Types of Replacement Windows

Single/Double Hung Windows

Single-hung and double-hung windows are very similar to each other; with just one major exception. Both sashes on double-hung windows are operable, meaning they both move up and down. On single-hung windows, however, the top sash is fixed in place while only the bottom sash remains operable. The benefit of having a double-hung window, rather than a single-hung, is that it is easier to clean and maintain.

Picture Windows

Picture windows are fixed windows that do not open. They are usually installed in places that are difficult to reach, where ventilation is not a concern.  Picture windows are often used to let in light or reduce drafts in areas of a room that may be prone to it. They can be used alone, or combined with other windows, to create a portrait-like space on the wall – hence the word “picture” in their name.

Awning/Hopper Windows

Awning windows open from the bottom and swing upward via a crank. Hopper windows open from the top and swing inward. They are primarily used in basement applications.

Sliding Windows

A sliding window is a window that opens by sliding the panes on a track in the frame. It’s a good choice when the size of the window is much wider than it is tall. These windows are available in a single slider with one moveable sash, a 2-lite slider where both sashes move, and a 3-lite slider for large openings. 3-lite slider windows have a fixed picture window in the center with operable window sliders on each end.

Casement Windows

Casement windows are hinged on one side and open with a crank handle on the other. This handle is used to swing the window open;  away from your home and towards the outside. Casement windows also provide maximum ventilation.

Single/Double Hung Windows

Single-hung and double-hung windows are very similar to each other; with just one major exception. Both sashes on double-hung windows are operable, meaning they both move up and down. On single-hung windows, however, the top sash is fixed in place while only the bottom sash remains operable. The benefit of having a double-hung window, rather than a single-hung, is that it is easier to clean and maintain.
