Which Window Is Right For You?
When it comes to selecting replacement windows for your home, it’s a little more complicated than simply slapping them onto the side of your house. The type of windows you select can completely change the way your house looks and feels, and a window installation can transform ordinary indoor spaces into breathtaking works of art. We specialize in installing a number of different window types, and our Kansas City window contractors will work with you to determine the right windows for your space and budget. Here are just a few of the options we offer:
To give your house more of a classic look, bow and bay windows are the perfect choice. These two window types are actually quite similar – they both project outward to increase the living space while adding plenty of sunlight. The main difference between bow and bay windows is that bay windows use three vertical window sections, and bow windows use four. If you’re looking to add an open, elegant feeling to a dining or living room, take a look at our bow and bay window installation options.
Casement windows are a popular choice for Kansas City homeowners who want to add windows to a space that has more vertical space than horizontal space. Casement windows – and their cousins, awning windows – use crank or slide mechanisms to open on hinges, promoting airflow throughout your house without the cluttered look of traditional double-hung windows. Casement windows are also highly efficient, easy to clean, and they can even be combined with other window types like bay and picture windows to create a truly custom look.
Probably the most common window found in modern homes, double hung windows are durable, easy to maintain, and offer plenty of sunlight and ventilation. Newer models even have the ability to tilt inwards, allowing you to clean outward-facing glass with ease. Double hung windows are also endlessly customizable – ask us about installing radius tops to give your new windows a truly unique look.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a picture window is sure to be a conversation-starter in any room of your home! These large, horizontal windows help bring the natural beauty of the outdoors into your living space, whether they’re framing the Kansas City skyline or a perfectly manicured lawn. Picture windows can completely change the atmosphere of any room. Even one new window might cause your guests to think you’ve had a complete remodel! Picture window installations are perfect for homeowners who are looking to create truly stunning spaces in their homes.
Do You Need A Window Installation?
At Blue Springs Siding and Windows, our mission is to help you create a space you’re proud to call home. We install replacement windows for a variety of reasons, and we’ve listed a few of them below in order to help you determine if new windows could benefit your home. If you’re experiencing any of these problems, then please get in touch with our window contractors to learn more about how you could benefit from new windows!
Rising Energy Bills
As a resident of Kansas City and the surrounding areas, you’re no stranger to the intense and dynamic weather we receive throughout the year. The winter is often cold and bitter, while the spring and summer months are hot and humid. As homeowners ourselves, we recognize how important it is to have an efficient and well-insulated home. Improved energy efficiency is one of the best reasons to invest in window installations, and the Soft-Lite windows we provide are some of the most efficient windows on the market.
Standing next to your windows on a cold day is one of the easiest ways to check the health of your windows. While it’s expected that the window pane will be cooler to the touch than the rest of your home, the space around your window should not be markedly colder than the rest of the room. If you can feel a drastic decrease in temperature as you move your hand closer to the window, then it’s time to purchase new windows that won’t allow the outside temperature to drastically affect the temperature inside your home.
The candle test is another way to determine if your windows are contributing to energy loss. Light a candle and move it slowly across every corner of your windows. If the flame flickers or moves drastically in certain spots, then you probably have a few small openings that are compromising your energy efficiency. Replacing your leaky windows with our energy-efficient models is a great way to ensure that your home is prepared for the highs and lows we experience throughout the year.
Even if your windows aren’t compromising your home’s energy efficiency, you may want to replace them due to decreased functionality. Perhaps they only open or close after you’ve exerted a great deal of force, or maybe they no longer tilt inward or outward when you need to clean the panes. Regardless of where the source of your problem lies, you deserve functional windows that won’t make your life difficult.
Your windows may open and close with relative ease, but you should keep a close eye on panes surrounded by wooden frames. Wooden frames will sometimes warp or bend after prolonged exposure to the elements, eventually making them difficult to open and close. With the inclement weather we see throughout the year in Kansas City and the surrounding areas, we’re never surprised to see wooden window frames becoming warped and distorted over time.
While functionality is certainly an important concern, safety is perhaps the most important reason why you should invest in a window installation. You can never anticipate when you’ll have to exit your home due to an emergency, so periodically check to ensure that they open smoothly and without issue. If you find that your windows could be difficult to escape through in an emergency, then consider your next window installation an investment in your safety.
If you’re like many homeowners, then you may not know that quality windows can significantly reduce the noise that travels inside your home. Single- and double-pane windows can both allow sound waves to travel through your home, so consider a window installation if you’re constantly hearing noises from the surrounding areas. Whether you live close to a busy street, or you’re in close proximity to your neighbors, you’ll be surprised how much of difference it can make to have new and improved windows in your home.
Condensation is not a bad thing per se, but the appearance of condensation in certain areas can signal that it’s time to purchase replacement windows. Condensation that appears only on the outside of your windows, for instance, is nothing to be concerned about. Take a moment to consider vehicles that are parked on the street — it’s completely normal to see condensation forming on the windows, doors, and hood when it starts to get cool in the early morning. On the other hand, condensation on the inside of your windows is a sign that you may have too much humidity inside your home. The good news is that nothing is wrong with your windows, but you may want to look into a dehumidifier or a whole-home fan to prevent mold and mildew from forming.
As far as the health of your windows is concerned, the appearance of condensation between the window panes is a sign that it’s time to purchase replacement windows. Inter-pane condensation means that the exterior seal has broken and outside air is now flowing into your home. Some homeowners turn to DIY methods in an attempt to save money, but sealing your windows on your own is akin to treating the symptoms of a disease instead of addressing the underlying causes. Investing in new window installation will ensure that you won’t have to take even more of your time to patch recurring problems.
Whether you’re simply trying to update your home’s appearance, or you plan on putting it on the market in the near future, your recent window installation can be an exceptional selling point. Something sophisticated like a bay window installation can help your home stand apart from the others on the market, potentially leading to a faster sale. Whether you choose to install new models or simply upgrade your current ones, potential buyers will love knowing that they won’t have to worry about a window installation for years to come. Beautiful new windows can also increase your home’s overall value, allowing you to recoup some of your investment when your home’s sale is finalized.
