Double-hung windows are a classic window style that is one of the most common options for homeowners. Similar to single-hung windows, these windows feature two moveable sashes that can be raised or lowered vertically to allow airflow from above or below. Double-hung windows can work anywhere in your home and will function well in combination with other windows.
Since they are flush with the wall, double-hung windows are a perfect addition to hallways, laundry rooms, or to homes that are low on space. They are easy to open and close, durable, and energy-efficient, which makes them a great addition to any home.
Choose the perfect placement and maximize the efficiency of your new double-hung windows by hiring the professionals at Bavarian Windows. Our team can plan and execute your double-hung window installation.
What is a Double-Hung Window?
A double-hung window is a modern window design that allows you to open the window for ventilation from either the top, bottom, or both. These windows are stylish and are easy to maintain. They are great on their own or as flanking windows for a picture window or bay window.
Benefits of Double-Hung Windows
When exploring different window options for your home, consider the benefits of double-hung windows. These windows have a number of advantages, including:
- Ease of Maintenance You can clean both the interior and exterior of your double-hung windows from your home (even on upper levels). Maintain your windows without struggling to reach the exterior and save on cleaning costs.
- Superior Ventilation Sashes slide up or down to allow for maximum airflow and screens fit well to keep any critters outside.
- Secure Double-hung window locking systems ensure your home is protected from intruders. These locks firmly secure both window sashes in place.

Double-Hung Window Materials
Our custom double-hung windows are available in a range of materials to suit your home, including wood, wood-clad, fibreglass, aluminum, vinyl, and more.
Custom wood and wood-clad double hung windows offer a traditional look loved by many. Wood is a beautiful and durable material, but you want to ensure it is not overly affected by weathering, it does require regular maintenance.
Aluminum is a great option if you’re looking for a more modern and polished look with your windows. Modern double-hung aluminum windows are strong and will stand up to weathering over the years.
Vinyl is another material option for double-hung windows. These windows are a great low-maintenance option and more accessible if you are working with a budget. Both vinyl double-hung window replacements and installations are affordable choices for homeowners.
Single Hung vs Double-Hung Windows
Single and double-hung window styles are very similar in appearance. However, as the name suggests, double-hung windows allow both upper and lower sashes to slide or tilt, while single hung windows offer only the lower panel sash to open.
The major difference between single hung vs double-hung windows to the homeowner is the amount of airflow to the room. Both styles are easy to clean and work well for walkways, patio, and decks.
Bavarian Windows offers both single hung windows and double-hung windows in a range of customizable sizes and styles. Our expert team is always happy to find the best solution for your home.
