Our most popular window style! These windows are often referred to as “crank-out” windows. This single sash window opens outward by rotating a crank that is attached to the frame. The screen is in inside and can be removed.
This operates just like a casement, but open UP! A screen is in the inside of the frame and comes with a lock. Typically, you see this style in basements.
Special Shape Windows
