Why Replace Your Home’s Windows?
There are several reasons why you may need home window replacement. If you feel a breeze around your windows even when they’re shut, that’s a sign that it’s time to replace your windows. This draft could indicate a faulty seal, poor installation, frame damage or something else. Replacing your current windows with energy efficient windows is the best solution. Another reason to replace your windows is the buildup of condensation between the glass layers. This problem indicates that the seal has failed.
If your window frames are chipped, soft or water damaged, it’s definitely time for a home window replacement. Usually, these issues mean that the windows will start to sag if they don’t already, and replacement is the only option. You could also need a window replacement if you have trouble opening, closing or locking your windows. If your existing windows let a lot of outdoor noise inside of your home, you can replace them with double- or triple-pane windows with Argon or Krypton gas insulation. No matter why you want to replace your home’s windows, Northern Advantage Exteriors can handle your project.

REPLACEMENT WINDOW TYPES
Windows do more than protect your interior and let fresh air and light into your house. They also influence the aesthetics and affect whether your home appears traditional or modern. With a home window replacement, you can customize what your windows look like and how they function. At Northern Advantage Exteriors, we have a variety of styles and types to choose from so that you get the perfect fit for your needs and preferences. Here’s some basic information about the types of windows that we can install.
Single-hung or single-sash windows consist of two vertical sashes or panels. Typically, only the bottom sashes slide up and down. However, you can get single-hung windows with upper sashes that slide up and down instead.
Also called double-sash windows, these windows have two vertical sashes or panels that both slide up and down. During your home window replacement, you can choose to have the sashes tilt outward for easy cleaning and maintenance.
Creating a small nook inside of your home, bay windows stick out from the exterior of your house. Although they look like they curve out, they consist of three flat windows that sit in angled frames. They provide additional curb appeal for your home.
Compared to panel windows, casement windows have a less obstructed view of the outside. Typically, two solid glass panes are installed next to each other, and you can open them upward or to the side.
Sliding windows consist of two single window panels that sit next to each other and slightly overlap near the frame. Since they’re installed on a track, you slide one panel over the other to open it.
If you have no space on your walls to install windows, skylights are a great alternative that come in electric, fixed and manual varieties. During your home window replacement, we install them parallel with your roof’s slope.
