Style is one of the main factors you should consider when getting new windows. Single-hung and double-hung are two of the most popular options today. Both differ in appearance, cost, energy efficiency and ventilation capabilities.
Here are helpful tips to help you decide between these two window styles.
Single-hung windows have one stationary sash and another operable one. They have good insulation capabilities due to the tight seals around their edges and frame. You can get these windows in various sizes, colors and finishes to complement your home. Another great thing about them is that they are easy to maintain due to their fewer moveable parts.
The downside of single-hung windows is that they can’t allow as much fresh air into your living space. They are usually not available in large sizes. It means they can only provide limited outdoor views and natural light.
Double-hung windows are becoming increasingly popular due to their aesthetic appeal. Your window contractor will recommend this style if you have a traditional home. These windows can give living spaces a classic look and work in almost any room.
Both of their sashes are operable, allowing more fresh air indoors. This feature will help keep your home cool during the warmer months. It also gives you better control of how much air enters your space.
At Renewal by Andersen® of Montana, we install double-hung windows made with our unique Fibrex® material. It has the appeal of wood and twice the strength of vinyl. Our windows are guaranteed not to crack, warp and rot. They are also easy to clean from the inside since you can rotate both of their sashes.
