Window Types & Styles

Awning Window

Awning Windows

Awning windows consist of a series of vertically arranged, top-hinged rectangular sections; designed to admit air while excluding rain. Typically these windows are used in traditional homes, garden-level and basement areas and wet climates.

Bay or Bow Window

Bay/Bow Windows

Bay window is a generic term for all protruding window constructions. They are most commonly polygonal (half of a hexagon) or square, but they may also be curved, in which case they may also be called bow windows.

Casement Window

Casement Windows

A casement window (or casement) is a window that is attached to its frame by one or more hinges. Casement windows are hinged at the side and open outward similar to a cabinet door. Many traditional and classic style homes have been installed with casement windows.

Single-hung Window

Single-Hung Windows

A single hung window has two sashes but normally the top sash is fixed and only the bottom sash slides. "Single-hung" windows operate the same as "double-hung" windows, but their upper sash is fixed in place. Great for traditional or modern homes and hey are very efficient.

Double-hung Window

Double-Hung Windows

"Double-hung" windows are a modern take on the common traditional window. They have an upper sash and a lower sash, both of which slide up and down in the window opening. This provides flexibility with ventilation options, especially considering window treatments and maintenance.

Energy Efficiency & Insulation

Of course there are plenty of insulation & energy efficiency options as well like using Argon/Krypton gas filled panes. In short, Argon/Krypton filled windows are more efficient, because the gas is more dense than "air" and conducts less heat than "air." This makes it a more optimal heat transfer barrier. These gases are noble elements and are completely harmless, odorless, and non-reactive.

Choosing Your Windows

We take into account several factors when helping you decide which windows and styles will be the best for you and your home. Here are a few of the criteria we take into consideration in addition to having a conversation with you and understanding what you are aiming for as well.

  • Climate
  • Home Location
