Single & Double Hung Windows
Transform your home with single and double-hung windows
In Burlington, Oakville, Milton, Hamilton and surrounding areas, single-hung windows and double-hung windows are the most common type of window you’ll find in homes.
Why are they so common?:
- Traditional, classic, and timeless appearance
- Ease of operation, just by sliding the window up and down
These windows are incredibly versatile. They can easily be installed with most home styles, such as:
- Back split
Compatible with air conditioners and screens
The sliding up-and-down mechanism of double-hung windows allows them to safely contain air conditioners and window screens (unlike windows which open via a crank).
Very easy to clean
Modern single- and double-hung windows feature “tilt-out” upper and lower sashes.
(The sash is the part of the window responsible for keeping the glass in place).
This allows for quick and convenient cleaning. Instead of having to access a hard-to-reach area, all you need to do is tilt the window towards you and clean as needed.
As for single-hung windows, all that’s required to clean them is to remove the screen (which you should also clean on a regular basis), clean the glass, and replace the screen.
A new window creates a nice, tight seal against the window pane when closed. That reduces lost warm or cool air (depending on the season) and also lowers your energy bills.
Additionally, single-hung windows and double-hung windows are manufactured using the latest in eco-friendly glass products:
- Double and triple glazing to lower heat loss
- LoE glass coating to keep more warm air inside in winter and outside in summer
- Argon glass to reduce unwanted energy transmission
