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. 

Commonly known as: sash windows, hung sash 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

ike the rest of Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh experiences four distinct seasons. Summers tend to be warm and semi-humid while winters are cold and snowy. Thanks to the city’s location on the windward side of the Appalachian Mountains, ample precipitation is expected year-round. Prepare your double-hung windows for extreme fluctuations in temperature with Low-E insulating glass.

durable materials

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.

Low-E Protection

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.

double pane or triple pane glass

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.
