At Thermo Expert we offer a wide array of window styles and solutions.

Bay/Bow

A unique combination of 3 or more windows within a single frame, typically with a fixed in the middle and either double hung or casements on the sides of it. A bay or bow window projects outward from the exterior wall of the home, making the home feel bigger and brighter and accentuates the feel of the outdoors. Whether it’s a gently arching bow or an angled bay, this style brings added dimension and sunlight to your interior space.

Casement

These hinged windows operate by a turn of a crank mechanism. They can be hinged from the left or right and open outward typically.

Double Hung

This type of window has 2 sashes that slide up and down vertically within the frame. The sashes can open wide from either the top or bottom. They remain inside the frame so they do not protrude out to the exterior or interior of your house.
