Types of Replacement Windows
Single/Double Hung Windows
Single-hung and double-hung windows are very similar to each other; with just one major exception. Both sashes on double-hung windows are operable, meaning they both move up and down. On single-hung windows, however, the top sash is fixed in place while only the bottom sash remains operable. The benefit of having a double-hung window, rather than a single-hung, is that it is easier to clean and maintain.
Picture windows are fixed windows that do not open. They are usually installed in places that are difficult to reach, where ventilation is not a concern. Picture windows are often used to let in light or reduce drafts in areas of a room that may be prone to it. They can be used alone, or combined with other windows, to create a portrait-like space on the wall – hence the word “picture” in their name.
Awning windows open from the bottom and swing upward via a crank. Hopper windows open from the top and swing inward. They are primarily used in basement applications.
A sliding window is a window that opens by sliding the panes on a track in the frame. It’s a good choice when the size of the window is much wider than it is tall. These windows are available in a single slider with one moveable sash, a 2-lite slider where both sashes move, and a 3-lite slider for large openings. 3-lite slider windows have a fixed picture window in the center with operable window sliders on each end.
Casement windows are hinged on one side and open with a crank handle on the other. This handle is used to swing the window open, away from your home and towards the outside. Casement windows also provide maximum ventilation.
Bow / Bay Windows
Bow and bay windows are popular architectural features that add a touch of elegance and charm to both traditional and modern homes. Bow windows are characterized by a gentle curve, consisting of multiple glass panels that project outward from the building’s facade, creating a graceful and sweeping effect. On the other hand, bay windows typically consist of three windows angled outward, with a larger central window flanked by two smaller ones.
VELUX skylights are an energy-efficient way to bring sunlight into a room and make dark areas come to life. With this in mind, they have a few specific advantages over other kinds of windows. VELUX skylights bring natural light into your home while still allowing you to maintain your privacy. VELUX skylights are a beautiful addition that enhances both the character and beauty of any room. On top of this, a skylight will also increase the resale value of your home because it is more appealing than a standard window.
How Do I Know It's Time To Replace My Windows
Your windows may be leaking, fogging, or difficult to open. They could just be worn out. However, there are other reasons to replace your windows. Here are some of the common benefits and reasons for replacing old windows.
Energy efficiency: One of the primary reasons people opt for replacement windows is to improve energy efficiency. Older windows can be a significant source of energy loss due to drafts, leaks, and poor insulation. Replacement windows are designed with modern technology that includes features like multiple panes, low-emissivity (low-E) glass coatings, and insulating frames, all of which help to reduce heat transfer and improve energy efficiency. This can lead to lower heating and cooling costs and a more comfortable home environment.
Enhanced comfort: In addition to energy efficiency, replacement windows can contribute to improved comfort within your home. They can help regulate indoor temperatures, reduce drafts, and minimize outside noise infiltration. These factors can make your living spaces more comfortable throughout the year.
Increased home value: Replacement windows can enhance the aesthetic appeal of your home, both from the inside and outside. They can significantly improve curb appeal, which can positively impact your home’s value. If you plan to sell your home in the future, high-quality replacement windows can be a selling point for potential buyers.
Noise reduction: If you live in a noisy area, such as near a busy road or in an urban environment, replacement windows with soundproofing features can help reduce the amount of outside noise that enters your home. This can create a quieter and more peaceful living environment.
Ease of maintenance: Older windows often require regular maintenance, such as scraping, painting, and caulking. Replacement windows, particularly those made from low-maintenance materials like vinyl or fiberglass, are designed to be durable and require minimal upkeep. They typically do not require painting and can be cleaned easily with simple household cleaners.
Improved functionality and security: Replacement windows often come with updated features that enhance functionality and security. These may include advanced locking mechanisms, easy-to-operate opening and closing mechanisms, and improved ventilation options. These features can make your windows more user-friendly and provide peace of mind regarding home security.
Resolving window issues: If you’re experiencing specific problems with your existing windows, such as condensation between panes, difficulty opening or closing, or water leaks, replacement windows can solve these issues and provide a long-lasting solution.
How Much Does it Cost To Replace Windows?
Replacement windows are an excellent way to boost your home’s value. However, they can be quite costly, so you should know how much they cost before you start looking for them.
If you want to know how much replacing your windows will cost, you should contact a reputable window installation company and request an estimate. They’ll be able to tell you what replacement windows cost in your area.
The cost of window installation varies depending on the type of window you want, the size and location of your home, and the labor costs for installation. For the windows themselves, consider these factors:
- The size and number of windows that need replacement
- The type (single or double pane)
- The style (casement or awning)
Consider the Cost Saving Benefits
New home windows can save you a lot of money. On top of their extensive warranties, windows that are filled with argon gas can help lower your energy bills. This is because the argon gas that’s trapped between the inner and outer window panes is an incredibly efficient insulator. Capable of blocking the transfer of heat and cold, it will help you maintain the temperature inside of your home.
When you’re buying windows, make sure that they are Energy Star approved. You may be eligible for certain tax-saving government incentives depending on the type of window you install and whether it is Energy Star certified.

On average, the replacement of a single window can typically take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours.
However, for larger projects involving multiple windows or more intricate installations, it may take a full day or even longer. Contact us to get a more accurate estimate based on your specific circumstances.
