The design style of your windows can also improve the aesthetic appeal of your home. Do you want to replace your home’s windows but don’t know where to start? M&J Roofing and Exteriors can help. Keep reading to learn more about the different home window types, the replacement process, and key considerations that you should keep in mind.
A double-hung window consists of two sashes that slide up and down in the frame. Unlike conventional windows, they don’s swing out to the exterior of the property with hinges. A double-hung window can open from either the top or the bottom.
A single-hung window is similar to double-hung windows. There is one difference, however, and that is that the top half of the window is stationary and only the bottom half can slide open.
A casement window is a window with a conventional design that opens to the outside on hinges. You open a casement window by turning a crank.
Awning windows are hinged at the top and open outward to allow for airflow from the sides and bottom.
Picture windows are large, stationary windows that don’t open but allow for ample light in the interior. Picture windows are more suitable for interior spaces that overlook scenic views.
Transom windows usually have narrow designs and are similar to casement windows. Transom windows are often used in combination with other windows or doors to allow for more natural light and airflow.
Slider windows are suitable for tiny spaces and work exceptionally well in contemporary settings. Sliding windows usually consist of two windows with at least one that can open by sliding horizontally over the other.
A stationary window doesn’t open and functions as a transparent wall. This type of window is prevalent in modern designs that have sufficient airflow. Stationery windows allow for outdoor views and natural light.
Bay or bow windows offer more functional floor space as the protrude outward from the outer wall of the building. A bay or bow window can consist of stationary or double-hung windows. Some bay or bow windows also feature casement windows.
M&J Roofing and Exterior offers high-quality window replacement services. Replacing windows correctly is an extensive process and should be done correctly to prevent future issues. The first step is to help you find the correct type of window. We will consult with you to help you determine which window type is best suited to your needs and budget. There are two methods that we typically follow to install new windows, namely pocket installation or full-frame window installation. Pocket installation is sometimes called insert window installation and involves installing a new window into an existing frame. When we carry out a pocket installation, we only remove the sash and fits the glass into the existing opening. We only use this method of window installation if the client doesn’t want to change the window type and if the current frame is still in good condition. When we conduct a full-frame installation, we remove the entire window together with its frame and trim. We then install a new window, frame, trim, and insulation. Installing a new window can make a significant difference to your home’s appearance, the level of natural light inside your house, and ventilation. High-quality windows with sufficient insulation can also increase your home’s energy efficiency and lower your heating and cooling costs. The higher energy efficiency is often enough incentive for property owners to pay the purchase and installation costs, as it saves them money in the long run.
At M&J Roofing and Exteriors, we will provide you with some information on the different window glass options and their different energy star ratings. The number of windows that you should replace depends on your restoration or remodeling project. Our team of window installers will replace as many windows as you like, whether it is one single window or all the windows in your house.
After replacing all your windows, you have to take active care of them. Keeping your windows and their frames clean can go a long way to ensure that your windows are in a pristine condition. Since window maintenance mainly consists of cleaning and wiping off debris, you will easily be able to do this yourself.
If a window is broken, you have two options: repair or replace. As a property owner, you may find a repair job to be preferable to replacing your entire window. Severe damage can, however, be challenging to repair effectively and, over time, repair costs may be much higher than the cost of merely replacing the window with a new, working one. Consult with M&J Roofing and Exteriors to determine if a window replacement is a better option than a repair.
Old windows, even ones that are in good condition, can allow cold air to enter your home during the cold winter months. Since the air in your home is too cold for comfort, your heating system will have to work harder to heat your home’s interior. By replacing your existing windows with new windows that are properly insulated and that offer sufficient energy efficiency, you can lower your heating costs by as much as 25%. Since the heating costs go down, homeowners will sometimes regard window replacement cost as an investment.
