4 Types of Windows to Consider for Your Home or Business


4 Types of Windows to Consider for Your Home or BusinessWhen choosing windows for your property, you want to get the right mix of functional and aesthetic value. Your windows should provide energy-efficiency and safe locking mechanisms, but you also want them to enhance the visual appeal of your surroundings. During a consultation, a window installation professional can help you determine which type of windows will be the best fit for your needs and budget. Here are four common types of windows to consider installing.

Single-Hung & Double-Hung Windows

These are the windows that you most often see. They differ in that single-hung windows have a nonadjustable upper sash and an adjustable lower sash, whereas on double-hung windows both sashes are adjustable. These windows help you readily attain the desired level of airflow, and it's also easy to clean both sides of them from inside.

Casement Windows

Casement windows are especially desirable for the tight seal that they create, which helps to optimize energy-efficiency. They open outward and have large panes that allow an abundance of natural light to flow into the room.

Picture Windows

If you want to have a wall-sized view of the surrounding landscape, then picture windows are a great option. Because they don't open, you'll want to be sure that you're OK with the lack of airflow in the area where they're installed. They're most desirable for homeowners who want to have a panoramic view and to avoid draftiness.

Slider Windows

As their name suggests, these windows slide open sideways. Because they don't have mechanical parts other than their locking mechanism, slider windows tend to be one of the more affordable window types. They're easily opened and closed, and their wide gap makes it easy to pass large objects through them.
