• Slider windows

The “Double-hung window” is not an official name though, you know it by its common features with two large frame units surrounding glass that slide up and down on the track. This type of windows is commonly used in traditional houses and often in traditional modern houses.
“Double-hung with muntins” is the simple variation of double-hung windows in which the larger sashes are subdivided into smaller panes within the larger frames, using a grid of horizontal and vertical muntins. This type may suit those who like a colonial style of windows.
“Casement window” refers to the style which cranks open horizontally on hinges mounted on one side at the top and bottom, one side remains stationary, while the other side of the window pivots open like a door. This type is basically used in modern style houses.
“Awning windows” are almost similar to the casement windows and they are used frequently in low-level windows where intruders might be a problem or in a wet climate where you want to open the window in the time of reining.
“Slider windows” are mechanically quite simple, consisting of side-by-side windows that slide horizontally along the top and bottom tracks. This type is popular in mid-century modern home styles.
“Fixed windows” type is a little bit different from other flexible types as they are fixed glass pane within a window frame that does not open or close. It is used to provide views or lights and where it doesn’t need ventilation or egress.
“Roof windows or skylights” refer to the type which is installed in the roofline while a roof window refers to a similar window that can be closed and opened. These are commonly used for introducing light into attic spaces or upstairs.
“Bay or bow windows” are the combinations of windows that together form a unit that together extends towards the wall surface of the house. It is used as a visual centerpiece in a large living room.
“Glassdoor windows” refers to the fixed windows made with architectural glass blocks, usually mortared in a place. These types are most commonly used in bathrooms or other spaces where you want to introduce lights.
