Superior Double-Hung Windows from Renewal by Andersen
Most homes today have single- or double-hung windows. This classic style of windows is two window panels separated by a sash that slides up and down to open or close. Unlike some brands of windows, our double-hung windows open from the top down or bottom up, which increases ventilation. In homes with small children, the option to open a window by lowering only the upper sash increases safety.
When you choose our SmartSun™ glass, you’ll have a brighter room and clearer view. Our SmartSun™ glass has an innovative coating activated by sunlight to reduce water spots by 99%. It also makes window cleaning easer.
Like our other windows, our double-hung windows frames and sash are made with Fibrex®, giving you the strength and insulative value of wood with the low-maintenance benefit of vinyl windows. Our High Performance™ Low-E4® glass packages are significantly more energy-efficient than standard dual-pane glass made by other manufacturers. Greater energy efficiency leads to reduced utility bills all year, so you see a greater return on your investment
Many Options, One Superior Window
The double-hung window is the most popular window style homeowners choose. Not only is it a timeless look, it’s what most homeowners already have in their homes. When you choose our double-hung windows, your custom window has many options.
- Sash Options – We offer three sash options. The most popular is the Equal Sash where the upper and lower sashes are the same size. The second option is the Cottage-style where the lower sash is larger than the upper sash. Finally, we have the Oriel where the upper sash is larger than the lower one.
- Interior Colors – Choose from five standard interior colors or one of our stainable woods for a custom finish inside your home.
- Exterior Colors –There are nine exterior colors so you can perfectly coordinate with your home.
- Hardware – You can choose from 11 different finishes to match your door handles and other fixtures.
