Residential Windows & Doors For Custom Homes
If you’re looking for window systems that are a cut above the rest, give A Cutting Edge Glass & Mirrors a call today. We have a vast selection of beautiful, energy-efficient custom windows for your brand-new or aged residential home.
The modern residential home is made up of many different styles of window. If we didn’t have windows inlets, we would have no source of ambient or natural light from the sun or the moon. Windows have evolved dramatically over the past twenty years into both beautiful and energy efficient marvels. Now you’re able to enjoy the many benefits of windows while remaining energy efficient and conservative. Here at A Cutting Edge Glass & Mirror, we offer the following types of window systems as well as custom solutions specially designed for your residential home.
- Double-Hung Windows. This type of window has two sashes that slide vertically up and down in the frame
- Casement Windows. These hinged windows operate by a turn of a crank in an operating mechanism
- Awning Windows
- Picture Window
- Transom Window
- Slider Windows
- Stationary Windows
- Bay or Bow Windows
- And custom solutions to fit any custom home and its needs
Double-hung windows are a beautiful choice when it comes to window systems, from classic to contemporary. Double-hung windows can be raised from the bottom or lowered from the top for two levels of ventilation. The sashes also tilt in for convenient and easy cleaning.
These hinged windows operate by a turn crank operating mechanism. Casement Windows are built to be hinged on either the left or the right, allowing them to open outward. Casement windows are often held open using a casement stay. Windows hinged at the top are referred to as awning windows, and ones hinged at the bottom are called hoppers.
Awning windows are hinged at the top and swing outward from the bottom. They offer an aesthetically appealing and functional solution for your home. They glide open and shut at the turn of one easy-to-reach handle. Awning windows compliment any home, adding architectural interest and appeal, allowing ambient light to flood into your home. We carry a vast assortment of industry-leading awning window systems here at A Cutting Edge Glass & Mirror.
Picture windows are fixed windows that do not open. They are usually installed in hard to reach places; they allow the natural ambient light to flow into your home from outside. For unobstructed views where ventilation is not a concern, picture windows are the ideal solution. Picture Windows provide functional quality as well as aesthetic appeal to any home. Picture windows create a portrait-like space on walls – hence the word “picture” in their name.
In residential & commercial architecture, a transom window has a transverse horizontal structural beam or bar, or a crosspiece that separates a door from a window above it. In contrast with a traditional mullion, which is a vertical structural member. Transom Windows can be designed as a fixed installation or a mechanical. The mechanical or operational product allows for air-flow.
Slider Windows are designed to glide along a track; traditional sliding windows have at least one operating window that slides horizontally over or past the other window. Slider Windows are frequently found to be used in modern or contemporary-style homes.
Stationary windows are a fixed or static design, which means that they do not open like most windows, they can be customized in nearly any angle or shape you require. Often found in modern and or contemporary-style homes in conjunction with operating (windows that mechanically open) windows.
Bay or Bow Windows
Traditionally, bay or bow style windows allow for additional interior space; they’re designed to protrude out from the exterior home structure. Bay windows utilize multiple styles of window systems, commonly employing a sizeable stationary window in the center that’s flanked by either double-hung windows or casement style windows.
