Which Window Is Right For You?
There are many different types of windows, all which provide their own unique sets of advantages and disadvantages. While most homes go with the standard vinyl window (as it provides energy efficiency, attractiveness, and affordability all in one) some homeowners desire more particular types of windows to fit their window replacement design aesthetics.
- Skylight: Installed in the roof and provided as a ceiling window, skylights are often found in studies, bedrooms, or bathrooms. Skylights are great at providing natural light but still maintaining privacy.
- Double Hung: Double hung windows have two sashes that allow both panels to open outward. This allows for maximum ventilation while still saving space and not taking up as much room as horizontally double-opening windows like casement windows would.
- Single Hung: A single hung window only has the top sash that is movable, allowing the top half to open outward to allow in fresh air.
