Single hung windows are traditional in appearance and operation. They slide open vertically, meaning they use no interior space, making these windows an excellent choice for small rooms, areas with high traffic, or areas where you simply do not want a window to stick out.
On a single hung window, only the bottom sash is moveable with a fixed top sash. Single hung windows are one of the most commonly installed windows in America due to their versatility. They are often used in bedrooms, bathrooms, offices, and more, and can easily be combined with eyebrow, special shape or arch windows to create an attractive architectural style to your home or business (as seen in the picture above).
Our single hung windows come in all wood and aluminum clad wood options with a variety of styling and finishing options giving you thousands of design combinations. Explore our product selections below orcontact us for more information.
Benefits of Single Hung Windows
There are several benefits provided by single hung windows that are beneficial to home and business owners alike. Some of the most notable benefits are:
- Security – single hung windows open in only one direction, so there are fewer points of failure on the window’s locking system.
- Energy efficiency – single hung windows have only a single movable sash, so there is less opportunity for air infiltration as the window ages.
- Space saving – single hung windows open vertically instead of outward, making them ideal for high traffic areas and tight spaces.
In addition to these benefits, our single hung windows come with advantages that are found in all of our window products—they have high efficiency glass, premium materials and are manufactured in the U.S.
