With all of the window styles and colour combinations that are available, it can be challenging to find the right window replacements. While the decision can be a tricky one, there are two options that are very common and double-hung windows and slider windows are both very popular.
Double-hung windows are custom built and will meet your home’s exact needs. They can move up and down in their frame and are generally a perfect fit for most window openings. For these reasons, this is a very popular style and a lot of homeowners choose to go with this option. Slider windows are also popular but unlike double hung windows, these ones need to be slid from side to side across a track in order for them to open. Slider windows are ideal for wider spaces and perfect when replacing a picture window. Both styles will improve the functionality of your home, so you need to consider other factors when figuring out which option is best for you.
If you are interested in energy efficiency but want style as well, double-hung windows are a better option because they are specifically designed to make space feel more comfortable while lowering your energy bills. This style of window will work in most rooms and the best part is that there are over a thousand style and colour options available, so you will be able to find one to your liking. Whether you prefer wood or vinyl, double-hung windows will allow you to find the windows you’ve always wanted, so you will be very happy with the final results.
If you are looking for maximum ventilation, slider windows are the better option because of their unique sliding capabilities. This option is generally better for rooms with only one window because they make a statement and you will be happy with its appearance. If you need to replace the windows that are facing your backyard or garden, this is definitely the option to consider because you will receive more fresh air while enjoying an unobstructed view because of the sleek and low-profile frame this type of window provides.
If maintenance is a concern, you can consider both options because both styles are easy to clean and maintain. They both come with tilt-in and lift-out features, which allow for easy cleaning. Some slider windows do not offer this feature, so make sure you double-check this aspect if this is something that is important to you.
