Fort Worth Double-Hung Windows

Double-Hung Windows Offer a Classic Touch

Fort Worth is home to an array of traditional architectural styles, from the ranch-style homes of Plano, Bedford and Mesquite to the mansions of Southlake. Classic double-hung windows are common sights on homes throughout the area.

Double-hung windows have been one of the most popular window styles for years. Commonly known as sash windows, double-hung windows have two operable sashes which slide vertically within the frame. For ventilation, the top sash can be lowered, the bottom sash can be lifted, or both sashes can be adjusted for increased air circulation. Traditional double-hung windows are both easy to operate and clean and provide a timeless look.

Commonly known as: sash windows, hung sash windows

    Historically, double-hung windows have had one pane of glass. Today, double- and triple-pane options are available for better insulation. Energy-efficient windows use insulating gas in between multiple layers of glass to help create a barrier between you and the elements. Look for replacement double-hung windows with the ENERGY STAR® rating for superb energy efficiency.

  • mid-century modern windows Mid-Century Modern Windows Mid-century modern design is not quite as popular as the ranch style homes that have proliferated around Fort Worth, but the clean lines and subtle elegance hold a unique appeal among area homeowners. Double-hung windows are popular in these houses because the horizontal sashes provide clean lines and highlight the flat architecture.

    Across the country, homeowners, including those in the state of Texas, are finding themselves attracted to black window frames. Black has long been synonymous with elegance, and while a crisp black finish provides the striking contrast commonly associated with contemporary style, this color is no longer reserved for any one particular style of home.

Fort Worth Climate Recommendations

Fort Worth is home to what is classified as a humid subtropical climate. The summers are hot and the winters are cold, with less than three inches of average snowfall and rare but brief periods of extreme cold. Most of the annual precipitation originates from thunderstorms that precede heavy rainfall and occur throughout the year. While Fort Worth is generally associated with warm weather, the area is characterized by a wide annual temperature range.
