Common types of house windows are casements, double-hung, picture window, awning and gliding. A casement window is a hinged window that swings in and out as opposed to being pushed up or down. It can be left or right-handed.
A double-hung window is a type of window that has two panels that users can push up or down to open and close. A picture window is one that doesn't open, but allows a view without the interference of center rails or mullions. An awning window resembles a casement window but is hinged at the top, and a gliding window has a panel that slides right or left to open.
