Replacement Windows: Style Options

Window technology has come a long way in recent years and that includes both innovative energy efficient features as well as style. The best window installations can replace your old windows and take your Roseville, CA home up a notch or two in appearance as well. Windows let light and fresh air into your home and they allow you to see the view outside as well. But when you are putting in replacement windows, you get to choose how you replace them and with what. While a new window in the same style of the old one might make sense, you have options to consider. The choices are limitless, but you might want to consider some of the following replacement window styles.

Single-Hung Windows
These windows have two sashes, but only one is operable and opens from the bottom going up. They are simple and work great if you have a low-budget. They also fit in with most home styles.

Double-Hung Windows
These windows look just like single-hung windows, but both of their sashes open. You can open them from the bottom up or from the top down. They also tilt-in, making them easy to clean from the inside. They can improve airflow in the home and look great on many house styles as well.

Casement Windows
These windows operate on hinges and swing open like a door. The hand crack and full opening operation maximizes ventilation and gives you an unobstructed view of whatever is around you. Casement windows are also energy efficient since they blow tighter against the house when the wind blows.

Awning Windows
These windows operate somewhat like casement windows, only they are hinged at the top. They create a unique look that is often combined with second windows, like a picture window. They give you airflow without exposing the inside to rain.

Bay and Bow Windows
These windows are often installed on the front of a house in order to get the most from their unique architectural features. They are a mixture between fixed and operable windows and have deep sills to give you a reading nook, more room in the dining area, or other benefits inside.

Picture Windows
These windows are generally larger and give you the most view. They are uninterrupted and do not open. They can be paired with windows that are operable and are commonly installed in the back of a house where there might be a nice view.
