Types of Windows

There are many types of windows that you can use to replace your building's old or damaged windows. It is vital to use a professional window installer's services to ensure that your building's windows get fitted properly. These types of windows include:

1. Double-Hung Windows

These are windows having two sashes that vertically slide in the frame in an upward and downward direction. They can open wide from either the bottom or the top. However, to avoid their protrusion either to the house's interior or exterior, they remain inside the frame.

  • They are effective air circulators
  • They are attractive and increase the curb appeal of your home

3. Single-Hung Windows

They are similar to the double-hung windows but only open from their bottom side.

4. Awning Windows

It is a type of window that lets in air from the bottom, right or left since they open outward. You can install them alongside, beside, or above an operating or stationary window.

Pros

  • They are easy to open and close due to their easy-crank operation mechanism
  • They allow adequate natural air circulation
