Are you considering having vinyl replacement windows installed in your home? Vinyl is one of the most popular materials for house windows thanks to its durability and ease of maintenance. Vinyl windows come in a variety of styles, so before you can get started on your window replacement project, you’ll need to determine which types of vinyl windows will best meet your needs.
If you’re not sure about the different types of vinyl windows available to you and the best uses for each one, don’t worry. ALL-TIMATE ROOFING can provide the information you need to help you choose the perfect vinyl windows for your home.
Types of Vinyl Windows
Some of the most popular types of vinyl windows for homeowners include:
Double-hung windows are a traditional window style that features two operable sashes—meaning both the top and bottom window sash can open and close. They provide exceptional ventilation and can be installed in any room of your home.
Single-hung windows are similar to double-hung windows—except they only have one operable sash. The bottom sash can open and close to provide ventilation.
Also known as gliding windows, sliding windows open and close horizontally. They can let in plenty of fresh air, and they offer unobstructed views since they don’t have bars on the glass.
Casement windows are hinged on the side, allowing them to open and close to the left or right, similar to a door. They are typically operated by using a hand crank and are ideal for hard-to-reach areas, such as above a kitchen sink.
Awning windows are hinged at the top, opening from the bottom to create an awning. They can be opened while it’s raining without letting water into your home. Awning windows are commonly found in bathrooms and kitchens.
Picture windows are stationary windows that are often used to highlight architectural features. They mimic the appearance of a picture frame, framing the views around your home in an unobstructed view.

Regardless of which type of vinyl window you choose, you can feel good knowing that you’ve chosen windows that will perform. Vinyl is a durable material that won’t crack, rot, warp, or otherwise deteriorate, and it doesn’t require extensive maintenance to stay looking like new. Vinyl windows can also be installed in a vast array of colors, making it easy to customize them to suit your home’s unique aesthetic.
