How Replacement Window Styles Beautify Your Home
Old, damaged windows can decrease your home’s protection from the elements, increase energy bills, and hinder clear views of the outdoors. Replacement windows, from TeVelde and Co., give you style and beauty that boost curb appeal and your home’s interior design.
Choose from Popular Replacement Window Styles
The window styles you select to replace your current windows directly impact your home’s interior looks and exterior curb appeal. Choose from timeless double hung windows to specialty shapes to achieve the best look for your home. Here are some style selections to select from:
1. Double Hung Windows
Popular double hung windows are made up of two sashes. They slide up and down on vertical tracks. Found in modern farmhouse homes to traditional style homes, they are cost-effective and practical. Their timeless look gives your home a classic feel. They offer fabulous ventilation because the top half of the window can be lowered while the bottom half is raised—giving your home great circulation of air flowing both in and out of it.
2. Single Hung Windows
These look the same as double hung windows, but they simply open from the bottom up, giving your home added security. These tend to last longer than double hung windows because they have fewer moving parts. They offer great energy savings because of the fixed position of the top half of the window.
3. Casement Windows
Perfect for contemporary homes due to their clean lines and design elements, these beauties crank open horizontally, like a door—opened to the outdoors. These are the second most popular replacement window type. They give your home fabulous breezes since they catch the wind and guide it into your home.
4. Slider Windows
These easy to open windows slide open and closed. Their sleek design makes them popular in Mid-Century Modern homes. They work well when you need a large window in a particular room.
5. Bay and Bow Windows
Make a design statement with these gorgeous windows. Perfect for your favorite reading nook or kitchen nook, these give you an abundance of natural light in your home, lifting the atmosphere. They expand your room’s look and give you great views of the outdoors.
6. Awning Windows
These unique windows open upward while their hinge connects the top of the window to your home. As a bonus, you can open these windows even if it’s raining outside, giving you fresh air more days of the year. They are used in basements and boost the safety of your home.
7. Picture Windows
These windows give you visual interest and open up your home to an abundance of natural light. They don’t open or close, but the tremendous design statement they make brings exceptional beauty to your indoor space.
8. Specialty Windows
Specialty geometric windows give your home visual interest and provide you versatile design options for unique spaces in your home.
Window styles come in a variety of material options:
Energy-efficient Fiberglass windows are the strongest, most durable window material available. They stand up to Omaha weather without warping, rotting or bowing, making them a great choice over vinyl. They endure extreme cold as well as UV rays. Their sleek profiles give you more glass space for greater views of the outdoors, and more natural light indoors. With multiple customization options, fiberglass windows offer you long-lasting performance and outstanding beauty.
Cost-effective vinyl windows make window replacement more feasible and practical. They offer energy efficiency and low maintenance. They never need to be repainted, saving you time over their lifespan. There are other cost differences between vinyl and fiberglass windows that could help you decide.
The strongest of all clad windows, aluminum clad gives you durable, dent-resistant, cost-effective windows. Aluminum clad windows aren’t as energy-efficient as vinyl or fiberglass due to the fact that aluminum transfers heat more easily.
Once you move from single pane to double or triple pane, you get the advantage of adding insulating argon or krypton gas between your window panes to boost insulation even further.
When you live in Omaha, your home needs to be well insulated from the chill of winter. Double pane windows give you significantly better insulation than single pane windows, and are highly recommended to keep your home’s indoor temperatures comfortable and draft-free each winter.
Up to 20% more efficient than double pane windows and up to 50% more efficient than single pane, triple pane windows offer superior insulation for your home, and yield energy savings throughout the year.
