Which Window Style Makes Sense in Your Home?

Shopping for windows can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to dissecting what type of window makes sense in your home.  Terms like “casement” and “double hung” are all terms we’ve heard but may be unsure of what exactly they mean.  Simplify the shopping process by understanding these terms.  Below, we’ll give you the 411 on major window styles, all available in Lindus Construction’s SeasonGuard window line.

Awning:

By Definition: Hinged at the top, they open outward and leave a small area beneath both sides of the glass.

Ideal For: Bathrooms & kitchens because they can allow odors to quickly escape.

Perks of SeasonGuard Awning Windows: Awning windows which have one of the industry’s lowest air infiltration rates, because they feature three continuous seals of weatherstripping.Awning Window

Bay:

By Definition: Room with a view?  Likely you’ve got bay windows to thank.  They typically consist of one larger window that does not open and a smaller one on each side that can.

Ideal For: Living rooms but can be used to showcase a view in dining & bedrooms as well.

Perks of SeasonGuard Bay Windows: An anti-water penetration system helps protect against unwanted water and moisture damage. This system protects your most precious investment—your home.bay

Bow:

By Definition: Similar to bay windows, bow windows provide a panoramic view.  They have anywhere from 3 to 6 sections divided by wood or laminate.

Ideal For: Living Rooms, Kitchens, Dining Rooms & Bedrooms.

Perks of SeasonGuard Bow Windows: Specifically designed to protect your home from excess moisture and the damage it causes.

Casement:

By Definition: They can be hung in pairs or solo.  Casement windows are operated by cranks that swing them outward and provide great air circulation.

Ideal For: Casement windows are great for bathrooms & kitchens where air sometimes needs to be circulated quickly.  They also work well in attics where window openings may be more difficult to reach.

Perks of SeasonGuard Casement Windows: Utilizing three continuous seals of weather stripping, SeasonGuard casement windows have some of the industry’s lowest air filtration rates.  Plus, they are easily operated and have functional hardware which makes cleaning a breeze.

Double Hung:

By Definition: A double hung window looks like two small windows stacked on top of each other vertically; they are the most popular style in today’s homes.

Ideal For: Bedrooms, bathrooms, sunrooms and utility rooms.

Perks of Double Hung SeasonGuard Windows: Minimal maintenance and easy operation with tilt-in feature.  Recessed pick resistant locks offer the best in security.

Garden:

By Definition: A garden window gets its name because it imitates the symmetry of a greenhouse.  It extends out from the side of your home.

Ideal For: Kitchens & Sunrooms.  They offer you a place to showcase your houseplants or tchotchkes.

Perks of SeasonGuard Garden Windows: The adjustable height glass shelf is standard.  The handle is easy to reach and both trapezoids are fully operational which offers worry-free ventilation.garden window

Sliding:

By Definition: Just as the name implies, a sliding window shifts open along a track.

Ideal For: Living rooms, walk-out basement, bedrooms & above kitchen sinks.

Perks of SeasonGuard Sliding Windows: The signature narrow line window design allows for a maximum glass viewing area.

Custom Window Installation Reviews:

"We worked with Lindus to replace our old windows in our home. They came out and looked at what we currently had and discussed our options with us. We purchased six Marvin windows and we could not be happier with the quality of the windows and the install/finishing. It's a huge impact and we are so happy we chose to work with Lindus! Matt was always very responsive whenever I emailed or called him and kept us in the loop about when we should expect our windows. We are very happy customers."

"Lindus Construction was selected to replace six windows in my home. The crew arrived on schedule and performed the installation in two days. The workers did a great job and were very careful in cleanup and avoiding the tracking of snow into my living space. The work was carried out in a very professional manner. I would not hesitate to recommend the company to others."
