5 Things You’ll Love About Double Hung Windows

Double-hung windows are among the most popular windows sold to homeowners on Long Island and in the United States. These attractive, traditional, easy to use windows have the look of a single hung window, with a second movable sash that provides for additional ventilation.

There are many reasons to love Renewal by Andersen of Long Island’s double hung windows. If you’re looking for an easy to clean, durable, long-lasting window with classic style, these double hung windows may be the perfect choice.

#1. Double Hung Windows That Tilt Inward for Easy Cleaning

Unlike single hung models, double hung windows have two movable sashes that tilt inward for easy cleaning from inside the home. While first-floor windows might be easy to clean from inside or outside, second-floor windows without tilt-in sashes can be a challenge and safety issue to clean if you have to get up on a ladder. Installing Renewal by Andersen double hung windows in your home ensures that you’ll be able to clean your windows from inside your house without all the hassle of going outside.

#2. Double Hung Windows with a Fibrex Composite Frame

Fibrex is Renewal by Andersen’s durable composite wood product, made from resins and wood pulp. Fibrex is long-lasting, never needs to be stained, painted or refinished, and is not vulnerable to damage from moisture the way that most wood products are. All Renewal by Andersen windows are made with frames made from Fibrex material to ensure that our windows will last for decades without a lot of extra maintenance required.

#3. Double Hung Windows with Highly Efficient Glass

Renewal by Andersen double hung windows are made from dual panes of low-E4 glass. This means they’re well insulated and help protect your home from extreme infrared light that can warm your home and put a burden on your HVAC system.
