Windows Buying Guide
What Are Your Needs?
There are many different types of windows that make up the construction of your house. Windows allow natural light to flood your rooms during the day and let in air to keep it fresh and dry. Your windows also help define the style of your house whether it is traditional or modern.
Single & Double Hung Window
This type of window has two sashes that slide vertically up and down in the frame. They can open wide from either the top or the bottom, but they remain inside the frame so they don’t protrude out to the exterior or interior of the house. On a single-hung window, only the bottom part of the window operates while the top part remains stationary
These hinged windows operate by a turn of a crank in an operating mechanism. They can be hinged on the left or the right to open outward.
Hinged at the top, awning windows open outward to let in air from the left or right and the bottom. They can be installed above, below or alongside a stationary or operating window.
Gliding along a track, sliding windows have at least one operating window that slides horizontally over or past the other window. They are most often used in modern- or contemporary-style houses.
Bay or Bow Windows
Generally, bay or bow windows give you more interior space, as they protrude out from the exterior of the siding of the house. They are a combination of windows often with a stationary window in the middle flanked by either double-hung windows or casements.
