The style of window that you select will also determine the final price you pay for replacement. There are two main types of windows – sliding or crank operated. Crank operated windows, such as awning, casement, single- or double-hung windows can cost up to 20% more than slider windows. This is because crank operated windows provide a compression seal rather that simply utilizing weatherstripping.
Each window style has different application requirements and restrictions, which is important to factor in when making your window selections. Window style cannot be chosen based solely on pricing, but rather building restrictions, personal needs, aesthetics, and budget all need to be considered.
