How to Choose New Home Windows

Windows and Doors

Important To Arkansas

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.


What To Look For In A Good Quality Replacement Window

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…

What Are The Best Windows For Homes

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

Replacement Windows

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

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.

Vinyl Windows

As the owner of a home repair company, I've seen an alarming trend of homeowners reporting window leaks. These leaks often result from improperly installed windows or poor home construction techniques that prompt the need for expensive, premature repairs. The following article reveals the warning signs that every homeowner can use to determine if they have a serious window leak.

Tell Tale Signs of a Window Leak

Visible moisture on the interior of your home in the vicinity of a window is a rather obvious sign of a window leak. But often there are more insidious window leaks who symptoms take far longer to spot. Unfortunately, these symptoms arise after significant damage has occurred. The description (and pictures via the link at the end of this article) will help you spot those problems before they can cost your thousands of dollars in preventable home repairs.

Case Study on the Damage from Leaking Windows

To illustrate how a small, insidious window leak can cause enormous frustration for a homeowner, let's examine a case study from a recent client that we helped in Amelia, Ohio-a suburb of Cincinnati. This home was about 8 years old, and like many tract homes built in the Cincinnati area, have 2-story great rooms with windows composing much of the exterior wall. While this is a wonderful architectural feature, the vinyl siding and construction techniques used in these homes do not generally prevent a large wall of windows like this from leaking.

  1. Does the window always leak when it rains? Or does it only leak during a heavy rain shower?
  2. Does the window leak when the rain is being driven by wind from a particular direction?
  3. How long has the window been leaking? Can you identify any event associated with the first time you noticed the window leak? (i.e. significant storm, ice event, extreme winds, etc.)
  4. Has the leak worsened? Or has it remained consistent over time?
  5. Have you attempted to stop the leak? If so, what has been done? Has that helped?
  6. If you can obtain this information, find out who built your home and when it was constructed.
