Space: An Important Factor When Choosing Windows

Space: An Important Factor When Choosing Windows

January 02, 2019

Your choice of replacement windows depends on the current setup in both the interior and exterior of your home. Certain factors must be taken into consideration to fit your needs. One of these involves the amount of space that you have at home.

Space: An Important Factor When Choosing Windows

Renewal by Andersen® – Milwaukee, your local windows contractor, takes a look at this aspect and how it affects your choice of window style.

Smooth Operation Is Key

One of the main reasons space is deemed an important factor in selecting windows pertains to how they operate. Ensuring smooth operation is always key to the units’ overall function, and the way they take up space helps you determine the type of opening method that works best for the current space you have.

A Case for Double-Hung and Sliding Windows

When you have limited space in an area of your home where your new units will be installed, consider either double-hung or sliding windows. These two are the best window styles for stuffy and cramped rooms, where you don’t have to worry about swinging the sashes open. That’s because they slide on a track—double-hung windows move vertically while sliding windows move horizontally.

The way these windows operate gives them their space-saving qualities, allowing you to install them in areas around your home where people walk or hang out. These include corridors, decks, patios and staircases.

A Case for Casement Windows

This window style is for you if you have a bigger space in your home. Known for providing the best in ventilation, casement windows have side-mounted hinges that allow you to adjust the sashes accordingly. As long as the area where you will install them doesn’t have that much traffic, you are free to open them fully to bring in fresh air or at an angle to catch side breezes.

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.
