The ranch-style home is one of the most popular domestic architectural styles in the country. A&A Services Home Improvement, your local window replacement contractor, can provide our customers with the highest quality window units that work best with this home style. Read on for some tips to keep in mind when pursuing this project.
Consider Historical Accuracy
Certain window styles look best when installed on homes with a particular architectural style. As such, when choosing new units for a ranch-style home, the style must be consistent with the overall aesthetic. Take note of the prominent architectural features of this house style, including the emphasis on the use of horizontal lines.
Make It More Open
Ranch-style homes were one of the first “open-concept” homes, which means they have an open floor plan. This type of floor plan allows for a greater utilization of natural light. For your window replacement project, consider replacement windows with expansive glass to help distribute more sunlight to your interior.
Use Man-Made Materials
Ranch homes are built using man-made materials, making them one of the first modern homes at the height of their popularity. Rather than pursue wood windows, consider other frame materials such as fiberglass, vinyl and composite.
Best Window Choices
As for window types, choose picture windows. While they are inoperable, they showcase cleaner lines that will better match the overall design of ranch homes. When ventilation is a necessity, however, consider casement windows. They crank open along hinges mounted on one side and feature smooth, uninterrupted lines. Both window styles offer large glass areas, as well.
