Popular Replacement Window Styles For Your Home

replacement windows in Rockwall TX

When it’s time for replacement windows in Rockwall, TX, you know you have the opportunity to make changes to your current window style. You can stick with what you have (only newer) if that works well for you or you can change to something completely different. Here are some of the most popular replacement window styles that you might want to consider for your home:  


Single And Double Hung Windows 

These windows are among the most common and they are vertical and slide open and closed. On single hung windows, only the bottom of the two panels moves. On double hung, both panels can move. These windows look nice and are handy because they can tilt into a house for cleaning. You don’t have to go outside and get out ladders to clean the exterior.  

Casement Windows 

Casement windows are sort of like doors. They have hinges on one side and swing out. This popular style gives you a window that opens all the way from top to bottom. It’s great for ventilation and is also easy to open in hard to reach places. It works well when you want to see more of your view, too, because there’s nothing interrupting your sight out of the window.  

Picture Windows 

These windows are stationary and don’t open and close. That makes them the most energy efficient option, but most people choose them because they want a large window to let in a lot of light and more of their view. Picture windows are often installed with other windows around them that do open so you can have the best of both worlds.  

Awning Windows 

These windows operate like casement windows, only the hinges are on the bottom and they open outward. These windows are often seen in basements, but they can be located in other areas as well. They can let in air, even when it is raining, since the awning of the window blocks debris.  

Slider Windows 

Think of double hung windows on their sides and that’s what slider windows are. They operate in a side to side fashion and slide open with ease. They work well when your wall space is very wide and perhaps not as tall.  

Bay And Bow Windows 

These architectural elements are popular for letting in more light and giving great views. They also make aesthetic features out of the windows and give you more space in the room that holds them.
