Window glass repair can be a little complicated and involve careful handling of the broken…
Under normal circumstances, people buying a new home or moving into a rented house, seldom give windows the attention they deserve. Most of the attention goes to the usual suspects. These would typically include the interiors, the furniture, the colour of the walls, the flooring and the electrical fittings. Each of these aspects undoubtedly enhances the quality of life within the house. They also enhance its aesthetic quotient by several notches. Their order of importance would vary from person to person. However, several people would place emphasis on these aspects of a house, before they purchase or rent it.
An old proverb states that familiarity breeds contempt. Nowhere is this clearer than in the example of windows in the house. When you enter a friend or colleague’s house, you will take in all the fittings and contraptions at first glance. Only much later, will you even consider examining the windows. Moreover, you will seldom pay attention to the windows out of interest. Rather, the lack of stimulating conversation will be more than likely to let your eyes wander and rest on the windows. There is an exception here though. Cracked glass on the windows or windows in dire requirement of broken glass repair will catch your attention very quickly.
For many people, windows are useful only if they overlook a fantastic landscape. A gorgeous view through a window could make it a favourite haunt for your kids or family members. However, in these days of cramped spaces and skyscrapers, not everyone is lucky. Hence, some of you could even have vague or unseemly sights to gaze at from your windows. However, windows serve other functions as well. They bring in natural light, thereby illuminating the house during the day. Who likes dark houses that use lights powered by electricity even during the day? Moreover, windows help keep the house ventilated. Windows situated on either side of the house aid in cross-ventilation. In terms of aesthetics, windows also have a charm of their own.

When you need replacement glass for your windows, consider whether the windows provide the necessary background for your window glass. For example, framing a masterpiece painting in an ordinary wooden frame would hardly be appropriate. Similarly, installing expensive and high-quality glass on an inappropriate window will hardly be congruous. Therefore, consider the styles of windows from which you can choose. The right window will only accentuate the interiors – and exteriors – of your house. It could even boost the resale value you obtain for your house – should you sell it subsequently. The common types of windows you could choose include
- Awning Windows: Ideal for bedrooms, these windows provide greater privacy and moderate amounts of light and ventilation. They offer versatility in that you can place them in columns, above large patio doors or alongside other windows.
- Bay Windows: Possessing multiple views, these windows allow light to enter from different angles. Their stylish look can make your home look more elegant. However, you can only open the side windows. Moreover, these windows seldom come with insect screens, which might be problematic.
- Casement Windows: These provide greater energy efficiency by virtue of being tightly sealed. Many houses use these in places like over the sink in the kitchen.
- Double Hung Windows: These provide greater flexibility as you can open the top window, whilst leaving the lower window closed. Because only half the window opens, many houses use these windows in rooms for children.
- Hopper Windows: Ideal for basements, the panes on these windows tilt inwards to enable the light and air to enter. This inward tilt can result in the entry of water inside the room.
- Picture Windows: Providing great views of the outdoors, these windows can be effective in bringing balanced amounts of air and light into the room. This makes them ideal for darker rooms and hallways that usually need more light than ventilation
