Single/Double Hung(Vertical) Window Installation Services

Hung (Vertical)

Besides allowing you to see outside, windows let in natural light and air. With enough natural light and airflow, you can heat and cool any room easily without excess lamps, heaters or air conditioning units. Landmark Home Solutions is able to customize any window style and our products are energy efficient. If you’re unsure as to which window option is right for your home, we recommend single or double hung units.

What are single hung windows?

Single hung windows are commonly found in older homes, offices and apartment buildings.

Single hung window units contain a bottom sash that moves vertically and an upper sash that is immovable. When it comes to ventilation, single hung windows provide enough airflow to cool the room they’re placed in, and as an added bonus, ours are energy efficient.

What are double hung windows?

Double hung windows operate on two vertical sliding sashes. Both sashes move to create maximum ventilation and this type of window is easy to clean. Double hung windows can be tilted to bring in more air and like any of our products, they are energy efficient. Generally, homeowners place double hung windows in rooms that face backyards or gardens because they are easily secured and keep bugs out with their full exterior screen.

What is the difference between the two styles of vertically hung windows?

The difference between a double and single hung window lies with the sashes. Sashes are the panels that form the window pane. Single hung windows feature two sashes but only one moves while the other is fixed.

In double hung windows, both sashes are movable. Since we can easily customize each style of window, the one you choose for your home will depend on your tastes and the size of the space you wish to install the units in. For larger spaces like living rooms and bedrooms, double hung windows are generally recommended. However, that doesn’t mean that choosing single hung windows for big rooms is a bad idea.

Because our products are energy efficient and each window style allows for ample airflow, single hung units work in larger rooms, too. Each style will keep hot air out in the summer and cold air out in the winter. Furthermore, our single and double hung options lock in heat during the colder months so you don’t waste energy and increase your heating bills.

Landmark Home Solutions offers single and double hung window options that are stylish and functional. For more information about window installation and customization, contact us. Let us give you gorgeous new single or double hung windows that look as great as they work.

What are Single Hung Windows?

Single hung windows are considered the leading choice for new home construction, office spaces, and apartments. They’re constructed from at least two panes of glass layered together to form an insulating barrier to the home. They feature a bottom sash that moves vertically, while the upper sash remains in a stationary position. When opened, the bottom sash obstructs the upper sash. The leading advantage of the product is that it is more cost-effective than double-hung windows. It’s the reason single hung products are often chosen when homeowners require a series of windows for their home spaces. Single hung windows also provide energy savings to the homeowner when replacing older window systems.

Double Hung Windows

Double hung windows feature two vertical sliding sashes, which provide strong air flow within the living space. Many homeowners prefer double hung windows for garden-facing rooms as these systems feature a full screen on the exterior to keep insects out of the home.

Double hung windows are simple to clean because both windows can be tilted, offering access to inside and outside window surfaces. Additionally, many people prefer double hung windows for the additional security they can bring to the property, as this style allows for two locks to be placed on the system, securing the area against intrusion by outside threats.
