Many Long Island homeowners ask the Renewal by Andersen of Long Island replacement window team what the most popular window style is in our area. The simple answer is that we let our customers decide what works best for them — because while replacement windows should complement your home’s architecture, you also want windows that fit your lifestyle and your personal preferences.
Having said that, double-hung replacement windows and casement replacement windows are both very popular with our Long Island friends and neighbors.
The Incredible, Versatile Double Hung Replacement Window
The double-hung replacement window is probably the most requested style in our area. One reason may be that they perfectly complement the colonial, ranch and cape home styles, some of the most popular architectural styles seen in neighborhoods on the Island and the surrounding boroughs.
The double hung style features two vertical operable sashes so, you can lower the upper sash, or raise the lower sash for ventilation and emergency egress.
The frame profile is neither too broad nor too narrow, making this a good choice when you want your home windows to gently meld into the surrounding exterior. And, the frames have a large enough surface area to add accent colors for visual interest, too.
You can order double hung replacement windows in square or rectangle shapes. Rectangles are usually taller than they are wide, although there are times that a short, wide window unit is appropriate.
The tilt-to-clean design makes it easy to keep a spotless view of the outside world. And, all glass types, including patterned glass, are available to help you maximize energy-efficiency throughout your home.
The Super Energy-Efficient and Beautiful Casement Replacement Window
Casement windows crank out from a hinged side, opening wide to literally guide the breeze into your home. The casement style has the highest energy-efficiency of any operable window in our portfolio. Picture windows are rated highest for performance because they don’t have any moving parts or weather stripping that could wear or fail with abuse and/or overuse over many years.
It is possible to configure windows that open from the left side or the right side.
In some environments you may be able to configure a kind of casement replacement windows, the awning and hopper, to be installed so the hinged side is on the “top” or “bottom” of the window, with the hopper opening inward.
Installing two casement windows side-by-side that open on opposite sides creates a balanced appearance that many Long Islanders say adds a touch of elegance to an otherwise nondescript curb appeal when open.
This window style is perfect as a stand-alone window, as a complementary side window in a bay configuration or melded under (or above) a fixed window for air circulation and emergency egress.
The substantial frame profile makes the double hung operable window style perfect for areas where you already have a large, fixed window, and want to replace it with an operable style.
As with the double-hung window style, homeowners can choose glass types and other accessories to customize replacement casement windows to complement your family’s lifestyle and energy-efficiency goals.
Optional accessories, including hardware and window grilles, allow you to design either replacement window style to match or contrast your existing home décor.
