Are you looking for replacement windows or the right window style for your new home? You have a lot of different options! One of the biggest decisions is which style of window to choose. Tilt windows—also called tilt turn windows or tilt and turn windows—are appealing to many homeowners in the Washington, DC area. They are perfect in design and functionality and are widely popular across Europe and Asia.
When tilt windows are closed, there are several locking points that ensure safety as well as an airtight fit. In the tilted position, the top tilts in, creating about six inches of ventilation space. Flip the handle and you can open the window just like any swing window.
