What Window Style is Right for your Home?

Each window style and brand have different features, design, and functionality making them unique. Talk to us about where your window replacement needs are, as one style may work better than another. This may depend on design, home style, energy efficiency, and more.

Types of Windows

Here are the main types of window styles which include:

  • Awning Windows
  • Bay Windows
  • Bow Windows
  • Casement Windows
  • Double Slider Windows
  • Single Hung Windows
  • Double Hung Windows
  • Picture Windows

Awning Windows

An awning window, sometimes also called a project-out window, is a top-hinged style window outward opening window providing maximum airflow and ventilation. They sit horizontally and are usually installed above or below stationary windows. Awning windows are a versatile option and commonly used in basements.

Bay Windows

Bay windows feature panels using several angles, to create an alcove. They are a perfect option for rooms that bring in natural light such as the dining room, living room, or bedroom. Bay Windows can add curb appeal and value as they instantly become a focal point and point of interest.

Bow Windows

Bow windows, much like bay windows, are made up of four or more panels, creating a curved semi-circular shape. This option is flexible in terms of size, shape, and functionality and can provide an elegant and expansive view, not to mention an increased curb appeal.

Casement Windows

These windows are the most popular style of window. Casement windows are hinged at the side and crank to the outside, providing a sophisticated yet practical style to your home. This window style is typically installed in the kitchen as they are easy to open and close as well as provides maximum airflow and ventilation.

Single Slider Windows

Single slider windows are a more simplified version of the double slider as you slide the windows horizontally to open and close. These windows are a cost-effective solution, highly secure, and easy to clean and maintain making these windows a practical option for many homeowners.

Double Slider Windows

These windows are common in most homes as they are easy to use and open both sides of the window allowing increased airflow into the home. Double slider windows are also low maintenance, simple to use, and easy to clean.

Single Hung Windows

Another common window style is single-hung windows. These windows are ideal for patios, sunrooms, or any other room in your home. They are versatile, simple to use, and typically have a traditional style sash for enhanced security. These windows come in a variety of styles, with a sleek and contemporary style, and are popular as they are low in maintenance.

Double Hung Windows

Double-hung windows are a classic style with amazing installation to help you save money on energy bills by keeping warmth inside. They typically have a full screen and two operable sashes to allow the window to move up and down. These windows provide functionality yet are very practical making them also a very popular style for most homes.  These windows are ideal in smaller rooms, are easy to clean and maintain, and come in a variety of styles.

Picture Windows

Picture windows, also known as fixed windows, are great for large openings that do not require a window to open, but rather enjoy expansive views from inside and outside of the home. These windows bring daylight into homes and are an excellent choice for framing views where ventilation is not a concern. Picture windows come in all styles, sizes, and shapes making them perfect and essential for architectural design.

Fall is a Great Time to Replace your Windows

The fall equinox begins this Thursday, September 22, 2022, so summer is done, and cooler weather is on the way. Now is a great time to make sure your house doesn’t have any leaks or feel any cool breezes in your home by getting your windows replaced!

Here are a couple of reasons why fall is the best time to get your windows replaced.

Energy Savings

Start saving money now on your energy bills before the cooler winter comes. Windows are some of the worst offenders allowing warm air to leak, and costing you more money to keep your house warm and cozy. Getting a head start on making sure you’re home is well-insulated and as energy-efficient as possible is a great way to eliminate headaches and high energy bills.

Weather & Timing

Although in Colorado we sometimes have the occasional snowstorm in the fall, for the most part, temperatures are just right for installation and sealing. Not too hot, and not too cold, giving homeowners a perfect opportunity to replace worn-out old windows with new energy-efficient windows. Installing new windows at fall temperatures also allows for the best adhesion to seal your new windows.

Flexible Scheduling & Installation

As summer projects start to slow down, our company starts to have greater availability. We can provide faster scheduling and installation to fit your needs.

Curb Appeal

Your neighbors, family, and friends will love the curb appeal of your new updated, energy-efficient windows will give your home. Your new windows will give you that amazing view of the changing colors, and falling leaves, and protect you from the rain, snow, dust, and pollen that can come with the fall season.

Discounts, Financing & Tax Rebates!

Common Window Replacement Mistakes

Installing replacement windows is one of those home projects where you will want to call professionals to install your windows. The team at New Windows for America is the only professional team you should trust as Denver’s window replacement experts where we will work to complete each job right every time, and help you choose the right window for your home.

If you want to end up with an energy-efficient, smooth operating, and long-lasting window, every step of the installation process needs to be executed with the greatest attention to detail.

Here are some of the most common window replacement mistakes and some useful tips that will help you avoid them.

Basing Window Choice on Price

Window prices vary depending on style, size, and brand. New Windows for America will help you choose a window based on your budget, as well as the right fit for your home.

Incorrect Measurements

It is very important to install the correct size replacement window. When measuring for new windows we must always account for settling out of square and the condition of the substrate. New windows are typically a deeper window so we must account for the extra depth by cutting drywall back or adding new trim boards. Our replacement windows are custom-made to the 1/8” to ensure proper fit and installation.

Rely on the experts at New Windows for America to take exact measurements for the best fitting window for your home.

Flashings and Proper Installation

Replacement windows should be installed in the same footprint as existing windows, utilizing the existing drip cap flashing if possible. If the existing drip cap flashing cannot be utilized then a new drip cap must be installed. Typically, replacement windows are a block retrofit type installation. With this type of manufacture-approved installation, the existing window can be removed, and the new window installed without damaging the interior or exterior trims and finishes. Before installing the new window, we must clean the opening of all dust and debris and install a self-adhered flashing sill pan.

If you aren’t sure what to look for, our professional installers at New Windows for America can help. We will ensure that the window opening is adequately prepared and measured before placing your new window.

The New Windows for America team will only recommend the right replacement windows for your home and will help you select the appropriate installation materials to keep the window securely in place.

Using the wrong spray foam

Filling the cavity around the entire perimeter of the window with expanding spray foam could prevent unwelcome water from escaping back to the outdoors. Also, dispensing too much foam or the use of high-expanding foam could bow wood jams or even distort a window frame.

Not following manufacturer instructions

While all windows share similar installation procedures, most of them have unique requirements based on extensive laboratory and field testing.

Upon installation, we will provide you with instructions and best practices from the window manufacturer.  Following the instructions will also prevent voiding the warranty.

Not reading reviews before you hire a contractor

Reading reviews is one of the most important things you can do prior to meeting with a company. Search reviews on Google, Angi, Yelp, or a similar website to see what other consumers are saying about their experience with the companies you are interviewing.

New Windows for America has numerous 5-star reviews, you can read through them here.

Not understanding lead times before ordering

Lead time is an estimated time from when the order is placed to when the product is delivered to the destination.

We will be in constant communication with you on when the windows will be ordered, delivered, and installed so that you will have clear expectations and can plan accordingly.

5 Things to Know About Denver Window Replacement

Denver Window Replacement

There comes a time when every homeowner or property manager has to consider Denver window replacement. Either because an existing window has been broken or worn or just because it’s time for something different. At New Windows for America, we regularly hear from new customers throughout the Rocky Mountain region who need new windows but don’t know where to start.

The great thing about window replacement is that the right purchase can last for many, many years to come. The downside to that, of course, is that a lot of homeowners and buyers can feel like they’re replacing windows for the first time, even if they’ve been through the process before.

Besides, windows (as with just about everything else in our lives) have changed and evolved a great deal over the past few decades. That means there are plenty of things to know and consider as you look through your options.

To help make those decisions easier, here are five things to know about Denver window replacement:

  1. Denver window replacement can give your home a fresh look. Whether you’re renovating your home, just freshening up your interior design, or want to get rid of some existing older windows, installing new ones can give your home a brighter, cleaner look.
  2. The right windows can be a breath of fresh air. Many Denver homeowners never open their windows because of the hassles involved. Being able to let a bit of fresh air in makes your home more livable, can improve air quality, and can even help you save on heating and cooling costs.
  3. Getting the right windows can have a big effect on energy costs. Speaking of energy, did you know that newer windows help with both heating and cooling, potentially saving you hundreds of dollars every year? You might be amazed at the difference window replacement can make in your energy bills.
  4. Replacing old windows can cut down on your workload. Often, older windows are difficult to access or clean, meaning you’re faced with the choice of spending more time on them or letting them become dirty and unappealing. With the right set of replacement windows, you don’t have those problems.
  5. It pays to hire the right Denver window replacement installation team. As tempting as it might be to simply choose the cheapest set of windows you can find, you will save more time and be a lot happier, over the long run, if you find the right Denver window replacement team like New Windows for America to assist you.
