Different Types of Replacement Windows

Different Types of Replacement Windows

There are many different types of replacement windows available, which means you can easily create the aesthetic you desire for your home. However, it can be difficult to choose which options are best, so we’ve created a helpful guide to provide the basic details about some of our most popular replacement window types:

Single Hung

Our single hung windows feature two sashes of double-paned low-emissivity (energy efficient) eVantage™ glass. The top sash is fixed in place, while the bottom sash opens by sliding upward. The bottom sash can also tilt inward for easy cleaning. The frame and sashes are made of uPVC vinyl, which offers superior durability and thermal efficiency. All our single hung windows have self-locking mechanisms. Customization options include impact-resistance and a top arch in the upper pane.

Double Hung

Our double hung windows are similar to single hung windows, except that both the upper and lower sashes can slide up and down or tilt open. They are also equipped with a constant force balance system. They also feature double-paned glass, and the grids are situated between the panes for easy cleaning. These windows have a more traditional look, making them an excellent choice for historical homes.


We also offer sliding windows, with one operable sash that slides open horizontally in front of the other for maximum airflow. These windows also come in impact-resistant options as well as with self-locking or manual locking options.


Picture windows are fixed (cannot be opened) and often oversized to let in as much natural light as possible. We offer a variety of picture window options, with various sizes of rectangular and square panes available. These windows are low-maintenance, and like the rest of our windows, come in heavy-duty uPVC frames and with double panes of glass.


Finally, we supply fixed windows in non-rectangular geometric shapes, such as round, octagonal, or arched. These shape windows can add visual interest and personality to a window array.
