Double Hung Window Replacement
The windows in your home play a significant role in its overall comfort and style. When you want windows that will be a fashionable asset to your home and also provide you with years of practical use, you may consider installing double hung windows.
Double hung windows consist of two separate sash in a single frame. Both the top and lower sash open and tilt independently, allowing for improved ventilation in your home.
Placement of Double Hung Windows
Because the sash in one of these windows remains flush to the wall they provide the safety that homeowners look for when considering what style of windows to install. They are ideal to install in areas of the house that call for added safety and maximum ventilation. Some key areas in the home in which these windows are most commonly placed include:
- upstairs bedrooms
- enclosed decks or patios
Additionally, because the upper and lower sash open and tilt separately from each other the windows are also easy to clean. You can clean both the inside and outside glass without having to climb a ladder or take the glass out of the frame itself. If your home has more than one story, you will find that double hung windows are more convenient to install and take care of than other styles, such as single hung windows.
