Homeowners should look for replacement windows that insulate the home, are easy to clean and have long warranty. They should also consider window and installation cost.
Window replacement is not the same as new-construction windows. The entire window casing is not removed, typically only the sash and some parts. Replacement windows can be double-hung or casement windows.
Double-hung windows open by sliding up and down. Casement windows swing in and out. Homeowners should also consider the ease of cleaning the windows. Many double-hung windows can open out and fold down to access the panes for cleaning. Casement windows can open for cleaning.
