Pretty and Practical

Single hung and double hung windows are perhaps the most common window style in the market. They come with a handful of excellent benefits, chief of which being their versatility and their easy upkeep. Single hung windows have a top sash that is fixed in place and a bottom sash that tilts in and can be opened vertically. On the other hand, double hung windows have two sashes attached to the frame. Both tilt in and can be moved up or down.

Single & Double Hung Windows: Main Advantages


Most contemporary double hung windows are developed primarily for ease of cleaning. Since both sashes tilt in, you can easily clean the outside of the window from the inside, effectively eliminating the hassle—and danger—of climbing ladders or using complex tools.


Compared to most modern windows, older windows were not designed with energy efficiency in mind, thus rendering them inherently inefficient. If your windows are more than 10 years old, you should consider replacing them with newer, more energy-efficient single or double hung windows. Doing so will help reduce energy loss and improve your home’s overall comfort.


Both single and double hung windows are perfect choices for homeowners looking to install window-type AC units. Since the sashes move up and down, an air conditioner can easily and securely be placed in the window.


Because the window sashes on double hung models move up and down, a window screen is necessary. In fact, Custom Exteriors double hung and single hung windows always come with their own screen. This design allows you to open the windows and let a breeze in without worrying about bugs or debris.


Single and double hung windows are one of the most versatile window styles on the market. They are available in a wide variety of sizes, styles, colors, and materials, making them an excellent choice for any home or business.

"Loved working with Custom Exteriors. Very responsive to inquiries. Precise in their measurements, estimate and timeframe for completion. Highly recommend them."

Brian I.

"Custom Exteriors provided a great product and good service in replacing 2 sliding glass doors and 2 other windows in my townhouse.  One was a custom window that required extra work in refitting the plantation shutters to the new window.  Although there were some bumps along the way, Jeff and his foreman Ryan excelled at follow up.  I would recommend Custom Exteriors."
