Choosing Between Double Hung and Single Hung Windows

Double hung and single hung windows are very similar to each other, except for one major difference.

Double Hung

On double hung windows both sash in the window frame are operable, meaning they move up and down. The sashes on a double hung window also tilt in for easy cleaning.

Single Hung

On single hung windows, the top sash is fixed in place and does not move or tilt in, but the bottom is operable.

Bottom line: If you live in a dusty area, the double hung window is easier to clean. Though if the windows are going to be on the first floor, cleaning a single hung from the outside may not be an issue.

What are Slider Windows?

A slider window is a window that opens by sliding the windows panes side to side on a track in the window frame. It’s a good window style choice when the size of the window is much wider than it is high.

These windows are available in single sliders with one moveable sash, 2-lite sliders where both sash move and a 3-lite slider for large openings that has a fixed picture window in the center with operable window sliders on each end.

Casement Windows

Casement windows open with a crank handle, where the window sash swings out from your home toward the outside. The window pane is hinged on one side and swings open. Casement windows provide maximum ventilation.
