Window replacement is the most popular home improvement project to improve a home’s energy efficiency. Each window replacement and installation job comes with its own unique set of circumstances. You may need a window that will maximize your view of the garden. Or one that will help maintain a room’s privacy from a busy street. You may also have a hard-to-reach or tricky installation area.
Windows come in a variety of shapes and sizes to meet every homeowner’s specifications. There are large picture windows that create unobstructed views, casement windows that open fully for maximum light and ventilation, hopper windows that are ideal in basements, and awning windows that fit in nicely above doors or larger windows. There is a window for every room and every need. In addition, window frames come in a range of materials that vary in strength, appearance, efficiency, and price.
The articles below summarize the different types of windows and window frames you can choose from. You can also learn about the various brands available, such as Andersen, Jeld-Wen and Marvin. If you have more questions about window styles, frames, and brands, or are ready for a free installation estimate, contact one of CalFinder’s certified window contractors.
