Lowes Single-Hung Windows vs. PJ Fitzpatrick

Lowes Single-Hung Windows

Single-hung windows are the best-selling style of window among homeowners. They not only offer an attractive, traditional look, but also give you just the right amount of ventilation. These windows are generally rectangular in shape and are separated into two window sashes. The top sash is secured, but the bottom sash can be slid up and down to open and close the window. Sometimes, the bottom sash will tilt outward instead of move vertically.

Single-Hung vs. Double-Hung

lowes-single-hungMany homeowners have a tough time choosing between single-hung and double-hung windows. Double-hung windows are also split into two sashes, but these sashes can both move past each other, which means you can open either the top or the bottom of the window.

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

If you’re looking for security when it comes to windows, single-hung can be considered a better choice over double-hung. Because single-hung windows only open on the bottom, they only offer a small area for burglars or criminals to access and they offer fewer points of failure.

Best Uses

Single-hung windows look great in any room, but they’re most commonly used in kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms. They’re a perfect choice for small rooms or rooms with high traffic, since they open vertically to save space, and when it comes to design, they can be paired with arched or half-circle windows to create an even bolder look.
