Did you know there are certain types of windows for certain regions of the country? Whether you live in coastal regions that need hurricane-resistant glass or you’re building in the Midwest where the climate varies drastically between the seasons, there’s a style and type of window that’s best for you!
The Northeast region of the United States is known for being stunning and picturesque, especially in the winter when snow caps the hills, lakes and mountains. Windows such as Andersen Bay and Bow Windows allow you to view these sweeping landscapes. Bay and bow windows allow you to view the beauty of the outdoors from all angles of your home, while adding a touch of unique charm.
If you’re from the Midwest, you know how drastically the weather can change – and fast! On top of the flip-flopping temperatures, the Midwest is also known for occasional winds that can whip through the terrain. Windows that offer thermal protection from both hot and cold weather will be best for homes in this area.
Andersen Casement Windows can be made with Low-E insulated glass and still add a stylish touch to any home. Whether you have a small wall that needs one window for added ventilation, or plan on lining an entire room with large, horizontal windows for a great view, casement windows are the perfect option.
Living on any one of the United States’ coastlines automatically calls for a panoramic view. Update your sun porch with expansive, gliding windows or add a small picture window above the kitchen sink — make sure you can see that view from all areas of your home!
Being on the coast comes with the potential for tropical storms, hurricanes and high winds. Andersen’s Stormwatch® Protection windows can withstand Mother Nature’s unpredictable ways, while maintaining excellent style and function for your home.
Of course, there are many other regions across the country that have their own specific needs. Regardless of where you live, you should be able to feel comfortable and confident that the windows you’ve selected for your home will be functional and stylish. Andersen Windows from The Strait & Lamp Group have several style and glass options — guaranteed to match your home’s exact needs!
