Double hung windows are versatile window options that feature two sashes—enabling the window to be opened from either the bottom up or the top down. This type of window gives homes owners a variety of ventilation options.
At CMC, proudly offering Marvin Windows and Doors we offer some of the most innovative and quality double hung window designed, custom manufactured by Marvin to fit your project needs. Marvin is a top manufacturer pick by architects because of the unmatched quality and superior craftsmanship evident in every product that they create.
Some of the top advantages of double hung windows include:
Because these windows can either be opened from the bottom up, or top down, you can maximize airflow in your home by choosing the ventilation method that you prefer. You can even open both sashes at the same time in order to allow hot air to escape from one opening and cool air to enter from the other.
Double hung windows are optimized for easy cleaning, as the bottom section of the window can often be tilted open by unlocking it at the top and pulling it down towards the inside of the home. This allows you to rest the glass on your knee or on a table or chair while you easily clean the outside of the window. This feature is exceptionally convenient for apartments and multi-story homes because it eliminates the need for tall ladders in order to clean the outside of your windows.
Double Hung windows can be extremely elegant and improve the overall aesthetic of your property. Marvin offers a variety of double hung windows to meet a variety of design criteria, so whether you are hoping to achieve a modern look or replicate historic and traditional elegance, this type of window design can provide style, authenticity, and a lot of natural light.
