1. Casement Windows
Casement windows are a traditional style window that is hinged on the outside of the structure. Whether it is a single or a double panel, these styles of windows are commonly found in hard to reach areas like above kitchen sinks. The experts at Clearview Windows & Doors can easily repair and replace hinges and cranks on casement windows to ensure that they stay effective.
2. Awning Windows
Awning windows are a popular style for areas that benefit from greater ventilation while still retaining protection from the outdoor elements. Hinged at the top of the panel and opened with a handle, these windows add a unique design element to both the interior and exterior of any building.
3. Double-Hung Windows
Double-hung windows are popular choices for bedrooms and other similar areas. With options to open either the top or bottom panels, these panels offer versatility not found in other window types. The double sliding panels also offer a sleek, modern look to any home.
4. Bay Windows
Bay windows are a classic front window option that offers a touch of luxury to your home design. Intricately designed with three panels, two angled panels with one straight panel in the middle, this style allows for an expansive view to the outside and provides plenty of sunlight. Clearview Windows & Doors can install bay windows in styles such as double-hung, picture windows, or other types of casement styles.
5. Picture Windows
Picture windows are the classic, rectangular glass panels that do not have any sliding or opening components. These motionless windows allow for sunlight to penetrate inside without obstructions found in other window styles.
6. Slider Windows
One of the most low-maintenance options for windows is the slider style. With two components, one stationary pane while the other moves horizontally left or right, this style is also popular in bedrooms and other areas. This style is more contemporary and allows for greater ventilation without a complex system of window parts.
7. Single-Hung Windows
Single-hung windows are nearly the same as double-hung windows except for the top panel, also called the sash, which remains immobile while the bottom section moves up and down for ventilation. This is a popular choice for areas that utilize ventilation, such as a bedroom or a bathroom.
