Window Styles

Replacement windows come in many shapes, sizes, and styles to match your home. There are several types of windows which include awning windows, bay and bow windows, casement windows, double-hung windows, fixed frame windows, sliding windows, and skylight windows. Each window differs in the way that it opens and looks. The type you choose will depend heavily on the purpose of the window. Is the window meant for energy savings? Are you just trying to let more light into the room?

One of the more common windows styles includes awning windows. Awning windows are commonly used for ventilation and are typically placed above or below a window or door. They are hinged at the top and the lower part of the window moves out. Casement windows are very similar expect it is a window unit in which the single sash levers outward to the right or left, as opposed to moving from top to bottom. Bay and bow windows protrude out from the wall and have three or more panes. The center window pane is commonly a fixed frame window. Fixed window frames consist of an immovable piece of glass that is set into the sash.

Other popular window styles include double hung and single hung windows. They are similar to each other in that they both have two sashes, top and bottom. However, with double-hung windows both sashes can move up and down and with single hung windows only one sash is movable. Lastly, sliding windows are pretty self explanatory in that they slide back and forth horizontally.
