What Is a Single Hung Window?

Single hung windows are the most prevalent window style used for U.S. homes. The term hung in this case refers to the window being suspended within a frame. Single-hung means that only one of the sashes is operable while the other is fixed. Generally, the lower sash is operable and the upper sash fixed, but it is possible to orient them the other way as well.

Benefits of Single Hung Window Installation

The main benefit of a single hung window is that it looks just like a double hung window but is more affordable, as it has less complexity to it. Single hung windows also allow in just as much sunlight and ventilation as their double hung counterparts. If you’re replacing all the windows on the ground floor, for instance, choosing single-hung can save you a considerable amount of money.

Durable Replacement Window Materials

You have material options when it comes to single hung window replacement. Those include wood, vinyl, and storm windows, and there are pros and cons to each.

Energy Efficient Windows for Any Home

There are a wide range of window styles for you to choose from, and we’ll help you select the ideal windows for your home and how you would like them to perform. A single hung window is just one option. Others include casement, double hung, bay, garden, and awning windows.

Double-Hung Windows

Double Hung Windows

A double hung window looks like a single hung window but has two operable sashes that move independently. This approach adds cost but makes for easier cleaning and allows for additional ventilation configurations.

Casement Windows

Casement Windows

A casement window is a hinged window that opens out like a door to either the left or right depending on where the hinge is located. These are also called crank windows as a crank is used for opening and closing.

Bay Windows

Bay Windows

A bay window extends from the house and is typically made up of three independent windows, such as a picture and a pair of casements. Bay windows add curb appeal and also expand the interior space.

Garden Window

Garden Windows

Garden windows extend from the home as well but typically have four sides, including a top side. This design allows a lot of natural sunlight into the area and is a perfect spot for houseplants.

Awning Windows

Awning Windows

Awning windows are like casement windows except that they open out vertically as opposed to horizontally. An advantage of this approach is being able to keep the rain out during inclement weather.

Single-Hung Windows

Other Window Types
