5 Types of Replacement Windows Great for Remodeling

Posted on April 26, 2019

Quad Cities Replacement Windows

Spring is in full swing and it's as good a time as any to think about remodeling your Quad Cities home. Spring is all about renewal and reinvigoration, and the look and feel of your home should be no exception. If you are considering a renovation or remodel, don't forget to consider replacing your home's windows as well. New windows are a great way to refresh the look of your home. Additionally, if it's been over 10 years since your home's windows have been replaced, getting new windows will help reduce your energy bill. The technology of windows has changed tremendously over the past decade, so getting new windows can lead to great positive changes for your home and its environmental impact.

It can be difficult, however, to know just what type of replacement window to choose. With so many on the market, the choices can be overwhelming. Here are 5 of the most popular replacement window types that could suite your home's needs perfectly.

Double Hung

The most popular of our replacement windows, double hung windows offer all the beautiful features of traditional windows, with all the technological advances of modern ones. Our windows feature triple-sealed weather stripping for maximum energy efficiency, as well as insulated glass. Additionally, these windows are virtually maintenance-free, requiring no painting, as they come in many styles to fit into almost any design aesthetic. 

Slider

Our slider windows are the perfect upgrade from this traditional window type. We have the weather-stripping and insulated glass to help protect against the weather, as well as easy-to-use lift out technology for easy ventilation. Our patented window design maximizes the amount of light provided by the window. These windows come in two or three panels to fit into any existing window space, and also come in a plethora of designs and colors. 

Casement/Awning

Our casement and awning windows are designed with your comfort and ease in mind. They are simple to use, with hardware that can come in a variety of metallic finishes. Additionally, they open a full 90-degrees, to provide easy reach for cleaning. They also have the ability to be installed with blinds between the panes of glass, reducing the amount of dust and other allergens that can collect on your window blinds themselves. This option is perfect for those windows in those hard to reach places.

Bay/Bow 

Our bay and bow windows are some of the best choices you can make if you are looking to add some depth and dimension to your replacement windows. We offer a cable system to guarantee level installation, as well as an insulation of the entire cavity to ensure minimal energy loss. Our bay or bow windows are also shielded against ice and cold weather, to help maintain their integrity and prevent shrinkage, which could cause cracks to form between the window and your home. They are wood-covered vinyl for maximum strength and effectiveness.

Decorative

Finally, if you would like to add something a little special to your home with your replacement windows, you should consider adding a decorative window or two. Our decorative windows include beveled glass which can be done in any number of designs. Additionally, our decorative windows include those windows with interior blinds, a great choice for those looking to never have to clean their blinds again! We also offer additional grids in a variety of styles and colors that can be added to any replacement window you may choose.
