TYPES OF WINDOWS & DOORS
DOUBLE HUNG WINDOWS
Double hung windows are one of the most popular types of windows in Louisiana. Our manufacturer’s double-hung windows are available in vinyl, wood, wood clad and aluminum clad. They provide traditional details that will make your project timeless. The adjustable sash on a double-hung window offers two operating movements. It can be lowered, letting air in through the top or it can be raised, letting air in through the bottom of the window.
SINGLE HUNG WINDOWS
Unlike double hung windows, where both sashes in the window frame are operable or move up and down, a single hung window's top sash is fixed in place and does not move, but the bottom sash is operable. Sometimes, a single hung also offers a unique option to incorporate a geo shape option into the top sash.
HORIZONTAL SLIDING WINDOWS
Available in both single and double options. Sliding windows are durable, versatile and easy to use, while also offering the maximum amount of light and air to infiltrate your home.
Picture windows, also known as fixed windows are mainly installed in difficult to reach places to let in light. They are also a popular choice for letting in natural light without cold air in areas of a room that may be most susceptible to drafts.
Casement windows feature window sashes attached to the frame by one or more hinges. They are hinged on the side and can either swing inwards or outwards, depending on the desired style. They are ideal for providing full ventilation, light and are extremely easy to clean. Casement windows have become increasingly popular in modern architecture and construction.
Standard sliding patio doors open by sliding along horizontal tracks at the head and sill. A sliding door can be designed for either a right-hand or left-hand operation. Sliding doors are a great option for tight-fitted spaces.
Terrace Doors have either single or double panels and are typically hinged – swinging inwards or outwards, they are essentially lighter duty versions of most entrance doors. They seal out weather and noise.
