When it comes to residential windows, the double-hung windows are one of the most popular choices among homeowners because of their classic, timeless look. In this video, Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City talks about the key features and benefits of this window style.
A popular window style choice in the East and the Midwest, the traditional double-hung windows from Renewal by Andersen are those in which the top and bottom sashes can be moved up and down on a track. This allows for great ventilation; just open either sash to let air flow into the home. When closed, the locking mechanism locks the lower sash to the upper sash, ensuring an airtight seal.
Double-hung windows can be installed on their own or combined with other window styles to create a larger configuration, like a bay window. Also, the mortise and tenon joints of their window framing give them their clean-looking appearance. Indeed, they are constructed with no unsightly corner welds.
Because they are flushed to the openings upon installation, they do not protrude or hang outside the home or any space. This makes them well-suited for rooms facing decks, patios or walkways. Moreover, double-hung windows are an excellent choice for restoration and renovation projects that prioritize historical accuracy.
Benefits of Double-Hung Windows
Investing in this window style for a replacement project has its benefits. For one, the window has a tilt-and-wash mechanism that requires no use of a ladder when cleaning. The sashes can be tilted toward the inside, allowing for easy wiping on both the interior and exterior.
Another notable benefit is that it is customizable. With a wide array of colors, grille patterns and hardware finishes to choose from, a double-hung window can help any homeowner maximize the beauty of the home.
