If you need replacement windows for your home in the Denver Metro area, you’ll want to research which windows are best for you, your home and your lifestyle. There are four basic window designs, and due to differences in climate and the orientation of your house, no single type is suitable for all homes.
Hung and Slider windows are the most common window styles due to their affordability. Unfortunately, if not constructed properly, they can suffer from excessive heat loss. If you choose one of these window styles, you’ll want to make sure they are quality vinyl replacement windows.
Casement windows use a crank to open and close. Generally, casement windows cost more than slider windows because they have more moving parts, but they tend to be sturdier and can withstand wind better. Surprisingly, wind can actually reinforce a casement window’s insulation instead of degrading it.
Fixed, or picture windows, offer the greatest insulation value due to their fixed position. Because of this, cleaning may be more difficult than with other window styles and you can’t open them up to get a breath of fresh air. Picture windows are useful in business that have air movement systems or in homes with other windows that open and close for ventilation.
No matter what window style works best for you, it is important to make sure that the windows you choose have the best insulation value possible. Contact Wholesale Home Improvements at 303-215-0475.
