When shopping for replacement windows, it's important to consider your budget, your home's style and how you want the windows to perform. Some other things to think about when selecting windows are ventilation, privacy, security, and maintenance level.
There are many different types of replacement windows to choose from:
Double-hung windows are one of the most common types of windows. Both the upper and lower sashes open for ventilation. Many double-hung windows are designed with a sash that tilts inward, making it easy to clean the exterior surface of the window from inside your house.
Single-hung windows look similar to a double-hung unit, but only the lower sash opens. Some single-hung window designs allow you to tilt the sash inward to clean the exterior.
Slider windows are generally horizontal and slide open and close rather than require cranking. This makes them far easier to open than other styles and they also provide a nice clean look.
Picture windows are fixed units that are designed to give you a wide, unobstructed view and let in lots of light.
Awning windows have a hinged sash that tilts out from the bottom. The unique design of an awning window helps keep rain out when the window is open. Casement windows are similar and are hinged on one end and pivot out for ventilation at the other end. They're easy to open and provide good air flow.
