DOUBLE-HUNG WINDOWS

Double-hung windows have two operating sash that move up and down allowing for ventilation on the top, bottom or both. Single-hung windows have only a lower operating sash for ventilation.

DOUBLE-HUNG REPLACEMENT WINDOWS

As one of the most common replacement window types, our double-hung windows are designed with replacement in mind. Our system at Great Plains Windows and Doors allows us to re-create original looks or provide an updated look to an existing window opening. Andersen double-hung replacement windows have two sashes in a single frame, which slide up or down to provide ventilation. Because their sashes remain flush to the wall while the window is open, they are a good choice for placement adjacent to patios, decks and walkways. Our double-hung windows feature thick, sloped sills, precision-milled wood interiors and historically accurate grille patterns, which bring authentic old-world character to homes of all ages in the Twin Cities area.
