Do you feel cold drafts coming into your windows during the fall and winter? Are your energy bills through the roof? Do the sounds of your neighbors leaving for work in the early morning wake you? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it’s time to improve your quality of living with window replacements!
Not only can you resolve these issues, but you can also reduce maintenance, improve curb appeal, and provide overall greater comfort for you and your family. And since window replacements represent one of the highest returns on investment associated with home improvement, you may regain more than 78% of the project cost when you sell your home.
Choose from Various Window Styles for Your Home
As a top window company in Lancaster and Chester Counties, Twin Brook Construction is proud to partner with Marvin Windows for all your window needs! Marvin windows are a great option because of their proven quality, energy-efficient technology, superior insulation, strength, and durability. Plus, they have a wide array of window styles. Please choose from these types of windows and let us help you with the installation!
Double-hung windows incorporate movement of both the top and bottom portions of your window, but only one-half of the window can remain open at a time. They’re versatile and complement virtually any home style, plus they’re easy to clean and energy-efficient. They also readily accept screens and air conditioners. Double-hung windows aren’t as airtight as other windows, like casement windows, for example.
Single Hung Windows
With a single-hung window, only the bottom panel moves up and down while the top remains stationary. The best part about them? They are low cost. They’ll run you upwards of 20% less than a double-hung window. But those savings come with limitations, namely with limited ventilation and more difficulty in cleaning. A double-hung window may be a better option if you’re replacing your windows.
Bay & Bow Windows
Bay windows are angled out and away from the house and include three components—a large, fixed window in the center with two flanking windows. A bow window is a set of four to six windows projecting from your home’s exterior, but each is the same size. Because they are more symmetrical than a bay window, they create more of a curved appearance while also letting more light into a room.
Casement windows open sideways with a hand crank. They are one of the more weather-tight windows you can buy because the seal meets the window sash straight on. By the same token, they provide a good deal of ventilation while also being easy to clean. Unfortunately, they usually can’t accommodate AC units, and with continuous exposure to elements, their moving parts can wear out or break easily.
Corner windows are a single pane comprised of two more sashes that meet at a corner and span both sides of your house. Marvin’s Ultimate Corner windows offer panoramic views while providing a focal point for your home. While it requires special framing, our window installation company can ensure they are safe and secure. These windows are available in heights up to 12 feet and widths up to seven feet.
Picture windows provide a clear, unobstructed view of your surroundings. For that reason, they are large and have no glazing bars. They are made to look like a picture frame around your outdoor scenery. More often than not, picture windows are inoperable, which helps to make them highly energy-efficient. They provide lots of warm, natural light, perfect for many different areas in your home.
Often referred to as gliding windows, this window style has sashes that move left or right in either direction within a single frame. You can think of sliding windows as rotated double-hung windows that move left and right instead of up and down. Sliding windows require little maintenance, are durable, have good energy efficiency, and are easy to use. You’ll just have to go outdoors to clean their exterior.
Specialty Shape Windows
Polygons. Trapezoids. Triangles. You’re only limited by your imagination. Marvin’s windows, in particular, are great to work with when creating a one-of-a-kind window design. You’ll find plenty of options that fit your unique window opening, allowing you to relish all the benefits of new window installation. Energy efficiency, improved curb appeal, and less outside noise are a call away!

How Do I Choose the Right Window Type?
With such a broad selection of exterior windows, choosing the right window style for your window installation or replacement project can be intimidating. It pays to keep some of the following tips in mind when selecting replacement windows:
- Make sure your windows complement your home’s architectural style.
- Know the intended use of your windows. For example, will they add extra light, enhance an entryway, or be purely for ornament?
- Consider the color of your window frames and mullions—the vertical bar that forms a division between units of a window.
- Decide whether you want fixed windows versus operable windows for ventilation
- Determine the sun’s potential impact on heating, cooling, and even entertaining in relation to your windows.
These insights will help you decide which of these styles best fits your window replacement needs.
