One of the great things about living in Windsor is the wide variety of home styles. There are older homes that feature very classic designs and elements, and newer homes that are ultra-modern and feature clean, crisp lines and design features.
For the older styles of homes in the area, choosing replacement windows that match the lines of the house is important. It can look out of place to try to fit the ultra-modern styles of windows in a classic home, just as the reverse would be true if replacing windows in modern home design.
Classic Options in Single and Double Hung Windows
Single and double hung replacement windows are always a classic option. Single hung windows have two sections, a bottom, and a top, with the bottom half of the window sliding up and down to open and close the window.
Double hung windows have the same two sections, but either the upper or lower section can be raised or lowered, to let in the breeze. Both are very traditional windows styles. They can be used in any room of the home and come in a range of sizes.
Casement windows are another very versatile and practical option in replacement windows for these homes. The windows push open from one side similar to how a door is opened and closed. Casement windows are practical and, with the window pushing out, they are effective at catching a breeze in a way a traditional sliding window does not.
The final option in a more traditional type of window in any Windsor home is an awning window. These are hinged at the top and open at the bottom, and they are typically rectangular . These windows are commonly used in kitchens and bathrooms, but they are also ideal for bedrooms and living areas. They tend to keep debris like falling leaves or even rain from coming into the home, even if the window is fully open.
