Home Depot Single-Hung Windows vs. PJ Fitzpatrick

Home Depot Single-Hung Windows

If you’re looking for the most popular window style among homeowners, you’ve found it in single-hung windows from P.J. Fitzpatrick. These windows give any room a modern, yet traditional look and offer just the right amount of ventilation. Single-hung windows are usually rectangular in shape and are split into two window sashes – the top sash is secured and the bottom sash can be opened and closed vertically. Sometimes, the bottom sash tilts outward instead of moving up and down.

Single-Hung vs. Double-Hung

Home Depot Single-Hung Windows

When it comes to “hung” windows, many homeowners don’t know whether to choose single-hung or double-hung. Double-hung windows differ from single-hung windows in that their top sashes and bottom sashes can slide past each other so you can open either part of the window.

When it comes to price, single-hung are usually cheaper than double-hung (by around 10%-20%) and they also tend to be more energy efficient: Since the top half of the window is secure, there are fewer areas for your heat or air conditioning to leak out.

Some manufacturers argue that single-hung windows are a better choice when it comes to security. Because these windows only open on the bottom, they offer fewer points of failure and only allow a small area for burglars or criminals to access.

Where to Use

Because of their classic look, single-hung windows can be used in any room, however, they’re most commonly found in bathrooms, kitchens, and bedrooms. These windows are a great choice for rooms with high traffic or rooms that are small because they open vertically to save space. When it comes to design, single-hung windows can be paired with half-circle or arched windows to create an entirely new look.

If these windows sound perfect for your home, pass on Home Depot’s single-hung windows and talk to the experts at P.J. Fitzpatrick. We guarantee your window installation will be fast and professional – and the best part is, you won’t have to worry about problems in the future.
