When searching for the perfect window for your home, there are a lot of things you need to consider. There are so many options out there as far as style, color, and material. We recommend you do your research to determine all of your options. Both Casement and Double hung windows can offer you a much needed upgrade, but which one is going to be right for you?

Double Hung Replacement Windows

Double hung windows – also known as double sash windows – have the ability to move up and down in the frame. A lot of homeowners choose this type of window for their home because the maintenance and ability to operate is very easy. These windows are the most popular type of window, and for good reason.  

Our double hung windows can be the perfect fit to your home. We offer a wide range of styles, colors, and materials to make your dream home a reality.

Casement Windows

Casement windows – also known as crank windows – open outwards, while double hung windows slide up and down. These windows provide a great, firm seal on all four sides to keep the drafts out. There are a lot of benefits to casement windows. If you are interested in replacing with an energy efficient window, casement windows are a perfect choice.

These windows are the perfect option for your sunroom, bathroom, sitting room, or kitchen.  

Let's Compare

Style  

Both windows will give you a major upgrade for curb appeal. Both windows are customizable and will give you the option of wood or vinyl, with a variety of colors to choose from. If your home has more of a traditional look, double hung windows might be a great option for you. However, homeowners with a more contemporary aesthetic might choose casement windows to fit their home.

Maintenance

The good news is that both windows are very low maintenance and easy to clean.

Durability

If you live in a more wet climate, you may want to consider double hung as your option for replacement. Casement windows open outwards, so they are more exposed to the elements and will more than likely degrade faster. Double hung windows are in a frame that makes them a little more secure and durable than casement windows.

Energy Efficiency  

When choosing the right window for your home, we understand that energy efficiency might be a priority. Since casement windows are designed to have an airtight seal on all four sides, this would be a great option to consider. However, that doesn't mean that double hung windows lack in energy efficiency. If you are considering double hung windows, we guarantee that you will have that airtight seal on any window you choose.
