by | Sep 13, 2016 | Construction & Maintenance

If the windows in your home have seen better days it may be wise to consider removing them and installing San Antonio replacement windows. New windows will certainly reduce your HVAC bills and add considerably to the value of your home should the time come when you sell it.

There are a phenomenal number of choices available in materials, styles and features that make it difficult to make up your mind which is the right choice.

Although they both entail removing and replacing windows, there are two terms that are often used; new windows and replacement windows. Don’t let this confuse you; the term new windows is used when there is going to be a size or shape change while a replacement window is the same size and shape as the one being removed. New windows and replacement windows cost the same based on size and features but new windows are often more expensive to install because of the additional work that must be done.

Replacement windows in San Antonio are ideal when the surrounding frame is still in excellent condition. The savings in labor can be considerable so it is a point to consider.

Window styles:

Once you have decided on either new or replacement windows the next challenge is to choose the style. The four common and most popular styles are single or double hung, casement, awning or sliding. Single hung and double hung are perhaps the most common, they are featured in most homes. Basically they are two sashes which open and close by sliding them up and down. A single hung version opens only from the bottom while a double hung window opens from both the bottom and the top.
