If you’re deciding on your next home remodeling project, one upgrade you may want to consider making is replacement windows. Windows are one of the most important investments you can make for your home for a number of reasons, and upgrading your old ones with new, beautiful, energy-efficient products will benefit your home in many wonderful ways.

Then again, choosing the right products for a window installation may be a bit more complicated than you’d think. There are countless models to choose from, each with its own list of pros and cons, and deciding on the perfect one takes a bit of research, expertise, and some design talent, too.

If you’re trying to decide on a window replacement for your home, it’s normal to feel a bit overwhelmed with the process. That’s why our professional team at Southwest Exteriors is here to help, with expert solutions for our customers hoping to improve their homes with gorgeous, custom replacement windows.

To help you get inspired for your window replacement project, here are some of our customer’s favorite models, straight from our inventory of high-quality window products at Southwest Exteriors.


Some of Our Most Popular Window Types

While our windows are fully customizable, and the design possibilities are endless, here are some of the most popular types that homeowners choose when selecting a product from our extensive selection of high-quality window products:

  • Awning Windows: These practical and stylish windows offer homeowners the ability to open your windows for some fresh air—even when it’s pouring outside.
  • Bay Windows: Bay windows are one of the most gorgeous options for homeowners hoping to add serious beauty and value to their homes. With three-way viewing windows that add plenty of natural light, bay windows are elegant additions to any home.
  • Picture Windows: For views as pretty as a picture, picture windows are a great choice. Similar to bay windows, picture windows let in plenty of light, but act more like picture frames than bay windows, as they’re unable to open or close.
  • Double-Hung Windows: Perhaps our most popular window model is the double-hung window, which offers exceptional energy-efficiency and practicality.
  • Garden Windows: Add a garden window to any area of your home to enhance your property’s curb appeal. These quaint, beautifully-constructed windows extend away from the home’s construction and offer a perfect, charming place for growing flowers, herbs, or anything else you have in mind.


Of course, this list of some of our favorite and most popular window choices isn’t complete, and there are many more types to choose from. Explore our inventory of stunning selections, including vinyl windows, bow windows, casement windows, slider windows, and so many more at Southwest Exteriors.
