3 S’s of the Right Replacement Windows

Choosing new windows for your home can be overwhelming—between aesthetics, energy efficiency, and performance, there are many factors to consider. At Renewal by Andersen® of Westchester, we want to simplify the decision-making process for you. When choosing your replacement windows, we recommend focusing on the three S’s: style, size, and shape. Let’s take a closer look at each one.


This refers to the type of window as well as its operation. Double-hung units comprise two sashes that move vertically. Sliding windows are similar, except they glide horizontally. If you want your new windows to complement the architectural design of your home, style plays a crucial role. Most architectural styles have trademark window types that you must adhere to if you want to retain your home’s authentic beauty.

Style defines the utility and aesthetic value of your replacement units. Choosing the right style of windows for every room is a huge part of your project’s success.


Window size is relative to glass area. More glass means more outdoor view and daylighting. When used strategically, your windows can open up your space and make your room look and feel larger. The amount of glass your windows have can dramatically transform the appearance of your home and boost its energy efficiency.


Replacement windows can come in many different shapes to add architectural flair to your home—you’re not limited to squares and rectangles. Portholes and keyholes can lend more interest to virtually any area, while arched transoms are always welcome addition to standalone or pairs of units. Specialty units provide an artistic touch to your space.

At Renewal by Andersen of Westchester, we offer a long list of window designs and customization options that are as functional as they’re stylish. We can also make our Fibrex® frames thinner to provide you with larger and clearer glass. Our specialty windows are available in a variety of configurations, allowing you to be as creative as you want with style, size, and shape.
