Single-hung vinyl windows are a type of sliding window that slides open vertically with one sash only. Great for tight spaces, the top sash is fixed and the bottom sash moves upwards to open and downwards to close.
These are among the most affordable vinyl windows available, yet still feature many of the energy saving and custom design advantages available in more expensive styles. When installed by Larmco certified contractors, you will have the added value and peace of mind that your new single-hung windows have the lifetime limited warranty which comes with all Larmco windows.
Benefits and Advantages of Single-Hung Vinyl Windows
- Energy Efficiency – These tend to be more efficient than double hung windows due to the fact that they contain fewer moving parts. The seaming on these windows also helps prevent leaking cool or hot air.
- Versatility – Single-hung windows work well with other window styles if a small number of replacement windows are needed. They are also a great option for homes that have limited space and cannot accommodate windows that open outwards.
- Affordablity – Single-hung tend to be one of the most affordable types of windows. When you request an estimate, a Larmco representative can help you compare window types and features to see which options would prove to be most cost effective.
Tips for Choosing Single-Hung Windows
- Cleaning – More modern single-hung windows feature a tilting sash which allows you to easily clean the window. When tilting it for cleaning, be careful to provide adequate support as the sash may be very heavy depending on the size of your window
- Placement – Single-hung vinyl windows can be installed anywhere but are often recommended in hallways, rooms, and porches or patios where space is limited.
- Installation – While this type of window is one of the easiest to install, to protect your purchase, we recommend that you opt for professional installation of your windows. This prevents your warranty from being voided and ensures that your windows are properly installed.
- Aesthetics – Single-hung windows from Larmco are available in classic white as well as other colors which you can use to match your home.
If you have a tight space or a tight budget, single-hung vinyl windows are a fantastic option for replacement windows. For more information and to begin the design process with Larmco, request an estimate by calling us or completing the form on this page today.
