The right replacement windows can make a big difference in your bedroom. They can create a calm, peaceful atmosphere and frame your lush greenery outdoors, giving your space a lovely backdrop. They also allow you to enjoy a cool, refreshing breeze, providing much needed ventilation.
Read on as Renewal by Andersen® of Cape Cod, one of the top window contractors, shares some factors to consider when choosing replacement windows for your bedroom:
Local Building Codes
Before anything else, check your local building codes. Bedroom windows typically have entry requirements for the size of the window opening in case of an emergency. Casement and sliding windows work well for meeting these conditions, but you may also opt for custom-made units to suit your preferences.
Natural Lighting and Energy Efficiency
As your sanctuary for quiet time and sleep, your bedroom needs to be quiet and peaceful. This can be made possible with energy-efficient windows, which are built with low-emissivity (low-e) glass, multiple panes and an argon gas fill. These components will bring natural lighting into your home while minimizing heat gain. As one of the most trusted local window companies, Renewal by Andersen of Cape Cod can provide what you need.
Wood is a classic option that has excellent insulating properties, but it requires considerable maintenance to remain in good condition. Vinyl, on the other hand, is low maintenance but has limited design options.
Fortunately, our Fibrex® frame addresses the disadvantages of these two materials. It combines the strength and beauty of wood with the minimal upkeep of vinyl. It can be manufactured into narrower frames, allowing for a larger glass area.
