Residential windows in an apartment can say a lot of the style and urban location of a building. Windows serve as a nice architectural accent, which besides providing ventilation, also offers you the possibility of appreciate landscape or even urban life. Residential windows on buildings tend to be equally in each floor, due to the fact that it is easier to buy them in large quantities and for outdoor uniformity purposes. Even though local building code guarantees not only the harmony of the building, but also the emergency escape and rescue requirements, some regulations allow you to change or add residential windows that go with your preference. It is also important to mention that if you are working on a historic building, you must check with the local building department and/or the historical preservation board before replacing any windows.
Types of Residential Window Materials
When it comes about residential windows, frames are the structures that generally vary. Windows such as casements and sliding, for instance are residential windows that come with opening mechanisms such as friction and pivot hinges, which are increasingly popular and can come with combination of materials.
Aluminum windows, for instance can be support by wooden cores, and steel casements can be housed in wooden frames to reduce heat loss. This factor might depend on the owner –in most of the cases-, frames are now a very important decorative element, and you might find them in materials like real wood on the inside, fiberglass or vinyl.
On the other hand there are windows classic looks that might not change over time, such as wood. Frames may diverge in other to add a more innovated touch but some others can be entirely made of this material.
Wood: Wood has always been one of the first selections on residential window materials since ancient times. However hardwood is expensive, but is durable and only needs the protection whether is by paint or a natural wood finish, and regularly maintained.
Aluminum: Where maximum light is required, aluminum windows can be an excellent option-the, not to mention the quality of frames in window like these, which can be able to embrace a large expanse of glass. Nevertheless, FinishBuild recommends that if you live in areas where temperature is high, do not purchase this kind of windows. In the case you happen to own aluminum frames, make sure these have a thermal break so that heat and cold isn’t conducted through the frame. In addition, aluminum windows conducts heat out of the home and is prone to condensation, therefore in building structures sometimes the use of double-glazing is required in order to reduce heat loss.
Fiberglass: FinishBuild loves this window material, since fiberglass do not have same compression and expansion rate as other materials, frames can guarantee you a suitable sliding performance. On the other hand, fiberglass material is generally much stronger and durable than vinyl, aluminum and wood.
Steel: is another classic material for residential building windows. Its traditionally look can enhance but also add a more industrial appearance, however, since this style in a trendy movement, you can easily see it in modern structures with large, sleek expanses of glass. Due to the fact steel is so strong, larger windows with low profile frames can be made. Last but never least we suggest you to take the same consideration regarding temperature conduction.
FinishBuild Best Residential Windows Selection
Commonly joined in two sections, sliding residential windows usually made from single windows, where one of the sections slides horizontally over top of the other to open or close, meaning that only half the space of a sliding window can be utilized for ventilation purposes. Sliding windows are typically used in homes with short walls because they don’t take up as much vertical space. What FinishBuild loves about sliding windows in buildings is the fact that provides a smooth look into interior and exterior areas, which can make the walls seem taller while still providing the same amount of ventilation that a double or single hung window would have. These residential windows are normally fixed near the upper portion of a wall, leaving more space between the floor and the bottom of the window than windows that operate vertically.
The Casement & the Awning type:
These windows are generally built with a hinge in their construction. Regularly seen in building with 3 or 4 levels, casement and awning windows offers a swing out dynamic to the side or up in order to open. You can see it on solid glass and offers a less obstructed view overall.
The awning type:
Awning windows are designed to open to only about 45 degrees. And, wood windows that are installed unfinished should be painted or stained as soon as possible to protect them from wear and weather. Finishing windows seals wood from UV rays, preventing them from turning a gray color. Keep into account that awning windows are ideal for climates with a lot of rain thanks to the way the window creates a water-resistant awning when opened up.
The Jalousie type:
A definitely unique but classic look, jalousie windows belong to a more conservative appealing, these windows open like a set of blinds. Simply crank the lever and the slats tilt to the side creating a bunch of gaps for air to flow through. Today jalousie windows are still used on some homes in warmer climates and metal or glass are the most common material.
Arched windows come with a more royal look. These residential windows are rounded at the top and they can give buildings an artistic feel when used properly. Nevertheless, these type of windows are not designed to open or close, which make them just an illumination item.
On the other hand, there are some that open like casement windows do, to the side like a door not only providing an excellent ventilation system but also giving you the classic touch.
What to know regarding the glass
Glass is an element that you must be aware of, residential building windows should have two panels of glass, also known as dual-glazed windows. In apartments you might find more, from 3 to 6 panels. Depending on where you live and the design of your building, some or all of your windows could be triple-glazed for additional layers of insulation.
In the case you live in upper levels, air might be an issue. The air space between the panes of glass can be filled or cover with a variety of items, such as rubber frame additions, or extra glass frames.
In sunlight areas panes of glass can be coated to control the amount of UV rays, infrared light and heat that is transferred to the interior — look for windows that are labeled as ‘low-E’ (low emissivity). Most coatings are barely visible to the eye, and like gas, help improve the efficiency of the window unit as well as protect the interior of the building from UV damage.
