Campbell, CA replacement windows come in a wide variety of different styles and each style serves a particular purpose and uniquely enhances the look of your home. Here we will list some of the most common styles of replacement windows.
Single-hung windows are the most common style of windows in existing homes, and they continue to be a common replacement window option, because they are an economical choice. With single-hung windows, the bottom window sash can be opened and closed, but the upper window sash is fixed and cannot be moved. To clean single-hung windows, you clean the inner side of the windows inside the house and you clean the outer side of the windows outside the house, which may involve using a ladder to reach them.
A newer and very common style of replacement windows is double-hung windows. Most new homes are constructed with double-hung windows unless the homeowner requests a different window style. With double-hung windows, the height of the window opening is greater than its width. Both window sashes open up and down, enabling you to have ventilation from the upper part of the window, the lower part of the window, or both parts of the window. Additionally, double-hung windows have latches that tilt the windows inward so the both sides can be cleaned from inside the house.
Another common style is sliding replacement windows, which are designed for window openings that are wider than they are tall. Both window sashes can slide side to side for optimal ventilation. Sliding windows also have latches that allow you to tilt the windows so that you can clean both sides of each window inside your house.
Awning windows have become a common window replacement style in recent years in areas where there is a lot of rain during the warmer months, because the windows open outward from the house, creating an awning that is resistant to water, which ensures that rain does not get inside the house.
Bay replacement windows are also a common window style that is chosen by homeowners when they want to create a gorgeous focal point for their home. Bay windows have three windows consisting of one large center window that comes out from the house with a smaller window angled toward the house on either side. The individual windows in bay windows are fixed and cannot be opened. The inner part of the windows must be cleaned from inside the house, while the outer part of the windows must be cleaned outside the house, and may require you to use a ladder.
These are just a few of the more common replacement window styles that are available. Many replacement window styles can be custom-built and fitted in places in your home other than traditional window openings. These window replacement styles enable you to have creative ways to let more light into your home, as well as adding decorative touches to your home.
