One of the key advantages of installing sliding windows and patio doors is the opportunity to expand your viewing area. Narrow frames mean you’ll capture the largest viewing area possible on an operable window for the size. And, almost invisible TruScene insect screens allow you to open your windows during mild weather without obstructing your view or worrying about gnats and flying insects.
Renewal by Andersen of Long Island sliding replacement windows are easy to operate and can be configured to open from the left, right or both. Dual sliding glass options and slim profile, contoured frames complement modern decorating schemes and are a good choice when you need windows that open without projecting into walkways or landscaping.
Low-profile Fibrex frames and easy-glide track features mean your windows are very easy to clean and maintain. Operable sash lift out for cleaning and you can keep your frames looking beautiful by simply wiping them down with a damp cloth.
Casement Replacement Windows: Capturing the Breeze
Casement windows are hinged at the side (like a door) and open outward with a single crank. Typically installed over countertops, sinks or above fixed built-ins or anywhere else you’re not concerned about obstructing the exterior traffic flow, the single-lever operation makes this a good choice when you have to reach to open your window. Because casement windows open fully from top to bottom, this window style “draws in” the breeze better than some other window styles. Only fixed windows are more energy-efficient than casement windows.
Excellent ventilation and light opportunities make this one of the most popular window choices with our Long Island customers. Easy to open, easy to clean and easy to customize with standard grille patterns or custom designed patterns to complement your home’s architectural style. Casement styles are not recommended when you need a very large window due to the weight of the glass.
Awning and hopper windows have many similarities to casement window styles, but they don’t have the same side hinge configuration. Instead, awnings are hinged at the top and hoppers have a lower-edge hinge placement. Ventilation is not as abundant as with casement windows, but the single-lever operation is convenient and you will typically find them installed in places where you have to reach, higher on the wall and over built-ins and over cabinets.
Since awning windows push outward, they are not a good choice if you want to open windows placed near outside traffic ways, patios or landscaping planted near your home. Hoppers open inward so they don’t interfere with outside traffic, but, depending upon placement, can interfere with furniture placement when installed lower on the wall. Both styles are easy to clean from inside your home and have the same ENERGY STAR certified glazing options that allow you to control light levels, block harmful UV rays that may damage upholstery and artwork, and can lower heating and air conditioning bills.
Which Style is Best for Your Home?
Many Long Island homeowners choose a variety of window styles when upgrading windows throughout their homes because different settings can call for different window styles. Choosing a combination of fixed and operational windows is a good strategy if you want to take advantage of all the high-performance features built into each style while not compromising your decorating goals to achieve maximum energy efficiency. All Renewal by Andersen of Long Island home improvement options offer a wide selection of internal and external color options along with standard and custom grille patterns and accessories to make your windows truly unique.
