Which Replacement Windows Should You Get?

When getting new replacement windows you should consider their energy efficiency, how easy they are to operate, and what function they serve in each room.


Crank vs. Sliding Windows

Crank windows (casement, awning) are a more expensive, but better performing option. They are made with a compression seal around the moving part of the window. When these windows are closed, the compression seal makes them an airtight unit for best performance. Crank windows are also much easier to operate, as the window is opened and closed with a mechanism. These windows are great for hard to reach places, oversize windows, and areas where you want the most comfort.


Sliding and hung windows usually have weather stripping in the place where the moving part meets the frame. Weather stripping is not as efficient as a compression seal. Sliding windows don’t perform as well as crank ones do, but they are also cheaper, making them ideal for budget installations. These windows are great for allowing ventilation in smaller openings, in rooms where comfort is not a priority, or where a window can be easily accessed.


How long does it take for a replacement project?

Depending on the size of your order, style of the windows your choose, and any additional customizations, your window replacement project may take 6-10 weeks to manufacture, deliver, and install.
