Before making your selection, always check reviews and ratings of window companies as well as for referrals from friends or family.

Double-hung windows

Double-hung windows are popular because they allow both window panes to move up and down easily, fitting seamlessly into various architectural designs while being easy to keep clean. Plus, double-hungs are an energy-saving choice!

homeowners select window materials based on their energy efficiency goals, local climate conditions and aesthetic preferences.

When shopping for new windows, look for contractors with wide product offerings, strong warranties policies and positive customer experiences. It may also be beneficial to see how long a local company has been doing business.

Awning windows

Windows are an integral component in conserving energy, as evidenced by estimates from the Department of Energy that heat gained or lost through old and damaged windows may account for up to 30% of home power bills. Replacing old, inefficient models with energy-efficient models is an excellent way to increase insulation while decreasing costs and energy bills.

Awning windows are well-known for increasing ventilation in homes, making them a top choice in hard-to-reach locations like kitchen sinks and bathrooms. Awnings also work well in small spaces as their outward opening preserves interior space rather than swinging inward.

These windows are user-friendly, and offer a range of finishes and glass options that meet any style preference or privacy concern. If privacy is of primary concern, try obscured-view glass which has been frosted or sandblasted to provide the ultimate in protection from prying eyes.

Insert or pocket installation

This installation method is less invasive and takes less time, yet still offers many advantages over full frame window replacement.
