Milgard® is definitely here to help you every stage of the way. Seeing that wood is exposed to the elements, years of growth and contraction will have its toll. But even if your hardwood house windows have aged significantly this may still be an alternative to have them restored. A reliable window fitter may completely dismantle your home windows, re-adjust, re-align and service all joins. This will return the graceful operation and draught stopping ability that was originally intended.
We would never claim that timber is maintenance no cost but if wood is definitely the only option or you love the look, after that we offer the most advanced stains on the market. Impressive stain finishes upon all our hardwood window structures highlights beauty of the normal grain, which provides an traditional look with timeless elegance and uncompromising style. Alternatively, we offer a great range of paint finishes on our softwood timber providing a more contemporary finish.
Double hung windows are the better option by an utility and maintenance standpoint. They are more versatile and easier to clean. You can get to each sash easily and clean both the outside and inside of the window easily from inside your home. You can also tilt the windows to allow a breeze in more effectively than you can with single hung windows.
An alternative method is to determine an optimum window mounting angle that accounts for summer season sun load minimization, with consideration of actual latitude of the building. This technique has been implemented, to get example, inside the Dakin Building in Brisbane, California —in which the majority of the fenestration is usually designed to reflect summer time heat load and help prevent summer interior over-illumination and glare, simply by canting windows to practically a 45 degree angle.
