While getting the best quality window is very important, having the proper function should be considered as well, we really want to look at who is using the windows and how they are using them:
Windows Over Counters or Sinks
It’s always nice to have a window that you can look out of or open up when you are standing at the kitchen sink, unfortunately, if that window is a double or single hung, it’s difficult for the vertically-challenged to operate.
Tip from an Omaha Window Installation Company: This is a great location for a casement (crank-out) style window, you only have to be tall enough to reach the bottom of the window and you can easily open and close it.
Windows That Open On To A Porch or Deck
A casement or awning window that opens onto a deck or patio can be a potential tripping hazard to the guests at your next outdoor party. It is usually a good idea to change windows in this situation to a vertical sliding window (double-hung or single-hung), these windows open up instead of out so there is nothing to trip over or bump into.
Windows With Blinds
Are you someone that likes to have your window opened just a crack and lower your blinds, this works well with double or single hungs but not with casements.
Floor to Ceiling Pictures Windows
Many houses that were built in the 70s, 80s and 90s have 10-12 of these “direct set” windows on the main floor. While these are great for letting in a lot of light, they cannot be opened. As an Omaha Window Installation Company, we love the idea of so much light, however, we recommend to replace them with a single or double-hung so you can take advantage of the cross breezes on those nice spring and summer evenings.
