HOW MANY TYPES OF WINDOWS ARE THERE?

There are many types of windows, but some of the most common types include:

  1. Single-hung windows: These windows have a fixed top sash and a bottom sash that can be opened by sliding it up.
  2. Double-hung windows: These windows have two sashes that can be moved up and down independently.
  3. Casement windows: These windows are hinged on one side and swing outward when opened, usually operated by a crank.
  4. Awning windows: These windows are hinged at the top and swing outward when opened, typically operated by a crank.
  5. Sliding windows: These windows have one or more sashes that slide horizontally along tracks.
  6. Bay windows: These windows extend outward from the wall and typically have a central picture window flanked by two smaller windows.
  7. Bow windows: Similar to bay windows, but with a more rounded shape.
  8. Picture windows: These windows are fixed and do not open, often used for providing a view or natural light.
  9. Transom windows: These narrow windows are typically located above doors or other windows to provide additional light and ventilation.
  10. Skylight windows: These windows are installed in the ceiling or roof and provide natural light from above.

The type of window that’s best for your home will depend on factors such as your design preferences, energy efficiency needs, and the amount of ventilation you require.
