There are many factors that you need to consider when replacing your windows, such as the material, style and energy efficiency. But homeowners who want their home to have a cohesive look might have another concern in mind: do all the windows need to match?
In this article, the window and roof repair experts of Vertex Roofing Contractors, Inc. shed light on this matter.
Should All Your Windows Match?
Your windows are among the first things people see of your home from the outside, so they need to look attractive. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean all the windows have to look the same. Choosing different window styles–such as casement, picture and double-hung windows–for different rooms in your home can work, provided you use a consistent grille pattern and trim. Just make sure to hire experienced window and roofing contractors.
Rules for Choosing Windows
When choosing new windows for your home, there are some guidelines to keep in mind. One is that you don’t necessarily need to replace your windows with the same style you had before. For example, if you had double-hung windows but prefer to switch to casement so you can have more control over ventilation, you can easily achieve this and still uphold the architectural authenticity of your home if you make the right hardware choices
Second, you should prioritize comfort. For example, if your living room or home office has windows that face east or west, make sure your windows are properly glazed to reduce glare. This is because these windows tend to accept the very low angle of spring or fall sunlight, which can be blinding.
