Transform your home.
Windows provide you with a gateway to the outside. They enable you to see the beauty of the changing seasons and everything going on in the world around you. However, if you don't make sure your windows are in optimal condition, they won't be able to do their job adequately. Over time, windows can end up cracking and sagging, allowing air to move freely through them. This can cause your energy bills to soar out of control as well as bring down the aesthetic qualities of your home.

Types of Windows and Operating Styles
With an awning window, the sash is hinged at the top and swings outward. This allows air to flow into the home with side to side ventilation, while helping also to keep the rain out. This style of window tends to be smaller in size and is often wider than it is tall.
Horizontal sliding windows are a common style and are easy to use. The sash slides either to the left or right, depending on where you wish to direct the air flow in the room. Sliders make a good option for larger window sizes and help control air circulation.
Single Hung Windows
For single hung windows, the bottom sash slides up and down, opening and closing the window. The top sash stays in place and allows light to enter the home, but not air flow. Single hung windows save space when the exterior faces a patio or walking path.
Double Hung Windows
With double hung windows, both the top and bottom sash are operable. They're easy to clean because the sashes tilt inward, which may be important if your window isn't on the first floor. They also offer the space-saving convenience of a single hung window.
Casement windows have a hinge on one side and open outwardly by rotating a crank-style handle. Because they open like a door, they allow maximum ventilation into the home. They also provide an unobstructed view, very similar to a picture window.
Picture windows provide an unobstructed view to the outside for maximum daylighting. They remain firmly in place and do not open, making them an ideal option for rooms which are intended to project more natural daylight in the form of various shapes.
Bay windows are a combination of three windows protruding out from the home for a stylistic touch. Generally one large fixed panel is in the center, flanked by two smaller side lights that open for ventilation. It's common to see a window seat on the inside.
Bow windows are a combination of four or more windows similar in width, joined at equal angels to create an arched curve. The repetitive shape provides a distinct symmetrical effect which organically adds extra space to the inside of a room.
Radius windows have an arched top and a rectangular bottom. The curve can be subtle or more rounded like a half-circle. Arch-shaped windows bring softness to a room and juxtapose the straight corners of the windows for a contrasting effect.
Jalousie, or louvre windows, are made of horizontal glass slats that operate much like a blind or a shutter. They open in unison to different angles letting in light or air, but prevent rain from entering the home. This window option is only available in Hawaii.
Garden windows extend out from the house with a box-like frame and generally have an interior shelf for plants and herbs. Side panels offer interior ventilation. This window model is not intended for areas with sidewalks, patios, or other exterior features.
