The primary purpose of windows is to let in light and air into your home or building. However, while these practical functions are necessary, it’s important to choose the right style that matches your residential or commercial roofing, your siding and other features of your exterior. Pairing the wrong style of windows can make any building look inconsistent and inharmonious.
Choosing the right style of replacement window for your home is, unfortunately, easier said than done. With all the choices available to you, it can be challenging to find which ones are the best fit for your current style. Here are a few tips from our design experts at Howard Roofing & Home Improvements on how to choose a good window style for your home.
When you hear your residential roofing and window contractor talk about windows, most people picture a double-hung or single-hung window in their minds. These classics are so popular that they are the default “look” for windows worldwide. These windows are characterized by sashes that can be slid up or down, offering homes great views and lots of air circulation.
Another classic, casement windows are more commonly found in modern and contemporary homes. Traditional homes may use casement windows for specialized purposes such as kitchen or bathroom windows. Casement windows are easy to operate; however, they don’t offer the same amount of ventilation as a double-hung.
Bay and Bow Windows
Architects and roofing and exterior designers love the outward projections of a bay or bow window. These windows provide a small additional floor area, perfect for kitchens and living rooms. They are often made with several window panes which can be opened to promote air flow. Use bay windows to give a small room extra storage or seating space.
