Spring is the best time to bring out a fresh side to your home. It’s not only symbolic—this season actually presents the most ideal working conditions for working outdoors. Make the most of the pleasant weather by scheduling your window projects this season.
Replacing your windows is one of the exterior projects that give the best value for your money. According to Remodeling magazine, a midpriced window replacement in the East North Central region this year can recoup up to 74.3% of your investment. This high ROI can be attributed to a window’s ability to transform the way your home looks from outside. If you want to boost appeal and add value to your home, installing stylish replacements is your best bet.
The challenge is finding the style, color, and material that suits your home best. The right choice might just freshen up your drab exteriors. Here are our fresh recommendations:
Casement Windows: Simple and Breezy
Style meets function in this simple yet high-performing window design. Casements open like normal doors in Wisconsin do: with an outward swing. Among window types, they provide the most ventilation. They feature easily reachable hand cranks that let you catch and control the fresh air that enters a room.
Many modern models feature leaner frames and a bigger viewing area for maximum visual appeal. French casements are a popular variation. They comprise two side-hinged units installed inside a single French frame. They look best with classic-themed architecture but can also be styled for contemporary exteriors. Casements, in general, also come in a wide range of stylish frame colors that can give your home a much-needed visual boost.
Casements are often regarded as the most energy-efficient window design. Capitalize on this by opting for high-performing framing material and glass packages. Renewal by Andersen®, an expert in replacement windows, makes units out of the composite framing material Fibrex® and low-emissivity glass options. This combination can help you lower your energy spending significantly.
