If you have been stuck understanding window types. Here is what there is out there and you can outsmart that window salesman.
A double-hung window has two vertically sliding sash in a single frame. Double-hungs lift open while remaining flush with the wall, making them ideal around patios, decks and walkways.
Casement windows are hinged windows that, with a turn of a crank, open outward to the right or to the left. Casements are common above kitchen sinks for areas where full venting windows are desired, and give you flexibility to group in stunning combinations.
Awning windows are hinged at the top and open outward. They catch breezes from
the left or right and are often used above, below or alongside stationary windows.
Gliding windows feature two sash, with at least one of the sash sliding horizontally past the other. They give you the advantages of double-hung windows with a more contemporary look.
Stationary windows, as the name states, are windows that don’t open. Often referred to as picture windows, they’re typically used to provide maximum light and an unobstructed view, and are often combined with venting windows.
Specialty windows are stationary windows characterized by their special shapes, including curves and dramatic angles. They can make a signature statement in your home and provide a delicate lighting accent.
