Which Window is Right For You?


If you are renovating your space or starting a DIY project, you might be thinking about the right window for your home. With so many different windows to choose from, it can be overwhelming to decide which type of window is right for you. Keep reading to learn about the different types of windows and decide which one is best for your project.

Types of Windows


Wood Windows

Wooden windows are a beautiful and traditional choice for a home. Wood has a high level of insulation that will keep your space warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Since wood is a durable natural material, wooden windows are a great choice for any sustainable home. Wooden windows will require regular maintenance to ensure they do not become warped, retain moisture, or become infested with pests. The price of a wood sliding frame window depends on its size, but the average price at our store, EcoBuilding Bargains, ranges from $199 for a 70" wide window and $646 for a 79" wide window. Check EcoBuilding Bargains to find wooden windows that meet your needs

Aluminum Windows

Aluminum windows will not be the best choice for homeowners who live in areas that regularly experience extremely cold temperatures, since they have high levels of heat loss. However, aluminum windows are long-lasting, affordable, and generally low maintenance, aside from in waterfront homes. Salt water can corrode aluminum, so if you live by the ocean, aluminum windows will require more upkeep than in other areas.  

Fiberglass Windows

Do you want a strong, energy efficient window that will last through any weather? Fiberglass windows are a great choice. Because fiberglass is so durable and waterproof, these windows can use less material and still perform at a high level in your home. Just make sure to invest in proper installation: because fiberglass is so rigid and requires UV coating to protect against the sun, fiberglass isn’t the best choice for DIY home renovators.
