    PART 1Bay and Bow Windows

    Bay and bow windows are essentially the same in style in that they are both made up of several smaller windows but they are different in that bay windows feature three of these smaller windows while bow windows have four or five. Because of the number of smaller windows they have, bay windows are angular in shape while bow windows are more curved.

    BAY AND BOW WINDOWS

    PANORAMIC VIEWBecause of the way they project past your homes outside walls, bay and bow windows provide a larger, wider view of the outdoors, which can be particularly dramatic if the window is installed in an upper floor. As the window is not flat, areas that would not normally be visible from a standard window become visible through a bay or bow window.

    INCREASED SPACEIn addition to providing a wider view, the way the windows project past the homes walls creates a feeling of increased space in the room where one is installed. The actual square footage of the space increase may not be much (just enough for a window seat usually), but that feeling of increased space, coupled with the wider view, can have a tremendous impact on the look and feel of a room.

    BAY AND BOW WINDOWS

    MORE SUNLIGHTBecause bay and bow windows are made up of several windows, they offer more opportunities for sunlight to enter a home. This makes them great for anyone looking to take advantage of daylighting or simply want to open up a room and make it feel more inviting. For illumination purposes, bay and bow windows are particularly useful during the long winter months when natural light is scarce

    IMPROVED VENTILATIONBay and bow windows are great for increasing ventilation in an area. The smaller windows can be opened, letting in air from different directions. This greatly increases the amount of air flowing through the windows to improve air circulation in the home.

    PART 2Double Hung Windows

    Double hung windows have been around for centuries but remain to be the most commonly used in U.S. homes. Consisting of two sashes that slide up and down, double hung windows are more versatile than older single hung windows that only have one operable sash.

    DOUBLE HUNG WINDOWS

    RANGE OF OPTIONSBecause of the popularity of double hung windows, they are available in a wide variety of materials, colors, and finishes. Whether youre looking for a window made of wood, vinyl, composite, or fiberglass, its pretty much certain to be available as a double hung window. This, alongside the windows timeless design, allows it to complement just about any home.

    EASE OF OPERATIONNothing could be easier than opening or closing a double hung window. Just slide the sashes up or down and youre done. This ease of operation applies to cleaning and maintenance as well, especially in newer models that allow the sashes to tilt in so the exterior side can be cleaned from inside the home.

    GOOD VENTILATIONWith double hung windows you have the option to open either sashes, offering great control to address varying ventilation needs. Improving air circulation in the home not only makes it possible for air to come in and cool a room but it can also help direct warmer air out to facilitate cooling. Aside from improving indoor comfort, this can also help you lower energy costs by reducing strain on your HVAC system.

  • REPLACEMENT WINDOWS FOR EVERY HOME

    GARDEN AND GLIDER WINDOWS

    Garden and glider windows both frame the outside world in a particular way, making them important options to consider when looking for new windows for your home.

    Garden windows are named as such because they are typically installed overlooking gardens or backyards. Projecting outward from the wall like a bay or bow window, a garden window has five glass panes one on each side, one in front, one at the bottom, and one slanted pane at the top.

    Glider windows, also called sliding windows, are named for the way they are operated. Glider windows slide along a track to open, easy to operate so its great for use in various parts of the home.

    GARDEN WINDOW GLIDER WINDOW

    EASE OF OPERATIONGarden and glider windows are simple to operate. Typically, garden windows open at the sides, with panels operable like casement windows, while glider windows, as previously mentioned, easily and silently slide along a track to open or close.

    GARDEN AND GLIDER WINDOWS

    SPACE-SAVINGBoth garden and glider windows help to save space in areas where theyre installed. Actually, garden windows create space in the form of a shell, offering shelf space that can house small items like potted plants. Glider windows, on the other hand, open sideways and not outward or inward so they dont impact the immediate space around them, not needing clearance to be fully utilized.

    GOOD ILLUMINATIONGlider and garden windows increase the amount sunlight entering a room thanks to how they are constructed. Though not often very large, garden windows use a lot of glass that let in a lot of natural light. Glider windows, on the other hand, usually have unobstructed glass areas, which means sunlight can stream in unimpeded.

    Different windows have different effects on different homes. All have something to offer

    but only one will be perfect for you. Replacing a window is an investment so make sure you take the time to go over your options. Dont

    hesitate to talk to a local contractor for further guidance on choosing.
