Getting your windows replaced can be a little scary, stressful, and overwhelming when you’re first getting started. The more you learn about it though the easier it becomes. Here is some basic knowledge about getting replacement windows with us.
STYLES OF WINDOWS
Single Hung Window- Single-hung windows are raised from the bottom for ventilation, while the top sash remains stationary
Double Hung Windows- Double-hung windows can be raised from the bottom or lowered from the top for two levels of ventilation. The sashes also lean in for convenient cleaning.
Awning Windows- Awning windows are hinged at the top and swing outward from the bottom. They glide open and shut with the turn of one easy-to-reach handle. Awning windows are often placed above or below other windows to add light or architectural interest.
Hopper Window- A hopper window is similar to an awning window, except that it vents at the top and opens into your room instead of out. It is usually placed above other doors and windows for extra light and ventilation.
Casement Windows- Casement windows are hinged at the sides and swing outward. They provide a clear view to the outdoors plus open and close easily with the turn of a handle. They are often used in more difficult places to reach.
Sliding Windows- Sliding windows open horizontally for easy access to fresh air.
Bay Windows – Bay windows are typically a fixed window in the center joined together with your choice of venting windows on each side.
Bow Windows – Four or more windows joined together to form a graceful curve. Choose fixed windows, or any combination of venting windows.
Tilt-Turn Window- Tilt-turn windows offer European styling and dual functionality. The sash opens two ways, giving you ventilation flexibility. Simply turn the handle 90 degrees to swing the window sash open into your room for a clear view and a full breeze. Or, if you want just a little fresh air, a 180-degree turn of the handle tilts the sash in to vent from the top.
Specialty windows and special shapes such as circles, triangles, and arches are also available.
Vinyl windows are the most popular window choice. They are easy to care for and energy-efficient. Vinyl windows won’t need painting, staining or refinishing. They have fully welded sashes and frames that add strength and durability.
Wood windows offer beauty and comfort. Wood is not only beautiful, it’s a natural insulator from the heat and cold, to help keep you more comfortable all year. Wood also gives you more design options, including interior and exterior colors, shapes, sizes and between-the-glass blinds, shades and grilles.
Fiberglass windows are high performing, low-maintenance windows that have the quality look of painted wood. They are durable, patented fiberglass composite that can withstand extreme heat and subzero cold. And, they are highly energy efficient.
Aluminum windows provide a virtually maintenance-free exterior that resists the elements. Its high-definition details and versatility gives us the ability to provide any color you can imagine in practically any shape.
