Curb Appeal


To give your home more curb appeal, it pays to choose your windows carefully. Next, to the style of a house (colonial, Cape Cod, ranch, modern), windows are the biggest factor in determining how your home looks to the outside world.


Most older homes dating back to the days when glass only was available in small panes. So it makes sense when updating older homes to maintain a traditional look through the use of grids and trim.


Generally, windows in the front of a house should complement the style of the home. For many people, and many home styles, that means a traditional, symmetrical design. This is particularly important in neighborhoods where existing homes set in a general style or style is mandated by code. On other sides of the home, you have more freedom.


View


Assembled in configurations, windows and patio doors can create a wonderful sense of openness that brings the outdoors in and can actually make a room seem larger than it is. Picture windows can be combined with arch "half round" windows to add grandeur to a room.


Flank a picture window with operating windows like casement or single hung to provide view and ventilation. Or place awning windows underneath.


Sliding glass doors (standard or French-style) are a great way to bring in the view without the swing space required by an ordinary door or French patio door.


Pair Vinyl Windows with Insulated Glass

It’s no secret that the right window and door system can help reduce your energy bills. But with so many different options and combinations available for frames, glazing, and seals, it can get a little confusing. Thankfully, there is an easy way to make sense of it all – and it all comes down to climate zones…

Retrofit Windows

According to the Window Energy Rating Scheme’s (WERS) website, Arkansas has three major climate zones much like Australlia. A heating climate is an alpine or cooler area such as Tasmania or southern areas of Victoria, where energy is used most for heating. Hot and tropical areas like many parts of Queensland are cooling climates, where the primary use of energy is to keep the home cool. A mixed climate is an environment where energy is used for both heating and cooling equally, throughout the year.

Heating climates

Window Estimates

If you live in a heating climate, window and door systems should work to keep you warm by keeping the heat in. For this climate, WERs recommends products that maximize the solar heat gained during the day (achieve high SHGC ratings). Insulated Glass Units (IGUs) with clear glazing are a good option. However, thermally broken frames such as the ones found on Bradnam’s Signature Thermal Break range, are optimum for reducing energy consumption in a colder climate.

Cooling Climates

Best Windows For Log Homes

If you enjoy hot and tropical climates where you live, window and door systems perform best when they are designed to keep the heat out. Windows that limit solar heat gain (achieve low SHGC ratings) are suitable, and when combined with good insulation they work hard to keep the heat out of your home. Double glazed windows and doors with a Low-E glass on the outer pane are an option you can’t go past in these climates.

Tips to Consider When Replacing Windows in Your Home


The style of your home plays a big role in the type of window you choose for each room. Several other factors affect the window glass and other features you'll want to use for a particular room. Let's consider some of the things that will influence your decision.


Convenience


For a kitchen window over a sink or counter, a sliding horizontal window lets in lots of light and is easy to open when reaching over a counter.


Awning windows provide a great option for ventilation during rains. They open outward and provide shielding for the window opening. Like horizontal sliding windows, they also can be a good choice above a sink or counter—their crank systems allow for easy one-handed operation.


Some double hung window models have tilt-in sashes for easy cleaning. In second- and third-story rooms, these windows save you from having to haul out a ladder to clean your windows.


Think about what furniture or other furnishings you might put in front of a window or patio door inside your house. If a table, for instance, is going to be placed in front of a window, consider a casement window that can be opened and closed with one hand from a crank at the bottom of the window.


In a replacement project, you have the opportunity to change the operation style of your existing window or even put in a patio door.


Note: For a French patio door, be sure to consider how you want to use the interior space near it. If your use of this space would conflict with an in-swinging door, consider an out-swinging French patio door or a French-style sliding door.


Privacy


For a bathroom window or windows flanking an entry, consider privacy/obscure glass options. These provide privacy without the need for window coverings.


Transom windows and skylights provide ambient light without compromising privacy.


If your house is near any source of noise, such as a highway or airport, consider noise reduction (also known as sound control) windows.
