The next type of window to be highlighted in our window series is the double-hung window, one of the most widely-used window styles. If you want time-honored beauty that will increase the value of your home, double-hung windows from Renewal by Andersen® of Northeast PA are an excellent choice.
A double-hung window consists of two sashes that move vertically on a track. This is a great option for ventilation because both the top and bottom sash can be opened. Lower the upper half to allow warm air to be released, or lift the bottom half to catch fresh breezes and increase air flow. A locking mechanism is used to securely latch the upper and lower sashes together. One of the distinct advantages of a Renewal by Andersen double-hung window is that both sashes tilt in, making it a snap to clean both the interior and exterior glass.
Renewal by Andersen double-hung windows have the added benefit of being made of Fibrex®, our exclusive composite frame material. Not only are Fibrex windows long-lasting and durable with strong structure, you’ll never need to go through the tedious task of scraping and repainting exterior window frames because they never need to be painted. Double-hung windows also have a low profile on the exterior of the house, so they work well for openings over decks and patios and beside walkways.
If you’re tired of boring white and tan, Renewal double-hung windows are available in more than just our maintenance-free Fibrex®. We also offer a variety of additional interior finishes, like stainable pine, maple and oak veneers, plus hardware finish options. Interior grilles can also be added to further enhance the elegance of your replacement windows. Mortise-and-tenon joints allow for a clean, attractive look that is a further sign of the quality craftsmanship that Renewal by Andersen of Northeast PA is proud to offer.
