Double Hung Window

Definition

A type of window with two sash, so that you can open the window at either the top or the bottom by sliding the correct sash in the opposite direction. For example, you would move one sash up to open the bottom of the window, or move the other sash down to open the top of the window.

Things you need to know

Newer models have latches that release the window, making it possible to clean both sides from the interior of the home. Double hung windows do partially obstruct the view.

Cost Considerations

Double-hung windows are available in a wide range of prices, ranging from $50 to $540 per window.

Costs vary greatly by region (and even by zip code). To get free estimates from local contractors, please indicate yours.
