Below are some of the different types of windows we can install and repair for you.
Awning windows are hinged at the top, so they open outward. They allow ventilation even during light rain. Since these windows allow for ventilation, they are often used in a room where ventilation is lacking.
Awning windows are also known as cracking windows because they are opened using a cranking mechanism. They are often smaller than other types of windows, so they work well in small spaces. When you need awning window repair, Lebanon Glass can help you.
Single Hung Window
In the case of a single hung window, you have an upper and lower sash similar to a hung window. However, in a single hung window, you can only open the bottom panel of the window. The top panel is fixed in place and remains stationary.
Single-hung windows are becoming more common especially in new homes and offices since they look great. They are less likely to leak, and they are more affordable, that’s why they are an excellent option for your home.
If you need single hung window repair, you can trust the team at Lebanon Glass to handle it for you.
Double Hung Windows
Both double-hung windows and single-hung windows are considered vertical sliding windows. They both have an upper and lower sash. With a double-hung window, you can slide both sashes up and down, which is different from the single-hung window.
Double-hung windows are very common since they have certain benefits. First, they are easy to clean. Double-hung windows have a tilt-in design that makes it very easy to clean the outside of the windows from indoors.
Casement windows are similar to awning windows. However, casement windows have side-mounted hinges. This means that casement windows crank out to the side instead of up as awning windows do.
Casement windows are also excellent for ventilation, and they have a crank and lever that hold them in place, so they aren’t blown open further by the wind.
Casement windows are also an excellent choice if you want a nice view since they have few or no muntins.

Things to Consider When Choosing Replacement Windows
Below is a quick guide to what you should look for when choosing the right replacement window for your home.
If you are replacing an old window, you might want a replacement window in the same style and design. However, no rule says you have to do that. Instead, you can choose a replacement window in a different style to give your home a fresh look. Here are some basic window styles to choose from:
When choosing a new window, look for ones that complement your home’s architecture. Contemporary homes generally have casement and slier windows while a traditional house looks excellent with the awning or double-hung windows. If you have a farmhouse-style home, it would look amazing with bay or bow windows.
Older windows are mostly single panes, and having to replace them may be a blessing in disguise since you now have the opportunity to choose energy-efficient windows. Double or triple-paned windows will do a much better job at keeping your energy costs low. They are also excellent in noise reduction.
When looking for replacement windows, look for products that guarantee weathertight construction. Look for excellent craftsmanship by ensuring the windows have been fusion-welded for strength and durability. Check if the glass is effective at blocking harmful UV rays.
Ask the replacement window supplier about their installation guarantee. Ask about their installation process during the winter months. Ask also the number of people who will install your windows and the duration of the installation.
Window Frame Material
When looking for replacement windows, compare window frame materials. They are not all created equal. Consider the frame’s insulating value, energy efficiency, and how easy it will be for you to maintain it.
