Wood Replacement Windows
Arts & Crafts Style
Sometimes called Craftsman, this type of home style is a beautiful, craftsmanship-heavy style. You are sure to see features such:
- Art glass, which creates a distinct look and feel
- Grills located in the upper sash of the windows
- In color, the windows and siding tend to have a similar tone, and the window trim contrasts it
- Large glass, as well as single glass openings, are common throughout.
The windows on a Colonial can offer a range of styles. However, there are some core components to expect, such as:
- Clapboard siding and shutters tend to set off the look of the home
- Dormers and divided light double hung windows are the most common style
- Windows tend to be white or light gray with contrasting window trim to help them stand out
- Window trim that’s wide and flat adds decorative features
Cottage Farmhouse Style
Quite the traditional look, this style keeps things simple and relaxed – creating a bit of a feeling of an older, classic home. Key features include:
- Double hung windows tend to be taller and narrow
- Grilles are often present to add a bit of design element
- Most common colors for window and trim include white and green, but other options exist
- The window trim is about 4 ½ inches
The windows for a modern style home typically have very clean and straight lines. They tend to have a more simplistic style and form to them and features such as:
- 2-inch brick molding around the windows tends to be common (and it can include some minimal highlight color to add a bit of a shadow line to the look)
- Expanses of glass work to expand the interior space feel and allow light to come in
- These homes also tend to have awnings and casements for their overall design
Ranch homes offer a contemporary feel but exteriors can offer a wide range of styles for homeowners to choose from. Expect exteriors that are traditional in overall look. Features include:
- Plated-glass windows (or ribbon style) are common in these homes
- Windows tend to feature a divided light look, which helps to add more aesthetics to the space
- It’s common to have double hung windows present, but casement and awning are also styles that are used, sometimes in combination with each other
- Trim can range from 3 ½ inches to 2 inches wide brick molding for an impressive look.
Step 1- THOROUGH INSPECTION
The first thing that needs to happen is a complete evaluation of the current problems that you, the homeowner, are trying to solve with your new replacement windows. Are you trying to eliminate drafts or leaks? Do you want to reduce your energy bills? Are you looking for a simple cosmetic replacement? Etc.
It is important that you and the company that you hire to replace your windows are both on the same page as to what you want to accomplish with your new replacement windows. You want to avoid the all-too-common pitfall of a homeowner spending thousands of dollars on replacement windows, only to end up with the exact same problem that they had before replacing the windows.
The fact of the matter is that you may not even need new windows!
A thorough inspection will reveal the true cause of the problem that you are trying to fix.
Once a thorough examination has been completed, then it’s time to move to the next logical step.
STEP 2 - RECOMMENDATIONS:
Now that you and the company that you are considering for your replacement windows have a complete understanding of exactly what needs to be accomplished, you can start discussing options.
It is imperative to understand that there really isn’t a “best window.” The reason for this is that all reputable window manufacturers have a long-standing record of quality production. They all have warranties on their product. And they all have windows certified through AAMA (American Architectural Manufacturers Association— the original third-party window performance program that has provided manufacturers with the means to independently demonstrate product performance to their customers). A window that has AAMA certification will perform as stated.
However, a critical component to consider is the proper installation of the windows. The most expensive window in the market place, if not installed properly, will fail prematurely.
