Types Of Windows To Consider
#1 Awning Windows– These open up & out and are the perfect way of adding accents to any room. They add to the aesthetics of the interior & exterior of your home and are available in very easy-to-operate installations. If you like, you can also use a combination of fixed and awning windows for a striking look as well as added visibility.
#2.Bay Windows– This style of window is a stunning addition to the exterior as well as interior of your home. Bay windows have a multi-dimensional design, which is a perfect way to expand interior spaces; it also increases natural light-transmittance & creates more inviting rooms. Typically, these windows are made of a picture/fixed center window, with 2 operable windows on either side. Bay windows will either tie-back into the wall under an existing soffit system/incorporate their very own hip-roof system. This aspect makes them easily customizable to your individual architectural taste.
#3.Bow Windows– Like Bays, these windows also extend outwards from an exterior wall. This gives you the flexibility to add to the architectural beauty of your home. Typically, these incorporate a very gently-formed arc that is made of 3-5 windows which may serve as operable units like the casement or double hung styles; alternatively, you can choose from fixed style ones.
You can use thesewindow installations in larger openings; they help extend the viewing area & bring in more light in the indoor spaces, even as they create a greater architectural definition. These can have their own custom hip-roof incorporated above the installation, or can be tied-in to your existing roof just under your home’s soffit system.
#4. Casement Windows– This is a very versatile and beautiful window style, which makes them an ideal installation for just about any room. These are big and beautiful windows that provide maximum air-flow into the room. Adding a beveled exterior sash styling can also give this window the appearance of a much larger glass surface, but with a more slim-line look.
#5. Double-Hung Windows– These are the ideal blend of style, convenient design and a contemporary look. They are perfect for homeowners who want to effectively ventilate the room from the top & bottom. They can also be tilted conveniently into the room to clean very safely. You can create a very bold statement with these windows.
#6. Garden Windows– These windows are the perfect choice for anyone who wants to grow herbs and fresh flowers in their home right round the year, in the room where they want them to be. You can choose from fully-screened, twin-sealing operating casement; this provides effective weather protection.
#7. Hopper Windows– These are essentially bottom-hinged windows that open inwards and provide plenty of ventilation. We provide hopper windows made of solid vinyl that is strong and durable. These are ideal for bathrooms and basements. The Full flush-mount screen helps keep insects, debris and dirt from entering these spaces.
#8.Sliding Windows– Our beautifully structured sliding windows afford wide outdoor views and as well as natural light. These horizontal sliders are available in 2/3 section design, and are very easy to operate. If you have standard windows, having more becomes a problem; but when you opt for energy-efficient sliding windows from Window Strong, you can open your rooms up to natural light and fresh air very easily.
#9. Swing & Clean Windows– These are extremely stylish installations that perform very well and are easy to maintain. It’s possible to swing the window’s sashes inward and conveniently clean the exterior glass. These windows can be made more energy-efficient by using a multi-chambered vinyl frame.
#10. Fixed Picture Window– This style of window is called that because it is specifically designed to afford you clear views of the outdoors. It is essentially a non-ventilating window that’s like a picture frame for the view outside. We can design this as a standalone unit or as mentioned earlier- it can be installed as part of a bow or bay window. The larger fixed picture windows are designed for better views. If the glass is fixed directly to the window frame, it will be called- “direct set” picture window
#11. Tilt-Turn Windows- This is another popular style of window. It is designed to open up by tilting-in at the top; sometimes it may also swing into the room in the manner that a door does and one handle controls both operations. The added benefit of this style of window is that it’s easy to clean and provides excellent ventilation.
#12. Decor Windows -These have stunning bevel designs in a range of colors and are the perfect complement to architectural/ décor styles. In many ways, these windows work out to be much more cost-effective than beveled or leaded ones. They can be used as foyer windows, transoms, side-lites, or as garden tub windows.
#13.Specialty Windows– If there is a specific styling you want and are looking to add a very unique look to your home; you can opt for custom styled specialty windows to complement the interior/exterior architecture of your home. You can choose from elliptical/eyebrow-shaped windows or even quarter-rounds or half rounds for any type of special architectural application.
It’s also possible to have octagonal, triangle or trapezoid windows- these fit beautifully into strategic locations- bring in more light and act as an accent piece too. Specialty windows are exactly that- a special contemporary or traditional touch to the architectural styling of your home.
