Window Types and How to Tell the Difference

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying that goes “the eyes are the windows to the soul.” Well the opposite applies for homes! Windows are the eyes of your home, and a couple of well-placed windows can change the way your house looks both inside and out and create completely different ambients. Let’s take a look at a couple window types recommended by our friends in Window Replacement Boston MA so you new homeowners know how to pick the right ones for your home.

First off, we’ve got the single hung window. These ones open vertically, using the lower window panel to slide up and down with up being open and down being closed. When the window is open, the upper window panel is covered by the lower one. These are generally the most afforable window option and range from anywhere between $170 to $360 for each window.

Double hung windows are very similar, only with these windows you can use both the upper and lower panels to open the window. This makes it a lot easier to clean your windows as you can easily move each one respectively to reach all the little nooks and crannies.

Besides these two, you’ve got arched windows, awning windows, bay windows, bow windows and much more! I know it might seem a little daunting when you’re just learning about them, but figuring out which windows will suit your home best is very worth it!
