Homeowners are often confused about which type of windows will work well for their homes. That is why the professionals at All Weather Seal of West Michigan thought it would be helpful to explain some of our top-rated window’s usability options. Whether you get your windows from our team with decades
of experience or somewhere else, it is important to know exactly what you are signing up for with each window. Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
Double-hung windows are a fan favorite because they are the easiest windows on the market to clean. Standard double-hung windows operate with the top and lower panes moving up and down to provide air flow from either direction. However, you should always ask if your next set of new windows comes with the inward-tilting capability. This option allows for you to clean both the top pane and the bottom pane from inside your home.
There is one minor con to this window’s operation. Double-Hung windows could potentially be tricky to clean if you have any issues lifting and lowering your arms to clean or casually adjust the window.
Sliding windows can be a great option for individuals who would rather push and pull their windows instead of lifting and lowering them. You can get a sliding window where only one side moves from left to right, or you can get a window with two panes that can move either way. Simply pick what works best for you and your home!
When it comes to cleaning the interior of these windows are pretty simple to clean, however the exterior windows may require you to have great balance and a tall ladder or require you to hire a window cleaning company.
Casement windows offer their own unique sets of useability. These windows open left and right from a manual-crank that is on the inside of your home attached to your window. If the idea of cranking open your windows is exciting for you this is the perfect option for your home.
Like sliding windows these windows will need to be cleaned both from the interior and exterior of your home. Call a professional or spend a day cleaning your windows with a ladder and a hose.
