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

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.

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.

    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 an average annual energy savings of $3661 when you’re replacing single-pane windows.
