Window
Types

You may find this page helpful when identifying your window types. We are always available to discuss over the phone or visit in person to provide an estimate for your project.

Casement Windows

Window with a hinged sash that swings out like a door. These may be a solid sheet of glass or individually divided lites in which the mullions are not removable.

Double-Hung Windows

Two sashes to these windows – Top Sash and Bottom Sash. The mullions may be removable or not. These windows should slide up and down.

Transom Windows

These windows are located above a window or door transom, from where they derived their name. These come in many styles such as single or multi-pane, straight, rounded, etc.

Thermal Pane Windows

Two pieces of glass on each sash. They are insulated between the outer sheet of glass and the inner sheet of glass. Most have removable mullions or mullions that are already between the glass.

Storm Windows

Storm windows are a separate frame that has been installed on the outside of the original window to help with insulation.

Note: for outside only window cleaning on windows with storms, we DO NOT clean any glass between the storm windows. We ONLY clean the outside of the outer-most pieces of glass.

Tilt-in Thermal Pane Windows

Windows who’s individual sashes can be raised and tilted in to allow all cleaning from the inside. A majority of the time we prefer to clean these windows from the outside and do not utilize the “tilt-in” capabilities; however, sometimes we do need to tilt in a window or two on the job.

Fixed Windows

Fixed windows cannot be opened. Many times they are smaller in size. Fixed windows can have single or multiple panes.

Sliding Windows

These windows are basically a smaller version of a sliding glass door. They are also similar to double hung windows except they are turned on their side. Individual sashes will slide left to right instead of up and down.
