Take a look below at the different window types you can choose for new or replacement windows.

Types of Windows


Double HungDouble hungs have two sash, one over the other. Both sash operate by sliding up and down.Cottage-style double hungs have a bottom sash that is taller than the top sash.Triple hungs may be custom-ordered and typically have similar features and options as double hungs.

Casement Window

Offering convenience and plenty of daylight, casements are energy efficient and provide good ventilation. The sash swing open at the side, then close and seal tightly to the frame. Weather-stripping prevents air infiltration.

Many models, shapes and configurations are available. Operation types include crank-out, push-out and inswing. Retractable screens are available which roll up and are concealed when not in use. Triple-pane glass is available for many of our casements.

Their ease of operation makes them an excellent choice for hard-to-reach locations, such as over the kitchen sink.

Picture WindowYou can open up any room to more sun and wider vistas while you create a dramatic aesthetic statement.Most are fusion welded for strength and durability, so they’re as strong as they are beautiful.These energy-efficient windows offer unobstructed sightlines and are great for filling a room with natural light.
Slider WindowsSliders have two or three sash aligned horizontally with side-to-side sliding operation in one or two of the sash.Picture sliders have a sliding sash on either side of a usually wider stationary sash.Single slider windows offer a large, unobstructed view of the outdoors.Sliders are ideal for areas with limited space. Many modern sliders have sash that can be removed for cleaning.

Awning Windows

Awning windows are energy efficient and provide excellent ventilation.

Bottom venting allows them to be slightly open even in light rain. They close and seal tightly to the frame and weather-stripping.

Awnings are often stacked and mulled for a wall of windows that invites passive solar heat while allowing fresh air when needed.

Operation types include crank-out and push-out. Triple-pane glass is available for many of our awnings. Many models, shapes and configurations are available.


Radius Window

Nothing highlights classic architecture like the elegant curves of radius windows.

Quarter-circle, half-circle or elliptical units can be stacked over other windows or doors to allow more light into a room and make a grand statement.

Full-circle, quarter-circle and oval units are perfect for small spaces, corners, gables and dormers. Divided lites often embellish radius windows even further.

Bay WindowIn general, a bay window is an angular, multi-panel window that projects out from the wall line, increasing the viewing area and creating additional space inside the home.The most typical bay window consists of a fixed center lite flanked on either side by two double hung or casement windows.The side windows project at either 9, 15, 30, or 45 degree angles.
Bow WindowA bow window is recognized by its smooth, graceful curve and its expansive, open views. Viewed from the outside of the home, they make a unique, dramatic statement.Bow windows feature a consistent radius throughout, which is achieved by joining multiple, equal-sized windows. The wider each window, the deeper the curve and the more the bow will project from the home.For safety and stability, most bow windows have threaded steel rods and an optional cable support system.
Garden WindowGarden Window is the choice for adding light, air and beauty to any room in your home.The slim line design and fusion welded joints allow for maximum viewing area, strength and weather resistance.Each garden window includes a glass tempered shelf to support additional plants in your home and two operating casements for ventilation.


Hopper WindowHopper windows are hinged at the bottom and open inward.These versatile windows offer excellent ventilation and are perfectly suited for small spaces such as a shower or tub area, or for large spaces such as a basement.Some Hopper windows feature a lever style handle that fits into the locking mechanism for security.

Geometric Window

Make your room truly distinctive with geometric windows.  Any combination will provide a light-filled room and a terrific view.

Comprise a window all with a variety of triangles, trapezoids, parallelograms, octagons, pentagons, diamonds or hexagons to create a unique space that is sure to be eye-catching.


Tilt-Turn Window

Tilt-Turn windows pay tribute to a European classic — casement windows with special hardware that permits two types of operation.

Various operating mechanisms are available like an inswing casement or a top-venting hopper.

Tilt-before-turn, turn-before-tilt, inswing turn-only, tilt-only, and hopper are all options.


Direct Set Window

Direct set windows are designed for projects which do not require operating windows and a large daylight opening is required for maximum visibility. The glass is set directly into the frame.


Direct set windows are often used to create the traditional detail similar to old storefronts, while offering maximum viewing area. Yet, some have a streamlined appearance, which can work well in contemporary projects.

Folding WindowFolding windows offer expansive pass-through systems with sash that fold to one side, split and fold to either side (bi-parting), or float; an optional swinging sash is available for easy access
