About Construction

Local wood windows are a popular choice for any new construction project, as well as for remodeling purposes. Local wood windows dealers are found in most communities. Large home improvement stores carry local wood windows, whether these stores are locally owned or chain stores. Local stores that specialize in windows and doors will also carry a line of them. There are many reasons to choose windows from local wood windows dealers. Wood windows offer traditional elegance that windows made from other materials cannot match. These windows are easy to install and maintain, and provide long-lasting service. Local wood windows are produced differently for new construction projects than for remodeling purposes. New construction windows are installed after the building or addition is rough framed. The windows fit snugly into the opening, and are nailed through tabs to the exterior of the building. The tab is then covered with the exterior siding and trim, which provides a secure and attractive finish. Replacement windows must be set in the existing window opening, and affixed to the window jamb. Experienced contractors will have no problem setting them, and the do it yourself process will easily get the knack of it. Local wood windows dealers carry various types of windows for home or business. The most familiar type is a double-hung window. This window moves up and down. The fact that both sashes slide makes for very efficient ventilation. Raising the lower sash will allow cool air to enter the room. Lowering the top sash will allow warm air to be drawn off the ceiling and out of the room.

More on Wood Windows

Double hung windows may also have a tilt option, so the sash can be tilted into the room, allowing for easy cleaning. Double hung windows are offered in traditional and contemporary styles. The woods available from local wood windows dealers include pine, alder, Douglas fir, aspen, and sometimes mahogany. Single hung windows, in which only the lower sash slides will be available from local wood windows dealers. Local wood windows dealers also carry a full line of casement windows, which swing outward with the use of a hand crank on the interior side of the window. The window is supported by a metal arm which glides out. They provide convenience and a contemporary touch to any room. Various styles will be offered, in the same woods as double hung windows. Local wood windows dealers will also offer wood sliding windows, which have one moving slash that opens by sliding it behind the fixed part of the frame. Bay windows feature one fixed window in the middle, with sliding windows on each side, perhaps double hung or casement windows. Local wood windows dealers may also offer awning, garden, and bow windows. Look for low-E windows when shopping. These windows come with treated glass that prevents heat from radiating through the window, keeping the heat in during winter, and the heat out in the summer. Local wood windows dealers will offer windows in various price ranges, to meet any budget.
