Playing Favorites: 7 Popular Window Styles

December 18, 2014

There’s nothing more comforting than having a cup of coffee on a lazy day while enjoying the gorgeous view from your double hung window in Waukesha. Whether you notice it or not, your windows bring the outdoor feel inside and allow you to connect with your home’s exterior.

A good window boosts the aesthetic of your home. There are windows that complement the architectural design of your home; you just need to be keen on choosing the right one. We’ll help you narrow down your search. Here are seven of the most popular windows today:

  1. Awning Windows

These windows open from the top and tilt outward, providing an open window space without allowing water to penetrate into your home. Because of their functionality, they are a prevalent choice for the kitchen and bathroom.

  1. Bow Windows

This option is ideal for homes with curved architecture. The style uses more glass panels than bay windows. The replacement windows in Waukesha that we offer have energy-saving benefits from our Fibrex® frames and High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass panes.

  1. Bay Windows

Bay windows have come a long way since their use in castles during the Renaissance period. Today, they are highly esteemed for the amount of light they allow inside modest homes and mansions alike.

  1. Casement Windows

This option’s popularity has spread in the UK even before the sash window was invented. Today, they are still in demand in many European countries. Long and thin, they open outwards, allowing more sunlight to flow inside your home.

  1. Double Hung Windows

This is the most widely used style today. A double hung is composed of two vertically arranged panels, which can be moved all the way up and down.

  1. Picture Windows

These windows are known for their versatility when combined with other window styles. Picture windows have large single glass panels that are mounted to your home’s exterior walls. They do not open but they make up for it with the beautiful sceneries they allow you to see.

  1. Sliding Windows

Sliding windows are a popular option for homeowners with limited space in their homes. The sliding window offered by Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee uses sleeker frames and more glass for a maximum glass surface area.

You’ll surely find something to match the existing architectural structure of your home. At Renewal by Andersen, we offer more than just top quality windows but excellent warranties too. For your window replacement needs, call us today for more information.

Hear From Our Customers

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.
