Alamo Exteriors window types
Picture Window

A picture window is stationary and doesn’t not open. It allows for larger size windows. This window is ideal when the homeowner wants to maximize his view to the outside world.

Double-hung and Single-hung Windows

The Double-hung window consists of two operating sash panels. The top panel can be lowered, and the bottom panel can be raised. Both sashes can be locked, removed or tilted. The Single-hung window only has the bottom panel movable. Due to the panels these windows are easy to clean from the inside

Sliding Window

A sliding window allows for optimal ventilation when it is opened, and natural light to enter when it is closed. A sliding window has two panels that slide horizontally from side to side. The sash doesn’t open outward making this type of window a great choice for windows near walkways.

Casement Window

A casement window hinges on the side and cranks open to the left or the right. It allows for maximum ventilation and for easy cleaning from inside your home.

Awning Window

An awning window is hinged on the top so the window opens outward. This window allows for air to flow when open and protects against rain or leaves to enter. This window is often used in with large stationary windows.
