Home Depot Double-Hung Windows
Once single-hung windows were turned into double-hung windows, the popularity of double-hung windows began to grow among American households. Because double-hung windows have the same traditional look as single-hung, they can be used in virtually any room in the home, from your bathroom to your bedroom to your kitchen or dining room.
Single-Hung vs. Double-Hung
Many homeowners contemplate the differences between single-hung windows and double-hung windows and which would be the better choice. While both offer energy efficiency, double-hung windows give homeowners the opportunity for more ventilation. Because both the top and bottom sashes of the window can open (as opposed to just the bottom), they can allow more airflow into the room. These sashes can be opened by sliding them up and down or by tilting them outward or even more ventilation.
Because you can open just the top part of a double-hung window, you can enjoy an added safety factor when it comes to young children. If you don’t have screens or you have screens that can be easily dislodged, you can open the top part of the window and not worry about kids pushing on the screen and falling through the window.
One drawback of double-hung windows is because of their added versatility, they tend to be more expensive than single-hung windows. However, many homeowners find that they’re worth the cost (especially because they’re very easy to clean).
Double-hung windows can be made in a variety of materials, including wood, fiberglass, vinyl, and more. Let us help you find the best P.J. Fitzpatrick double-hung windows (not Home Depot double-hung windows) for your home.
