Choosing the Right Window Type for Your Home

Choosing the right window type for your home will impact both your energy efficiency and aesthetics. Your options include single-hung windows, double-hung windows, awning windows and picture windows.

Foggy windows can cause moisture in your home, leading to higher energy bills. Warren window repair companies offer services that can fix this problem.

Awning Windows

Awning windows are hinged at the top and open outward from the bottom, allowing fresh air to flow in even during rainy weather. They look beautiful when positioned above sliding windows or a set of bay or bow windows.

Our vinyl awning windows have thermal breaks that stop the transfer of cold and heat, argon filled sashes, and low E coating for energy efficiency. This makes them an ideal choice for the energy conscious homeowner. You can also choose from a range of grille patterns to accentuate your windows’ look.

Sliding Windows

Also known as glider windows, sliding windows open sideways and are perfect for spaces where you don’t want a window to obstruct a walkway or patio. They can be combined with picture windows for a unique look that lets in plenty of natural light.

Composite slider windows have the appearance of wood with the durability and strength of aluminum. They’re resistant to warping and rotting and feature low-E glass for energy efficiency, which is especially beneficial in our chilly Warren climate.

Bay & Bow Windows

A bay window features three or more windows in a box-like extension of your home that can be used for shelving and a window seat. This allows for more space and lets in a lot of natural light.

Bow windows are more compact than bay windows and require less exterior space for installation. They provide a classy, eye-catching appearance that can enhance your home’s curb appeal and make it stand out from the neighborhood.

Your contractor should be familiar with all these styles and be able to advise you which would best fit your needs as a homeowner. They should also explain the benefits of each frame material so you can determine which has the right price point and energy efficiency level for your project.

Picture Windows

Window installation is a big job that should be left to the professionals. A professional can make sure that your new windows are installed properly and offer a lifetime warranty.

Picture windows do not open, but they frame an unobstructed view and allow in abundant natural light. They are a great choice for rooms that overlook beautiful gardens or scenic landscapes.

Energy efficient windows minimize heat transfer, helping you to reduce your energy bills. They also reduce your carbon footprint. They come with a range of glass options, including tempered and laminated. They also include security film that is rated up to 12 mil thick.

Casement Windows

Adding a classic, clean aesthetic, casement windows hinge on the side and open like a door with a crank. They offer a tight seal, and are one of the more efficient options for home or commercial spaces.

Combining the vast view of a picture window with the ability to open for ventilation, bay and bow windows are popular among Warren MI homeowners. They come in a variety of styles, finishes, and sizes.

Prevent drafts and reduce energy consumption by upgrading single pane windows with storm windows. Made of thick insulated glass, they provide an additional barrier against cold air and rain water. They also improve resale value for your property.

Double Hung Windows

Unlike single hung windows, double hungs slide upward so both the top and bottom sashes can open. This allows for fresh air during our rainy winters in Warren MI.

These windows are built to be energy efficient with a thermal break to stop the transfer of cold and heat, argon filled panes and Low E coating. They are available in a variety of styles and sizes to fit your home’s style.
