Pittsburgh Double-Hung Windows

Timeless Double-Hung Windows for Pittsburgh Homes

Double-hung windows, commonly known as sash windows, consist of two operable sashes that slide vertically within the window frame. This flexibility allows homeowners to open either the top or bottom half of the window completely or open each half part-way. Sash windows are some of the oldest styles of operable windows, and double-hung windows remain one of the most popular window styles. 

In Pittsburgh, double-hung windows fit right in with the area’s traditional Colonial, Cape Cod, and Tudor-style homes. Whether looking for an authentic replacement on a storied Tudor in Squirrel Hill or building new in North Fayette, with the timeless charm of double-hung windows and the variety of modern-day materials and finishes available, Steel City homeowners can find a window that meets their needs.

Double-Hung Window Sizes

Whether you need a small double-hung window for a petite or private space, or a large double-hung window to highlight an expansive view, double-hung windows are available in a range of sizes. You can find vinyl double-hung windows as small as 23.5 inches by 14.5 inches and as large as 96-inches by 48 inches, for the right size and style to match your home and your budget.

Casement “Double-Hung” Windows

Some homeowners enjoy the look of traditional double-hung windows but prefer the functionality of a casement window. A casement window operates outward via a crank and can extend fully for optimal airflow. Using a grille pattern can help customize a casement window to more closely resemble a double-hung or create uniformity among different window styles.

Pittsburgh Climate Recommendations

Double-Pane or Triple-Pane Glass

Cut your energy costs with more panes of glass. Invest in energy-efficient double- or triple-pane windows that fill with insulating gas for added thermal efficiency.

Low-E Protection

Get year-round protection with Low-E insulating glass. The added protection helps provide balanced insulation from colder winters and warm summers.

Durable Materials

Frequent storms during the winter bring bitter cold and frozen precipitation. Wood with aluminum cladding and fiberglass can help stand up to extreme weather. Vinyl can help mitigate the expansion and contraction of windows in the severe heat and cold seen in the area.
