Window Styles: A Simple Guide

When it comes to choosing replacement windows, several factors must be taken into consideration. Frame materials, glazing options and energy efficiency are all important, but the window style is something you should prioritize from the start.

Bay window

Double-Hung Windows

Clean and simple, these operable windows are arguably the most recognizable window styles available today. With two sashes that slide vertically, they allow access to better air circulation around your home. If you are looking to boost your home’s energy efficiency, these are the windows to consider.

Casement Windows

This particular window style is the go-to option for many homeowners until sashed windows became popular. They have single or double panels that are hinged on the side, which means they open outward. These are a great choice if you want to increase natural ventilation and bring more natural light into your home.

Sliding Windows

Thanks to the windows’ sleek frames and wide glass area, they fit well in modern and contemporary homes. Sliding windows also allow you to maximize the space inside your home.

Picture Windows

Despite being fixed and inoperable, picture windows help maximize your home’s outdoor view. They also provide an airtight and durable seal to ensure consistent indoor comfort while keeping your monthly utility bills from spiking. They can even serve as accents for other windows and even French doors.

Bay and Bow Windows

If the focus of your window replacement is on aesthetics, bay and bow windows are the way to go. The former features a main window flanked by two others on both sides at an angle while the latter is made up of at least four panes that form a gentle arc. These windows bring in natural light, opening up your space and making it more spacious.

"Renewal was fantastic! They kept you in the loop from ordering to installation. They informed you at every step of the process of what was happening. The installers were kind, courteous, and professional. Everything was cleaned up after the installation. It was as if they hadn't been there except to see your beautiful new windows. I highly recommend them."

"3rd time using RBA for window replacement. Again, a very positive experience, the windows are great, the installation was done right, the professionalism was apparent from start to finish. Still have existing windows to be replaced and will definitely use RBA again to do it in the future."

"Renewal by Andersen was a good experience for us in replacement of our windows. From the initial meeting with the sales representative, Leslie, through the waiting period for manufacturing, and then to the installment process, our experience was excellent! Communication is key for me and we were kept informed and updated as our windows were being ordered and manufactured. Calls to update us on the installation process were welcomed and appreciated. They know how much is too much so they don't pester you with unnecessary contact. We love our new windows!!! Did I say that already??😂 We can tell a major difference in reduced Street noise and also the temperature at our windows. Excellent company, highly recommend!!"
