Monterey Park Replacement Windows

Monterey Park replacement windows that slide open horizontally are the most commonly thought of by most everybody. While these are perfectly fine options when selecting window replacement, there is another variety you might prefer. Double and single hung California window replacements are similar in look, but can be a better fit for your home.

Single Hung

To visualize single hung CA window replacements, simply take your standard horizontal slider and stand it up on its side. While a simplistic way of thinking about it, this is a fairly good description of what a single hung window is. Single hung types are those that are fixed on one pane, and slide up or down on the other.

There are many reasons a person might prefer single hung Monterey Park replacement windows to the horizontal slider variety. First, the single hung type tends to be thinner and taller, while the sliders are wider and shorter. This can be beneficial in many instances.

For example, in a small Monterey Park room, two single hung windows can be installed as replacement for one large horizontal slider. Two windows separated by wall space can help to make a CA room feel larger. Additionally, they can add to the ventilation of a room. Opening two California replacement windows on either side of a room ventilates more areas in the room than one single large window does. This option can really add charm and functionality to your room.

Another instance in which a single hung Monterey Park replacement might be better than a slider is when the wall that the window is on is tall in height. A taller wall will be better accentuated by windows that are also higher in length. This will bring more of the focus to that nice high wall, and really open your California oom up. Again, the single hung Monterey Park replacement windows can be more spread out, and you might even benefit from having more of them than the horizontal ones you are replacing. You would be surprised at how much better a wall looks when two horizontal sliders are replaced with three or four (or even five) smaller (yet taller) single hung frames.

All this talk of replacing one or two Monterey Park windows with three or more might have you seeing dollar signs. Of course, any time you are ordering Monterey Park replacement windows of a different shape or style than you currently have there will be an added cost. The key is to determine what improvements cost the least while adding the most value. Sometimes the added value cannot be calculated in a monetary form. There are times when you have to decide how much more you will like the new look, and then determine if the extra cost is worth your extra happiness with your Monterey Park replacement windows. If the tradeoff seems worthwhile, go for it.

Another thing to consider when deciding whether to make structural changes for your Monterey Park replacement windows is whether or not you can save money when choosing your CA contractor. Many window sellers in the Monterey Park area will complete the remodel part of the job for you. However, a lot of the time they will charge you more than a Monterey Park home remodeler will.

The reason for the extra cost is usually (and honestly) to dissuade you from using them. They are more than happy to make the extra money if you are willing to pay it, but these companies exist solely for the purpose of turning a profit installing Monterey Park replacement windows. Tacking on extra work like filling in old window frames and building out new ones detracts from their time to do their normal business.

Once you get a price quote from your Monterey Park replacement installer for the necessary work, contact a few handymen and construction companies. Tell them what you are looking to do and ask for a quote. This way you will know how reasonable the quote is from the installer, and then you can decide who to hire to complete that work. Hopefully you can save yourself some money in the process.

Double Hung

There is even another alternative to both horizontal sliders and single hung Monterey Park replacement windows. The double hung variety is very similar to the single hung type. The main difference is that where a single hung window has only one moving pane of glass, the double hung has two.

Double hung windows can be an excellent choice for your replacement because there are several combinations in which they can be opened. In addition to this, they also contain all the benefits that their single hung counterparts have. Any way you slice it, either of these choices would be an excellent pick for your Monterey Park replacement windows.
