Bay and bow windows project outward from the outside wall of the home. Bay and bow windows consist of multiple windows in one larger piece, with side windows angled anywhere from 30 to 90 degrees. This design creates the largest possible view, making them a great option for many homes. These types of windows maximize the amount of natural light in a room, provide a beautiful finished appearance, and even create and additional shelf to use as storage.
Casement windows are hinged on one end and pivot out to open. Casement windows open a full 90°, allowing for maximum airflow and ventilation. The design of casement windows also makes them very easy to clean from inside the home. Casement windows provide some of the best water resistance of any window style, and they also offer a fantastic finished appearance.
Double-hung windows are one of the most common types of windows. Both the upper and lower sashes open for ventilation, allowing for great air flow. Our double-hung windows come with an easy tilt-in sash that allows you to clean the entire surface of the window from the inside. Double-hung windows are a classic look that goes with any home design.
Double slider windows allow both ends of the window to slide inwards for extra airflow. Both sashes open inwards to allow for easy cleaning. This feature allows allows this style window to serve as an egress window (an emergency escape), which is required by code in bedrooms.
Picture windows are fixed units that generally do not slide or open. These windows are usually larger than other types of windows, allowing for a wide view and plenty of sunlight. Picture windows are a popular choice when looking to maximize natural light in a space that doesn't need the window to open, such as a foyer, hallway, or stairway. Picture windows also provide sound reducing qualities, making them a good fit for the front of a home on a busy road.
Awning windows have a hinged sash that tilts out from the bottom. The unique design of an awning window helps keep rain out when the window is open, allowing you to get ventilation no matter the weather. Awning windows are commonly installed over kitchen sinks or in bathrooms where extra privacy is desired.
Round top windows are a unique feature that adds extra curb appeal to your home. Round top windows are available in a variety of designs, and they are frequently installed over casement, double-hung, or sliding windows. If you're looking for extra light and a beautiful look, round top windows are a great choice.
