Types of Windows We Install
Here are the types of windows we install and how they function:
- Single hung – features one movable sash that is opened and closed by sliding up and down
- Double hung – similar to single hung but with two movable sashes to emphasize ventilation
- Awning – swings open from hinges at the top to allow airflow even when it’s raining
- Sliding – smoothly glides open and closed from side to side
- Bay and bow – three or more windows that are attached to form a single unit that projects outward and creates an attractive architectural element
- Picture – a stationary window that is perfect for allowing natural light into hard-to-reach spaces
- Casement – crank-operated and swings open like a door
- Specialty – custom sizes and shapes to add a touch of flair to your home’s curb appeal

Customizing Your New Replacement Windows
Choosing the ideal window style for different locations in your home is an important step in the plan for your new window project, but there are other factors we’ll help bring to your attention as window professionals. For example, you can select from vinyl, fiberglass, wood, or composite frames. Each has its own benefits, and we’ll help you determine which is best for your budget and expectations of performance. From there, we can finish the design with your preferred hardware and exterior/interior colors.
Can You Make them Energy Efficient?
Choosing a style that you like shouldn’t sacrifice the opportunity to save energy costs. Our single and double hung windows, featuring one and two movable sashes, are great for ventilation and can be equipped with double or triple-pane glass for improved insulation. Sliding windows glide smoothly and can also be optimized with insulated frames and tinting. Bay and bow, awning and picture windows can be made energy-efficient with the use of Low-E glass to maximize natural light and minimize heat. Casement windows are crank-operated and can be highly efficient when paired with energy-rated glass and insulated frames. All of these and even specialty windows can maintain energy efficiency with the appropriate materials and coatings.
