Window Styles

We Have Many Types of Window Styles, All Beautiful, Long-Lasting, and Energy Efficient

While window styles are an important part of the overall look of your home, they’re also important for natural light, airflow, and for energy efficiency. The right type of window can help create the right breeze, let in the right amount of light, and help insulate your home so you can save money on your monthly energy bills. As a window expert, we offer a variety of styles to fit your wants and needs.

Basement Windows

Awning windows are:

  • Rectangular
  • Open outward
  • Can be used during inclement weather

Hopper windows are:

  • Rectangular
  • Open inward
  • Maximize ventilation
