What style are you looking for? Do you want your window to open wide or do you want to be able to slide it? There are varieties, such as casement windows, double-hung, slider and awning windows.
The most important aspect of a window is often its level of efficiency. How energy efficient your window is can make the difference in hundreds of dollars in utilities. Look for windows that have low emissivity, because these windows let very little heat through, so you can save money in the winter and the summer.
How strong are your windows? Are they shatter proof? If you have kids or are in a neighbourhood where they are close by, then you will also want to think about this. While your window isn’t going to be bulletproof, it is going to be resistant against knocks (whether they are accidental or deliberate).
Selecting good windows can be the best thing you can do for your house and your wallet. Be mindful of the factors discussed here and ask lots of questions before making a decision.
