When considering replacement windows there are seemingly endless options. If you’re looking for a classic window style that can be updated with modern sophistication, consider double hung windows.

The key feature of double hung windows is the moveable sashes, creating the “double hung” look. These two sashes slide up or down to open, opening from the top or the bottom, thus giving you double the options when opening the window.

Double hung windows are a classic window style that has been used in homes for centuries. Double hung windows were a key feature in buildings and homes in the 18th and 19th centuries. In fact, in the Victorian era, double hung windows were a very popular window style. Now using double hung windows can create a classic look that reflects its Victorian popularity.

At Renewal by Andersen, our double hung windows feature a traditional mortise-and-tenon joinery. While some double hung windows can be difficult to clean, ours are designed to tilt in for easy cleaning. We also offer a wide range of color and design options so you can keep the traditional aesthetic of a double hung window or put your own modern twist on this classic window style.

Hear From Our Customers

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!
