Your windows are a prominent feature of your home’s exterior, which is why it’s important to match the style of your replacement windows with your home’s architectural design. Read on as [company_name] shares some tips on selecting windows that will enhance your home’s appearance as well as its functionality:
The first thing to consider when selecting new windows is your home’s architectural style. Some windows only “work” on contemporary homes, while others look best on traditionally designed houses. Sliding windows are a good example of a style that’s better suited for contemporary homes; their minimalist design enhances the aesthetic of a modern home, but may clash with a traditionally designed home.
Window Design and Function
The design of the window also plays a role in its functionality, with particular designs featuring a tighter seal than others. The most airtight (and thus energy efficient) windows are fixed-frame windows, since they don’t open at all.
If you want a window that you can swing open but that still features a tight seal, we recommend our line of double-hung windows, which feature the second-tightest seal after fixed-frame windows. As an added advantage, double-hung windows are so versatile that they can complement both modern- and classic-style homes.
We use Fibrex® composite material for our frames, a material that combines the strength of vinyl with the aesthetic appeal of wood. Finally, the Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass we use is engineered to reduce harmful UV light intrusion while still allowing ample natural light in your home.
