When selecting new replacement windows Houston, Dallas, Austin and San Antonio homeowners are faced with many choices. Some are obvious, like installing a high efficiency vinyl frame window from Amazing Exteriors with low-e coated double-pane glass package. Other options are a matter of personal choice that go a long way toward creating the look and feel you want for your home. Here is a rundown of the four most popular styles in replacement windows that Texas residents choose for their homes.
- Single and Double Hung Windows. Single and double-hung windows are found in many newer residential homes. These windows open by sliding a sash within the frame. Single-hung windows only open from the bottom, while double-hung windows open from either the top or bottom, making them a great for circulating air throughout your home.
- Casement windows. Casement windows pivot on a hinge, rather than sliding within a frame. This opening system can be a good option for anyone who may have trouble lifting a sash to open a window. Casement windows can be installed to open by swinging out to the side, or by angling up and away from the bottom of the window.
- Picture windows. Picture windows are exactly what they sound like, with an expansive glass area that gives you a bigger view and let in plenty of natural sunlight. Picture windows are fixed, meaning they can’t be opened. This allows us to offer a wider variety of sizes, shapes, and designs, since there are no sashes, handles, or other hardware to get in the way. Picture windows can also be installed in conjunction with casement, single-hung or double-hung windows alongside for ventilation.
- Bay and bow windows. Bay windows consist of three or more windows panel (typically fixed or casement style) that extend from the exterior wall of your home. Bay windows also feature an extended sill that creates more interior storage space and may even accommodate a window seat. Bow windows are similar but are arranged in a gentle arch to provide a more elegant look.
