Well first of all it would help if you told us what program it is you are using.

Usually when I do windows, I make a thin box for the window frame, and use boolean subtraction to make it more frame like. Then I would create a plane, which I would use as the glass pane.

Whatever method you use to model the windows really shouldn't effect the material that much. Too acheive the glass looking effect your bestbet is too use some refraction properties and also a little reflection to the glass. Again it would help me further if you told me what your using.

I use 3ds max, and if you do too, I can help you better in setting up a glass like material
