As the most popular window style on the market today, double-hung windows are a choice that is sure to be enjoyed anyone who visits your home. Advanced engineering makes these windows easy to open and close, so they are a good option for people of all physical abilities.
They come in two main variations, opening horizontally and vertically, and allow the homeowner to open both sections of the window, sliding on tracks in either direction. Larmco’s Ohio-made double-hung windows are one of the most affordable types of vinyl window, and they come in a variety of sizes so you can find them for any room in your house.
Benefits and Advantages of Vinyl Double-Hung Windows
- Safety – Vertical double-hung windows are ideal for homeowners with small children or pets as you can open only the top portion of the window, out of reach for pets and children.
- Stylish – Double-hung windows can fit the style or era of any home. These windows come in various shapes, sizes, and colors, customizable for any room throughout the house.
- Versatility – They can be easily used along with screens and air conditioners because they don’t hinder placement of these because of how they open. They slide up and down or right and left and do not protrude out or in so they can be used with AC units and insect and bug screens.
- Convenience – Newer designs of double-hung windows have sashes that tilt out making it easy to wipe them clean. There are also models available with completely removable sashes, which means you could even wash them under running water.
Tips for Choosing Double-Hung Windows

- Aesthetics – In addition to customizing window frames, one way you can increase the visual appeal of these windows is to choose those that have patterned glass. You can find glass with patterns that range from very simple to those with intricate details.
- Installation – Though you may be tempted to do installation yourself to save on money this is never recommended. You can get the best use out of your windows if they are professionally installed.
