Have you ever seen a house or building and thought it could use an upgrade, but weren’t really sure why? Chances are it needed new windows. You’d be surprised how much of a difference new windows can make to a house’s appearance. Not only that, but new windows significantly help with insulating a house, leading to lower heating and cooling costs. Our decades of experience expertly installing windows, coupled with our relationships with window suppliers, makes Advance Remodeling the logical place to call the next time you need new windows.

Types of Windows

When choosing the type of windows for your home, it is important to consider the look, operating style, and energy efficiency you want. There are also several shapes and security factors to think about.

Not only do your home’s windows affect its architectural style, but they can also save energy, provide light and ventilation, and regulate the temperature of a room. To serve a wide variety of tastes and needs, windows are available in several types and sizes that operate and function differently. Here are some common window types:

Double-Hung Windows

  • Common window style that open by sliding the bottom sash up or the top sash down. Double-hung windows allow good control of ventilation.

Single-Hung Windows

  • Similar in operation to double hung windows, but only the bottom sash opens.

Casement Windows

  • Hinges on one side and swings out or in when you turn a crank. Provide excellent ventilation and energy efficiency because both sides are sealed tightly when closed.

Awning Windows

  • Hinges at the top and tilts out at the bottom. Awning windows are usually used for ventilation above a door or window.

Bay Windows

  • Typically three windows joined together. The center is often fixed with operating double-hung windows on the sides.

Sliding Windows

  • Consists of sashes that move horizontally on a track; usually one side moves while the other is fixed. Provides ventilation from the opened sash and is weather tight when shut.

Tilt-Turn Windows

  • Operated by tilting into a room. They allow for good ventilation, are easy to clean, and are ideal emergency exits.

Rotating Windows

  • Open by pivoting around a central point. They provide good ventilation and are easy to clean.

Circlehead Windows

  • Accent windows designed to be placed above other windows or doors. These provide light but not ventilation.
