    7/20/2010 12:00 AM

    When you decide to upgrade your home with replacement windows, you have many choices available.  You need to decide if you want to replace your old window with a similar style, or change the style to give your home a facelift, both inside and out.   Basic window types available include:   Single hung – only the bottom sash moves up and down, while the upper sash remains fixed. Double hung – both the top and bottom sashes move; many have a tilt-in feature for easier cleaning. Slider – windows open side to side; allow maximum visible light when closed and maximum ventilation when opened. Casement – windows that swing open to the sides fully for ventilation; can be installed singly or in combination to build a bay window. Awning – windows that swing out from the bottom; good ventilation while keeping rain out. Hopper – windows that swing in at the top; often used for basement light and ventilation.   To learn more about the beautiful window options Thompson Creek offers, visit
