- High quality vinyl windows will last longer than other windows.

- The superior installation reduces outside noise more effectively.
- They will not rot and are very durable.
Types of Vinyl Windows
While vinyl windows have been around since World War II, they didn’t take hold in the U.S. market until the 1990s. Since then, they’ve become the preferred window choice for discerning homeowners. Here are the the types of vinyl windows we can install in your home:
This is the basic vinyl window option. With single hung windows, the bottom sash moves up and down, while the top sash stays fixed. Single-hung windows are a great choice for rooms that face walkways, porches or patios, since they don’t protrude out.
Double hung windows can be operated from both the bottom and top sash. Both are also usually able to tilt in to clean or ventilate rooms.
Picture windows are non-operable windows that help eliminate the framing and increase window views. Picture windows can really open up a room if you are looking for a clean frameless look.
Casement windows are also an excellent choice for people looking for clear views of the outdoors, but in this case the windows can be opened by cranking out horizontally to allow for ventilation and even to pass through (in emergency situations).
Project-Out / Awning Windows
Project-out, or awning windows, project out from the bottom. They are often used in bathrooms and have gained in popularity recently since vinyl window manufacturers have started to offer them.
Horizontal Slider Windows
Horizontal slider windows open with the sash sliding left or right. These windows are popular in sunrooms and contemporary style homes.
