Types of Replacement Windows
Single/Double Hung Windows
Single hung and double hung windows are very similar to each other with just one major exception. On double hung windows both sashes in the frame are operable, meaning they both move up and down. The sashes on a double hung window also tilt in for easy cleaning. On single hung windows, however, the top sash is fixed in place and does not move or tilt in, but the bottom one is operable.
Picture windows are fixed windows that do not open. They are usually installed in difficult to reach places, where ventilation is not a concern, in order to let in light or areas of a room that may be susceptible to drafts. They can be used alone, or combined with other windows, to create a portrait-like space on the wall – hence the word “picture” in their name.
