This type of window is top-hinged and has a modern look. By keeping the hinge at the top, it helps homeowners to let in fresh air even when it is raining.
One of the most energy efficient windows possible are the awning windows, as they close inward and form a tight seal with compression weather stripping.
The bow and bay windows are the ideal choice if you are looking for a larger opening. What’s the difference between those two?
Typically, four or more windows that join together to form a curve are bow windows. If you are searching for an alternative where your window formation can open and close, this is the choice for you.
Bay windows, on the other hand, consist of 3 windows, such as a picture window, with the middle window locked. A combination of casement or double-hung windows are the other 2 sides, allowing the space to let fresh air in.
Casement windows are hinged on the left or right side of the sash. Single-panel windows can be opened either inward or outward, while double-panel casement windows typically open inward. A well-designed casement window can seal securely when closed, decreasing air leakage.
A crank or lever should be opened in this type of window, with the option of placing it at either the bottom edge of the panel or the height of the hand.
A double hung window is a window that has two sashes that go up and down. The bottom slides up, and the top slides down, thus boosting the flow of air.
Usually, double hung windows have a simple window design that makes it simple for you to clean, since both sashes tilt in for easier access to the inner and outer surfaces of the glass.
The most versatile sort of window is the double slider window. They have two sashes sliding from side to side, providing the flexibility to open both sashes simultaneously, providing full air circulation.
Double slider windows can be cleaned very quickly because the sashes can be pulled to give you access to the outside of the window. And when you are finished cleaning it, the sash can be pushed back into its place.
With their classical appearance, single hung windows add traditional elegance and personality to your home. In these windows, two sashes are open, one top that is stationary and one bottom that can slide vertically.
Single hung windows are the perfect choice for homeowners who are trying to preserve their house’s architectural or historical integrity.
These windows have a single slider that moves from one side to the other.These windows have one stationary window and one sliding window sash, to optimise the glass space for better ventilation.
Sliding windows are a great choice for enhancing ventilation in close and horizontal spaces in both classical and contemporary architecture.
