WHAT ARE CASEMENT WINDOWS?

A casement window has a single sash hinged on either the left or the right of the frame. Most casement windows are operated with a folding hand crank on the bottom of the frame. This easy operation makes casement windows a top choice for spaces like kitchens or bathrooms, where cabinets or large bathtubs may block access to upper portions of a window.

 

Casement windows typically give off a modern aesthetic, but you can add window grids or divided lite bars for a more traditional feel. Thanks to their single sash design, these windows can offer a wide uninterrupted view, top-notch ventilation, and painless cleaning. Casement windows are also a great choice for safety and security concerns. In case of emergency, the sash can open 90-degrees out to serve as a secondary exit for residents.

WHAT ARE AWNING WINDOWS?

Awning windows have a single sash hinged at the top of the frame. Their sash swings outward from the bottom using either a folding hand crack or manual handle.

 

Awning windows are often installed higher up on a wall for privacy or space concerns. They may be placed above doors or larger windows to provide discrete natural lighting and ventilation, as well as an expanded view. Awning windows are also energy efficient, as breezes and high winds blowing against them serve to tighten their seal. When open, awning windows are perfect for inviting in a cool breeze and ushering out stagnant hot air. Their top-hinge design allows water to shed out and away from the opening. Awning windows can keep your spaces comfortable and dry, sometimes even when open in wet weather.

WHAT ARE BAY WINDOWS

Bay windows are most often one large center window with two narrow windows installed on either side. The narrow windows angle to project beyond the exterior wall of the house, creating a three-dimensional view.

Both bay and bow windows can be installed in individual rough openings in the wall, or the factory can mull (connect) them together and then ship and install them as one large unit. Bay and bow windows are popular for their ability to open a room, maximize natural light, and provide a unique view. They also make for cozy reading nooks with discrete storage built under the seat.

WHAT ARE BOW WINDOWS?

Bow windows also project beyond the outside of the building but are usually composed of four or more near-identical windows. As a result, bow windows have a curved effect rather than an angular one, and may need more space than a bay window.

Both bay and bow windows can be installed in individual rough openings in the wall, or the factory can mull (connect) them together and then ship and install them as one large unit. Bay and bow windows are popular for their ability to open a room, maximize natural light, and provide a unique view. They also make for cozy reading nooks with discrete storage built under the seat.

WHAT ARE SINGLE HUNG WINDOWS?

Single hung windows look almost identical to double hung windows. Both have an upper and lower sash, traditional aesthetics, and are easy to operate and clean. The key difference between these styles is that both the top and bottom sashes of a double hung window are movable. Only the bottom sash operates on single hung windows.

Single hung windows are ideal for areas where the top sash might be difficult to reach. Because of their fixed top sash, single hung windows prevent more air infiltration than similar double hung windows and are more energy efficient. Additionally, single hung windows may be less expensive.

WHAT ARE DOUBLE HUNG WINDOWS?

A double hung window is a single unit made of two operable sashes that move up and down. The sashes slide in frame on built-in tracks and are held in position by either counterweights, springs, or friction. The sashes lock with a single or double latch where their frames meet in the middle.

This style of window has a more traditional aesthetic, often featuring simulated divided lites (window grids). Some double hung windows, referred to as “Cottage windows,” have a top sash narrower than the bottom sash.

 

Unlike single hung windows, double hung windows allow ventilation on the top, bottom, or both. These windows are easy to clean thanks to their tilting sashes. If located below a projecting eave, it may still be an option to lower the top sash of a double hung window—even during rainfall.

WHAT ARE CUSTOM WINDOWS?

Custom windows not in the shape of a standard rectangle or square are Custom specialty windows. Custom specialty shape windows are available in hundreds of geometric shapes and styles, providing countless design possibilities.

Most custom-built picture specialty shape windows have a fixed sash which means they can’t be opened. Because of this, they are often paired with or placed near windows that do open. BM offers operating sashes in a variety of specialty shapes including circles, octagons, trapezoids, and triangles.

WHAT ARE SLIDING WINDOWS?

Sliding windows, or “gliders,” are windows with one or more operating sashes. They slide left or right rather than up or down like a double hung window. The moveable sashes on sliding windows can swing in, tilt in, or pull out altogether for easy interior and exterior cleaning.

 

Sliding windows give a room full, uninterrupted outdoor views and excellent ventilation. These windows are perfect for large horizontal spaces near high-traffic areas like decks or walkways. Because their sashes don’t open past the plane of the wall, sliding windows save space and won’t damage landscaping that may be close to the house.
