Common Terms Related to Buying Windows

If you're looking to replace the windows in your home or car, you'll be hearing a variety of terms with which you may not be familiar. The same is true if you are installing brand new windows, for example adding on a patio that will have sliding glass doors. Keep the following terms in mind as you shop for windows, and you'll have an easy time conversing with salespersons and contractors about your upcoming replacement or new installation project.

  • Pane - A sheet of glass. Windows may have one or two panes and are called single or double-paned, respectively.
  • Vinyl - Polymer made from thermoplastic commonly used for windows. It is sometimes referred to as PVC.
  • Frame - Structure that surrounds a window or doorway and holds it in place. Frames are usually made from wood, aluminum or vinyl.
  • Sashes - Part of the frame that separates panes of glass within a window.
  • Tint - Refers to glass that has been installed with a special film, which is meant to reduce the amount of sunlight that enters a home or car. Tinted glass usually has a darker appearance than windows that have not tint.
