Awning windows create a unique look in that the hinges are at the top and the window opens out and upward. They act as great accent pieces below double hung windows or as singular windows in areas like hallways, upper bedrooms, basements and open living spaces. They are unique in that they block rain from coming in while still allowing the cool coastal breeze to penetrate.
Bay windows are a beautiful accent to your home's interior and exterior because of their versatility. By opening an additional seating space in your home, they can give smaller rooms in your house the added illusion of a larger room. Bay windows are a popular window style for kitchens, because it allows for spaces to grow herbs or just act as an accent piece for flowers and houseplants.
Casement windows provide maximum ventilation because they open at a 90° angle. These windows are hinged on the side and are primarily opened using a hand crank located at the button of the window. Casement windows add old style charm to a home and can be used in a variety of areas including attics and upper level rooms. BUT-because of their ventilation, large casement windows can even be used in living and dining rooms in milder climates.
Double Hung Windows
Double Hung windows are a popular choice among Houston residents because of their versatility, functionality and storm weather resistance. Simonton offers a Storm Breaker Plus series that consists of reinforced vinyl profiles with impact-resistant laminated glass. This window is tested to meet building codes in most coastal areas. The vinyl construction offers superior thermal performance and is virtually maintenance free.
