Double hung windows are a classic choice, making it the most popular style of window in the United States. And there’s good reason for their popularity. In short, they have great versatility. They can do a whole lot while still looking great.
Double hung windows allow for ventilation on the top and the bottom end of the window because they have two operating sash. A window sash holds the glass and the framework around the glass to keep it in place. This double sash allows the window to open on top and bottom. This is in contrast with single hung windows that prevent you from opening the top part of the window, usually only with a lower sash that opens up. With double hung, you can double your ventilation and/or choose top or bottom ventilation. We also provide a variety of styles to choose from. You simply can’t go wrong with this versatile classic!
Another classic style is the sliding window. We like to describe sliding windows as being like double hung windows turned on their side. They have a dual sash that allows for the windows to glide back and forth.
Much like the double hung windows, these sliders make for a good deal of versatility. And they couldn’t possibly be any easier to operate! These make for a particularly good choice for people looking for easy-to-operate windows that offer great views.
With casement windows, you get the perfect balance of beauty and durability. These ultra-strong windows are attached to the frame by hinges on the side. This allows you to maximize airflow by propping the windows open, sometimes with a casement stay.
Not only do you get strength, durability, and beauty with casement windows, but this style of window can be particularly energy-efficient. As mentioned above, all of our windows have excellent energy efficiency. However, because casement windows can be closed by pressing on the frame, this can sometimes allow for an even tighter seal. Keep in mind, however, that casement windows are not the only style that can be shut from pressing on the frame…
While casement windows will have hinges on the side (they can come in both left- and right-handed orientation), awning windows will have a hinge on the top. Because they have a hinge at the top, awning windows will swing out from the bottom in order to open.
Awning windows tend to be a great choice to complement other window setups. This style of replacement windows will be wider than it is tall, so you’ll often see them situated above other styles of window. An ideal placement for awning windows is above the sink or above doors. Another benefit of awning windows is that they help prevent rain from spilling in since the window opens upward!
Speaking of windows that go great above sinks, garden windows can be a fantastic choice for people who love to fill their homes with lush plants and greenery. A garden window extends slightly into the outside of your home and is situated with an interior shelf that makes for an ideal space for plants and flowers.
By having the interior shelf extended outward, the garden window maximizes the amount of sunlight to help your plants flourish. They are also made so that the side windows can be opened to provide fresh air for your plants and your home.
With garden windows, only the side windows open, meaning the middle window stays shut but provides a large space for direct sunlight. A picture window is a larger version of this. A picture window cannot be opened at all, as its purpose is to maximize the natural light and provide breathtaking views.
It’s called a picture window because it’s all about taking in that expansive, unobstructed view. A picture window has no sash and, as we mentioned, cannot be opened. On the one hand, this means that it’s not a good choice if for ventilation. On the other hand, a picture window is an especially effective insulator, making it extremely energy efficient. Another benefit is that it lacks moving parts, so there’s no chance of wearing out and needing to replace parts of it in the future. If you’re looking to maximize your view of the outdoors, there’s simply no better option.
While picture windows will bring attention to the views, bow windows will make the window itself the main attraction. Bow windows are a set of four to six window panes that angle outward, creating a striking curved space.
Bow windows are made of more panes of glass than any other window style, which means they let in a vast amount of natural light while also offering great views of the outdoors. One of the strongest appeals of bow windows is the style. The curved walls make a unique and lovely flow both inside and outside of your home, while also providing extra space in whatever room they’re in. Bow windows offer exceptional style and beauty, but they’re not the only option for those focused on aesthetic.
With shape windows, you can really let your creativity shine! Shape windows are customized to uniquely fit various areas of your home. Storm Tight can work with you to make your vision become a reality. Would you like replacement windows that are circular? How about hexagonal windows? Triangles? Check, check, and check. We can work soft curves to sharp angles to bring you the custom window that your home deserves.
Just because shape windows are uniquely designed doesn’t mean that they sacrifice one iota of the quality you’ve come to expect from Storm Tight. Our shape windows are made from the best materials on the market and provide unmatched energy efficiency. Get quality and beauty in your home with shape windows.
Finally, bay windows are not a type of window in themselves, but they’re a way to uniquely place your choice of window. With bay windows, we take a certain number of panes (usually three or more) and put them together at angled projections. These angled spaces allow for a dynamic look to the walls of your home and, like bow windows, will extend outward to provide a certain amount of extra space inside your home.
Best of all, with bay windows, you can choose what style is best for you. They can be casement, picture, or double hung windows. And now that you have an idea of what each of those windows offers, you are in a great position to pick the right bay windows for your home!
