Double-Hung Windows feature movable top and bottom sashes (or panels) that slide open and close vertically. Both sashes maybe open simultaneously to create a natural convection, allowing cool air to flow in through the bottom and hot air to escape out the top. Additionally, both sashes tilt inward for easy cleaning of exterior panes. Similar to the single-hung style, Double-Hung windows also allow for a significant amount of natural light to come into the home and provide a wide opening for maximum ventilation.
A Single-Hung Window is a classic style that features a movable bottom sash (or panel) that slides open vertically, while the top sash stays stationary. The movable bottom sash also tilts inward for easy cleaning of the exterior pane. Single-Hung Windows allow a significant amount of natural light into the home providing a wide opening offering maximum ventilation. This traditional window is found in many homes today.
Horizontal Roller Windows
A Horizontal Roller is a versatile window with sashes positioned side by side with a slight overlap. Tracks are built into the top and bottom of the frame to allow the window to be opened and closed horizontally. Horizontal Rollers offer 2 -and-3-light configurations (where one or two panels may open,) and may feature removable operating panels for easy cleaning. The Horizontal Roller allows for an uninterrupted vertical view and significant airflow.
