Types of Windows

  • Awning Windows: Awning windows are wider than they are tall and have a top hinge and swing outward from the bottom. These windows allow for good ventilation.
  • Bay and Bow Windows: Bay Windows can be custom designed using a variety of different style and sized windows. Bay and bow windows both protrude outwards, providing homeowners a unique setting or display space with ample light.
  • Casement Windows: These windows, popular in the Annapolis area, allow for maximum airflow and ventilation. These windows are hinged on one side and open horizontally.
  • Single-Hung & Double-Hung Windows: Single and Double-hung windows are the most common type of window. Vinyl windows are the standard in replacement windows and allow for a more energy efficient and lower maintenance window.
  • Gliding or Sliding Windows: If you have a kitchen window facing your screened in porch a sliding window can slide horizontally so you can easily converse and pass food back and forth to your friends and family on the other side.
  • Specialty Windows: Specialty windows come in all shapes and sizes, whether you need a half circle window above a door for some extra light or an octagon window in an old stairwell.
  • Picture Window: A large fixed window that does not open, picture windows are a solid sheet of glass that is meant to allow optimal light and for a great view of the outdoors.
