Whether you plan on building a new home, renovating an existing house or simply replacing some windows, there are many choices and options available. From all the choices for location, size, type, style, function, operation, material, finish, hardware and assembly, allows each and every client to customize their options to match the desired style of their home. So here’s a look at some of the options you have, especially with regard for function and operation.
Awning Windows are hinged at the top and open outward to let fresh air in while keeping the rain out. Because an awning pivots up and out, the sash effectively creates a mini awning that prevents the rain from coming through the window opening.
The window is a single sash that’s attached to a frame on one side. Hinges, or a hinge, is used to make the attachment, allowing the window to swing exactly like a door allowing for the greatest amount of circulation. But a casement window invariably only swings out.
This window will either tilt in at the top (being hinged at the bottom) or swing in (hinged along one side). A lever is used to engage or disengage the hinging system so that either the window tilts in at the top, or swings in from the side. These windows are an excellent choice where there’s a desire for an easy-to-clean window that can meet building code requirements and just be open a slight bit when some fresh air is desired.
French Casement Windows
This window provides a large opening with no vertical element to split the opening when the window is open. A French casement allows the design to have a visually consistent casement size throughout the project while also ensuring that the window opening meets the minimum standards of the building code.
Double & Single-Hung Windows
The double-hung window, along with its cousin the single-hung window, is just about the most common window there is. As its name implies, the window is made of two independent sashes that are hung in a frame. The sashes, one at the bottom and one at the top, can slide up and down within this frame or, as in the case of a single-hung window, only one sash will be movable.
Fixed Frame Windows
Fixed Frame Windows are non-venting (do not open) and are available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and styles.
Sliding Windows open from both the left and the right and open to allow for maximum air ventilation. The sliding or gliding window functions much like a double-hung window. The big difference is that the sash will slide horizontally rather than vertically. It’s as if a double-hung is placed on its side.
Entry Doors & Entry Door Systems
Entry Doors can enhance the overall look and image that is wanted for your style of home.
French Doors are often used as an entry way to a patio or deck, they also create a stylish way to divide rooms.
Sliding Doors require much less space that a hinged door, and come in many different styles to best fit your homes look.
