You should learn about them before you begin shopping around for new windows for your house. Here are some of the most common types of replacement windows around.
Single-hung and double-hung windows are, as we just mentioned, windows that you open and close by moving them up or down. Sliding windows, on the other hand, are windows that you open and close by pushing them to the left or right. Oftentimes, these windows are a lot easier to open and close than single-hung and double-hung windows. They can also come in a wide variety of sizes based on how large you need them to be.
When it starts raining outside in the spring or summer, what’s the first thing you do? Chances are, you run around shutting all the windows in your home. With awning windows, you wouldn’t have to worry about doing that. Awning windows are designed to open outwards from the bottom, thus creating an “awning” over your open windows. Rain won’t be able to get into your awning windows, no matter how hard it might be coming down.
