As you begin your search for a replacement window contractor in the Ann Arbor area, it is best to know what type of window you are looking for. Nowadays, while wooden window frames are still available, there are more options to choose from.
PVC or vinyl windows are one of the least expensive options in window replacement, and are virtually maintenance free. This type of window never needs to be painted nor stained and come in a wide variety of color, size, and style options.
Historic: Wooden window frames are the go-to for most homeowners in older, more traditional jomes. The look and feel of a genuine window from cannot be matched by its imitators. If this is the look you are going for, there is no reason to settle for a cheap imitation.
Clad: Even with a growing number of options of window materials, wood has remained a preferred choice looking for dependability. Clad windows utilize a wooden frame with an exterior cladding of fiberglass, vinyl, or aluminum.
Over the past 10 years, fiberglass has become the preferred material for replacement windows. Low thermal expansion paired with superior strength-to-weight ratio help to retain the integrity of the window frame over time.
Whether your style is classic or contemporary, double or single hung windows are a beautiful choice for any home. Plus, their top & bottom (double) or bottom (single) sashes tilt into the home for easy cleaning and provide efficient ventilation.
As practical as they are beautiful, these windows are hinged at the top and open out like an awning. Both in traditional and contemporary designs, they’re often placed above other windows and doors.
These feature a one hinged sash that glides out, welcoming the breeze in. Most common in newer homes, casement windows are coveted for their clean, uncluttered views & effortless operation.
Sliding windows house a single sliding sash that glides open horizontally, allowing for easy operation – an ideal choice for difficult-to-reach places. These windows are available a single slide or double slide. The operational panels lift out for easy cleaning.
