Posted on January 09, 2023 in Pella Windows & Doors of Pittsburgh
There are so many options for your replacement windows. Some great options that work for many Pittsburgh homes include double-hung windows and vinyl windows.
Along with being among the most common window style in the U.S., double-hung windows are also easy to use and are great for ventilation and natural lighting. Vinyl windows are an excellent window material option as they give you a high-quality product at a competitive price. When you combine the two, the benefits are great.
Let’s dive deeper into the advantages of these windows and how you can style them for your home.
Benefits of Vinyl Windows
Vinyl windows are high-quality and affordable. Our vinyl windows at Pella are energy-efficient, durable and low maintenance. Our vinyl window material formula allows for excellent weathering and color retention, making your windows easy to care for and low maintenance. With this, our vinyl windows won't need to be painted or refinished.
Our vinyl windows also feature fully welded sashes and frames and multi-chambered frames to provide fantastic energy efficiency and durability. In addition, they're ENERGY STAR certified and can help regulate your home's temperature, making it more comfortable year-round while also helping lower utility bill costs.
For example, this Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, home had old aluminum sliders that were not helping with energy efficiency. We installed multi-color vinyl sliders to accomplish the homeowner’s main goal of improving the home’s energy efficiency while also helping the homeowner achieve the desired curb appeal. The black exterior modernizes the house, and the white interior of the windows brightens the rooms. Overall, it was a very successful replacement window process.
Benefits of Double-Hung Windows
Double-hung windows are seen on many homes throughout Pittsburgh; they are a classic option with many benefits. For example, both of the sashes are operable and can provide ventilation. Double-hung windows are also stylish and easy to use. These windows look stunning and go very well with traditional homes when grilles are added. Grilles are a great way to add charm and visual appeal to your home. Double-hung windows also provide excellent energy efficiency.
For example, this Warrendale, Pennsylvania, home had old white windows that were not meeting energy efficiency expectations. The homeowners also wanted to modernize their home, so they looked to us for help. We installed black fiberglass and wood windows throughout the house to achieve the style they wanted while staying within budget. The new black, double-hung windows provided the home with a fresh look and modernized it.
The Beauty of Vinyl Double-Hung Windows
Vinyl double-hung windows are a popular choice in the Pittsburgh area because they allow you to get a high-quality product at an affordable price. Here are some great projects our local Pittsburgh team has completed using vinyl double-hung windows:
- The homeowners for this State College, Pennsylvania, home wanted to replace their windows because they were damaged and drafty. We installed new vinyl double-hung windows to improve energy efficiency and the home's overall curb appeal.
- This Erie, Pennsylvania, homeowner wanted to allow more airflow into their home and improve the functionality of their windows. Our team installed three new double-hung windows that can be raised or lowered from the sashes to enable more ventilation. The new vinyl windows also enhance the look of the home.
At Pella, there is more than just an ordinary vinyl double-hung window. Are you ready to meet our newest innovation? We’ve reinvented the window screen yet again! Our hidden screen is exclusively available on our vinyl windows, including double-hung windows. The hidden screen appears when you open the window and folds away when the window is closed. This self-storing feature creates convenience and gives you easy access to fresh air while preventing bugs and debris from entering your home. This low-maintenance screen is also made for long-lasting use. The screen cartridge was also made to withstand water infiltration and hide the screen away from the elements, including dirt and debris when it is not being used. This innovation gives your vinyl double-hung windows a whole new added layer of convenience and is great for adding more functionality and convenience to your home.
