As autumn progresses, there are going to be certain home improvement updates that serve different purposes. Window replacement is a project that can be easy and has the highest return on investment of nearly any task. However, choosing the right windows for your home can be a challenge. You will need to consider the style and materials that match your aesthetic.
The first thing you will need to decide when choosing new windows is the style. Your windows will be visible around your house, and you will want to pick something that matches the exterior of your home. Double or single hung windows are among the most popular styles of windows. A double hung window consists of two separate sashes that can be opened by sliding up or down. A single hung window can only be opened by sliding the bottom half up. Double hung windows are ideal for homes with small children, since you can open the top half to allow air flow without worrying about injury. A casement window will have one sash operable by a lever and will open by swinging outward.
Vinyl windows are an extremely popular choice for window materials. Vinyl is essentially maintenance free, save routine cleaning. Vinyl is scratch-resistant and insulated, keeping heat or cool air inside depending on the season. Vinyl clad windows are also popular, providing the same insulation you would get with a wood window, with a beautiful vinyl coating on the outside.
