Double hung windows offer Savannah, Beaufort, and Hilton Head Island homeowners a timeless look, A+ energy performance, and rugged durability. So it’s no surprise that they are the most popular style of window in the country.
Some homeowners have trouble deciding between single hung windows and double hung windows. They look similar to one another, but make no mistake—double hung windows have the edge in every conceivable category. The numerous added benefits you get from double hung windows—better efficiency, low maintenance, superior performance—makes them more than worth the additional 10-20% up-front investment.
Double hung windows can open from both the bottom AND top. This differs from single hung windows, which open only from the bottom. Opening from the top not only provides extra ventilation, but makes your home safer if you have small children because they won’t be able to reach the opening.
Double windows can tilt to the inside of your home to make it easy to clean the exterior of the window from indoors.
The extra ventilation of double hung windows makes them ideal for high-humidity areas like bathrooms.
Unlike a single hung window, the top sash of a double hung window is not fixed. This means it’s MUCH easier to repair or replace the top sash if the glass breaks.
Since double hungs are the most in-demand windows, manufacturers pour more resources into making them. Double hung windows are made with the latest technology and materials for peak performance, looks, and energy efficiency.
Bottom line: Double hung windows are popular for a reason—they look great, perform exceptionally, and provide tremendous value.
