First, you must consider the type of sunroom windows and the frame materials you desire. Energy efficiency is also an essential factor and the placement of the sunroom. You want windows that do not raise the costs of your energy bills and offer you great views.
Types of Sunroom Windows
There are different styles and materials available for sunroom windows. The function will impact your decision and whether you want them in your home. When replacing your windows, you should also consider the rest of your home.
You will get the best views with a picture window because they do not have any latches, knobs, or other obstructions. Homeowners place these windows on the far wall to take in the view. These are the most popular window styles for sunrooms. However, remember they do not move, and you cannot open them, so it is a permanent feature.
Another popular option is sliding because they can slide to either side, and you can leave them open during the fall to take in the breeze. They are also childproof, so you do not need to worry about safety.
Popular all around the home are double-hung windows that open up and down instead of side to side like sliding windows. It is also the easiest window to match with the rest of your home and offers exceptional ventilation.
You will use a crank to open a casement window, which will have an elegant look. You will get sunlight and airflow into the sunroom.
Awning windows open from the bottom and tilt out. We often place them in the kick of the sunroom. The main benefit of these windows is that Wheeling homeowners can leave them open during rainy weather.
Another fixed sunroom window option is sunlight window styles. You will see these on two sides of a door. The main difference between a sidelight and a picture window is the size. Sidelight windows are skinnier. They also match nearly any window.
