When most people walk into the showroom at Ohio Roofing & Siding, they are often overwhelmed by the number of options when it comes to windows. With a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles to choose from, you can find the right window to fit the needs of every room of your home.

Here’s a complete list of the types of windows and how they can best function in your home.

Stationary windows

This is a basic window that does not open but can be installed to fit any shape or angle in your home.

Double-hung windows

These windows can be opened by sliding it up and down, or releasing the side latches so you can swing the window inward. Swinging the window inward makes it easy to clean the outside of the window, especially if there isn’t easy access outdoors.

Casement windows

These hinged windows open outward by using a crank. They can be hinged on either the left or right side of the window.

Awning windows

This unique window is hinged at the top and swings outward to let air in. They are commonly installed above or below stationary windows, but can also be installed alongside them.

Picture windows

These large stationary windows let in a great deal of light and are ideal for rooms that face breathtaking landscape or natural scenery.

Transom windows

Mounted above fixtures such as doors, windows or even bath tubs, transom windows are narrow and be either stationary or fitted with hinges.

Slider windows

These windows slide (as the name suggests) from side to side and are commonly found in modern and contemporary homes.

Bay or Bow windows

These windows enlarge your interior space because they extend past the siding of your home. They’re often a combination of window types including stationary, double-hung and casements.
