Types of Vinyl Windows
Also called a gliding window, this is one of the most common window types. It is usually comprised of 2 sashes that slide left and right (Note: Sashes are the frames that hold the window pane. They are also called panels). It is ideal for small spaces as it doesn't open into a room. You can have a single slider window where only one sash moves horizontally or a double slider window where both sashes move.
Casement windows have a sash that moves in and out along its entire length to open horizontally, like a door.
They are operable with a hand crank and screens are optional.
Single-Hung & Double-Hung Windows:
These windows are also common. Both the single-hung and double-hung window have 2 sashes, a bottom sash and a top sash.
A single-hung window's bottom sash can be opened up and down while a double-hung window's sashes both move up and down.
These windows have hinges along the top and open outwards from the bottom.
This type of window is fixed in place and is often used as a statement piece for viewing the outdoors. It is unlikely to have any grid patterns to obstruct one's view. Generally, these windows are larger and are often used in living rooms.
Bay and Bow Windows
A bay or bow window projects outward from a wall to create an open space that often houses a seating area or a counter.
Bay windows have edges while bow windows are curved.
Of course, vinyl windows can come in other shapes that are circular, arched, or simply your own custom design.

“I am writing to thank you for your excellent work in replacement windows. To be honest, I am so used to shoddy workmanship that I was more than pleasantly surprised with the speed, quality, workmanship and demeanor of the gentlemen you sent to install the windows. I tend to “hover” when I hire a contractor, but in this case every time I checked out the progress of the work your team was one step ahead of my concerns. One of my neighbors was so impressed that she rang the doorbell to get the name of the company I used. I was only too glad to highly recommend Budget Windows & Doors to her. Thank you for the way you handled my account from start to finish.” – V.T. Greico
