Single Hung Windows


Single hung windows are a popular choice in residential households, due to their versatility, ease of operation, and simple yet classic design. The lower sash on these windows will slide up or down and allow airflow to enter your home. Allowing you to see the outside through a clear unobstructed glass.

On single hung windows, the top sash is hung and fixed in place, which causes the window to not move or tilt inwards. The bottom however, is fully operable. As a result of half the window being fixed in place, only half of the window can let air into your home. However, this can be a positive characteristic, as they are more energy efficient than their double hung counterparts.

  • Handcrafted design, colonial framing inside and out
  • Top sash is fixed in place, while the bottom remains fully operable
  • Bottom sash tilts inward for easy maintenance, cleaning and maximum airflow
  • Adjustable balance system ensures stability of sash when operated

With a sleek profile and contemporary style, the bottom sash of single hung windows will tilt inwards for cleaning purposes. This type of window does not protrude outward, making it a popular choice for walkways, patios, sunrooms, or porches.
