What is a double hung window?

What does double hung window mean? Simply put the window opens and closed up and down instead of left to right like a glider window. Double hung windows have two vertically sliding sashes, meaning both the top and bottom can open up and down.

This style is probably the most classic design of all windows, and it's easy to use. The tilt wash feature where you can clean the outside of the window from inside your home is particularly popular. For spaces that require emergency access, we have double hung egress window. You can choose from standard double hung window sizes, custom window sizes or even twin double hung windows to fit the needs of the required space.

Casement Windows VS Double Hung?

When it comes to taller window openings, the two styles of operable windows to choose from are Double Hung Windows and Casement Windows. In this article, we'll review the two styles and show you how they compare against each other in a few different categories.

Casement windows open outward like a door on the hinges on the side of the window, using a cranking mechanism. They also allow you to clean the outside of the window from inside when you crank them open fully. The downside to this style is the risk of bending the hinges slightly out of shape because of strong breezes or the weight of very large window sashes. Conclusion: Double hung windows probably have more advantages in this category because they don't require space outside the window to open and close, and there's generally a lower risk of operation mechanism damage.

Single and Double Hung Windows differences

The main difference between a single hung vs double hung window is how the two operate. A single hung window has a fixed top sash and an operable bottom sash that moves vertically. In a double hung window, both the top and bottom sashes are operable.
