Connecticut Double-Hung Windows

Timeless Double-Hung Windows for Connecticut Homes

Connecticut is home to a number of iconic New England architectural styles, including many Dutch Colonial, Cape Cod, and saltbox-style homes, but the Constitution State is also home to beautiful contemporary architecture and historic Victorian homes. And from the rolling hills in the North to the coastal towns in the South, you’re likely to see double-hung windows on many of these homes. 

Double-hung windows have been one of the most popular window styles for years. This style of window consists of two sashes that slide vertically within the window frame allowing either the top or bottom sash to be open at a time or both partially open at once. Because of these operable sashes, this style of window is commonly known as a sash window. Made of wood, fiberglass, or vinyl, double-hung windows are easy to clean and operate and adored by homeowners of all kinds for their timeless style.

Commonly known as: sash windows, hung sash windows

Connecticut Climate Recommendations


Connecticut’s moderate climate means the state experiences cold, snowy winters, hot, humid summers, and pleasant spring and fall months. Thanks to its proximity to the Long Island Sound and the Atlantic Ocean, the southern portion of the state experiences milder winter weather. Windows with Low-E insulating glass can help improve energy efficiency and keep your home’s internal temperature more comfortable year-round.

Salty Air

Salty Air

In coastal climates close to water, your windows are more vulnerable to corrosion from the salt in the air. The closer your home is to the water, the more susceptible you are to the effects. Consider fiberglass to help maintain window integrity.

Low-E Protection

Low-E Protection

Keep warm in the winter by helping to reduce the heat loss from your home. Windows with panes of glass with Low-E may help keep your home insulated, blocking out the cold and helping keep the heat in.

      Clean the window sill using the brush attachment on a vacuum and vacuum off any debris.

      It is normal for water to accumulate in the sill and track. On products with weep holes, the water is intended to drain to the outside via the drainage or "weep" holes.

      • To clean the weep (drainage) system, check to make sure that the weep holes are clear of obstruction (dirt, sand, or building materials).
      • To clean the weep holes, use a small, soft brush to clear the opening. Weep holes may be located both inside and outside the window in the bottom of the frame. If the window is "stacked," there may be weep holes between the units.

      WARNINGS:

      • Do not use abrasive or caustic solvents as they may damage your windows or patio doors.
      • Do not scrape or use tools that might damage the surface. 
      • Do not power-wash.
