Are you thinking about remodeling your home? Or have you considered replacing your windows? Before beginning window replacement in Kansas City, it is essential that you understand the basics of how windows work, what kinds of windows are available, and what the advantages and disadvantages are of the different kinds of windows. This knowledge will help you make the best decision possible as you replace or install new windows.
Windows are surprisingly more than meets the eye. Even though we look through windows every day, most of us never notice the design or technology applied in their construction.
A double-hung window is one sliding window consisting of two sections (each called a “sash”) that can both be slid either up and down or left and right (depending on the direction in which the window was hung).
A single hung window is one sliding window consisting of two sections, but only one section, or sash, can be slid either up and down or left and right. The other of the two sections is fixed and does not move.
A casement window is a window consisting of one or two sections that can be opened outward, most often using a crank.
A stationary window is a simple style of window that does not open. The glass, or windowpane, is fixed permanently into the window frame.
A windowpane refers to an individual piece of glass in the window. A single window (or sash) may have one, two, or three panes of glass sandwiched together. This is referred to as a single, double, or triple glazed window. Unless you examine the window carefully, you may not notice if the window is single, double, or triple glazed.
If you are embarking upon a remodel or attempting to make your home more energy-efficient (or both!), replacing your windows can be very helpful toward achieving your project goals. Kansas City single hung windows or double-hung windows are two of the most popular styles of windows you can choose.
