Want to give your home an updated look? Replacing your old windows is one way of doing it. The house will look brand new, plus you get the benefits of having brand-new windows which are more efficient and work better than your old ones. Let’s look at some of the top options we offer here at Millers.
Hinged at the top, awning windows open out at the bottom, offering generous ventilation and light without letting in rain or compromising privacy. These windows work well placed higher on the walls or in conjunction with fixed glass windows.
Bay and Bow Windows
Made of three or more panes of glass, bay and bow windows extend beyond the walls of your home to draw in more natural light. Bay windows have a large central unit flanked by smaller side lights set at an angle. Bow windows have four or more units of the same size joined to create an arc.
Hinged on one side, casement windows open out like a door. Because they open outward, they offer maximum ventilation as well as an unobstructed view. These windows are perfect in tight interior spaces such as over the kitchen sink or bathtub. They open easily with a single crank lever.
Double Hung Windows
The most popular choice of windows today is the double-hung style. They can be installed just about anywhere, don’t protrude when opened, and tilt inward for easy cleaning. This style of window works well in a traditional as well as modern home.
Horizontal sliders work much like double-hung windows, except they slide sideways instead of vertically. A slider offers an unobstructed view and a wider area for ventilation. Because they don’t rely on springs, pulleys, or levers, they tend to be more durable than other types of movable windows.
A picture window is made from fixed glass – it doesn’t open for ventilation. This style of window works well where you want to enjoy an unobstructed view. The wide expanse of glass allows the sun to warm the interior space during winter.
The type of window you select should match your home’s style and the way you want to live. To learn more about our selection of replacement windows, contact Millers today. We proudly serve our neighbors in central and northern New Mexico since 1985.
