Aesthetic beauty, security and utility are all included with a Vista casement window. Casement windows crank out, acting like a door on a hinge. They can open outward to either the left or the right, and can be joined together (mulled). It is not uncommon to see double casement and triple casement combinations.
An awning window is similar to a casement turned on its side, except that it has different hardware. This special hardware allows it to hinge at the top and open towards the outside from the bottom.
Casements and awnings can be combined in many ways to create very dramatic palladian-style window walls. These combination window walls can improve the entire look and feel of your home.
Hopper windows are windows somewhat similar to awning windows, yet in reverse. Hoppers are hinged at the bottom of the window and open up from the top falling into the inside of the home. Hoppers are commonly used in basements.
