What Is a Double Hung Window?
Double hung windows are composed of two movable sashes, slightly offset from one another to operate (open and close) vertically within a window frame. The upper sash can be lowered and the bottom sash can be raised to create ventilation and frame a lovely outdoor view. Double hung window sashes also tilt, so you can easily reach the outside surface for cleaning as needed.
To make your double hung windows unique, choose a window grid (also called a grille) to add character to your windows, such as New England or Prairie style. Your selection of hardware and finish completes the design of your replacement double hung windows.
Our double hung windows come in a variety of sizes, materials, colors, and options. At Zen Windows St. Louis, we offer three different lines of replacement windows, each one offering different points of cost and features.
- Karma: Our base-level double pane window, the Karma offers energy-efficient glass options with fusion-welded sashes and frames.
- Nirvana: The Nirvana is a step above the Karma. It offers everything the base model does but includes additional features like foam-filled frames and a heavy-duty vent lock for maximum efficiency.
- Lotus: This triple pane window comes with Ultra S and Solar Ultra S Glass options and is reinforced with fiberglass to ensure maximum security. The Lotus is not only our highest-quality window, but it’s also our bestselling model as well.
Our double hung windows offer half- and full-screen options. For a similar appearance, consider single hung windows, which look quite similar, but they only open from the bottom. Double hung windows are generally more expensive than single hung, but call our office at (314) 399-0856 or request a quote now to quickly find out for yourself.
