How to Select Impact Windows for Your Home.

“A house without books is like a room without windows.” – Horace Mann. And a house without windows is not a house.  Windows play a vital role in daily life, providing natural light and views to the outside world while protecting us from the elements.  And in return homeowners maintain their windows by cleaning them, decorating them, and protecting them from storms.  Homeowners seeking to retrofit their homes with impacts windows may be overwhelmed with the options available to them.

To make the selection process easier homeowners should know there are four basic types of impact windows:

Fixed Windows:

Fixed impact windows (also called picture windows) do not open or close.  These windows are ideal for hard-to-reach places or as key architectural design components.  Fixed impact windows come in many shapes and sizes.

Single Hung Windows:

Single-hung windows have a movable lower sash that slides to open vertically. 

Horizontal Roller Windows:

Horizontal rolling impact windows slide side-to-side (similar to a sliding glass door).   

Casement Windows:

Casement impact windows (also called crank windows) project out by operating a durable crank.

Once one or more impact window types are selected homeowners can then venture into the different styles offered by the manufacturer.  One of the most basic steps is to decide whether or not have muntins (grids) in the windows.  From there homeowners can opt for styles such as modern, contemporary, traditional, to suit their personal taste.  Additional features such as tinting, LoE, and argon gas insulated panes are also available.
