Single-hung windows

This type of window has a single stationary sash and another sash that can be moved up and down. Typically, it can also be tilted into the room to provide easy cleaning and maintenance.

Single-hung windows also feature a screen that covers half of the window. Single-hung windows are perfect for modern homes because they cost less than double-hung windows. They are also less susceptible to leakage or air infiltration because the upper sash is fixed and will not develop looseness the way a moving sash will.

  • Security
    Security is one of the advantages of single-hung windows. Since this type of window opens only in one direction, there are fewer points of failure on its locking system.

  • Energy-efficiency
    Single-hung windows are also energy-efficient because they only have one movable sash. This provides less opportunity for air infiltration, even when the window ages. The less air that infiltrates your window, the less you waste on heating and cooling costs year round.

Hung Window Detail

Double-hung windows

Double-hung windows are one of the most common types of residential windows. They are traditional in terms of appearance and they can be easily operated by sliding up and down.

  • Versatility
    Double-hung windows are compatible with most home styles, and they also come in many shapes, sizes and stock colors.
  • Air-conditioner friendly
    Double-hung windows are also screen and air-conditioner-friendly. Since double-hung windows slide up and down instead of sliding to the side or cranking out, they can hold window AC units easily. Screens can be added and removed as necessary.
  • Easy to clean
    Most double-hung window sashes tilt in for easy cleaning.

What Our Clients Say

Don’t take our word for it.

“Had my windows and a patio door installed a few weeks ago. Top notch job done by the friendly crew and the clean up was perfect. They answered all my questions and weren’t annoyed by my asking. In fact they seemed to enjoy sharing their knowledge and information with me. They even wanted to keep taking their boots off and that was not expected – very respectful. Highly recommend VDK Windows and Doors. Everything was bang on. Great job and great windows!”


Mark Cheron, Home Owner
“I found this organization purely through a google search. They were not far away so thought I would give them a try with a quote and gather more information. Their pricing, service and installation was far beyond my expectations. Until completed, i continued wondering what the catch was. Not saying they are the cheapest if you want to compare to big box but the quality of the product is at a whole other level. Highly recommend VDK!”
