This type of window has a stylish appearance and is hinged at the top. By retaining the hinge at the top, it helps homeowners to let in fresh air, regardless of whether it is raining or not.
One of the most energy efficient windows available is awning windows, as they close inward and form a tight seal with compression weather stripping.
The bow and bay windows are the perfect option if you are looking for a broader opening than your standard choice. What is the difference between the two of them?
Bow windows are usually four or more windows that connect together to form a curve. If you are searching for an option where your multi-window formation has the ability to open and close, this is the choice for you.
Bay windows, on the other hand, consist of 3 windows with the middle window being fixed, such as a picture window. Usually, a combination of casement or double-hung is the other 2 sides, providing the opportunity to let in fresh air.
Casement windows are hinged on either the left or right side of the sash. Single-panel casement windows can open either inward or outward, while double-panel casement windows usually open inward. A well-designed casement window can seal securely when closed, decreasing air leakage.
A crank or lever must be opened in this type of window, with the option of positioning it at either the bottom edge of the window 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 increasing the movement of air.
Double hung windows are usually a simple window design that allows us to clean easily, since both sashes tilt in for easy access to the inner and outer surfaces of the glass.
The most versatile kind of window is double slider windows. They have two sashes sliding from side to side, providing the flexibility to open both sashes simultaneously, offering full air circulation.
Cleaning double slider windows are very simple as the sashes can be pulled to give you access to the outside of the window. When you are finished cleaning, the sash can be pushed back into place.
With their classical appearance, single hung windows add traditional charm and character to your home. Of these windows, there are two sashes, one stationary top and one vertical slider bottom.
Single hung windows are the perfect choice for homeowners looking to preserve their house’s architectural or historical integrity.
The single-slider windows move along a track that enables the windows to shift from one side to the other side. These windows have one stationary window and one sliding window sash, to maximize the glass space for better ventilation.
Sliding windows are a great choice for enhancing ventilation in close and horizontal spaces, used in both classical and contemporary architecture.
