What Is a Single-Hung Window?
When you were shown a picture of a window as a child in a book, it was likely a single-hung window. Single-hung windows have an upper and lower pane of glass. The upper pane is stationary, while the lower one can move up and down.
Double-hung windows allow both sets of windows to move up and down in the frame. Single-hung windows are the simplest of windows that you can open. Just unlock and lift the sash.
They are also one of the cheapest of our window varieties, a third of the price of a double-hung window. Single-hung windows are also simple to install and likely won’t require any frame renovation. Finally, since the top sash is fixed, you’re less likely to leak air through the top, saving money on your energy bill.
Choosing a Window Material for Your Project
Single-hung windows can come in lots of shapes and glazing options, but one of the most important is the material of the frame. This impacts the durability, color, and resale value of your home. Here are four options that we offer at Opal Enterprises for single-hung windows.
Wood is the option for people who want a cozy atmosphere and a high resale value. Our wood windows have an outside layer of aluminum and vinyl for the exterior to increase the lifespan. Plus, all of our wood windows use sustainably sourced lumber. These windows are FSC Certified.
Another immense advantage for wood is that you can color it however you like. You can paint it or stain it to match whatever exterior and interior you have. With the options below, you’re usually stuck with a single color for the lifetime of the window.
If you want wood with more durability, look at our composite window material. It’s designed to resist rot, insects, water damage, corrosion, fungus, and much more. It’s also highly energy efficient and looks elegant. Our composite windows come from Andersen, one of the most trusted names in American windows.
Fiberglass windows can give you the look of wood without the cost. Fiberglass is weather-resistant and UV resistant so the color won’t fade. If wood is out of your price range and you still want that kind of look, look at the fiberglass options.
Vinyl windows are excellent at energy efficiency and can create air-tight seals. It also won’t corrode and it’s easy to clean. A vinyl single-hung window can last 40 years! However, most vinyl windows fade in color over time.
