Below is a summary:</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <ol> <li>Single/Double Hung Windows -&nbsp;&nbsp;Window is made of two independent sashes that are hung in a frame.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Popular on traditional style homes.&nbsp; There are two separate sashes where one slides behind the other.&nbsp; Many are designed so the sashes tilt in for ease in cleaning.&nbsp; Screens are designed to go on the outside.&nbsp; Costs vary based on sash material (vinyl or wood).</li> <li>Sliding Windows - Sash slides horizontally (vs. vertically on double hung windows).&nbsp; Good for ranch homes or any home with horizontal design lines.&nbsp; Screens are designed to go on the outside.&nbsp; Maximizes the amount of glass for light and views.&nbsp; Large variation in cost based on size and design.</li> <li>Casement Windows - &nbsp;The window is a single sash that's attached to a frame on one side. Hinges, or a hinge, is used to make the attachment, allowing the window to swing exactly like a door.&nbsp; Casement windows are often used on contemporary design homes.&nbsp; Window&nbsp;swing out and are operated by a crank (a retractable crank is available).&nbsp;Screens are installed on the interior.&nbsp; Expect to pay more for these windows, but they have the advantage of creating a better seal for improved energy efficiency and increased security.</li> <li>Awning Windows - These windows operate mechanically with a crank but is hinged from the top so the sash pivots in lieu of swinging.&nbsp; This style is suited to both traditional and contemporary home designs.&nbsp; The advantage of an awning window is that it can be open when it is raining because it creates a "mini awning".&nbsp; Pricing is similar to that of casement windows.</li> <li>Hopper Windows - This design is similar to the awning window, however the bottom of the window is hinged so&nbsp;the top&nbsp;tilts in.&nbsp; Excellent choice for&nbsp; easy-to-clean windows which can be opened slightly to allow in fresh air.&nbsp; Because of the tilt in feature you do have to be aware of furniture placement on the interior.&nbsp; Cost of these windows is usually high due to the mechanical operation and dual operation.</li> </ol> <p>Hopefully this information will help you make an educated decision on which window design is right for your home.&nbsp;

You have the right to have your automotive glass replaced at the glass shop of your choice.&nbsp; The correct answer is True!&nbsp; If you have ever had to file a claim for any type of automotive damage, whether it was a minor fender bender or a simple windshield replacement, it is ultimately your decision to take your vehicle wherever you feel the most comfortable for the repairs.&nbsp;
