In this Renewal by Andersen of Long Island replacement window and patio door article we’ll introduce you to three popular operable replacement window styles. The double-hung, casement and sliding window styles have many benefits for homeowners.
These tips will help you discover how your design choices will impact the way your home looks and how well your new windows complement your lifestyle.
Double Hung Windows: Double Your Ventilation Opportunities
Double-hung replacement windows are undeniably very popular on Long Island, especial among people who live in traditional colonial ranch homes.
This style includes two movable sash, allowing you to control where air flows through your window: top, bottom or a combination of the two
Traditional and custom grille patterns allow you to complement existing architectural features or create a stunning contrasting focal point of interest. And, if you want decorative options, this is the perfect style for you.
Here are just a few decorative solutions you might consider as you design your windows for every room.
- Check rails for traditional or contemporary design schemes
- Unique configurations, including Oriel styling which features a larger top sash and cottage styling featuring a larger lower sash
- Patterned glass to obscure all or part of your view
- Factory finishes and paintable interiors to give you limitless opportunities to reflect your personal style and personality.
Horizontal Sliding Replacement Windows: Space Saving Design
Sliding windows, sometimes call sliders or gliding windows, are an excellent choice for areas in your home where a swing-in or swing-out window style could pose safety hazards. Like double hung windows, sliding replacement windows allow you to enjoy a refreshing breeze without blocking walkways or traffic patterns.
Plus, when you replace a large picture window with a slider, your configuration opportunities increase. You can build a window that opens on the left and right side, or create an extra wide opening, with or without grilles.
Sliding windows are known for their low profile which creates a larger viewing area compared to another style of the same overall size and shape.
Beauty, function and tons of design flexibility — what’s not to love about this space-saving replacement window style?
Casement Windows: The Most Energy Efficiency Operable Replacement Window Style
The third style in today’s replacement window portfolio review is the casement window. Popular for its single handle operation and safety features, casement windows are also the most energy efficient operable window style.
The side mounted hinges allow you to open the window fully to “catch” and direct a gentle breeze into your home. And, this style provides unparalleled protection against weather elements with a very tight seal.
Casements perform perfectly as stand-alone window units or joined with a variety of operable and inoperable window styles. As an added bonus, you can build extra large windows that still allow you to enhance ventilation without worrying about stressing the window frame, particularly our strong, efficient, low maintenance Fibrex window frames.
You’ll find casement windows in almost every room of a home, but they are particularly useful anywhere you might have to reach to open the sash, such as over a kitchen counter, above sinks, or in the restroom over a bathtub.
With so many features, it is easy to see why this made the top three list in our most popular replacement window styles for Long Island homeowners.
