Buying replacement windows for your Long Island home is a big commitment. It’s important to buy the right style for your home and your lifestyle to ensure you get the most satisfaction for your budget. In this brief guide, we’ll walk you through four of the most popular window types from Renewal by Andersen of Long Island. Each type looks and functions differently, to help meet your unique needs and satisfy your personal tastes. Read on to learn how to choose the best window for you and your home.
Double Hung Windows
This high-performance, classic window style consists of two moveable sashes that move up and down on tracks. Renewal by Andersen’s of Long Island’s double hung windows tilt inward for easy cleaning, so you can clean all windows on both sides without leaving your house or climbing on a ladder.
Double hung windows are preferred by homeowners for their classic style and flexibility in ventilation options. You can open the bottom sash, the top sash or both halfway to get the kind of ventilation you need. They come in multiple formats including equal-sized sashes, one larger upper sash or one larger lower sash. You can pick the one that is the shape and appearance that you prefer.
Casement windows consist of a single sash that is opened via a crank. Renewal by Andersen of Long Island’s casement windows can open to the left or right, and open wide for easy cleaning. More than any other type of window, casements have excellent ventilation that can actually “capture” a breeze and direct it indoors.
Whereas double hung windows always have at least half the window covered by a sash, casement windows open fully. If you prioritize natural ventilation you would be very happy with your casement windows. They’re also designed to seal tight, for maximum energy efficiency at times of the year, whether the outside temperature is hot or cold.
Offering expansive views and ease of use, Renewal by Andersen of Long Island’s sliding or gliding windows are practical and attractive. Their narrow window frames allows homeowners to enjoy beautiful visions of the outdoors all from within their own home. With a range of options including multiple custom dimensions and multiple or single sliding sashes, sliding windows are an excellent option for most homes.
Bay and Bow Windows
Bay and bow windows both protrude from the house, brightening interior spaces with exceptional illumination. What’s the difference between bay and bow styles? Bay windows have a deeper projection and consist of fewer sashes, while bow windows have a shallow projection and consist of more sashes. Bow windows have an almost curved appearance, while bay windows are typically known for housing window seats.
