Each window style has its own advantages in terms of energy efficiency, reliability, cost and functionality. You can select a single style for your entire home or several different styles for variation throughout your home.
Sliding windows have one or two moveable sashes that glide horizontally to open. They’re easy to operate, provide unobstructed views, offer good ventilation and are lower maintenance than other windows.
They’re most often found over kitchen sinks, in bathrooms, in basements and in other areas with limited space.
Bay windows typically consist of a large picture window with smaller casement or double-hung windows on either side. This is a very distinct and attractive architectural addition to any home and can increase your home’s value and brighten your interior with ample natural light.
With four or more windows in a radial formation, bow windows are very similar to bay windows but have a rounder look. They add beautiful architectural details, increase your home’s market value, offer wide views and bring in an incredible amount of natural light.
This very common window type has two movable sashes so the window can open from the top or bottom. Double-hung windows offer great ventilation throughout your home, are easy to clean and are versatile.
What your windows are made of will dictate how efficient and effective they are. The frame can be made of several different materials:
As for the glass in your windows, most homeowners choose double-pane windows with low-E glass and a vacuum-sealed argon fill. This makes them very energy-efficient without affecting visibility.
With triple-pane glass, you’re adding cost without much added benefit.
Ultimately, the quality, aesthetic appeal and efficiency of your windows will come down to how well they’re installed. It’s important to choose an experienced installer like our team at Parker Insulation.
