Double-Hung Windows

November 12, 2013

A Double-Hung sash window is the traditional style of window in the United States, with two parts (sashes) that overlap slightly and slide up and down inside the frame. The two parts are not necessarily the same size. Currently most new Double-Hung sash windows use spring balances to support the sashes, but traditionally, counterweights held in boxes on either side of the window were used. These were and are attached to the sashes using pulleys of either braided cord or, later, purpose-made chain. In addition to designing and crafting extraordinary Double-Hung windows, Wooden Window is an expert in tuning, restoring and replacing sash mechanisms.

For generations, the double-hung sash window has been the most popular choice among owners of California homes,  for good reasons: this classic window type is easy on the eyes and the most durable operating system available. Made to order, windows by Wooden Window are crafted to match the existing windows in a building, even those in older homes that may have settled.
