Should You Invest in Double-Hung Windows?

Double-Hung WindowsWhen it comes to window selection, you will need to select more than just the type of glass. You will also need to choose the style of window. Your options are diverse and include double-hung windows. This variety offers multiple benefits both on visual and functional levels.

What Is a Double Hung Window?

A double-hung window is a type of sash window. The sash window contains movable panels known as “sashes” that border the glass. The sash enables the window to slide open or tilt outward. A double-hung window variant contains two sash windows, one above the other within the frame. This differs from a single-hung style, which has a single sash window, or two windows with the top one fixed in place.

The Advantages of Double-Hung Windows

On average, double-hung windows cost about 10% to 20% more than single-hung. While that doesn’t seem like a whole lot, it does add up if you’re planning to replace most or every window in the home.

If you’re willing to invest in double-hung windows, however, you will benefit in several ways. For one, it makes the window easier to clean, especially the part facing out. With single-hung window, reaching the outer portion of the fixed upper window can be tricky, particularly if it’s a second-floor window. Double-hung types are also compatible with most home styles and can accommodate other additions like a screen.
