What Are Double-Hung Windows?

A double-hung window is often made with its lower sash in front of its upper sash. The sashes can either be divided into separate lites through built-in muntins to create an illusion of separate lites or may be made with a solid pane of glass. For other models, a snap-in removable grid is used to produce an illusion of separate lites. These types of double-hung windows serve more decorative purposes than their contemporaries.

These windows are made with two grooves on their side jambs so that each of the sashes can slide separately from each other. Other varieties of this window come with a full window screen to enable them to provide full ventilation from the top or bottom, while some are designed with a half screen that needs to be placed in position.

Double- vs. Single-Hung Windows

For double-hung windows, both sashes in the window frame can move up and down. For single-hung windows, the top sash is fixed in place, but the bottom sash is operable.

Are Double-Hung Windows More Expensive Than Single Hung? 

Double-hung windows will be more expensive than single-hung in initial costs. This price pays off, though, because double-hung windows are easier to clean and provide better ventilation since both the top and bottom sash can be opened.
