Which Window Unit Should You Choose?
Aluminium windows can make such a huge difference to the overall appearance of a home – and they can significantly affect its value, too. Choosing the right type of window for your property is pretty important, so Klosen have prepared a quick guide to the four most popular types to help you make your decision.
The most popular style of window here in the UK, and perhaps the most versatile too, is the casement window. A wide variety of options are available, including side hung, top hung and bottom hung configurations, allowing you to mix and match for ultimate convenience. They’re also well insulated and suit most properties.
Tilt & Turn Windows
Tilt and turn windows do exactly as their name would suggest: they can open in two ways, allowing you to open them the perfect amount for ventilation. They look similar to casement windows but instead of opening outwards, they open inwards, which is handy as it allows for easy cleaning on both sides.
A timeless, stylish option, sash windows slide up and down and certainly look the part, especially on an older property. They often require more maintenance than other windows, and aren’t typically as energy efficient, but modern sash windows are vastly superior to their period equivalents.
Much like traditional patio doors, sliding windows open sideways, offering excellent views out and plenty of natural light in. Their sleek design and effortless operation make them a perfect fit for newer, more contemporary homes.
Deciding which is for you
Often, properties combine more than one of these window options – and it’s possible to do this while maintaining a cohesive look. To find out more about the range of windows we supply and install including slimline aluminium windows, or to receive a quote, contact us today.
