Double Hung Windows
Our Chesapeake VA Double Hung Windows are by far the most popular window style, especially in areas that experience cold and snowy winters. They provide ample ventilation and plenty of insulation, too. A double hung window is made of two pieces that slide vertically inside the window frame. They can be opened from the top and the bottom. You can also install screens in these windows for use during the spring and summer.
Double-Hung windows are one of the most popular styles for homeowners. The window can be operated from the bottom or top sash, sliding up and down for ventilation. Since it opens and closes without protruding, double-hung windows are an excellent choice for rooms facing walkways, porches or patios. Milgard double-hung tilt windows have sashes that tilt inward to enable easy cleaning of the exterior glass.
Most windows today are at least double paned, but you can choose between double or triple paned double hung windows. The difference between the two is all about the number of layers of glass used on the windows. The double paned windows have two layers and the triple paned have three. Triple paned windows are more energy efficient, but they will cost you more to purchase initially.
Double hung windows are available with tempered and insulated Low E glass. Tempered glass is more durable and will stand up to impacts more effectively than standard glass does. Insulated and Low E glass helps to keep heat in more effectively than standard glass does. This insulated glass has argon gas trapped between the layers and the gas reflects heat back into the room to help keep it from being lost.
