Windows provide homeowners with views of their surroundings but they also offer so much more, including potentially increasing the value of your home. But did you know not all windows are built the same? While you might think every window serves the same purpose, some may be more useful to you and your home based on their design and the advantages they offer.
New Jersey Siding & Windows, Inc. is pleased to offer clients in Northern New Jersey and the surrounding areas a wide selection of premium quality window replacements to meet their every need.

Our Selection of Window Styles
For many homeowners, curb appeal is often a point of pride. Replacement windows are an excellent way for them to enhance the appearance of their residences. Because every house is unique, New Jersey Siding & Windows, Inc. accommodates these differences by offering a vast assortment of window styles. We offer replacement windows made of wood and vinyl available in the following styles:
If you take the average home, chances are it’s outfitted with double-hung windows. They’re the most common type of window style and are known for their easy maintenance. Double-hung windows slide along a vertical track to open and close and deliver excellent ventilation. Both sashes also tilt in for easy cleaning.
Much like a door, casement windows swing open from a hinge by use of a cranking mechanism. A great energy-efficient option, they feature a strong seal around the window that effortlessly eliminates drafts. The swing function also allows for a great amount of airflow when desired.
Just as the name suggests, slider windows work by allowing one section to slide over the other. With a large opening, they allow for excellent airflow and good sealing when closed. The only mechanical component included in these sliding windows is a locking mechanism, which helps make them easier to maintain.
With hinges at the top, awning windows protrude outward and provide superior protection. This makes them the ideal option for anyone who enjoys leaving their windows open during rainfall. The crank mechanism is easy to operate and creates a tight seal when not in use. When open, awning windows offer a comfortable airflow.
Homeowners searching for a functional and appealing option should consider bay windows. This window style generally consists of three windows, two operable and one fixed, protruding from the home and coming together at angles. On the inside, this window style tends to make rooms feel more spacious and creates a bay or shelf for additional seating or storage.
To create a wow factor with your replacement windows, consider picture windows. This window style doesn’t obstruct the outside scenery, delivering picturesque views. Because of their size, picture windows also offer superior natural light to illuminate spaces. However, because there aren’t any mechanical elements, picture windows are locked into place and don’t open.
Similar to other window styles in the way they protrude outward from the home, garden windows are three-dimensional glass structures. This design allows for maximum sunlight to enter the home. With shelf-like window sills offering a great space for plants, they allow for indoor gardening in all seasons. While garden windows can be installed in any room of the home, they are most commonly found in the kitchen over the sink.
Bow windows are commonly mistaken for bay windows and that has much to do with their similar design. Bow windows are created by combining windows that extend out from the home in a curved design. They are extremely versatile and welcome great sunlight and airflow into any space.
Given our vast knowledge and experience in the industry, New Jersey Siding & Windows, Inc. can accommodate homeowners with specific needs. Our specialty window treatments allow clients to receive customized window treatments, turning their visions into realities.
