Windows do a lot more than let in natural light and circulate air. When you get Allen, TX replacement windows, you need to consider the full list of things they do. Finding the right style is a good start and you’ll have to consider your budget, your home’s architecture, your needs, and many other elements. Here are some of the region’s most popular styles and their benefits to help you get started.
Single And Double Hung Windows
These styles look just alike with one distinct difference. Single hung windows only open on the bottom half while double hung windows can open on both top and bottom. These are some of the most popular replacement windows in the area because they can be tilted into the house for cleaning the outside from inside. They also help with safety on the second floor since you can open the top potion and not the bottom to allow air to circulate. These windows also look great on pretty much any home style.
Casement windows open like doors with a hung on one side. They crank out and away from your house and are very popular in homes all across the country. They’re great for ventilation since the entire window opens at once and they can catch breezes and bring fresh air into the home. They also help you see views better since there’s nothing on the glass to interrupt the sights.
No one wants a house full of just picture windows, but when they are placed right, they work very well. Picture windows don’t open and close and are generally on the larger side. But, in the right location, they bring in a lot of natural light and let you see unobstructed views of whatever you have around your house. You can place smaller windows around a larger picture window to get the ventilation you want, if need be.
These windows are popular for letting air in, even while it’s raining. The windows have a hinge at the top and crank out, like a casement window on its side. The awning portion of the window blocks the home from rain or other debris, like falling leaves. These windows are especially popular in basements, but work well in other locations, too.
