Single Hung and Double Hung Windows
Depending on the style and design of your home, you may have either Single Hung or Double Hung windows. These types of windows are similar in appearance but have 1 major difference. Single Hung windows have a stationary top panel and a lower panel that raises and lowers. However, in the double hung window, both of the panels can be raised and lowered. These styles of windows are popular in place of narrow sliding windows which are unstable when rolling back and forth. For example, some bathroom sliding windows. These types of windows are also popular in Victorian style homes and homes with old wood sash windows.
