What Are the Best Window Types for Different Home Styles?

If your home needs new windows, homeowners would do well to get reliable window contractors to replace their windows for them. Choosing the right type of window for the home, however, depends on some factors, including home styles.

American Farmhouse

The American Farmhouse is a modern interpretation of the Victorian style. The windows in these homes are often double-hung windows that are taller than they are wide and come in earth tones, whites and pastels.

Craftsman Bungalow

Double-hung windows with stained interiors and casement windows are commonly used for these homes. Home window replacement experts say that these windows are usually vertically proportioned and have grilles on the upper part.

Industrial Modern

This style makes use of materials found in factories, such as concrete, corrugated metal and exposed wood. It uses casement and awning windows arranged to reflect interior function.

International Modern

This home style was built on the belief that function is more important than style. These homes often have multiple casement or picture windows arranged to make one large rectangular window.

Miesian Modern

This home style uses floor-to-ceiling windows to maximize the areas where glass is uninterrupted and, in essence, looks invisible.

Prairie

Several casement windows arranged to form long horizontal bands characterize Prairie-style homes. Casement windows are often used here because they offer wide, uninterrupted glass panes.

Tudor

Various window types are used for Tudor-style homes. Casement and transom windows are common here. Bay windows are also typically found here, whether in the first or second story.

Reviews

"Excellent service and product! They checked in with me every few weeks while we were waiting for the order. I was impressed with Sam, who measured my windows and headed the installation crew. He was respectful and patient with his team. They cleaned up after themselves. Before the new windows I had huge windows that didn’t open. Now I feel much safer and get better temperatures in those rooms."

"My experience with Anderson Renewal was amazing! From the first meeting with Miranda to choose my windows and doors to the installation provided by Tim and his crew was a pleasure! I just bought a home built in the 1960's that needed new windows and a new double front door with sidelights. As everyone knows Anderson Windows are great, but it was the people I interacted with from Anderson that made it such a great experience. It took three days for the windows and door to be installed and they "worked" every minute they were here. My huge front door took most of the day to install because they had to put in a new header and other improvements to make it fit! They even put up new drywall on the inside. Many people in the neighborhood have stopped by to comment on my beautiful front door! I think the crew left my house cleaner than it was before they started! Constantly cleaning up after themselves. I am thrilled with my windows and feel lucky to have met the team at Anderson."

"Very professional staff . No pressure sales. The job they do is neat and clean, no cleanup left for the owner. Communication is great. Always informed on the status of of your product, AND the tin of cookies you receive afterwards is a pleasant plus."
