New Egress Windows Installation
A new window installation calls for the help of professionals who can adequately measure and create a window that fits perfectly into the allocated space. If you’re not the contractor-type yourself, leave the heavy lifting to the window contractor who knows best practices. New window installations are a great way to add more natural sunlight and color to a room in your home and can help brighten up space. More windows and natural light can also help reduce your electricity bills, as you likely won’t need to use as much electrical lighting with improved windows.
Types of Windows
There are various types of windows to choose from when venturing out to install a new one. Some of the most common types of windows include single hung windows, double hung windows, bay windows, bow windows, awning windows, and tilt turn windows. Each is built and installed using different techniques that enhance their ability as functioning windows. If you’re not sure what type of window would work best for you, you can sit down with one of our professionals to go over the potential options.
Benefits of Each Type
The benefits of each type of window vary and can depend on numerous factors such as the shape of your house, your budget, and in which way the window is facing. For windows that are double hung, for example, they can provide more insulation and protection from damage, while awning windows can bring in more sunlight to a higher, darkened room, such as bedrooms or attics. Tilt turn windows can be easier to open and reduce noise while bay and bow windows can add more natural light to a jutted part of the home.
The installation of new windows takes time in to build the frame, measure the space, and fit the window to the area allocated. If a window has not been fitted to the space, it will not produce the same benefits than if it had and could potentially scratch or ruin existing wall paint or wallpaper. During installation, we prep the area that will be worked on by protecting the wall and surrounding floors. Once completed, we fit your window into place and secure it using building materials. It is then tested from the inside and the outside, to ensure it is both sturdy and functional. We find it best to install new windows in daylight, so that we’re able to see just how much sun actually reaches the window and if it improves the brightness of your room.
