Please help me identify this spider

Hi,

 

I have counted at least 5 of these spiders living around the exterior window frames of my house. I would really appreciate if someone could tell me what they are. Please excuse the poor photo.

    Its probably Zygiella X-notata, commonly known as the windowframe spider for the reason you describe.  Its also called the missing sector spider because its orb web is missing a single sector rather than being circularly complete.  Have a look for this feature to confirm the identification.
