    A Look at the Different Types of Windows for Your Home

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Homeowners have several options when it comes to replacement windows. They can just replace their existing windows with styles that are similar, or upgrade and choose different operating types. Affordable windows are available in a wide variety of styles, shapes, and operating mechanisms that can help make your home unique and add function and beauty to every room.

    • Double-Hung: One of the most popular replacement window styles, the double-hung window opens from both the top and the bottom. It is a versatile choice for homeowners who like to have the option of opening one or both sashes.
       
    • Casement: Casement windows open from one side, and they’re ideal for bracketing fixed windows or for use in areas where space is at a premium. They open via a crank mechanism to a set angle, and can be oriented in the direction of the homeowner's choice.
       
    • Sliding and Fixed: Sliding windows are similar to single-hung windows that operate from the side. Fixed windows do not open at all, and are appropriate for applications like picture windows or bay and bow windows.
       
    • Awning: Awning windows are similar to casement windows in that they open outward, but awning windows are oriented vertically. They can be opened from the top or the bottom depending upon how the homeowner wishes them to be placed, and are ideal for areas that require ventilation and privacy, such as the bath or bedroom.
       
    • Bay and Bow: These windows are absolutely stunning, and can be the centerpiece of any replacement window installation in your home. Bay windows typically consist of a center pane with one on either side, angled outwards and projecting from the home. Bow windows are similar, but often consist of five or more panes and provide a gentler curve. The insides of these windows can be used as a cozy and scenic seating area.
        
    • Specialty: No home is complete without specially-shaped windows that fit its unique architecture. These can include transoms, dormer windows, or any other accents.

    Affordable Windows and Doors proudly serves White Plains with our beautiful selection of replacement windows. Visit us online for more information, or call us at (845) 704-2335.

    Learn How to Replace the Hardware on Your Door!

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Replacing your door hardware can help you get an upgrade on style and function, make certain doors easier to access, or increase your security. Quality door hardware is important for ensuring that your door operates smoothly, and it can change the look of the door itself.

    Uninstalling your old door hardware is easy with a power screwdriver. There are typically two screws located on the interior hardware, loosening which allows homeowners to remove the plate holding the latch in place and remove the exterior knob. Many replacement hardware kits come with a new strike plate, so the old one will need to be removed from the doorjamb. Watch this video to learn more.

    Which Style of Door Suits Your Home Best?

    Last updated 1 year ago

    When it comes to choosing an exterior door for your home, it's important to make the right decision. With many affordable doors in different styles available, you'll want to find the one that matches your home and adds curb appeal while suiting your individual tastes. The front door is often considered the face of your home, so take the time to explore the different styles available to you before making this important choice.

    Traditional Doors
    Traditional styles often incorporate familiar patterns, wood designs, and window glass. Stately arches or Asian-inspired curves can add an elegant touch to any home, though it is important to have an eye for your home's specific style and architecture. Craftsman-style homes, Tudors, and Victorian homes can all benefit from traditionally-styled affordable doors.

    There are also different accents you may wish to consider, including doors that incorporate wrought iron or specialty wooden carvings. These can truly make your home or estate stand out while fitting perfectly into your existing architecture.

    Contemporary Doors
    Contemporary-styled doors tend to have more modern lines and often incorporate more glass than the typical door. These can be ideal for trendy and quaint homes, making a unique statement for your building or entrance. Homeowners can also consider similar accents that incorporate iron or carving styles for additional security and panache while keeping to a more modern theme.

    Something else to keep in mind when choosing your new exterior door are the material choices available. Wood is always classic, while doors made entirely of iron can offer additional security and strength. Fiberglass doors are becoming very popular things to their cost-effectiveness, energy efficiency, and beautiful appearance that mimics wood.

    At Affordable Windows and Doors, we carry a full selection of wood, metal, and fiberglass doors in many styles to suit your home or building's architecture. Visit us online to explore them in greater detail and see what options you can add, or contact us at (845) 704-2335 for additional information.
