your home’s architectural style as a guide. Some windows are traditionally associated with specific home styles. Double hung windows, for instance, are a staple in Colonial, Farmhouse and Craftsman homes because of these windows’ neat and simple design. Queen Anne homes, which favor unique shapes, won’t look the same without a couple of bay or bow windows. In Contemporary and Modern homes, picture and sliding windows will fit in just fine because of their sleek appearance.

3. Check the windows’ durability and energy efficiency. You’ll want your new windows to provide longer lasting performance while also keeping your home’s energy costs to a minimum.
