If you’re in the market for new or replacement windows, you have many styles to choose from. Two popular options are horizontal slider windows and single or double hung windows. If you’re not sure which of these two styles is best for you, consider the features and benefits of each to help you decide.
Also simply called sliding windows, this option opens horizontally along a track in the window frame. These windows tend to be twice the size of single or double hung windows, and may or may not feature muntins to divide the panes. In modern windows, muntins are set between two panes of glass to give the appearance of a divided pane without sacrificing efficiency.
Both single and double hung windows operate by sliding vertically. Single hung windows have a fixed upper sash and operable lower sash. Double hung windows feature two operable sashes for greater versatility. Some double hung windows have a full screen while others require you to adjust the position of a half-screen depending on how you open the window.
Both of these window styles have benefits you’re sure to enjoy in your home.
