Awning Windows / August 4, 2018 / Tearlach DuLin
Primarily it may be the environment that affects the choice of windows. A harsh environment calls for windows that are inside the house rather than exposed to the sun wind and temperature shifts whereas a mild environment allows the use of windows that are exposed to the outside. Ventilation is another important point to be considered while choosing windows. Windows fitted on opposite walls allow for cross ventilation and help keep the rooms cool.
Casement windows are attached vertically with hinges to one side on a wall. They usually open with a crank mechanism. A single window or a pair of windows can be fitted into a frame. They open all the way outward and are wide open from top to bottom and sidetoside. A sliding window is a window that slides along a track inside the window frame. The frame may consist of many tracks depending on the number of windows on the tracks. They open horizontally and give a hundred percent view of the outside.
At first you will be having a hard time removing and placing the windows back in place. You need to learn how to work on them which later on can be easier. Cleaning these kinds of windows is not that easy especially if you are doing it alone. You need to develop certain skills to be able to perfectly finish the cleaning. Sliding panels are a great alternative to window blinds and horizontal window doors. They have a softer look than glass and can also be great accents in an Asian themed decor. Sliding panels have that special ability to be both wall and window at the same time. They filter light and provide privacy at the same time.
