Double hung windows are the most ubiquitous window style in America, but it’s far from a generic window style. As one of the few window contractors who specialize in custom built replacement windows, we know for a fact that you can get more mileage from this particular window style.
One-window ventilation – Effective room ventilation requires two open windows. One functions as the exhaust that pushes stale air out, the other as the intake that pulls fresh air in. But what if the room can only accommodate one window? The answer is double hung windows; you open it in such a way that you have two openings, one at the top, and another at the bottom. This cycles stale air out of the room, providing effective one-window ventilation.
Window security – Double hung windows are relatively easy to secure with the right kind of hardware. Investing in quality window hardware can go a long way towards long-term security and peace of mind. Our standard and Estate™ window hardware are designed to withstand years of continued use, so you can rest easy that your double hung windows will keep your home secure.
Curb appeal – Familiar exterior elements can help boost your home’s curb appeal.
