Types of Windows We Offer
This type of window is one of our most popular because it compliments almost any style of architecture and provides numerous benefits. Exquisitely crafted from uPVC or top-quality virgin vinyl, the frames will never rot, chip, or peel, and the sashes tilt inward so that you can easily clean them without stepping outside your home. They are also made with locking zinc tilt pins to eliminate any concerns about dropping a sash while cleaning.
Double Casement Window
This elegant style of hinged window features two panes of glass that swing outward to open and can extend to a full 90-degree angle. Many homeowners choose this style because it provides optimal airflow into the home whenever the weather is nice. The casement windows we install come with a multi-point locking system for added protection against forced entry, and there’s a generous selection of colors and simulated woodgrain finishes to choose from.
Our lovely picture window consists of a large expanse of glass cradled by top-caliber vinyl frames. This style of window is fixed and cannot be opened but makes a stunning decorative accent, especially when paired with other types of windows. Our picture windows are available in a number of specialty shapes, including full circle, quarter arch, octagon, and hexagon shapes.
Our custom bay window is typically configured as a centerpiece picture window with your choice of operable casement or double-hung windows on either side. The configuration is angled so that the window projects outward and provides an interior seating area if desired. For the interior, we offer a birch or oak veneer header and seat that is hand-sanded as part of its top-quality construction.
This style is a popular choice for homeowners who want a window that can open without disturbing interior shelving or furniture or outdoor landscaping. The glass panels of this window style open and close by sliding horizontally and can also be a great choice when you want windows to fill a large opening and offer an ample view of the outdoors.
Our innovative garden windows make great additions to kitchens and family rooms and are an ideal choice if you enjoy having foliage indoors. These tough vinyl windows are available in numerous colors and simulated woodgrain finishes. They are installed so that they project outward and can include optional acrylic shelving to hold plants and pottery. They also feature screened casement-window vents to provide your plants with the nourishment they require.
This type of window is hinged at the bottom and opens inward from the top, making it an ideal choice for adding ventilation to a basement. They’re also designed for easy cleaning.
