National Brands

Paul Hamilton Roofing & Construction can install vinyl replacement windows from virtually any national manufacturer, such as Vinylmax®, Pella®, and Ply Gem®. We prefer Vinylmax because of its quality, construction, and warranty. Ask to sit down with your Paul Hamilton Roofing & Construction representative to discuss all the options when planning your next replacement window project.

Energy Efficient

Vinyl windows offer greater thermal protection (measured in "U-Value" and Solar Hear Gain Coefficient "SHGC") than other types of windows such as wood and aluminum. The difference is simply in the type of material used to construct the frame of the window. The same types of glass and glass options are available for most types of frame construction, but vinyl frames currently have the best thermal protection available.

Window Styles/Types

Single Hung Vinyl Window

Single hung windows have two sashes, an upper and a lower. On single hung windows only the lower sash operates, moving up and down.

Double Hung Vinyl Window Double hung windows have two sashes, an upper and a lower. On double hung windows both the upper and lower sashes operate, moving up and down. Many vinyl windows allow for the sashes to tilt inward for easy cleaning.

Casement Vinyl Window Casement windows are hinged on one side, allowing for a crank to operate the window and open like a door to the outside.
Slider Vinyl Window Slider windows consist of two or three panels. At least one panel - and sometimes more - operate by sliding on a track back and forth.
Bay & Bow Vinyl Window Bay windows consist of three panels, two set at 30, 45, or even 90 degree angles and a large center panel. The whole unit projects outside the wall, creating a nook or sitting area on the interior. Bow windows are similar but have more panels, creating a larger cove.
Awning Vinyl Windows Awning windows are horizontal windows that are hinged at the top, allowing for operation by a crank.
Vinyl Picture Window Picture windows come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Picture windows are fixed and non-operational.
Hopper Vinyl Windows Hopper windows are similar to awning windows except that they are hinged at the bottom and operate manually by pulling them inward.
Specialty Vinyl Windows Specialty, or geometric windows, are any type of window that is not rectangular. Some may operate, but most are fixed and non-operational.
