What Are Double-Hung Windows?

Double-hung windows have two operable sashes, both moving up and down to open allowing ventilation. Styles include a traditional 50/50 split, a Cottage style with a smaller upper sash, or an Oriel style that has a smaller lower sash. Different screen styles are available and are mostly on the exterior of the window.

With the option of a full screen, a desirable alternative is to vent from the top of the window along with the bottom. Certainly, the greatest advantage is that both sashes can tilt-in for ease of cleaning. This is especially desirable for homes that have multiple floors.

What Are Single-Hung Windows?

A single-hung window is a type of window with a lower operable sash but the upper sash that is fixed. This means that only the bottom part of the window slides up and down to provide ventilation.

The cost of a single-hung is typically less expensive because there are fewer moving parts, and it costs less to manufacture. Consider using a single-hung window for hard-to-reach spaces, such as over a kitchen sink, because a single venting sash will be easier to operate.

Double-Hung Window Materials

Wood/Clad – Wood/clad windows keep the beauty of natural wood on the interior while providing a low-maintenance exterior. Wood interiors can be stained or painted to match current colors in the home so they will blend like they were never replaced. The exterior clad low maintenance material is available in aluminum clad, vinyl, or fiberglass. Wood is inherently strong and will support large sizes and permit multiple window composites. Real wood is also a natural insulator allowing warmth and the reduction of sound. There are various glass options available for maximum energy efficiency and sound reduction.
Fiberglass – Fiberglass is stronger than vinyl and more affordable than wood/clad. These windows stand out for their strength, low maintenance, and good looks. The streamline contemporary design and clean lines allow for more visible glass that provides additional room light. These windows are available with wood interiors/fiberglass exteriors, or all fiberglass. There are various glass options available for maximum energy efficiency and sound reduction.
Vinyl – Vinyl windows offer the highest energy efficient available among all types. Vinyl windows from Home Path Windows & Doors are high quality, stronger than ordinary vinyl and easy on the budget. We offer vinyl windows with fully welded sashes and multi-chambered frames which assures strength and energy efficiency. Fade-resistant vinyl available in multiple colors including interior woodgrain if the look of natural wood is desired. This means no more painting! There are various glass options available for maximum energy efficiency and sound reduction.
