A regular window typically has two panes of glass. The top pane is fixed or slides down and the bottom pane slides up. These windows can be all different sizes. These windows can also be flipped on their side as slider windows and open horizontally.
This window would count as one Regular Window in our Estimator Tool.
Divided Light Windows
Divided light windows or french windows have dedicated dividers on top of the glass separating the glass into smaller panes. You should be able to feel the dividers on top of the glass.
If you are not sure whether the window is a true divided light window or a faux divided light window, run your finger over one of the visible frames. If you can feel the divider, then you have divided light windows. If you do not feel the divider, you have faux divided light windows. Faux divided light windows are considered regular windows for our purposes.
This window would count as one Divided Light Window in our Estimator Tool.
Casement windows can either have a crank that allows the window to open outward, or can be stationary fixed windows. They vary in size and style. They are counted as individual windows.
Side by Side Windows
Windows can be set in various patterns and arrangements. While there may be two or more separate windows inside of one window opening, for the purposes of our estimate, make sure you count each window individually. The windows set side by side in this example would count as three windows.
In this particular example, the windows are faux divided light windows and therefore count as three Regular Windows in our estimator.
The doors in this example would be counted as two Regular Windows in our Estimator Tool.
Transom window are windows typically placed above other windows. They vary in size and style. They are counted as individual windows. If there are single panes they are counted as regular windows and if they have dividers on top of the glass they are counted as divided light windows.
The Transom window in this example would count as one Regular Window in our Estimator Tool.
