How to Select New Windows
Windows will really change the way a house looks. Everything from the material used to the colours can bring out a home, and be customized to the homeowner's changing tastes and style. One window product that is gaining popularity is window casements. A casement is able to open at ninety degrees. This significantly improves ventilation and makes it very easy to clean. The casement offers a lot of natural light and really opens the interior space. This can give the impression of a bigger room, and the increase in light will be an uplifting change.
Casements can be installed with a variety of frame material such as aluminum clad exterior and wood interior, vinyl and wood in and out. Each option includes its own set of advantages:
Vinyl Frames- Vinyl is easy to clean and comes in a variety of colour options. They are equipped with a triple weather seal to keep the cold air out in the winter, and cool air in during the summer. Warm edge spacers reduce condensation and moisture, which helps reduce energy wastage, resulting in lowered utility costs.
Aluminum Clad with Wood Interior- A touch of wood inside the home can create a very cozy or elegant feel, depending on the décor and interior design. This material choice comes in pine with other species available upon request. Painting or staining the wood adds a level of customization that can re-create the home. The frames feature 90 degree corners to replicate tradition, and include warm edge spacers.
Wood In and Out- Wood frames are available in stain or paint grade, and for both interior and exterior. These frames pair very nicely with older homes. Century old homes can have wood window replacements installed which will duplicate the current windows. Many homeowners are hesitant to replace old doors and windows because they want to hold on to the house's original charm and appeal. With duplicates, nothing is lost but everything is gained, including a pest-free and warmer house. Mortise and tendon joints will be installed for an increased connection and a stronger joint.
Window replacements will change the way the home looks both inside and out.
