Double Hung Windows

Double-hung windows differ from single-hung in that they offer the homeowner the ability to open each sash, rather than just the bottom sash. This allows for better air flow and ventilation.

Having the option to tilt each sash makes cleaning easier.

Have a drafty window?
How we repair old drafty windows that rattle varies from one project to the next. In general, Victorian constructions here have settled, often significantly. While we have a window apart we use a hand plane to create the best fit along the top and bottom edges of sashes to create a tight fit and to reduce drafts. To further reduce drafts as well as outside noise, we apply traditional bronze weatherstriping. while reassembling each window, we carefully fit things together tight as possible while still allowing windows to open and close smoothly.
