Home Window Styles for Atlanta, Georgia & Surrounding Areas There are many issues to consider during a home window replacement project in the greater Atlanta, Georgia area. Many homeowners, for example, struggle with decisions about which home window manufacturer to use, what materials their windows should made from, how energy efficient their windows are, and whether or not the windows will provide good protection against storm damage. In addition to these matters, there is the question of what home window style will best fit their needs.

Home window styles can be broken down into 9 basic categories: single hung, double hung, awning, bay windows, bow windows, garden, picture windows, casement, and sliders. The good news is that if you are interested in replacing your home windows, often you can mix and match home window styles, as well as change styles from one to another. For example, wouldn't it be great to replace that old single hung window over your kitchen sink with a new slider window? This is one of the many perks of replacement windows; it is an investment that allows you to remove a hard-to-operate home window at your Atlanta, Georgia house and replace it with a more functional and beautiful one.

The following is a brief description of home window styles. Depending on building codes, it is possible that some of these home window styles are not offered in the Atlanta, Georgia area:

  • Single Hung Window - only one glass unit is moveable within the window pane. The most common single hung window has two glass units, one on top of the other. The top glass unit remains stationary. The bottom glass unit slides up and down to open or close the window.
  • Double Hung Window - has top glass unit and bottom glass unit in a single frame. Both glass units can slide up and down to open and close the window.
  • Awning - has hinges along the top and swings out from the bottom. True to its name, an awning window looks similar to an awning when it's open.
  • Bay Window - has three glass units. The center glass unit is flanked on either side by glass panels that are angled at 30 degrees or 45 degrees. This gives the bay window a 3-dimensional appearance, curving outward from the wall of your home.
  • Bow Window - similar to a bay window in its 3-dimensional effect, a bow window has 4 or more glass units which are arranged to give the window an outwardly arching shape.
  • Garden Window - also similar to a bay window, a garden window is a projecting window with three sides. Two of the sides can be opened for air flow. In addition, a garden window includes a glass top for sunlight and a bottom shelf for your houseplants.
  • Picture Window - an oversized home window that provides maximized views. A picture window is completely stationary because the glass is permanently fused into the frame. It cannot be opened or moved at all.
  • Casement Window - opens on hinges outward, similar to a door.
  • Slider Window - slides open horizontally, similar to a sliding glass door.
