Window Styles

First State Building & Design provide plenty of choices:

Double Hung Windows – two vertically sliding sashes in a single frame. Both sashes can move up and down independently, allowing for better control of ventilation. They are a classic and versatile window style commonly used in various architectural designs.

Picture Windows – large, fixed windows that are designed to provide unobstructed views and allow maximum natural light into a space. Unlike operable windows, picture windows do not open or close. They are often used as a focal point to showcase scenic views.

Awning Windows – hinged at the top and open outward from the bottom. They are typically operated with a crank, and their design allows for ventilation while preventing rain from entering. Awning windows are often used in combination with other window styles for increased airflow.

Bay Windows – a combination of three or more windows that project outward from the main walls of a building. The central window is usually fixed, and the side windows are angled to create a distinctive bay or bow shape. Bay windows can add architectural interest and create additional interior space.

Garden Windows – typically small, box-like windows that extend outward from the side of a house. They are often used in kitchens and are designed to create a shelf or display area for plants or other decorative items. Garden windows provide additional natural light and can enhance the aesthetic appeal of a room.

Skylights – installed in the roof of a building to allow natural light to enter from above. They are often used in spaces where conventional windows may not be practical, such as attics or rooms with limited wall space. Skylights come in various designs, including fixed, ventilating, or tubular models.

FAQ about Windows

The lifespan of windows varies depending on factors like the type of material and local climate. Generally, high-quality windows can last 15 to 30 years. Consider replacement if you notice drafts, increased energy bills, or visible signs of wear and damage.

Energy-efficient windows typically have features like double or triple glazing, low-emissivity (low-E) coatings, and inert gas fills. Look for ENERGY STAR-rated windows, as they meet specific energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Measure the width and height of the window opening from the inside, taking measurements at the top, middle, and bottom. Use the smallest measurement for width and the largest for height. It’s advisable to consult with a professional for accurate measurements.

Low-emissivity (Low-E) glass has a microscopically thin coating that reflects heat. It helps to keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter by reducing the transfer of heat through the glass. This enhances energy efficiency and can lower heating and cooling costs.

Signs include drafts, condensation between the panes, difficulty in opening or closing, visible damage or rot, and an increase in energy bills. If you notice these issues, it’s advisable to consult with a window professional to assess whether repair or replacement is necessary.
