What Are Double-hung Windows?

Double-hung windows are some of the most popular types of replacement windows in the United States. Hung windows are also called sash windows. We offer hung windows in multiple styles as they offer convenience, durability, and a traditional aesthetic that is popular in residential and commercial settings.

Double-hung windows have two portions of the window that move either up or down or tilt to open so that both panels can turn at an angle. We install double-hung windows in New Orleans manufactured by companies that adhere to the highest standards of the industry.

With top-quality materials and workmanship, you will have double-hung windows from Big Easy Windows that will give you the aesthetic functionality you need for your property.

How Double Hung Windows Work

A double-hung window has two stacked windows that can both move up and down independently of one another. Often the windows will tilt inward from their frame to make cleaning both sides of the window pane easy.

The top-quality double-hung windows we install work effectively to improve airflow. You will be able to open your window from both the top and bottom to keep the room cool.

With this unique mechanism of the double-hung window, being able to open the top and bottom sash equally, warm air will flow out of the top sash and cool air will flow through the bottom. The result is a healthy exchange of airflow.

Where safe to do so, it is a great way in the evening to move air through a room as cool air flushes out warm air in the room also cooling the walls, floor and ceiling.

So, the dual sash mechanism of the double hung window not only helps to keep you comfortable, it can improve your indoor air quality too. This can be ideal for places such as a bathroom due to its ability to vent out moisture and odors.

What Is The Difference Between Single And Double Hung Windows?

Most windows typically have similar aesthetics, but they vary in how they function. Single hung windows have one half or part of the window entirely fixed in place which cannot be opened or moved. The other portion of the window is operable and either slides up or down or tilts to open.

In operating a double hung window, you unlock the locking mechanism and you can gently pull down the top sash or pull up the bottom one or both. With another click of the lock and you can easily tilt each sash inward to clean or inspect.

Double hung windows have two portions of the window that either move up or down or tilt to open, so both panels can turn at an angle.

How Much Does It Cost To Install A Double-Hung Window in New Orleans?

The average double hung window made with vinyl will cost about $600 to $950 to replace. You can expect to spend  $100 to $300 per window on labor. A typical hourly rate for a double-hung window installer or contractor is about $40 per hour or between $25 and $50 per window. The national average to replace a double-hung window is $490 per window.

Keep in mind that the price may differ depending on the window brand and options you pick, as well as the cost of installation in your area.

How Long Do Double Hung Windows Last

If you want the most popular type of replacement window for your property, you can call us to properly do the work for you. How long they will last will greatly depend on the material of the frame.

Double hung windows made with aluminum and fiberglass can last longer than the wood and vinyl types.  Aluminum and fiberglass double-hung window frames are popular for their strength and weather resistance.

The replacement steps we follow include:

  • Preparing needed tools including a hammer, cordless drill, tape measure, caulk gun, level, pliers, putty knife, and others.
  • Removing the first sash by prying off the molding around the window so that the window can swing outward into the room.
  • Cutting the ropes tied to the bottom sash.
  • Removing the second sash by smacking it on with a well-placed chisel so that the divider strips out and the top sash is removed.
  • Clearing the opening by scraping away any loose paint or wood and removing the pulleys that guide the ropes.

In installing new double hung windows, these steps are followed for a seamless and proper installation:

  • Preparing all the tools needed and wearing the right safety gear for the site to be worked on.
  • Measuring the height, width, and depth of the opening and the double-hung window that will be installed.
  • Making sure that the overall depth of the double-hung window to be installed matches the cladding type it will be installed to.

  • Marking the reveal of both jambs and pre-drilling a hole at each mark.
  • Placing the double-hung window into the opening where it will be installed from the outside.
  • Fixing a nail into the pre-drilled hole at the top of the reveal and on the other side of the double-hung window.
  • Make sure the double-hung window is square and plumb.
  • Using a pinch bar to gently move the window into the correct position.
  • Check how the double-hung window operates by sliding open the sash and closing again to ensure it is functioning properly.
