Fixed Glass

What is a fixed glass window?

  • Fixed glass is commonly referred to as a picture window. A fixed glass window does not open or function and often contains no grids, thus the name fixed glass. This is a common option to choose picture windows for spaces overlooking a beautiful backyard or a nice view you would like to enhance. Fixed glass can often make your space feel and appear much larger due to the lack of sashes or grids obstructing your view.


What is a single-hung window?

  • Single-hung windows are windows that are divided into two sections, with one single sash opening or sliding, thus the name single hung. These windows offer a classic look and can serve as a versatile option for any space, this is why it is one of the most commonly chosen window styles. Single hung windows are easy to open so you can enjoy fresh air on a nice day, but they offer a unique functionality in which the lower sash is able to be tilted in for easy cleaning from the inside of the home.


What is a double-hung window?

  • Double-hung windows look similar to single-hung windows, as they are divided into two sections, but both sashes slide or open, thus the name double hung.
  • Double-hung windows are also similar to single-hung windows with their function, but both sashes tilt in for easy cleaning. Double-hung windows are less common than single hung windows, but are most commonly used upstairs on a two story home due to the ease of cleaning they offer.
