Replacement Windows 101: Know the Types for Your Home

Understanding the types of windows available for different spaces will help you select the best replacements. A few types of windows that may work well for your home are listed below:

  • Casement windows: With the clean, simple feel of a picture window, these replacement windows use a simple hinge and knob to open easily and maximize natural light and fresh air in your home. Conversely, the solid, dense single panel means air-tight security when closed and locked, giving you added protection against potential intruders.
  • Double-hung windows: These popular two-paneled windows open by sliding the bottom panel up. Available in a range of styles, these windows fit well with a traditional or modern look and can be used with screens or air-conditioning units.
  • Bay windows: These half-hexagon windows protrude from your home with satisfying angles and easy charm. Inside, they create a spacious area for plants or a cozy reading area and can be easily integrated into your home aesthetic, whether your style is modern or more classic.
  • Bow windows: Like bay windows, bow windows can create an open, light-filled interior while adding visual interest to your exterior. The main difference from a bay window is the increased number of window panels for a more curved – rather than angular – effect.
  • Garden windows: Plant-lovers and green thumbs may love having a garden window to create a mini-greenhouse in your home (popularly placed over the kitchen sink). The window extends like a small box from the home, creating a perfectly warm, well-lit environment for potted plants.
