An elegant approach to bring the outdoors into your home
Double-hung windows offer flexibility in ventilation and comfort from inside the home. Done right – with the right specialists and the best materials – double-hung windows can bring distinction and functionality to a home like no other type of window.
Built with two window panels that either slide open or swing out, double-hung windows are becoming an increasingly popular way to allow for more ventilation in a room and fuse functionality with beauty.
This functionality makes double-hung windows almost a requirement for those who enjoy the smell of fresh-cut grass while also giving you a greater amount of natural control over the temperature of a room.
