Summer’s here, the weather’s warm and nothing beats a nice summer breeze flowing through your home. If you’re like many homeowners here in the Midwest, that breeze probably blows through double-hung windows - by far the most popular window style in the region.
Wallside Windows has installed its share of double-hung windows over the past 75 years.
“We have been doing this a long time and know what we are doing,” said David Ball, operations manager at Wallside Windows.
So why is it that double-hung windows remain a popular option?
“Most customers just want to match the same look of their home,” Ball said. “Historically, double-hung windows are a popular product in the Midwest. They allow you to clean both the inside and outside glass from the inside of your home -- no need to get a ladder on the outside. They also allow you to vent from the top only if you want to.”
The technology behind the windows is constantly improving, mainly focusing on energy efficiency, ease of use and style.
“Over the last few years, we have added products like premium glass to increase the efficiency ratings, constant force balances that allow easy opening and closing - and an exterior laminate for a more decorative look,” Ball said.
The laminate offers color options like almond, clay, terratone and black.
If double-hung windows don’t suit your fancy, styles like casements, sliders and patio doors are other big sellers at Wallside. And if you’re considering a window upgrade, summer is the perfect time.
“At the end of the day we are a construction company, and getting your windows installed in these warmer months is not only good for us but also the customer,” Ball said.
“Remember, we will be pulling your windows out of your home, and although we work year round, the weather will play a bigger role in the colder months.
