When you contact Replacement Windows of Katy about a home window installation in Houston, you’ll have a variety of styles to consider. The style that you choose for your Houston window replacement should complement your home’s existing architectural design, so that you can improve the resale value and curb appeal of your Houston home. Here is a look at the basic styles available at Replacement Windows of Katy for your window replacement.
Double-Hung Windows, Single-Hung Windows, and Slider Windows
Double-hung windows are a classic window style that can complement almost any home. They consist of two operating sashes that move up and down, allowing you to enjoy ventilation from the window on the top, bottom, or both. Single-hung windows only have a lower operating sash. Slider windows operate the same as double-hung or single-hung windows, except that they slide from side to side instead of up and down.
Casement Windows, Awning Windows, and Transom Windows
Casement windows are a less modern window style, they consist of a sash that is hinged to a side jamb, and they open outwards by cranking a handle or operating a slider bar on the windowsill. They provide excellent ventilation, allowing for energy conservation during more mild weather. Awning windows consist of a sash that is hinged to the top of the window jamb or sill, and the window tilts outwards when it is opened. Transom windows are shorter, narrower awning windows that are typically installed above or within front doors or exterior doors to improve ventilation.
Bay Windows and Bow Windows
Bay windows are a very striking, dramatic window style that have been popular for hundreds of years. Bay windows consist of one or more sashes that protrude outwards from the wall, combined with angular or perpendicular side sashes that run back towards the wall. Bow windows are similar to the window style of bay windows, but they form a gradual arc rather than sharp angles.
