Identifying window parts

Windows have a language that's all their own. Our illustrated guide to window parts will help you describe what's wrong when you give us a call.



Making a service inquiry?
Please help us identify the window at issue

Most Wallside Windows have an ID number that will help us know the window's measurements and specifications.

Most Wallside Windows have an ID number that will help us know the window's measurements and specifications.

Wallside Windows made since April 2015 have unique code numbers printed on the lower right corner of the glass. Wallside Windows made between 2003 and 2015 have those numbers printed on the spacer between glass panes in the upper right or left corner of each sash. Please refer to this number, which we call a "unit ID," when contacting us about a service issue.

For windows without a unit ID, you can help us by providing the following information:

  • In what room is the window located?
  • How many windows are in the room?
  • Do the windows look the same size or is the window at issue larger or smaller?
  • Does the window operate up and down or side to side?
