The most beneficial reason to buy single hung windows is the cost and added energy efficiency. Single hung windows are less expensive than double hung windows and because the single hung has a fixed top sash, it is often more energy efficient than a double hung window. Visually, the window design hides the locks for a streamlined exterior. Compare double hung windows to single hungs and casements in more detail here.
How much do replacement single hung windows cost?
The cost of your new single hung windows depends completely on you, your style preferences and your home. Find industry averages for window replacement costs here, but for an official cost estimate you will need to contact a Simonton pro who will visit your home in order to make an official estimate. You can also create a My House account on our website and add window choices to your house before you even meet with a pro. This expedites the pro’s ability to provide you with a window replacement estimate. Create a My House account here.
What home style is best suited for single hung windows?
Like double hung windows, the single hung window is suited for almost any traditional American home including: cape cods, colonials, victorians, craftsman homes, ranch homes, cottages, farmhouses, or tudors. Depending on the style of your home, consider a grid pattern for your single hung windows, which would give them an added custom touch and the opportunity to completely transform your home’s curb appeal. For examples, browse our photo gallery and search single hung under window style.
If you’re interested in the single hung window, you may enjoy a double hung. A double hung window looks like a single hung but both sash slide and tilt in, which allows for easy cleaning from inside your home.
