NEW WINDOW INSTALLATION
Replacement Windows or New Windows?
What's the difference between a replacement window and a new window installation?
Both are new windows but there is a difference. Normally used in new home construction, new window installations are used when the window frame needs to built. A replacement window is a new window but it fits into an existing window frame. Replacement windows are easier to install and preferred unless the existing frame needs to be replaced or repaired. Replacement windows save you time and labor costs with all the benefits of getting new windows on your home.
Z-BAR REPLACEMENT WINDOWS
Double-hung windows are classic in appearance and have a vertical up and down slide to where both the bottom and top window panes move to open and close them. If only one window pane slides, the window is called vertical sliding or single-hung. Double-hung windows are compatible with most frames and they come in a wide variety of sizes and colors. The materials that can be used for double-hung windows includes aluminum, wood, fiberglass and vinyl.
Casement window are operated by a system that swings the window outward or inward. They fully open for easy cleaning and offer great ventilation. There are many benefits to installing casement windows in your home. But there are a few downsides of which you may want to be aware. Casement windows are unable to accommodate air conditioning units. There are some size limitations for casement windows as well. The window can’t be too large or heavy because the opening has to be able to support the window.
Sliding windows are a more popular window in today's times. They work great at insulating your home. A sliding window has very few components and thus there is very little to go wrong with a sliding window. The fact that there are very few components also makes sliding windows very low maintenance. All you have to do is to lubricate the slider occasionally. Sliding windows are one of the most economical types of windows that you can buy. They are more cost effective than most other types of windows and not only are they cheaper, they will also last for much longer
Home windows come in a wide variety of materials. There are advantages and disadvantages to the types of window frame material you choose. Vinyl, wood, fiberglass, and some composite windows generally provide greater thermal resistance. In addition to the window frame materiel there are different types of glass for windows that offer different benefits.
ALUMINUM OR METAL WINDOWS
You have many options when it comes to the glass in your windows. Your glass options include gas fills, heat absorbing tints, insulated, low-e glass and reflective glass. You also have the option of choosing single or double pane glass. Vinyl windows with double pane, low-e glass tend to be the more common window material used today. Safety glass is another good choice to use if there's any risk of a person walking through a window.
