Infographic - What's to know about
Window Styles

When we talk about window style, we are referring to the operable style of the window (how it works), as opposed to the aesthetic style (look), or the window type (material). Different window styles provide alternative ways to operate a window. For example, a hung window opens up and down, while a casement window swings out to open.

Choosing the right style of window depends on where the window will be located, how it interacts with your home, and your own personal taste. There are advantages and disadvantages to every style of window. To help you decide which window style is best for you, check out our window styles infographic.
