No matter how big your dreams or how small your budget, Andersen and Marcus Lumber have the right windows and doors for your home. Understanding which window is right for you and your space is what we love to do! Here’s a breakdown on the types of windows available.

Casement windows are hinged on the side and crank open outward to the left or right allowing for full top to bottom ventilation. Common above kitchen sinks, casement windows give you the flexibility to group them in stunning combinations.
Double-Hung windows have two operating sash that move up and down allowing for ventilation on the top, bottom or both.
Single-Hung windows allow ventilation through a single operable lower sash. Both offer easy cleaning from inside your home and remain flush with the wall, making them ideal for patios or walkways.
Gliding windows operate in a horizontal fashion to allow for full top to bottom ventilation. Because the sash do not open outward they are an excellent choice for rooms that face walkways, porches or decks.
Bay and bow windows are created by combining three or more windows together so that they angle out beyond the house wall. They can be casement, double-hung or picture units depending on the need. By using more windows, bay and bow windows allow more light in and also give you extra space inside your room.
Awning windows are hinged on the top and open outward from the bottom, allowing for ventilation and protection from the rain. Often placed higher on walls for privacy or in combination with large stationary windows for a better view.
Entertain more easily by connecting your outdoor deck, pool or patio to the inside of your home with a pass-through window. The space-saving designs serve as an important access point from one space to another. These multi-functional windows occupy less space than an open door but still offer ample convenience, ventilation and natural light.
