Space: An Important Factor When Choosing WindowsJanuary 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.
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.
