When choosing replacement windows for your home, you may find it difficult to know which ones suit your space best. There are choices to make depending on your preferences, but with guidance from the experts at 1-800-HANSONS, you’re sure to love the finished product. Here are tips for choosing the best replacement windows for your home.
The Window Style
The style of the replacement window is your first decision, which will typically come down to the desired aesthetic and ventilation abilities. We offer a variety of windows at 1-800-HANSONS, including single hung and double hung, casement, awning and sliders. For common areas like living rooms, we can also provide bay windows and bow windows. Our team can help you decide on the colors and interior grid design.
The Window Materials
The most common materials for window frames include wood, vinyl and vinyl clad. Some homeowners choose aluminum frames, but they are less popular due to their energy inefficiency. Wood is both beautiful and classic, but it requires maintenance to keep it resistant to the elements. Vinyl is one of the most common choices because homeowners get everything they need: beautiful windows with zero upkeep, high energy efficiency, and an affordable price range. Vinyl clad windows are also a great choice; with wood inside of the window frame and a vinyl coating on the outside, vinyl clad offers the best of both worlds in terms of aesthetics and practicality.
There are even options for the glass in your windows, from the number of panes to the distance between them. For energy efficiency, low emissivity glass is the way to go. It’s coated with an invisible layer of material that restricts heat from passing through too easily. If you have kiddos at home, consider impact resistant glass. Accidents happen, and you never know when this type of glass could come in handy.
