Window Shopping

A primer on today’s most popular window options


These windows are hinged on the top of the frame and swing outward.

Double Hung

With two operable window sashes, double-hung windows offer multiple ventilation options and ease of use.


Hinged on the side, casement windows can either swing inward or outward, depending on desired style.

Direct Glaze

These non-operating windows are set directly into the frame  to create a large expanse of glass.


These user-friendly windows slide open from side to side.
