Fall River Double-Hung Windows

Enjoy the Classic Style and Great Ventilation of Double-Hung Windows

Fall River is a quaint, historic town nestled in the Pioneer Valley in Southern New England. As you drive through neighborhoods like Longmeadow, Wilbraham, East Longmeadow, and Northampton, you’ll likely see many historic homes that have stood the test of time. The architectural home styles in Fall River are varied – popular styles include Ranch, Farmhouse, Colonial, Craftsman, and Cape Cod. 

As the most popular window style in America, you may notice that many homes in Fall River have double-hung windows. These windows have two operable sashes that can be opened from the top and bottom, both of which tilt inward for easy cleaning. If you’re building a new home or you’re in need of a window replacement in Fall River, double-hung windows are a great choice – plus, they can be customized to match your unique needs and style. 

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.

  •   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.

  •   What window materials and features are best suited for this region's climate?
    • All of our window materials (vinyl, wood, and fiberglass) can withstand our climate! Having beautiful, long-lasting windows comes down to proper installation and regular maintenance.

      Each of our windows and doors offers favorable features. Aluminum clad offers turtle-shell-type protection on the exterior of the unit so you can enjoy the beauty of the wood on the interior. Our vinyl and fiberglass are good for those seeking a more maintenance-free option. Additionally, our blinds-between-the-glass help with seasonal allergens in our climate.
