Single or Double-Hung Windows
Found in homes across the nation and the world, single and double-hung windows are extremely popular for their many benefits. For starters, they open vertically, allowing for easy, accessible ventilation. In addition to this, they can be much easier to clean than other window types. Lastly, single or double-hung windows are accessible in every sense of the word, as they are offered by most contractors nationwide, and thus, you shouldn’t encounter many issues replacing or repairing them.
Though much less practical than single or double-hung, bay windows are an excellent addition to virtually any home. Bay windows deliver when it comes to providing a pure, aesthetically pleasing view of the outdoors, though for this reason, they do not provide the same airflow and ventilation as the aforementioned styles of windows.
As the name would suggest, sliding windows are distinguished by their ability to slide horizontally, which allows for great ease of use and ventilation. Lower in price than many of its counterparts – including bay windows – sliding windows are an excellent value for homeowners.
