Many people choose Vinyl Windows as alternatives to aluminum, wood and fiberglass windows due to their energy efficiency, easy installation and effortless maintenance requirements. Whether in a new home or a replacement, these vinyl products provide their own advantages to a homeowner. One of the very well known advantages of vinyl windows is the high level of insulation and protection they offer. Compared to other types of windows, they will seal your room year-round, protecting from the heat of the summer and the cold of the winter. With high heating and air-conditioning costs, it is becomes a priority to keep your home costs down.

Most people have seen a huge significance in the difference that any type of remodeling, renovation or replacement of windows has on their homes. Vinyl windows will provide the same type of effect, resulting in a larger home investment, but one that has a high rate of return, effectively paying itself off with reduced costs of energy bills within only a couple of years. For certain homes, replacement of the windows will mean immediately savings as such a problem may afflict much older homes and be the cause of high energy bills in the first place.

With different types of vinyl windows, their selection and easy installation provides many incentives for people who may be able to do the job themselves. The product itself is inexpensive to manufacture and install, as they will fit in place of existing windows that do not require much remodeling or renovation of the surrounding walls. This also offers a low cost of renovation that is only directly associated with the windows themselves. You can also choose from a variety of Vinyl Windows that range from different widths, locking mechanisms, opening options, colours, material and styles. This wide variety is what makes this specific product so attractive for new and existing homeowners.

The last advantage to keep in mind is the low maintenance requirement of such windows after they are installed. Their durable surface is already stained and finished, providing sealed protection against the elements inside and outside your home. They will resist dirt, stains, mold, scratches and dents. You can be sure that the exterior casing will remain in its original shape for years to come, no matter how much UV light it is exposed to.

Although they are popular in certain homes, older models and some newer designs, Bay Windows are not very often used or seen in many properties. This type of design is often associated with Victoria architecture that had first achieved popularity in the 1870’s, commonly used to provide the illusion of a larger room. In addition to the cosmetics of the window, Bay Windows are also used to increase the flow of natural light into a building, as well as provide views of the outside that would be more difficult to obtain with conventional or flat windows.

In selecting the right product for your home, you will find that Bay Windows come in a variety of shapes, heights, colours, angles and designs. Although each one of these designs is meant to ultimately provide with a better view of the outside, a decorative look on the inside, and the notion of a bigger space within a room, you must also consider how they affect the look and style of your home on the inside and the outside. The composition of these windows could mean that you have either one solid piece that spans the length of the window, or multiple pieces that can in fact be opened as regular windows.

Generally, you will find that Bay Windows are composed of three different windows that will extend out from the home. These are typically made of one large fixed piece in the middle, in addition to a casement on either side. These casements are the parts of the window that will open up to the outside of the home. Providing the look of an angular bow from the outside, they will accentuate the exterior of your home, and provide for great ventilation and control over the flow of air into the room. The designs are highly energy-efficient and they are easy to secure with double-latches that will ensure security and safety to your home.

When selecting a design for your Bay Windows, keep in mind that by installing such a product in your home, you will also be gaining a little bit of space on the interior of the middle selection. Therefore, we recommend that you select the right product that will allow you to utilize the space, depending on the size, for either some type of decoration or a small sitting area.

In comparison to bay windows, Bow Windows are composed of a different shape and look that may seem similar but is in fact different in design. Rather than only a composition of three parts to it, these windows are in fact composed of sometimes four, five or more windows that are put together to create this product. Typically, these windows are composed in such a way to give them more of a rounded shape rather than a solid angular cut to them. Therefore, you may find that a bow window would be composed or three or more windows in the middle and two casements on the sides.

Customization of Bow Windows also makes it easy to select the product that best suits your home. The more circular or angular you wish the window to be will determine how many pieces are used to design it in order to give it that look. Just the same as bay windows, Bow Windows provide for great insulation, security and energy efficiency, while providing a greater outlook on the outside of the home, the feel of a bigger room, as well as the option of opening two windows for increased and controlled ventilation.

The space you gain with installation a Bow Windows, or a bay window, means that you can use the extra flat area for decoration, plants, or an extra seating area for when you have a full house. The utilization of such a space is one of the reasons why these types of doors make for a great selection. The flexibility of options in installing such a product means you can work through your options and put a personal tough to it when it is all finally installed and ready to use.

Perhaps the most important tip about installing Bow Windows is to make sure that you are making the investment in a window that will look over a view that you will desire to look at. Think about the location of the window, as you do not want to be looking over a fence or an empty lot. Rather, make sure that this window can be in a room where you are over looking a beautiful view of a park, garden, or even your backyard.

Hopper windows are designed with the purpose of allowing the proper ventilation and air circulation into certain areas that cannot be reached through conventional means or window designs. In the case of a basement or a lower level apartment that could be slightly underground, a Hopper Window will serve as the best solution. Designed to open from the top and tilt forward, these windows provide for the maximum amount of ventilation and light into basements and other smaller openings.

Due to their nature and where they are used in the home, hopper windows are generally found to be energy-efficient and well designed, with unique systems that allow for easy sash removal and maintenance of the window. They serve a great purpose in security and safety, as they are easy to secure, open and close. Older homes are most likely found with conventional sliding windows that do not allow for much ventilation. However, recommendation is that remodeling a home should also mean upgrading windows to with a new feature.

The benefit of a hopper windows is that it is hinged at the bottom and it opens at the top. They have lower air leakage rates than sliding windows due to their unique design, and screens are placed on the exterior of the window unit. Another great advantage is that you can open the full size of the window, allowing for maximized circulation, by allowing the air to get into the basement at a downward direction, rather than providing only a slider window where the circulation is fighting to get into your basement space.

Whenever you are considering the replacement, upgrade and remodeling of your basement, turn your attention and selection to the hopper windows. Besides making for a great looking addition to the house, you will save money, energy, prevent water leakage and improve the air circulation around the living space.

You can think of Awning Windows as an alternative to other windows, swinging outwards from the bottom, hinged at the top to allow for motion to the outside. At one point in time, they were very common and popular in schools, manufacturing plans and some home designs. Still, you sometimes find these older style designs in some newer homes and condominiums. Mainly, you will find such designs placed in homes with temperate climates. Depending on the design, you will find some that can be opened manually with a hand crank, or some that are operated with pull chains.

In the early decades of the previous century, Awning Windows were very common in schools and manufacturing plants due to their ability in cooling down the interior, increasing and improving air flow within the space. I school environments, they needed to maintain a good flow of air in order to maintain the health of the children in schools and provide a comfortable learning environment. Conversely, this was the reason they were used in production environments, requiring an improvement of airflow to maintain a comfortable work setting for employees.

In some cases, you could find a set of Awning Windows in a larger space reaching the height of the ceiling, which was operated by pull chains or some sort of pulley system. This was done in order to provide for greater ventilation for larger space, and offering a better flow of heat and cold, depending on the desired result. With such designs, homeowners can take advantage of this design at times of rain, where you can retract a window far enough to still leave a breeze coming through with a whiff of fresh air at any time of the day. With the advancements of technology, windows have become less popular and less in favour than others.

However, there are many benefits to using Awning Windows in place of air conditioning and ventilation technologies. The fresh air you can acquire from the natural breeze is advantageous to many living conditions, and many prefer the fresh smell of nature rather than the circulated air you get with mechanical systems. Think about the look of your home, the natural breeze and the advantage a natural flow of air can add to the atmosphere within your home.

When you are looking at a Casement Window, you will think of a book – hinged to open and close like a book that can swing either way. These windows can also swing, open and close inwards or outwards. They consist of frames, hinges and handles that facilitate the operation of the window mechanism. With several types, styles and designs, they provide different options to consider for installation in your home.

Typical casement windows are vertically hung, hinged on either the left or the right side, opening outwards from the wall. There are other different types such as the French casement windows, providing separate panes of glass and hinged on both sides. However, regardless of the style, you will find that these types of windows are no longer popular as they used to be once a long time ago. However, replacements are still being manufactured to accommodate for the few homes and properties that still house them. Just like other styles of windows, Casement Windows can be installed as single units, offering little resistance or need to remodel or renovate the existing walls surrounding it.

It can also be an ideal installation above a cabinet, countertop or other locations that are slightly more difficult to reach. With the design of casement windows handles, their operation becomes easier with the placement of their locking mechanisms. In addition, these windows will swing either in or out, but many people will also avoid swing the window open in smaller space, due to restrictions in smaller spaces and areas. The window swinging inwards may also become a problem getting tangled with hanging items such as blinds, drapes and window sheers. When selecting this type of window, you need to keep in mind how particle they are to your specific area.

Сasement windows can also become decorative in your home. With their design and glass features, you can use these as doors to cabinets and other smaller storage areas.

The purpose of such a design is to allow for opening the window in the traditional and conventional sense from the side, hinged on the left or the right, or tilting the window open from the top as it is hinged from the bottom. Basically, tilting a window forward while it is hinged at the bottom will make it look the same as a hopper window. The advantages to such a design are to provide the ability to control the flow of air into any room, protest against any elements, and help push the air circulation in whenever needed.

For example, considering an installation of a Tilt and Turn Windows in a room of the home that is used as an office has the advantage of getting fully controlled air circulation into the home, without the headache of blowing any paper off your desk. This means that instead of direct wind, you will get the airflow without feeling the pressure. Comparably, there are many disadvantages to consider when selecting such a product.

The cost of such windows is sometimes as much as double that of other windows. Window treatment may be difficult due to its design, the screen on the exterior makes it more difficult to remove and clean, and the handle hardware costs more than conventional handles to replace and repair Tilt and Turn Windows. The same as any other type of window, consider your options, the cost of installation, the cost of repair and maintenance, the ease of maintenance cleaning, obstruction of the window depending on placement within a room, as well as the aesthetics of how it looks in your home. Such a decision is important in the investment of money and time you put into your home overall.
