Various Types of Windows

Picture window
Picture Windows
Picture windows, as indicated, provide a beautiful view of the outdoors. This type of window is usually fixed (meaning it doesn't open). A fixed picture window won't offer any ventilation, but permanent seals offer improved energy efficiency.
Casement Windows
Casement windows offer contemporary styling and convenience in one package. They open and close easily with the simple turn of a handle and offer clean sight-lines with an unobstructed view. Installed on their own or paired with other windows, casement windows complement any room.
Bay interior
Bay Windows
Few styles outshine a bay window for adding dimension to a home’s exterior and flooding natural light into interior spaces. Projecting outward from a wall at 30 or 45 degree angles, bay windows create a cozy alcove using any combination of picture, casement or hung windows.
Single hung
Single Hung Windows
Single hung vinyl windows offer the traditional look of a hung window while providing improved security, lower maintenance and increased energy efficiency. The operating sash also tilts in for easy cleaning.
Double hung
Double Hung Windows
The ultimate combination of traditional styling and modern technology, double-hung windows feature tilt-in sashes for easy cleaning. Open them from the bottom like a single-hung window, or slide the top sash down for improved airflow.
Slider Windows 
Horizontal sliding windows are as beautiful as they are practical, and a simple window option which provides effective ventilation and easy fingertip operation. Safe and simple to clean right from inside of your home is one of its key benefits.
Awning Windows
Awning windows improve air movement while protecting your room from the elements making it practical and attractive. Hinged at the top, awning windows open outward with the simple turn of a handle. Often placed above or below other windows for increased ventilation and light.
Shapes interior
Shaped Windows
Make your house not only a home but a work of art by adding custom shape picture or single-hung vinyl windows. Designed just for you to enhance the style and architectural detailing of your home.
