Double-hung windows are the most popular window style ‒ and, in fact, are the most-used window throughout the country. A double-hung is the classic residential window, composed of a set of vertical sashes that both slide up and down. What’s immediately apparent about an A1 Windows double-hung window is its stylish beauty. What might not be so easy to see – until you get your next power bill – is how energy efficient vinyl double-hung windows are.
Single-hung windows are another classic residential window, composed of a set of vertical sashes where the bottom slides up and down and the top is stationary. This allows for the top sash to be either rectangular or arched (shaped).
Sliding windows are like double- hung windows but turned 90 degrees horizontally. They feature at least two sashes, with at minimum one sash sliding horizontally past another. They create a contemporary look while allowing in breezes from multiple directions. Sliders look great in homes with relatively low ceilings, but with plenty of horizontal space along the wall. In addition, a sliding window has a more contemporary appearance than the colonial-style double hung, so this could be ideal if you happen to prefer a more modern look.
Picture windows from A1 allow you to create a dramatic, artistic effect inside your home by beautifully framing your view of the scenery outside. These types of windows come in all shapes and sizes, and are fixed windows, rather than made to be opened and closed. Because picture windows are stationary and manufactured to industry-leading standards, they are among the most energy-efficient windows you can find.
Casement windows are hinged on the side and open outward to the left or right. Usually taller than wide, their entire sash opens to provide top-to-bottom ventilation. Additionally the screen is on the inside, making cleaning a breeze with hinge options that can open up to 90* to allow for cleaning the outside surface from the inside of your home.
Awning windows are the horizontal version of a casement window, meaning they’re hinged on the top and open outward from the bottom. In this case, they are usually wider than tall. They look almost identical to a picture window because unlike double hung or sliding windows, an awning or casement window has no rail. These windows are especially weathertight because the window seal meets the sash straight on. If you’re installing windows over a sink, countertop or appliance, a window with a crank – such as an awning or casement- could be the perfect solution.
Our vinyl windows offer superior water and air resistance due to their expertly engineered sash and frame systems. Poorly designed windows can leak air in many places. A1’s windows excel in minimizing air infiltration by incorporating innovative sill and sash design and top-of-the-line weatherstripping.
Many of our windows offer a foam filled sash. This thermal foam increases the overall energy efficiency and rigidity of the window. We include the foam filled sash option on every window the engineers approved compatibility with. For added protection and strength we have partnered with our manufacturers to offer K-Beam™ thermal reinforcement with Kevlar for select window models.
