Double-Hung or Single-Hung Windows - Probably the most common type of window style, the double or single-hung window has two sashes, the framework part of the window that holds the glass and keeps it in place, a top and a bottom sash. In double-hung windows, the top and bottom sash both slide up and down inside the window frame. They can also be opened into the home to make cleaning the windows easier. For single-hung windows the top of the window is static and does not move, only the bottom sash slides up and down.

Casement Windows - Another very common style of window, this type uses a crank to open which pushes the window out from the frame from a bottom-mounted hinge. If you currently have casement windows you may have difficulty with these cranks but there has been much improvement in the design of this style of window in the past few decades.

Picture Windows - Just as the sound, this style of window creates a large picture of the outdoors for you to enjoy. Large sections of glass that do not open, picture windows are great for creating an open feeling in your home and letting in a fantastic amount of natural light. 

Bay Windows - Also known as bow windows, are those where the frame of the window is constructed to protrude from the straight line of a home’s exterior wall. It is actually the construction of the window framing that gives these windows their name rather than the window itself as bay windows can be casement, double-hung, or something else. A bay window can give you more interior space in your home and is often used for extra seating or even storage. 

Awning Windows - This type of window is usually installed beside or on top of another style of window like a picture window. The awning window opens and pushes out from the bottom, being hinged at the top. This style of window lets in a lot of natural light and is also good to improve airflow in your home. 

Slider Windows - Similar to the style of a double-hung window, a slider window’s sash slides within the frame, the difference is that with a slider window it moves from left to right rather than up and down. Slider windows are quite popular in modern and contemporary homes.

There are more window styles on the market, this is simply a listing of the most common styles. If you want to do something really interesting with your home you can always add side lights, custom transoms and decorative grids to express your unique taste. Replacement windows can accentuate your home’s architectural style. We install our windows to VinylMax manufacturer specs. Save money on energy bills with our Vinylmax replacement windows.
