Carrying the leading brand names, as well as a multitude of materials, styles, and colors, we offer something that every homeowner or builder can fit into their project perfectly. Choosing the right window can be hard for any homeowner.

How do I decide which type of window I need? Let the experts weigh in.

Bay Window

Bay windows are a combination of picture, casement, and double hung windows projecting outwards from the house. Just by adding this into your home it can significantly change the room – adding space, volume, and light. Typically, the interior and header seats are made of birch or oak, depending on the manufacturer. Additionally, you can paint or stain the interior seats. Or go for the “dogged ears,” a Philly special, lengthening the interior bottom sill.

Bow Window

Every feature listed above for bays applies to bows. Consisting of four or five windows, bows normally have at least three window combinations. Each window in a bow is equal in size although the angle can differ based on the particular job. You can choose a style for each window from casement, double hung, and picture.

 

 

Casement Window

Casement windows open and close easily by turning a handle, making them ideal for behind sinks and counters. They hinge at the side and open outward to the left or right. Typically taller than they are wide, the entire sash opens to provide exceptional ventilation.

 

Double Hung Window


A double hung window has a top sash that slides down and a bottom sash that slides up for better air infiltration. Unlike others, both sashes can tilt in and open. This way, you can access the outside glass from the inside, making it easier to clean. This style can come with either a standard half screen or full screen, protecting your home from insects while enjoying fresh air. Easy to operate and easy to clean, they are also energy efficient with an air-tight seal.

 

Picture Window

Square or rectangular picture windows are stationary. They don’t open, but they allow maximum light into the room. Combine them with a double hung, casement, or shape window to accent an opening. There are several options for grids available to coordinate with your home’s design.

 

Shape Window

Shape windows are picture windows that aren’t square or rectangular. They are also stationary and non-opening. A uniquely-shaped window will stand out – bringing texture, design, and shadowing into your home. There are many possibilities. Your budget and imagination are your only limits.
