"What kinds of exterior windows are there?"
Single and Double Hung Windows
Single Hung Windows allow for air ventilation through a single functional lower sash. The upper portion of the window permanently fixed. Whereas Double Hung Windows have two operating sashes that move up and down vertically. This allows for air ventilation from the top and bottom separately, or both simultaneously.
Single and Double Slider Windows
Single Slider windows have one sash permanently fixed, while the other slides horizontally. A Double Slider Window has two sliding sashes at either side of the window. You can open each of them individually, or open them both at same time for well- designed efficient air ventilation. Easy to operate, simple to clean.
Tilt and Turn Windows can be opened inwards like how a casement window does. They can also be tilted from the bottom, so that the top of the window is angled inward. You can use the window in this position for air ventilation, or to clean your windows inside and out!
Casement windows are hinged on one side. The sash opens opposite the hinge, horizontally. When you open your Casement Window it allows for full air ventilation, from top to bottom. When you open the window you can angle and direct the air flow into your home. Allowing for optimal air circulation.
Awning Windows are hinged at the top, the sash swings outward from the bottom. This allows for air ventilation, even during light rain. Awning Windows look amazing when paired with a large Picture Window below it. Maximizing your view and air flow, or to create a stunning feature in any room.
Bay and Bow Windows
Create a design focal point that adds beauty, form and function, custom-built to fit your home. Bay and Bow windows allow more light to come in and also adds a bit of extra space to your room. We fabricate our Bay Windows and Bow Windows by joining three (or more) windows side-by-side in a frame, built at an angle out from your home. Depending on the design you can choose from Casement Windows, Single Hung Windows or Picture Windows.
Picture windows are permanently fixed stationary windows. Although they don't open, they provide exceptional views and allow for large sizes. Since there's no moving parts, these windows are typically more economical and energy efficient.
Decorative windows are a permanently fixed window in frame. Consider options like a curved or angled window by themselves or paired with other windows to add a dynamic feature to any room. Decorative Windows come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, colors and designs. A Decorative Window can add timeless elegance and charm to your living space.
Typically found above the kitchen sink, Garden Windows have a stationary window located in front with a shelved bottom, and two functional windows on either side. A Garden Window provides an attractive space to display plants and pictures. They work similarly to the way a greenhouse does because of the way their glass is structured and it's overall design. You can grow herbs indoors, or grow flowers all year-round by capturing the sun’s rays in your Garden Window. Get all of the benefits of an indoor greenhouse while adding functionality and outstanding air ventilation.
Basement and Hopper Windows
Basement Windows are meant for use level with, or below grade. They are hinged at the top so that the window to be opened inward. This allows for air ventilation and natural light to come into your basement. Hopper Windows can be installed above the ground level, and the hinge is located at the bottom of the window. With hopper windows, you can get more air circulation because the window opens up completely.
