Tips & Tricks for Picking Out Replacement Windows for Your Home
The exterior windows of your home give it character and help showcase your unique personality. Just as you carefully selected the paint for your home, so too will you need to decide what window replacement is right for your home. The good news is that the Starwood Distributors design experts, serving Dallas, Texas and the surrounding area, have a few tips and tricks to help you discover the ideal window types for your Texas home.
Tip #1: Decide If You Want Fixed or Operable Exterior Windows
Windows are available in a wide variety of types, shapes, and sizes. Deciding between the latter factors is made easier when you first consider your budget, the style of your home, and the window’s purpose. With this in mind, you will need to decide if you want fixed or operable exterior windows. Fixed windows do not provide ventilation, however, they do offer exposed views and are an excellent choice if you want to increase the amount of natural light in your home. As their name suggests, operable windows can be opened to increase in-home ventilation, which may be important to Dallas-area homeowners. There are also several types of operable windows, including: sliding windows, double-hung windows, casement windows, and awning windows.
Tip #2: Choosing the Right Balance of Colors, Privacy, and Glass Options
At Starwood Distributors, we believe in providing you with extensive choices, which is why we have exterior window frames that are readily available in white, tan, and clay. In addition to choosing the right color for your home, you should also consider the window’s energy efficiency levels. The good news is that we can help you select windows that are energy efficient and meet the ENERGY STAR® requirement for Texas homes.
