New Versus Replacement Windows – What’s the Difference?
Although both types of windows are new, technically “new” windows are used in new home construction. New windows are attached to the home by way of nails driven directly into the exterior or brick mould on the outside through to the window jambs on the inside. Unless the window frame is damaged and needs to be replaced itself, replacement windows are much easier to install and give you the beauty and satisfaction, as well as the lasting durability of new windows without the high costs.
The window style you choose not only dictates how much light can be let in, but also matters in terms of ventilation as well. For example, sliding windows are great for letting in natural light, but only one side can be open at a time, which may limit ventilation. They’re excellent in terms of energy efficiency though. It is possible to get the best of both worlds, depending on the size of the window you want to install, as well as other necessities like easy latching, cleaning and security. Thousands of Sacramento homeowners trust the professionals at America’s Dream HomeWorks for all types of vinyl and wood replacement windows.
