Windows by Type San Diego

Choosing the right windows is very important as it’s not only a reflection of your style but also an improvement in the overall appeal of your home or office. That could mean raising its market value or saving a significant amount of money through increased energy efficiency. With countless options on the market, choosing the right windows for your home or office can be hard. There are a lot of factors to consider and a lot of questions that need to be answered. Are you building your dream home or planning to replace your existing windows? Are you looking to get more natural light in your home or improve thermal characteristics? Do you need windows that are easily operated? Do you prefer easy cleaning and maintenance? Is your priority blocking the elements or reducing outside noise? No matter what your priorities are, US Window & Door has the solution that best fits your needs.

We’ve provided a short overview of the most popular window options we offer. This should help you gain a better understanding of what’s available and what’s the best use for each type of window. It’s also possible you’ll find a window type you weren’t even familiar with or find a new use for a particular window type in your home or office.

Sliding Windows

With an easy-to-use design, great energy efficiency, and a wide variety of configurations, sliding windows are a fantastic choice for your home or office. Made from vinyl, wood, aluminum, and fiberglass, these windows are easy to operate, stylish and provide lots of natural light with an unobstructed view of the outdoors. Sliding windows are also perfect for large spaces due to their wide design that offers an elegant look as well as maximum ventilation. These features make them an ideal choice for rooms where only one window is present. Sliding windows also open and close without protruding, so they're ideal for rooms facing walkways, porches, or patios.
Horizontal sliding windows open by sliding the sash left or right. In a single slider, one sash slides to open while the other one is fixed. In a double slider, both sashes open. In single hung vertical sliding windows, the bottom sash moves up while the top sash is fixed. Double-hung sliding windows allow moving both the bottom and top sash. These features allow sliding windows to be easily cleaned from the inside of your home. Sliding windows can also serve as a great emergency exit. Due to a simple design and easy maintenance, sliding windows tend to outlast other types of windows. US Window & Door proudly offers and installs Milgard's amazing horizontal and vertical sliding windows with unlimited combinations of features, materials, colors, glass, energy efficiency and security options.

Casement Windows

The earliest form of movable window, casement windows have been present in homes around the world since medieval times. Casement windows are attached to the frame via one or more hinges at the side so they open outward like doors. They're used singly or in pairs inside a common frame and screens for the windows are placed on the inside. This allows better protection from the elements. Casement windows offer better ventilation control than flush-opening windows which makes them ideal for natural ventilation, particularly in hot climates. While some windows are simply pushed open, most have a hand crank. Since the sash closes by pressing against the frame, casement windows seal very well and generally have lower air leakage than sliding windows. This makes them a superior energy-efficient solution and provides more value for your home or business. Casement windows come in many sizes and present an excellent choice for areas that are hard to reach because they can be operated with one hand. The flat frame gives casement windows a clean, timeless look that fits almost any architectural style, while their versatility makes them a popular choice for many applications. They're usually placed over a sink, countertop or appliance. Due to their simple design, casement windows are easy to clean. Made from vinyl, wood, aluminum, and fiberglass, along with numerous options of colors, materials, glass types and grids, Milgard's casement windows sold and installed by US Window & Door are energy-efficient, reliable and elegant solution for any home or office.

Picture Windows

Picture windows are fixed and do not open. They provide a clear portrait-like view of the outdoors, hence the word ``picture`` in the name. The ideal place for them are places that are out of reach, to allow more natural light into a room. They're also the perfect choice in places where ventilation is not a concern or areas that may be susceptible to drafts. Picture windows don't have any moving parts that can break or need replacing, so they're cheaper to maintain than standard windows. Since they don't open, picture windows offer unmatched energy efficiency. Insulated glass is a great option for these windows where two or more panes of glass have hermetically sealed air space between them. Optional inert gas like argon or krypton can be used to further improve energy efficiency and savings. These characteristics make picture windows an ideal option for homes with tall walls and high ceilings. The best place for a picture window is a location with a great view of something you like seeing every day. A wise investment, picture windows present a great way to add natural beauty to your home. Aside from being stylish and beautiful, they're also energy-efficient and affordable. US Window & Door offers and installs tried and true picture windows from Milgard. With a wide variety of materials, colors, glass types, styles and grids, we can guarantee you'll find the perfect option for you.

Garden Windows

Garden windows extend out from the wall and usually have an interior shelf for flowers, herbs and anything else you want to display. If you're looking to create a small in-home haven for your plants or grow your own organic herbs in the kitchen throughout the year regardless of weather, garden windows are the right choice for you. They can make a huge difference in the feel and energy of your room. Garden windows have a unique angled design with side panels. This ensures your plants get the most sunlight possible. Side panels can also be opened for extra ventilation. Custom shapes and sizes of these windows make them an attractive design element and provide additional appeal and value to your home. Due to their versatility, they can be used in a variety of combinations. If you're looking for a way to refresh your living areas without breaking the bank, garden windows are a fantastic option to provide a warm, inviting atmosphere for your family and friends. As all other products made by Milgard, garden windows come in many shapes, sizes and combinations of material, glass, colors and operating options. At US Window & Door, we'll help you find the ideal garden window for your home.

Bay Windows

Bay windows are a group of connected windows of varying widths that extend outward from a wall at desired angles. This provides additional available space in the room ideal for a cozy nook, a window seat or an ideal way to maximize the view and allow for increased ventilation and additional light. These characteristics can make bay windows the focal point of any room. If you're looking to add a dash of style to your home, bay windows might be the perfect solution. Similar to a bay window, a bow window is usually made of four or more windows joined at equal angles in order to provide a more even curve. Bow windows make a great addition to any living room or master bedroom accentuating the view and dividing it into different planes. Just like bay windows, bow windows are designed to bring more light into a room and give it a feeling of spaciousness. For both bay and bow windows, any of the window panels can have a distinct operating style, such as a casement or single hung design. Milgard offers bay and bow windows made from aluminum, fiberglass or vinyl. On top of that, there are numerous combinations of operating styles, colors, glass types and grids, so the possibilities are endless.

Double Hung Window

On double-hung windows, both sashes in the frame are operable and can move up or down. They can be operated from either the top or the bottom sash which slide up or down for unmatched ventilation and air circulation. Since double hung windows slide to open and close and require no additional space for operation, they're an ideal choice for areas facing walkways, porches or patios or other scenarios where space is limited. The option of opening and tilting each sash inward also allows for easy cleaning. An extremely popular choice for many homeowners, double-hung windows offer the ultimate combination of traditional style and modern technology. An elegant choice for both traditional and contemporary homes, this all-purpose window also accommodates air conditioners and lasts longer with less maintenance required. Advanced security options are available for your peace of mind, while energy efficiency features provide increased value and decreased heating and cooling expenses. Just like all other windows, Milgard offers double-hung windows with a variety of options to choose from. Different materials, dimensions, features, colors, grids, security, and energy efficiency options ensure you will find the combination that perfectly suits your needs.
