Window types

New windows look great and provide your home with upgraded energy efficiency. Window frames can be made of wood, vinyl, aluminum, or composite material. Color choices and glazing options abound. But for a starting point, here are some window styles to consider:

 

Detail of awning window of home

Awning

An awning window opens out and downward, usually on hinges at the top. Awning windows are often used in place of traditional casement windows because they take up less space when open and provide more ventilation. They are also easier to open and close than casement windows because there is no crank or lever to operate.

 

Bay window detail

Bay

Bay windows protrude outward from the wall of a building, forming a recess in the exterior wall. They typically are a triangular or “L” shape and are often used to provide extra space in a room or to let in more natural light. Bay windows can be either fixed or operable, usually made of wood, vinyl, or fiberglass.

 

Bow window detail

Bow

Like bays, a bow window projects out from the wall of a structure. It typically has a semicircular or curved shape and, like a bay, is often used to add space and light. Bow windows are popular because they provide an attractive way to increase the natural light in a space as well as adding visual interest.

 

Casement window detail

Casement

Casement windows are hinged on one side, typically the side that opens. This allows them to be opened like a door, providing better airflow and ventilation into the room. Casement windows are often used in bedrooms and bathrooms because they can be opened to let in fresh air without taking up much space.

 

Double-hung window detail

Single/double-hung

A single-hung window has a lower, movable sash and an upper, fixed sash. Double-hung windows have two movable sashes, one above the other, that slide up and down to open and close. Unlike one-direction single-hung windows, double-hung windows have sashes that can move independently. Single- and double-hung windows are popular because they provide air circulation and good views.

 

Door with transom windows

Transom

A transom is a window placed high on a wall, often above a door. They are narrow and typically just tall enough to admit light and are often used in combination with other windows. Transom windows can be used to provide ventilation or to admit light but keep out wind and rain.

 

Sliding window detail

Sliding

Sliding windows can be opened and closed by sliding horizontally along the tracks on which they slide. They can provide an unobstructed view while keeping the weather out. They are also easier to open and close than other types of windows, making them a popular choice for homeowners.

FAQs

Installing windows in your home is a big project to do yourself with little to no experience. It takes planning and the right tools, plus some muscle and a lot of precision. That’s because you’re dealing with exact measurements for a specific opening…if anything is off, the windows won’t function properly or provide peak protection from the elements. It’s more practical for a professional to install windows, and Gunner will install them quickly and correctly.

Cost, like that of roofing or siding, is dependent on the size and type of window (single-hung, casement, bay or bow, etc.) being replaced. Generally, replacement windows can range from a few hundred dollars to several thousand. To get a better idea of what it would cost for your specific needs, contact us for a free and accurate estimate.

Essentially, the frame material (wood or metal) needs to be cut to size to fit snugly in the opening, along with drill holes to secure the frame with screws or nails. Also, the frame needs to have a groove routed for the glass installation at the end. That’s in simple terms, but it’s tricky. You’re better served to have a frame professionally done, and Gunner can make that easy for you. Sometimes that’s all that’s needed to bring your windows up to standard.

Yes, we recommend to do that if your timing and budget allow. This means the best possible flashing and water infiltration protection, a completely new airtight seal on your exterior. Our siding crews wrap the windows so that they properly tie into the vapor barrier on your home.

Windows typically last 15 to 20 years, depending on factors such as weather and the quality of initial installation. Unfortunately, we sometimes see windows that were not installed correctly, which can cause their lifespan to be needlessly shortened. You can count on Gunner to install your windows with airtight precision.

Some of the signs include noticing your windows are drafty when you’re nearby; the glass is foggy, cloudy, or cracked; they’re increasingly difficult to open or close; or the frames are rotting. All of these things mean your windows are inefficient and probably costing you money through higher energy bills. There are other factors that it’s time for change, so if you’re unsure, call us.

You bet. We not only replace windows, but frame them out as well. We know how unsatisfying it can be to imagine that beautiful view you could have, but there is a wall in the way! We can help you choose a window to make your vision come true.
