We all rate the household as being one of the important places in our lives, but imagine a home without windows. Its pretty unthinkable unless you fancy having constant noise, pollution and dirt invading your property. No did not think you would fancy that!
The window is too often taken for granted and when moving into a new home, buyers sometimes tend not to think about whether the windows installed are providing the necessary benefits. Windows can help reduce heating bills, cut out the majority of noise from traffic and neighbours and provide the upmost security at your property.
There are a variety of different windows available of which two types are analysed below. You need to decide which will best be practical for your needs.
The casement window is attached to a frame by one or more hinges, it is commonly hinged at the side. It was the most popular window bought until the Sash window was introduced, but it is still enormously popular. It enables you to open the whole window, something you need to beware of if you have children though. One of the great benefits is that you can clean the window from inside the home, saving you the trauma of having to do it in the wind or cold. They are an attractive window, weather tight and are composed of a multilocking mechanism.
Sash windows slide up and down, as well as having the capability to be tilted inwards and usually slide vertically. They are internally glazed so that the glass cannot be removed from the outside. They are made of one or more movable panels or “sashes” that form a frame to hold panes of glass which are often separated from other panes. A significant advantage of sash windows is that they provide efficient cooling of interiors during warm weather.
