Windows come in many shapes and sizes to suit a variety of needs. When it's time for replacement windows in St. Paul, you can choose to buy a newer version of what you already have or take some time to consider specialty windows with some extra functionality. Here is a look at a few windows types you may want to consider.
One simple upgrade is to replace your single-hung windows with double-hung versions. This means if you had a window where only the lower pane was movable, now you can move both panes. This lets you slide open just the top pane to get some nice air flow while making it harder for a pet or child to climb out.
If you have a window in an area you or another family member likes to hang out with a book, this is a good candidate for a bay or bow window. This kind of window has multiple panes of glass that extend outward from your home and often provide enough space for a small bench or some storage.
For the chef who likes to use fresh herbs, a garden window is a great place to put small pots of basil, oregano and thyme. This kind of window is a smaller version of a bay window and fits nicely over a kitchen sink. If herbs aren't what excite you, you can also plant flowers and succulents.
A small upgrade to your windows is a great way to add functionality to your home. Whether making a small change, such as going from single-hung to double-hung windows, or something more dramatic, such as replacing a small living room window with a bay window, you'll need experienced contractors on your side.
