Residential and Commercial Window Applications
Types of Windows
Double HungThe most popular type of window, most commonly used in traditional homes. Two sections of framed glass sliding bottom up, or top down.
CasementThis window is hinged on the side, and swings inward or outward like a door, letting air flow freely.
GliderDesigned especially for horizontal operation. Glass-framed panels slide open on tracks, so there’s no lifting involved.
AwningHinged on top and swings outward, so you can leave it open when it rains. Often placed higher for added privacy and natural light.
Bay And BowBays feature a fixed center window, with venting windows angled on the sides. Bows are made up of a series of windows connected in a gentle curve.
Tilt TurnDual-function window with two methods of operation; swings in like a door or tilts in from the top for ventilation, both with one-handed control.
Replacement Window ConsiderationsWhen choosing replacement windows, keep in mind window location and access needs. Remember, you can replace a window with a different type that’s better suited for the space.
- Casements for hard to reach places—like over a kitchen sink
- Tilt Turns… an alternative to a balcony door, or for an emergency exit option
- Double Hung windows are easy to clean from the inside with tilt-in wash mode
- Gliders are a good choice when space doesn’t allow for swinging windows
- Specialty windows in various shapes can add drama to larger spaces
