What Are Specialty Windows?

Our specialty windows include styles less common in the United States that offer unique beauty and operation that give your home an upscale, refined appeal. While these windows add a European flair to your home’s aesthetic, they can complement, or be a statement piece, in any number of homes.

  • French Casement — Side-by-side casement sashes that open from either side. With this style there is no center astragal, allowing for full ventilation and an unobstructed view.
  • Push Out Casement — A casement window that operates with a turn of a handle and gentle push rather than a hinge crank.
  • Push Out French Casement — Side-by-side casement sashes that open from the center with a gentle push. Provides the unobstructed view of a traditional French Casement with an alternative operation style.
  • In-Swing Casement — Opens into the interior of a room instead of out, this style operates with a “pull” motion rather than a crank.
  • In-Swing French Casement — Side-by-side in-swing sashes that open into the room.
  • Tilt-Turn — A common European window style, tilt-turn windows offer two ways to open the sash. Turn the handle 90 degrees to swing the sash into a room, or 180 degrees to tilt the sash in to vent from the top.
  • Hopper — Similar to an awning window, but vents at the top, opening into the interior of a room.

Frequently Asked Questions About Specialty Windows

What’s the Difference Between a Casement Window and a Push Out Casement Window?

Casement windows open with the turn of a crank handle. Push out casement windows open with the turn of a handle and a gentle push.

What’s the Difference Between a Casement Window and a French Casement Window?

Casement windows typically involve one sash that opens outward with the turn of a crank handle. A French casement window has two sashes that open outward from each side, providing unobstructed views and air flow.

What’s the Difference Between a Hopper and an Awning Window?

Both of these windows are horizontal and work best when placed high in a room or paired with other windows. However, the sash in a hopper window opens from the bottom of the frame while an awning opens from the top.

What Are the Advantages of In-Swing Windows?

One of the big advantages of an in-swing window is they’re easier to clean. Because it swings into the home rather than out, you can clean the window inside your home. Regular casement windows can be a hassle in bad weather or if they’re high up on your home.

Met with Don to get quotes on two windows for our house. He was very polite and very knowledgeable. Don was able to give us two different quotes based off our budget. I definitely recommend them just based on customer service alone.
