At American Custom Exteriors & Interiors, we understand the importance of choosing the right replacement windows for your home. Not only do they enhance the aesthetic of your home, but they significantly impact your energy costs. That's why we recommend high-quality, visually appealing, and energy-efficient window solutions that will benefit you in the long term. By choosing the right replacement windows, you can enjoy lower energy bills, improved comfortability, and an elevated home ambiance. Our expertise in the field has led us to recommend six popular replacement window options that combine beauty with performance:
Bay and Bow Windows
These are large windows that extend outward and let in plenty of natural light. Bay windows have an angular shape, while bow windows have a softer curved shape. Both work well for “letting the outdoors in” and are ideal for scenic locations.
Projected Frame Windows
If you’re looking for highly customizable replacement windows that can fit into almost any space, projected frame windows are a great option. And with a “projecting” design that extends outward, they allow for plenty of ventilation.
Casement windows have a hinge on one side that swings outward for easy opening and closing. They also offer excellent ventilation and have a simple, classic look that can enhance the beauty of any room.
Double Hung Windows
Double hung windows are what most people would consider “traditional windows.” They consist of two, vertically sliding panels that can be conveniently moved up and down for flexible ventilation control. And the products we offer at American Custom Exterior & Interior also have a tilt-in feature for simple cleaning.
Awning windows are smaller windows that tilt outward from the bottom, providing natural light along with excellent ventilation even when it’s raining. The smaller size and unique design of awning windows allow them to be installed in a variety of locations, including higher up in walls, making them perfect for letting in light and airflow while maintaining privacy.
As the name suggests, these windows slide open and close horizontally, which makes for ultra-simple functionality. If you’re looking to “open a room up” with a larger window with easy-to-adjust ventilation control, sliding windows are a great choice. Also, like double hung windows, these include a tilt-in feature for easy cleaning.
