Replacement double-hung windows on newly renovated home

Double-hung windows can be seen on many homes throughout the Harrisburg area. This style of window has many benefits and is great for several rooms throughout your home. Keep reading to learn more about double-hung windows and how going with Pella windows can benefit you and your home.

Benefits of Double-Hung Windows on Harrisburg Homes

Double-hung windows are a top choice window for a reason, and that’s because of their many benefits. For example, double-hung windows are easy to use and provide lots of natural light and ventilation.

Because both sashes are operable, you can open the window from the top or the bottom to let in the fresh air. The two operable sashes also mean that these windows are incredibly easy to clean. All you have to do is tilt the sashes in, and you’ll be able to clean the outside of your windows easily. This is especially useful for windows on the second floor that would be harder for you to clean the exterior. In regard to ventilation, you can add one of our innovative window screens to provide fresh air without letting the bugs in.

Another great thing about double-hung windows is their style. This type of window is great for traditional homes, especially with added grilles, because they bring a unique charm and a classic style to your home.

You can also choose from various finishes for your windows. For example, you can select a white finish to brighten the interior of your home, or you can choose to go more contemporary with a black finish. Another great option is to have a natural wood stain on your wood windows to bring warmth to your home. Overall, double-hung windows offer a lot of versatility and benefits.

See Local Harrisburg Double-Hung Window Projects Done by Pella

Here are some of the local projects our local Harrisburg team has worked on:

  • This cabin in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, was in need of renovation. We installed wood double-hung windows to offer style and functionality. The black exterior with the orange trim makes the windows pop against the siding. The brown interior also helps with the interior style.
  • We also helped transform this Stewartstown, Pennsylvania, home with vinyl double-hung windows. The windows added the finishing touches to this completely renovated home. The double-hung windows provide ease of use, functionality, and a classic style. The vinyl frames were exactly what the homeowners were looking for: beautiful, energy efficient, and budget-friendly.
  • Lastly, this Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, homeowner was looking to upgrade their windows to wood to fit their home’s aesthetic better. The new double-hung windows are energy efficient and enhance the home's curb appeal. The white window frames with the blue trim also help add to the home’s overall look.
