Awning windows are hinged at the top of the frame and are usually opened with a crank or cam handle. These windows are sometimes used in the stairwell or basement to allow light and ventilation to filter into the area. When awning windows are in out of reach places like these, manufacturers often have hardware substitutions to allow customer to open their windows a manual pole from below.
BAY & BOW WINDOWS
Bay windows are comprised of three or more window sash and are installed on a straight wall. These windows provide an extension to the room as they project to the exterior of the home. Bay windows are often used in a seating area at the front of the house, and have casement flankers or single-hung windows at each side to provide ventilation. A bow window is similar to a bay window, but it has four or more sash and is connected to create a curved appearance.
Bi-fold windows are most popular on properties that entertain guests. These windows can create a seamless transition from a kitchen counter to an outdoor patio, or provide a breathtaking view of the ocean at a restaurant located on the coast. These windows offer maximum ventilation, and can either fold in 1- direction, or bi-part at the center.
Block windows are comprised of acrylic or glass blocks and are available in a variety of patterns for privacy or aesthetics. Window configurations include awning, casement, hopper, sliding, single-hung and special geometric shape windows. These windows are popular over the master tub, in a formal dining area, and even the basement.
Casement windows are hinged on the side of the frame and are usually opened with a crank or cam handle. These windows are often used to maximize ventilation and/or to meet emergency egress requirements. Some manufacturers offer a “wash mode”, allowing clients to clean their windows from the inside of the home. Customers with two or more stories on their property will often opt for casement windows for this feature alone. Ask the experts at Alpine Door & Trim about the manufacturers that offer this benefit.
Both the top and bottom sash slide up and down on a double-hung window. Most manufactures offer a “tilt/wash” mode on their double-hung windows, which allows the owner to conveniently clean the windows from the inside of the property by simply tilting the sash to the inside. Customers no longer have to remove their exterior screens to wash their windows!
Fixed windows, also known as picture windows, provide unobstructed views of the exterior of the home, and allow light to filter into the room. Where ventilation is not a concern, a fixed window is a great configuration to consider. These windows are available in a variety of geometrical shapes such as rectangles, trapezoids, rakes, circles, ovals, and hexagons.
The most popular location for a garden window is the kitchen sink. Customer use this window as an extension of the kitchen counter where they can place plants and herbs on the interior shelf, and enjoy some fresh air with the ventilating single-hung windows at each side. Customers can have a greenhouse in any room they choose!
Hopper windows are hinged at the bottom and tilt into the home for ventilation. These windows are often found in basements or classrooms in out of reach places. Like awning windows, these windows are typically operated with the use of a cam handle, but can often be operated with a pole and alternative hardware when the windows are out of reach.
Jalousie windows are opened and closed with a T-turn handle, and ventilates with louvered glass slats.
Single-Hung windows are similar to double-hung windows, but only the bottom sash slides up – the top sash is stationary. Customers are able to value engineer projects by substituting single-hung windows in some openings, while using double-hung windows throughout the rest of the house. The operable sash tilts into the home to enable cleaning the exterior surface.
When windows are facing a walkway or patio area, sliding windows are a great choice. Unlike casement and awning windows, sliding windows do not obstruct pathways. These windows are available in a variety of sizes, and are often used to meet emergency egress code requirements. Window configurations include single sliding, where one sash slides to the left or right (also known as an OX or XO window); double sliding, where both sashes are operable (also known as XX window); and double vent, which involves two operable sash that slide to the center, and one fixed sash in the middle (also known as an XOX window).
TILT & TURN WINDOWS
Tilt & turn windows are most popular in Europe. These windows have the ability to open like an in-swing casement or hopper window, and are usually operated with a cam handle.
Ask Alpine Door & Trim about factory finishing options. Some manufacturers will provide the convenience of in-house painting or staining. With this service owners and builders can eliminate the need to coordinate and hire a subcontractor to complete a project.
