Replacing your windows is something that should require careful thought for many reasons. The initial thought that typically accompanies replacement windows is the cost, then the benefits. A factor that affects both is the style of window. At Alliance, we offer several window styles that could perfectly complement and stylize your home. An inclusive list is double-hung, casement, sliding, awning, bay, and bow windows. The benefits you receive from our windows largely remain the same, however, there are aesthetic differences that can affect the overall presentation of your home.
Some window styles look good on any area of your home, such as the double-hung window. It’s versatility and simple design has made it one of the more popular windows used on modern homes, but the simplicity also makes it a great option for more stylized homes as well. On the other end of the spectrum, you have something like hopper windows, which are primarily used for basements or other smaller spaces that are in need of light and ventilation. Each style can serve a particular purpose, but still look great anywhere. The majority of windows we carry at Alliance are designed to look great on any area of any style home. However, we will recommend certain windows for particular spaces as they may look better there than another area.
Regardless of the style you choose for your window replacement, most all modern windows are designed to be energy efficient. The airtight seals help prevent drafts from entering your home and keep your conditioned air from escaping. Low-E coatings are practically a standard for energy efficient windows and framing materials of wood and vinyl are natural insulators. All of the windows we offer at Alliance are Energy Star® rated. Our windows have actually earned the rating as “Most Efficient” for 2016, which means you can’t really go wrong with Alliance windows.

We’ll be more than happy to further explain the key differences that can help you determine which window styles can benefit you the most.
