WINDOWS & DOORS

New windows can make your home quieter, more attractive, and less drafty, and they don’t need painting. They’re also easier to clean than old windows with combination storm and screens and can reduce your carbon footprint.

Today’s energy-conscious consumers want to minimize the costs of heating and cooling their homes. Whether you’re building a new home or planning to replace existing windows, the key is to know which choices will give you the biggest bang for your buck without delivering a blow to your bottom line.

KINDS OF WINDOWS

Double Hung On double hung windows both sash in the window frame are operable, meaning they move up and down. The sashes on a double hung window also tilt in for easy cleaning.
Single Hung On single hung windows, the top sash is fixed in place and does not move, but the bottom sash is operable.
Awning Hinged at the top and open outward, allowing for ventilation even during a light rain. Often used in combination with other window styles or placed higher on walls for privacy, awning windows are easy to open and close.
Fixed Also known as "non-operational windows", Fixed windows are designed to let in light and add expansive views. The difference between Fixed and Picture windows lies in the size of the window frame.
Sliding Designed with one side fixed and the other side can slide open and closed.
Double Sliding Both sides slide open. Typically only one side is screened. Often these kinds of windows have a single locking mechanism in the middle.
Casement Attached to its frame by one or more hinges at the side. Casement windows are often held open using a casement stay. Windows hinged at the top are referred to as awning windows, and ones hinged at the bottom are called hoppers.
Bow Project from the side of the home in a curved shape. Bow windows can come in 3, 4, 5, or 6 window sections, called “lites”.
Bay Project at sharp angles, and are made up of three window panels. Often bay windows will protrude past the eve of the home causing them to require a dormer roof of their own.

KINDS OF DOORS

Exterior

Panel Panel doors feature something called stiles and rails. A stile is a length of wood positioned vertically on the door and rails are lengths of wood that run horizontally across a door. The flat panels of the door fit between its stiles and rails. Some exterior doors tend to mimic these styles using pressed aluminium or steel.
Flush Flush doors have a flat, smooth surface without the elaborate design work of a panel door. A flush door is made up of a single solid piece of wood (Sometimes laminated on a frame). Both types of doors can be made with different kinds of wood and can be found in a variety of colors.Again on exterior doors you will often see aluminium or steel.
Half Panel The same as a full panel door except the top half or 2/3 of the door is a glass insert. These kinds of doors are typically steel or aluminium however it not unheard of to use real hardwood doors if price is no object.
Full Glass Either a wood, steel or aluminium frame with a glass insert. The insert can come if a variety of styles from full glass to french pane.
Sliding Patio Sometimes called a gliding door, the Sliding patio door is usually made of PVC material with a single pane fixed in position with the opposite pane on gliders. Though rare, double sliding patio doors are also an option.
Swinging Patio Similar to the interior french door the swinging patio door allows for both left and right side of the door to open. Usually one side is fixed in place with two pins located at the top and the bottom. Designed to open into a room or out onto a patio, these doors make a dramatic statement and add great ventilation.
Folding Folding doors are similar to the swinging patio door except rather than two panels they have at least 3. With options for all three panels to fold to one side a combination therein these doors are popular opening out onto courtyards and private spaces.
