Windows play a major role in the look, feel, and energy efficiency of your home, so its important to choose the right ones when youre ready to replace your old windows. But with so many options on the market, how do you know which type of window is right for your home?

Heres a quick guide from the experts at North Shore Home Works, Chicagos top provider of replacement windows:

Casement Windows

If youre looking for windows that open wide and let in a lot of natural light, casement windows are a great option. These windows are hinged on one side and open outward, so theyre easy to clean from the inside of your home. Casement windows are a great choice for rooms that get a lot of suns because you can open them to let in a breeze while still protecting your home from UV rays.

Sliding Windows

Sliding windows are another popular choice for rooms that get a lot of sun because they also let in a lot of natural light. These windows open horizontally, so theyre a good choice if you have limited space for a window that opens outward. Sliding windows are also easy to clean because you can reach both sides of the window from the inside of your home.

Picture Windows

Picture windows are a popular choice for living rooms and bedrooms because they provide a clear view of the outdoors. These windows dont open, so theyre a good choice if you want to maximize your energy efficiency. Picture windows are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, so you can find one that fits your space.

Awning Windows

Awning windows are hinged at the top and open outward, so theyre a good choice if you want to let in a breeze but keep your home protected from the rain. Awning windows are also easy to clean, because you can reach both sides of the window from the inside of your home.

Bay and Bow Windows

Bay and bow windows are a great way to add space and light to your home. These windows project outward from your home, so they create a little nook inside your home. Bay and bow windows are a good choice for living rooms, because they provide a clear view of the outdoors and let in a lot of natural light.

Skylights

Skylights are a great way to add natural light to your home. These windows are installed in your roof, so they let in light from above. Skylights are a good choice for rooms that dont have a lot of windows, because they can brighten up the space.

Now that you know a little more about the different types of windows available, you can start shopping for the perfect replacement windows for your home. When youre ready to install your new windows, call the experts at North Shore Home Works. Well help you choose the right windows for your home and ensure theyre installed properly.

"We had an aging roof that was starting to show moss build up and shingle loss. We called a few companies until we finally met Ron at North Shore Home Works. We went with architectural shingles and love the way our new roof looks! Call Ron if you need a roof replacement you can rely on!"

Roof Mt. Prospect

"Amazed with the whole process we went through getting a new roof installed by the team at North Shore Home Works! We had hail damage and they walked us through the insurance process. They helped us design a roofing system that was perfect for our home. The roof even came with a strong warranty. Very pleased with North Shore Home Works and I would recommend them to anyone!"
