Window Replacement: Which Types Of Windows Are Right For You

Not only do replacement windows better seal your home for increased energy efficiency-helping keep your energy bill in check and creating a more comfortable home for you-they also boost your home's resale value and curb appeal.

Beyond environmental and economic benefits, there's a wide range of replacement window options to fit every home and every lifestyle. No matter what your architectural tastes are, there's a window that fits your liking, as well as your needs.

Types of Windows

There are plenty of design options to choose from when you have your windows custom made for your home. Here's a look at some of the styles that Champion offers, each custom designed, built, and installed to suit your preference.

A Beautiful Home Is More Than Just Good Looks

Double-hung windows: These are probably the most common window today. They're popular because you can open both sashes for ventilation-and both tilt in for easy cleaning.

Double-Hung Window

Casement windows: These windows are easy to operate. They're very popular for vertically oriented window openings, and they combine beautifully with picture, bay or bow windows. Casement windows should open enough for access to both sides, which means you can clean them easily from inside your home.

Slider windows: This style is very popular for smaller, horizontal window openings or with picture windows. Cleaning slider windows is simple. The windows can be easily lifted out of the sash for indoor cleaning of both sides of the glass.

Picture windows: You'll have a great view from this large, fixed window opening. If ventilation is a priority, many homeowners choose to combine picture windows with sliding windows or casement windows.

Bay windows: These are three-lite projection windows with a fixed picture window in the center and side windows, which can be fixed or configured to operate with double-hung windows or casement windows. Bay windows feature a seat area that you can paint or stain to match your home's decor.

Bow windows: These window units are made up of four to six windows in a graceful arc shape with a shallow, insulated seat. Bow windows typically have fixed center windows with operating casements on the ends.

Shaped windows: These windows can be one of your home's architectural highlights. Options include half round, round, ellipse, and trapezoid. Custom shapes are also available to give your home an even more distinctive look.

Circular Window

Garden windows: Enjoy an indoor garden as you turn a window into a living space for plants. These windows can be manufactured to fairly large sizes, so you can make your in-home garden as dramatic as you wish.

No matter which style (or combination of styles) you pick, you're going to love all the benefits that energy-efficient Champion replacement windows provide.
