- Picture Windows
An awning window, sometimes also called a project-out window, is a top-hinged style window outward opening window providing maximum airflow and ventilation. They sit horizontally and are usually installed above or below stationary windows. Awning windows are a versatile option and commonly used in basements.
Bay windows feature panels using several angles, to create an alcove. They are a perfect option for rooms that bring in natural light such as the dining room, living room, or bedroom. Bay Windows can add curb appeal and value as they instantly become a focal point and point of interest.
Bow windows, much like bay windows, are made up of four or more panels, creating a curved semi-circular shape. This option is flexible in terms of size, shape, and functionality and can provide an elegant and expansive view, not to mention an increased curb appeal.
These windows are the most popular style of window. Casement windows are hinged at the side and crank to the outside, providing a sophisticated yet practical style to your home. This window style is typically installed in the kitchen as they are easy to open and close as well as provides maximum airflow and ventilation.
Single Slider Windows
Single slider windows are a more simplified version of the double slider as you slide the windows horizontally to open and close. These windows are a cost-effective solution, highly secure, and easy to clean and maintain making these windows a practical option for many homeowners.
Double Slider Windows
These windows are common in most homes as they are easy to use and open both sides of the window allowing increased airflow into the home. Double slider windows are also low maintenance, simple to use, and easy to clean.
Single Hung Windows
Another common window style is single-hung windows. These windows are ideal for patios, sunrooms, or any other room in your home. They are versatile, simple to use, and typically have a traditional style sash for enhanced security. These windows come in a variety of styles, with a sleek and contemporary style, and are popular as they are low in maintenance.
Double Hung Windows
Double-hung windows are a classic style with amazing installation to help you save money on energy bills by keeping warmth inside. They typically have a full screen and two operable sashes to allow the window to move up and down. These windows provide functionality yet are very practical making them also a very popular style for most homes. These windows are ideal in smaller rooms, are easy to clean and maintain, and come in a variety of styles.
Picture windows, also known as fixed windows, are great for large openings that do not require a window to open, but rather enjoy expansive views from inside and outside of the home. These windows bring daylight into homes and are an excellent choice for framing views where ventilation is not a concern. Picture windows come in all styles, sizes, and shapes making them perfect and essential for architectural design.
