Horizontal sliding windows, as the name suggests, have an operable sash that slides open either to the left or to the right, depending on where you wish to direct the air flow in the room.  If you are considering larger windows, sliding windows are a very good option and are typically available in 2-lite, 3-lite, or 4-lite configurations.



Single hung windows, or vertical sliding windows, are windows where the top portion of the window is stationary and the operable lower sash slides up to open and allow ventilation.  Since single hung windows remain flush with the wall after installation, and open and close without protruding and interfering with walkable space, single hung windows are an excellent choice for rooms facing walkways, porches, or patios.



Casement windows are hinged on the right or left side, swing outward like a door, and provide maximum ventilation.  Most casement windows involve a crank, or operator, that is used to open and close the windows.  If you are installing windows over a sink, countertop, or appliance, or if you need emergency escape windows in a bedroom, casement windows can be the perfect solution.



Awning windows are hinged on the top and open outward and upward, enabling ventilation without letting in rain or falling leaves.  Awning windows are often used for hard to reach places because they can be placed high on the wall and easily open and close by turning the crank, or operator.  They are a great choice to pair with non-operable windows, such as above or below a picture window, since awning windows are generally smaller in size than single hung windows, sliding windows, or casements.



Specialty shape windows and geometric windows allow you to choose from a variety of uncommon shapes, including arch windows, octagons, triangles, trapezoids, and more.  They can be operable to let in fresh air, or fixed to only let in the natural light.  They provide a visual characteristic and increase visible light and enhance the curb appeal and character of your home.



Bay windows are manufactured by combining three windows together so that they angle out beyond the exterior wall of the house.  Due to the way that they are constructed, they provide an increased curb appeal by creating a dramatic accent and exterior dimension, allow for more light inside the room, and enlarge a room with extra space for furnishings and seating.  Bay windows feature a center picture window with operable windows on each side.  These side windows may be single hung or casement windows.



Garden windows, also known as “greenhouse windows”, extend out from the house and generally have an interior glass shelf for plants, herbs, or other decorative accents.  Due to the way that garden windows are constructed, they allow light to come from the top, the two sides, and the face of the window acting as a year-round greenhouse.  Garden windows are typically found in kitchens above the sink and have operable windows on each side for ventilation.
