Infographic - What's to know about
window styles

Intro image for infographic on window styles
When we talk about window style, we are referring to the operable style of the window (how it operates - casement, awning, hung...), as opposed to the aesthetic style (look - Colonial, Victorian, modern...), or the window type (material - vinyl, wood, clad, Aluminum ...).

Window styles offer diverse operational options. For instance, hung windows open vertically, while casement windows swing outward. The choice of the ideal window style depends on factors such as the window's location, its interaction with your home, and personal preferences. Each style comes with its own set of pros and cons.

Explore our window styles infographic for guidance in selecting the perfect fit for your needs.
