Casement Window-Types Of Windowsteam of designers 

Types of windows

1) Picture Window : This variety is a large stationary window that lets in the maximum amount of light and views of the outdoors. Picture windows are stationary and do not open. This makes them more energy efficient and allows for larger sizes than a window that vents. Often used in combinations to maximize the view

2) Slider Windows : Gliding along a track, sliding windows have at least one operating window that slides horizontally over or past the other window. They are most often used in modern- or contemporary-style houses.Pass-through windows are multi-functional and occupy less space than an open door while still offering ample convenience, ventilation and natural light.

3) Casement Windows : These hinged windows operate by a turn of a crank in an operating mechanism. They can be hinged on the left or the right to open outward. Casement windows crank open outward to the left or right allowing for full top to bottom ventilation. Common above kitchen sinks, casement windows give you the flexibility to group them in stunning combinations.

4) Bay or Bow Windows : Generally, bay or bow windows give you more interior space, as they protrude out from the exterior of the siding of the house. They are a combination of windows often with a stationary window in the middle flanked by either double-hung windows or casements.Bay and bow windows are created by combining three or more windows together so that they angle out beyond the house wall, allowing more light in and giving you extra space inside your room.

5) Double-Hung Windows : This type of window has two sashes that slide vertically up and down in the frame. They can open wide from either the top or the bottom, but they remain inside the frame so they don’t protrude out to the exterior or interior of the house. On a single-hung window, only the bottom part of the window operates while the top part remains stationary.

Double-hung windows have two sash that move up and down allowing for maximum ventilation. Single-hung windows allow ventilation through the lower sash. Both offer easy cleaning from inside your home and remain flush with the wall, making them ideal for patios or walkways.
