Your windows are one of your home’s most important features. They have a big impact on your property’s curb appeal, and also affect the energy efficiency in your home. There are several reasons for this. The quality of your windows will help prevent energy from leaking in or out through drafts. The amount of natural light you have in your home affects how much artificial light you need. With new windows, you could reduce your energy need overall. With that in mind, if your existing windows begin to show wear and tear or are no longer working as they should, it might be time to consider having new windows installed.
Installing Replacement Windows
The following are some key points you’ll want to take into consideration when choosing new replacement windows for your home:
Choosing windows based on energy efficiency is smart. You want to select windows that are built using quality insulation with glass rated by Energy Star to ensure high energy efficiency.
Durability matters. Replacing your windows will be an investment. It isn’t wise to go for the cheapest option because it’s important to have windows built with high-quality materials. Doing so should help them last a long time. If they aren’t durable, they will wear and tear more quickly, which can change their efficiency and lessen the security, safety, and function.
Security is important. Any window that can be opened needs to have a high-quality locking mechanism that is easy to use and will help to keep your home safe and secure.
They need to be easy to open and close. If you’re planning to buy windows that can open (whether up and down or side to side), make sure the style you choose is easy for you and your family members to operate.
They should fit your home’s overall design. Choose replacement windows that complement your home’s existing style. A well-thought-out design plan for integrating new windows into your current home’s design will enhance your curb appeal.
ARMORVUE Replacement Windows
Our windows are built using high-quality foam core insulating materials and Energy Star labeled glass to provide a high level of energy efficiency. We carry two main lines of windows: our Platinum Series windows and our Gold Series windows. We also offer a wide range of different types of windows that can be customized in a variety of ways to fit your needs and design style. Here at ARMORVUE we offer the following types of replacement windows:
Double-hung windows are a traditional style featuring two sashes. Our double-hung windows have operating sashes that allow you to open both the top and the bottom parts of the window independently. They also feature tilt-in sashes, which make the exterior surface of the window incredibly easy to clean.
Casement windows are attached to the side of the window frame and swing open. Awning windows are similar to casement windows, only they are hinged at the top and open outward from the bottom instead of hinged on the side of the frame. Awning windows are often installed higher up on walls to provide privacy or above other types of windows to help improve the view and airflow. Both are known for their ease in functionality and are a great choice for any home.
Slider windows are popular because they provide an unobstructed view of the outside and are easier to open than double-hung windows since they slide open and don’t have to be lifted open. Our slider windows are unique in that they have all the benefits of a typical slider window but feature swing-in sashes to make cleaning easier.
Bow windows are often used in living spaces, but can also be wrapped around the corner of a building. Bay windows are similar to bow windows but usually only consist of three windows — a static central window and two smaller windows on each side. Bay windows tend to reach out a little farther from the wall than a bow window as well. Both window styles bring in an abundance of natural light and offer a great panoramic view.
Contrary to what you may think based on their size, picture windows actually can be very energy efficient. Picture windows are a great source of natural light inside, and they make a huge positive impact on a home’s curb appeal.
Shaped windows are so versatile and can be customized to fit any room, any shape, and any design style.
Basement hopper windows are a great choice for those dark corners of a basement, but they are also great for other rooms in the house that benefit from some natural light and ventilation like laundry rooms and bathrooms. Thanks to their small size, small operational footprint, and ease in function, they are a great addition to any home.
Glass block windows have come a long way since the days of glass block walls. These days they can be set in a window frame which gives them new life as a modern touch to any space in your home that requires a high level of privacy. With new advances in the design of these windows, we can even add a vent allowing for the privacy and ventilation you’re looking for.
