What Type of Window Is Best for You?
At Tri-County Windows and Siding, we offer plenty of choices, from double-hung windows to casements. But how do you know which is right for you? Each window style isn’t just about aesthetics; each comes with its own benefits, as well. Whether you’re looking for energy efficiency, durability, or safety, we have something for you.
Double Hung Windows
Our double hung windows are our most popular style – and for good reason. With traditional windows, only the bottom pane can be adjusted. If you have kids or pets, this may not be a safe option. Double hung windows are aptly named because they have two sashes that are both adjustable. On a warm spring day, you can open the top or bottom sash to let the breeze in.
This is a great option for families with small children and pets. You can open the window where it’s out of reach of little hands and paws. Additionally, both panes tilt inwards for easy cleaning. If you’re looking for a low-maintenance, safe window option, double hung windows are perfect for your home.
Casement windows are big, beautiful, and let a lot of air in. These windows are operated by a crank and can be fully opened to let as much air in as you want. Casement windows can be configured in a way which allows them to open in different directions so you can fully take advantage of cool breezes on a hot day. This style of window is versatile and looks good on almost any home. Casement windows are ideal for living rooms, kitchens, and bedrooms. They offer an excellent view, like bay windows do.
Sometimes, casement windows can take up a little too much space. If you live in a tightly packed neighborhood or a fully open window would block a sidewalk or pathway, sliding windows might be a better option. Sliding windows are easy to use and take up no space at all. The sashes can be slid from either side or can both be slid to the middle.
Sliding windows are known for their low-maintenance and durability. They have fewer moving parts, which means they don’t need to be repaired as often as traditional windows. Likewise, our airtight seals reduce energy loss, saving you money on utility bills. If you’re looking for something low-maintenance and affordable, sliding windows are a great option.
