House With Double Hung Windows
A double-hung window is a window made up of two half sections that slide on two separate sets of rails. Double hung windows are one of the most popular styles for homeowners. Since it opens and closes without protruding, double-hung windows are an excellent choice for rooms facing walkways, porches or patios. This style of window is also a popular choice for replacement windows. It is valued primarily for its versatility. Some of the features that modern double-hung windows have include insulation for improved energy efficiency, tilt-in sashes that make cleaning the outside of the window easy, and UV protection. In addition to versatility, double-hung windows are also stylish. They are available in vinyl and wood casements and additional features, such as transoms, can be used with them. Additionally, a double-hung window can be arranged in different ways. Single window units can replace a worn out or dysfunctional window. In groups of three or more, double-hung windows fill larger wall space while maintaining the ventilation and versatility that are lacking in a picture window.
The installation of double-hung windows are fairly quick and simple and can be done by both an experienced do-it-yourselfer or by a professional. A professional window company can typically replace all the windows of an average home in under two days time. While replacement windows of any kind will add value to a property, a double-hung window is almost a guaranteed value because it is both a stylish and functioning window.
