Dayton Double-Hung Windows

Double Sash Windows are Timeless and Traditional

The history of Dayton can be found in the architecture of its homes — from the oldest Victorian-era Queen Anne homes of the Oregon District to the contemporary Craftsman homes in Five Oaks. Every neighborhood is rich with architectural interest and distinct style.

Double-hung windows have been the most popular window for years and can be found in all parts of the city. The separated look of a horizontal sash adds character and opens up design options to decorate the glass within each sash in different ways and fit a wide variety of architectural styles.

Commonly known as: sash windows, hung sash windows

Popular Local Trends & Styles

Craftsman-Style Windows

Some of Dayton’s favorite historic neighborhoods have a plethora of Craftsman-style homes. The Grafton-Rockwood-Wroe Historic District in the Five Oaks neighborhood even requires Craftsman-style details in new developments to preserve the character of the area. Double-hung windows with grilles in a four-over-one or six-over-one pattern are a defining characteristic of Craftsman design.

Mid-Century Modern Windows

Whether it’s windows or furniture, Mid-century modern design is alive and well in the Dayton area. Many of the ranch-style homes built in the late 1940s through the 60s followed this style, which has seen a resurgence thanks to HGTV. Double-hung windows were popular in Mid-century modern homes and were often used in combinations to make large walls of glass. Wood windows with natural stains that contrast the other interior wood textures can accentuate your Mid-century modern style.

Victorian-Style Windows

Dayton View, Grafton Hill, Huffman and South Park all have the recognizable look of the Victorian era. Bold exterior paint schemes, finely-detailed carvings and trim and bay windows are key features of Victorian style. A variety of windows were used to create unique, asymmetrical designs. Narrow double-hung windows used in combination with arch windows or in bay windows complement the distinct, vertical look of Victorian houses.

Energy-Efficient Windows

Double-hung windows have long been an American favorite because both sashes can be opened for optimal air circulation. With modern advances, you can up the energy efficiency of your home and still get the traditional look and functionality. Most historic homes had windows with single panes of glass. In the northern United States, upgrading to ENERGY STAR-certified windows provides average annual energy savings when you’re replacing single-pane windows.
