It’s easy to get lost in a sea of options when you’re doing a window replacement.

There are plenty of window styles and types offered on the market today. They also come with different colors and designs. Some are also highly advanced, integrated with the latest tech devices.

When you set out to remodel your home, you have to be in touch with different contractors, from window manufacturers and installers to siding companies. You need all the help you can get. So in this post by Woodbridge Home Exteriors, we offer this short comparison of the most common window styles you can choose for your project.

1. Picture Windows

They’re good for the view and energy efficiency. Picture windows have large glass panes, as in picture frames. They are usually placed on the part of the house overlooking a nice view.

2. Casement Windows

Casement windows offer a durable window solution for your home. They have a strong locking mechanism with effective seals to lock in conditioned air and controlled temperature.

3. Double-Hung Windows

These are the most common type of windows. They can be opened at the sash mechanism so only half of the window is open at any one time. This style offers more ventilation compared to other windows. It’s also the best style if you like installing a window-type air-conditioner during the hot months and removing it when temperatures begin to drop.

4. Bay Windows

For those who like extra space, bay windows are the best option. You can spot these types of windows easily because of their different structure. They have angles and projections, which give your house a sophisticated look. They are usually composed of three to four windows placed side by side.

5. Slider/Sliding Windows

As the name implies, you can open or close this window by sliding it on a track. You can usually see these windows in basements or in other areas where swing-out space is limited, or where swinging windows might pose a risk to people.
