Rose Tarlow once said that “if eyes are the windows to our souls, then windows are the eyes into the soul of a house.” How are the eyes into the soul of your house looking? Having the right windows installed can really make your house look better, while cracked or broken windows can make even the best-designed homes look bad!
Windows are an important factor in your home’s curbside appearance, and they also play a crucial role in determining the energy efficiency of your home. Windows that aren’t properly installed in the first place can quickly turn into a liability. And windows that are old, cracked, or broken are no longer providing the safety, security, and weather protection that your home needs. Replacing these windows is a smart decision that every homeowner or business owner should make.

Since modern windows and replacement windows come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and designs, we thought we’d briefly explain and summarize some of the major window types that are available to you.
Double-hung windows are the most common type of windows found in U.S. homes. These are traditional, top-and-bottom rectangular windows featuring a grid of smaller rectangular panes. Both the top and bottom windows can be raised to open, lowered to close, and come in a wide variety of frame materials, including vinyl, wood, and aluminum.
Single-hung windows look basically identical to double hung windows, with the main difference being that only the bottom window moves. The top sash is fixed, one advantage of which being the fact that it provides a firm seal against the elements.
Casement windows are contemporary-looking and convenient. The window is mounted on hinges, and the window can be cranked or pushed open or shut manually or with an automated mechanism. They are more energy efficient than some other window styles, and they can come in single frame or double casement window arrangements.
Awning windows have a similar design to casement windows, but are mounted differently. An awning window’s hinges are mounted at the top, rather than on the sides like a typical casement window.
Bay windows offer many attractive features, including panoramic views, plenty of natural light, cross breeze ventilation, and they add a little more square footage to your home’s interior. They also add some interesting dimension to the exterior of your home. Bay windows come in both casement and double-hung designs.
Bow windows have a similar design and function to bay windows, with the main difference being that bow windows project out in a curved arc, where traditional bay windows have more of an angular geometry.
Slider windows work exactly the way they sound – they open and close by sliding horizontally along their frame. Unlike double-hung windows with their grid of smaller panes, slider windows offer larger, more unbroken views. Single-slider windows have only one sliding sash, while with a double-slider window both ends can be opened and shut independently.
Architectural shape windows are a type of specialty window that highlight your home’s design with attractive geometric patterns, including octagon, trapezoid, triangle, elliptical, colonial arch, full circle, etc. Most architectural shape windows are fixed, meaning they don’t open and close, but they can be arranged around and alongside other movable windows, like sliders.
A picture window is typically a large, fixed window with large panes that allow for grand, unobstructed views. Picture windows do come in a variety of sizes and shapes, but are most common in homes with high ceilings or vaulted ceilings. While picture windows don’t offer any ventilation, they do provide rooms with an abundance of natural light.
