Contemporary style with an increased amount of light and larger view. Casement windows have become more common in more recent buildings, beginning in the late 1980s. Casement windows swing open in the same fashion a door would, hinged at the frame and swinging outwards. Casement windows offer a better air seal than the more traditional double hung windows because the lock mechanism pulls the window sash tight into the weather seal, compressing it to create a tighter seal, while hung windows do not have this ability. Our casement windows operate with a turn crank and feature multi-point locking mechanisms.
vAwning windows are similar to casement windows in that they are hinged and open outward. The major difference between awning and casement windows is that awning windows are hinged at the top of the frame rather than on the side of the frame. Awning windows are also typically used above or below a window, or above doors. Awning windows are usually wider than they are tall, but can be customized to virtually any size.
Hung windows give your home a more traditional appearance. Single hung windows are a very simple window, made of an upper and lower panel. The upper panel is fixed while the lower panel slides up and down to allow for ventilation. Since there is only one operating panel, there is a screen only on the operating half of the window.
Double hung windows have two operating sashes, the top and bottom sashes slide up and down, compared one operator in a single hung window. Double hung windows also have a feature that allows the sashes to swing in, allowing for easy cleaning of the exterior glass panel. The screen spans the whole face of the window in double hung windows, because of the two operating sashes.
Slider windows have one or more panels that slide horizontally. These windows are commonly used as basement windows where ventilation is needed.
Bay windows are multi-paneled windows (usually three panels) that are angled in order to create a protrusion out of your home to fully capture the view of the outdoors. Bay windows usually have a fixed panel as the centre, and two operators (double hung or casement) as the outside panels. Bow windows are similar to bay windows except they contain four or more operating or fixed casement windows to form a more gradual curve.
Fixed windows are windows that cannot be opened. They come in a variety of different shapes to suit your home, including; octagons, hexagons, trapezoids, half rounds, full rounds, quarter rounds, ovals, ellipses, triangles, parallelograms, etc. They can be used to accent your home, or allow a huge amount of natural light into your home.
