How do I Choose the Right Windows for my Home?


New windows aren’t just about letting in sunshine – they’re an investment in your home’s beauty, comfort, and energy efficiency. But with so many options out there, choosing the right windows can feel overwhelming. Fear not, homeowners! At Tri County, we’re here to guide you through the window wonderland and help you find the perfect match for your home.

Know Your Priorities
Before diving into styles and materials, consider what matters most to you. Are you prioritizing energy savings? Boosting curb appeal? Reducing noise? Identifying your main goals will help narrow down your window choices.

Unravel the Material Mystery
• Vinyl: The budget-friendly champion, vinyl is low-maintenance and versatile, offering a variety of styles and colors.  Not only the most economical option, but vinyl windows offer higher energy ratings and better warranties than other types of windows.
• Fiberglass: Renowned for its strength, durability, and energy efficiency, fiberglass windows are a premium choice for long-lasting pe rformance.
• Wood: Classic and elegant, wood windows offer unmatched beauty and insulation but require more upkeep.
• Aluminum: Lightweight and sleek, aluminum windows are ideal for modern styles and offer good thermal performance.

Style for Every Story
Double-hung: Timeless and versatile, these windows open vertically, allowing for easy cleaning and ventilation.
Casement: Hinged on one side, casement windows crank open wide, maximizing airflow and offering expansive views.
Sliding: Ideal for coastal areas, sliding windows glide smoothly, saving space and providing panoramic vistas.
Awning: Hinged at the top, awning windows open outwards, perfect for deflecting rain and keeping out elements.

Energy Efficiency Matters

Look for windows with high R-values for superior insulation, keeping your home cool in summer and warm in winter. Consider Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass that reflects unwanted heat and UV rays, saving energy and protecting your furniture.
