When it comes to window options, you’ll need to select more than just the glass type. You’ll also need to choose the window style. Your choices are wide-ranging and include double-hung windows. This variety provides multiple benefits both on aesthetic and functional levels.
What Are Double-Hung Windows?
Double-hung windows are a type of sash windows. The sash window contains movable panels known as “sashes” that border the glass. The sash allows the window to slide open or tilt outward. A double-hung window 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 Benefits of Double-Hung Windows
On average, these windows are priced about 10% to 20% more than single-hung. While that doesn’t seem like a major difference, it does add up if you’re planning to replace more than one or every window in the home.
If you chose to invest in double-hung windows, though, you’ll benefit in multiple ways. For one, it makes the window easier to clean, particularly the part facing out. With single-hung windows, reaching the outer portion of the fixed upper window can be difficult, especially if it’s a second-floor window. Double-hung types are also compatible with most home types and can accommodate other add-ons like a mesh screen.
