What are the best replacement windows?
The best replacement windows to use will depend on what kind of window you need for your home. When you’re replacing your windows you’ll want to consider which brands and styles hold up best to weather such as rain and wind and other damage resistance.
You might also consider the condition of your current windows. You might not need a full window replacement if your frames and sills are in good shape. Instead you might consider a pocket replacement using individual units, rather than whole windows.
What are the different types of windows?
Windows come in all shapes, sizes and styles, from picture windows to casement and awning windows. The different types of windows are outlined in the list below.
Types of windows
Here is a list of the types of windows available:
- Picture windows: For natural light, picture windows are some of the best available. They are great for outdoor views. These types of windows are stationary and do not open
- Casement and awning: Most casement and awning windows are long rather than wide. They are hinged and open from right to left. This allows for top to bottom ventilation.
- Sliding: Most are double hung windows, which means both window sashes open and close, as opposed to a single hung window in which just one sash moves. Sliding windows are generally horizontal and the sashes open by sliding to one side.
- Energy efficient: These windows are specifically made to help make your home more energy efficient. They are usually framed with vinyl, wood or aluminum and can use Low E glass with a metallic coating to aid with heat transfer. With energy efficient windows you can save as much as 30 percent on energy bills.
House without windows
There are some modern architectural designs for houses without windows. For now these designs are primarily conceptual designs for crowded urban spaces. Some homes do, however, have rooms without windows like kitchens or bathrooms because these rooms aren’t considered part of the habitable space. Most areas such as bedrooms and living rooms are considered habitable space and must have windows.
Can home windows be tinted?
You often see offices with tinted windows, but home windows can be tinted as well, although it’s a less common practice. Window tints are films placed over the window to manage the effects of natural light on the interior of the home. The tints come in various shades and colors, including clear films.
Will home insurance replace windows?
In some cases homeowners insurance will cover window replacement. You might be able to file a claim if your window was damaged by hail, fire or even vandalism. You may also have liability coverage if you or a family member accidentally break or damage someone else’s window, but usually will not cover the damage if you accidentally break your own window.
Homeowners insurance also will not cover repairs or replacement for regular maintenance, such as replacing a window with a draft.
Home windows cleaning
It may not be your favorite task, but windows need to be washed regularly, about twice per year. Make sure you use the right tools to avoid streaks. Professionals use a variety of washcloths, including a damp chamois to wash and dry the windows. Squeegees are also valuable for keeping the streaks away.
