Bay Windows - consist of three individual window segments set together at either a 30˚ or 45˚ angle.

Bow Windows - are similar to bays but consist of three to five window segments set together at a 10˚ angle. Flanking windows available in casement and single hung.

Casement Windows - open outward from one side via a crank handle.

Garden Windows - a box shaped window with vertically sliding side vents to provide ventilation.

Horizontal Sliding Windows - one or more panes slide side to side horizontally while one pane is fixed.

- The overall width of the product desired in feet and inches

Height - The overall height of the product desired in feet and inches

Materials - The material composition of the window frame (Vinyl, wood, aluminum, etc.)

Handing - If the window has a pane or panel that slides horizontally handing is used to specify which pane is the operable side. This method is base on looking at the window from the outside (exterior) looking inside (interior).

Color - The color of the window frame. Typical colors are white, almond, tan and green and will change depending upon manufacturer and product type.

Frame Type - Various frame options are available depending upon how the window will be installed and the material of the wall it is installed into. The three most popular frame types are defined below:
Nail On -
Used for a new construction project.
Flush Fin -
A replacement window with flush fin is used when replacing an existing aluminum sliding window. This is the most commonly used replacement window type.
Block Frame -
A block frame window is used when replacing the wood sash of an old double hung wood window.
Sloped Sill Adapter- A sloped sill adapter is used to cover the gap between the old sloped sill window and the new block frame window. It adapts a new window to the existing sloping sill.

Glass Type - There are a multitude of glass types and thicknesses available for various applications. Click here for descriptions of the glass types we offer.

Grid/Grille Pattern - A term referring to the pattern created by windowpane dividers or muntins, usually a type of assembly which may be detached for cleaning or is installed between two panes of glass. See Grid Pattern Page for configuration illustrations.

Breather Tubes - A small metal tube that is placed into an insulated unit's spacer to equalize pressure differences. Breather tubes can allow moisture to enter into the insulating unit.

Argon Gas - Argon is a safe, odorless, colorless, non-toxic, non-flammable inert gas that is commonly used in place of air between the glass panes of an insulated Low-E glass unit to reduce temperature transfer.

Low E - A common term used to refer to glass which has low emissivity due to a film or metallic coating on the glass or suspended between the two lights of glass to restrict the passage of radiant heat.

Tempered Glass - Glass manufactured to withstand greater than normal forces on its surface. When it breaks, it shatters into small pieces to reduce hazard. Standard on all doors and large fixed windows.
