Getting the window of your choice depends on the house that you put up. Ensure that whatever window you put up should be that which will bring enough light in to the living room. Windows in large rooms should be wider than windows in small rooms. The size of the window needs to be the right size. Just determine the proportions of the window panes and the pattern of the window to make the window sizes the same.
Types of Windows to Choose From
We have the Single-hung windows where the bottom moves up and down but the top remains fixed. Double-hung windows are also the same except that both the top and bottom move up and down. Two-lite single slider windows slide horizontally instead of opening vertically. Trilite windows have three equally sized horizontal panes of glass, with the bottom moving up and down. Casement windows open by turning a crank that opens the window on both sides. Awning windows are small, hinged at the top with the bottom side sash swinging. Hopper basement windows with hinges at the bottom to make the window swing outward. Bay and bow windows are similar; they have a large window protruding out from the frame of the house.
Materials Used in Window Replacement
Window frames comes in many varieties. We have aluminum, wood, vinyl and fiberglass. Each frame material has advantages and disadvantages. Aluminum frame cause conductive heat loss. Vinyl windows are strong thus provide very good energy saving. Wood windows are not affected by heat thus are less prone to condensation. If you prefer wood window then you should be ready to paint them periodically. Fiberglass window are still new in the market so they are not found easily. This makes them more expensive.
The window may not seem that important when you compare it to other elements of the house as you come out with your perfect home but it is one thing that makes every inch of the house work the way it does. Apart from light, the window lets air into the house. Houses without windows can be stuffy and not conducive to stay in therefore seek the professionals to come up with your perfect choice of a window.
