Indianapolis Double-Hung Windows

Enhance Your Home’s Ventilation and Functionality With Double-Hung Windows

Indianapolis, also known as Nap City, is a vibrant place full of architecture that reflects its rich history and culture. In the heart of Indianapolis, you can find historic downtown neighborhoods surrounding Monument Square – which are full of colonial, Tudor, Cape Cod and Victorian treasures. Take a drive to suburbs like Carmel, Indiana, and you’ll find more ranch, craftsman, bungalow and farmhouse-style abodes. No matter where you go in Indianapolis, you’ll likely notice that many homes feature double-hung windows

Double-hung windows have been the most popular window style in America for a long time running. These windows feature two operable sashes that can be opened from the top and bottom, and the panes tilt inward for easy cleaning. Known for their functionality, energy efficiency, stylistic versatility and ventilation, double-hung windows are a popular choice for Indianapolis homeowners. 

Commonly known as: sash windows, hung sash windows.

Frequently Asked Questions


  •   What general maintenance is required for my Pella windows and patio doors?
    • Pella recommends you inspect your windows and patio doors at least annually as part of a home checkup. Maintenance can prolong the life of your Pella windows and doors and will help ensure maximum warranty coverage.

      As needed, clean, repaint or restain your windows and patio doors, and recaulk around them to help maintain optimal performance. Also, be sure to regularly check for leaks and improper drainage above or around vents and sprinkler systems that may subject your windows and patio doors to prolonged water exposure.

      Review the Maintenance section of the Pella Window and Patio Door Owner's Manual for additional details about how to properly maintain the interior and exterior of your Pella windows and patio doors.

  •   What makes Pella‚Äôs windows energy efficient?
    • Pella provides top energy-saving glass and exceeds the standards for energy efficiency. Learn more about how Pella creates advanced energy efficient windows.

  •   How do I remove the screens from my double-hung windows?
    • Review the product overview section for double-hung windows in the Pella Window and Patio Door Owner's Manual or click the link below for the appropriate instructions based on the material type, brand and vintage of your Pella product.

      Screen Removal Instructions

  •   My double-hung window won't lock tightly. How can I fix this?
    • The check lock alignment, fully close the window by pushing the top window (or sash) up to make sure it is fully up in the frame. Then, push down on the bottom window (or sash) to make sure it is fully down in the frame. Pushing on the sashes will ensure that the locks are properly aligned so they can engage.

  •   How do I open the lower and/or upper sash of my vinyl double-hung window?
    • To open the lower sash on your double- or single-hung window, unlock the sash and push it up.

      To open the upper sash on your double hung window, you will first need to unlock the lower sash. Then, pull down on the top of the upper sash to lower it. The upper sash on a single hung window does not open or close.

      If the window becomes difficult to raise or lower, remove any deposits - such as grease, oil or stains - that may have come in contact with the weatherstrip, apply a small amount of concentrated fabric cleaner or carpet cleaner - such as Spray-n-Wash®, OxiClean® Fabric Cleaner or Resolve® Carpet Cleaner - to the weatherstrip. Scrub the cleaner into the weatherstrip with a toothbrush or similar applicator. Continue applying cleaner until the deposits are no longer visible. Rinse the weatherstrip with clean water, and dry with a paper towel. Pella also recommends using a dry silicone spray or a thin layer of paraffin wax such as Teflon Dry Lubricant or Gulf Wax.  Do not use oily lubricants; they attract dust and grime, which will eventually restrict the window's movement. Once you have cleaned the weatherstrip, check to make sure weatherstrip is aligned properly on the sides (or jambs) of the window. 

      To check weatherstrip alignment, tilt the sash toward you and firmly press on the weatherstrip until it is properly seated in the frame on both sides of the window. Then, tilt the window into its normal operating position and check for proper window operation.

  •   Besides the warranty on the window, how do I handle service issues after the installation is complete?
    • Any window you choose will come with a product warranty. But that's only half the story. You'll want a contractor who'll provide the proper installation and address any installation-related issues that may arise.

      Pella Certified Contractors receive, maintain and utilize required education of proper installation and best practices consistent with Pella products.
