Form, Function & Fit…

Exploring different window styles & types for your home

If you are building a new home, your builder or architect will probably help you through selecting what type of window is right for your home, but if you are replacing windows, keep in mind that you can be creative! An old opening for a double hung window may have new life as a casement window. Opening up a wall with a new picture, bay or bow window is a great way to add new life to your remodel. It may seem like a simple place to start, but understanding these different types of windows, their operation, and best application is great foundational knowledge when selecting new windows for your home.

Double Hung Windows

Featuring two operable sashes, sliding both up and down, the convenience of a double hung window with a tilt-in feature offers easy access for cleaning.

Single Hung Windows

With two sashes, but just one operable opening from the bottom up, single hung windows provide an economical choice with simpler style and operation.

Casement Windows

A single sash choice for clear views and easy operation, casements are hinged on the side and operate with a hand crank making them ideal for difficult to reach spaces.

Awning Windows

Similar in operation to a casement window, awning windows are hinged on the top and are often used to create a versatile and unique look when paired with other styles of windows.

Gliding Windows

Also called a slider window, gliders are a great choice for use by a deck or porch because they do not protrude outward, while double gliders create excellent circulation.

Picture Windows

For expansive views, a picture window is typically a large, inoperable option – pair it with gliders or casements on each side and you can create an attractive feature in your home.

Bay & Bow Windows

Bay and bow windows are particularly popular on the front of a home, decorative in nature, they extrude outward and are comprised of a series of fixed or operable windows.

Round Top Windows

A popular style to add architectural interest, round top windows offer arched and half moon options that add style and beauty to any home.

Specialty Shapes

The options are endless with custom window shapes and sizes, create drama and detail with specialty shaped windows in your home.
