Whether you’ve decided to build a brand-new home or want to remodel your current one, don’t forget about the windows. Most people, when remodelling, neglect the windows because they don’t know how much they can change a home. Likewise, they can provide better performance (opening and closing), beauty, and save energy. Double-hung windows are an excellent option if you want to have two sashes, both of which can be opened during spring and summer.
How They Add Appeal
Double-hung windows are classic. They look exceptional with any décor (both inside and outside) and can be found in a variety of colours and materials. Likewise, you can choose various trims, decorative options, and performance packages to help save on energy and keep your house looking beautiful.
While it’s not necessary to the appeal of the home, these window options are easy to clean and maintain, which is perfect for the busy household.
Benefits of Double-Hung Windows
If you choose to use vinyl for the sash and frame, you won’t have warping, cracking, peeling or chipping of the frame. However, wood and aluminium are also available. Therefore, they work well for any price range and budget.
Because the sashes tilt inward, you can clean them quickly and provide more ventilation.
They tend to use weather-stripping and compression seals, which can help to reduce the dust and allergens found in the home, and can reduce the noise levels outside and eliminate drafts of hot or cold air.
You can also find a variety of reinforcements, such as locks, keepers, rails and night latches. Night latches allow you to leave the window open while keeping the window secure and keeping pets and children inside.
Likewise, they are designed for longevity, which means you won’t have to replace them for up to 15 years, depending on your home, lifestyle, and needs.
