Single hung windows are the perfect choice for homeowners looking to renovate their homes with classic practicality.
Commonly known as “single sash windows” or “single hung sash windows”, these affordable window options are comprised of two glass sashes where only the bottom sash is operable, and the top sash is stationary.
With stable materials and reliable weather sealing, single hung windows are compatible with almost every style of home decor.
Since these windows open vertically and not outwards, single hung windows are an excellent choice for rooms that open into walkways, porches or outdoor living areas.
For single hung windows, the bottom window sash is operable for ventilation while the top sash is fixed.
For double hung windows, both the top and bottom window sashes are operable for air ventilation (although they can only be used or cleaned one at a time).
