On double hung windows, both sashes can slide up and down, providing ventilation from the top and bottom.
Single hung windows have a movable bottom sash, while the top sash remains fixed. Ventilation is through the bottom sash.
Sliding windows allow in more light and ventilation than hung windows. They may or may not have a fixed sash, depending on the model.
Vinyl windows are an affordable, low-maintenance, energy-efficient option. They’re available in a variety of sizes, colors and styles.
Wood windows are long lasting and provide built-in insulation for energy efficiency. They have a classic look, plus you can paint or stain them to match your home’s décor.
Thinking about replacing your old frame windows? Maybe you’re trying to decide on windows for your new home. At Lowe’s we have a wide selection of styles and features to meet the requirements of your project.
Most new-construction and replacement windows are single hung windows or double hung windows. While both are energy-efficient windows and look nearly identical from a distance, there are operational differences with each one. Single hung windows have a fixed upper sash with the bottom sash opening to let air in. Both upper and lower sashes on double hung windows can be opened for better ventilation and tilted for easier cleaning.
Sliding windows are a great alternative to single or double hung windows. They’re durable and efficient, allowing for more light and better ventilation than regular windows. Sliding windows have the option of one fixed sash or both sashes being able to open.
For small spaces, awning windows offer many popular features like unobstructed views, lower costs and greater energy efficiency. Awning windows are hinged at the top and typically open with a crank on the inside frame.
To add style to your home, consider a bay window, which consists of three windows combined and angled outward from the wall, adding space to your room, a better view and more light than a standard window. Picture windows are rectangular, non-opening windows that give a room added light while providing an unobstructed view of the scenery outside. Casement windows can add a modern look to your home. These windows are hinged on one side and can open via a handle crank to a full 90 degrees. Casements provide a more unobstructed view compared to double hung windows.
Skylights can add light and ventilation to dark areas. Available as fixed, tubular or vented models, skylights can work in spaces like closets, bathrooms and laundry areas.
Storm windows can be an inexpensive way to increase the efficiency of your home’s existing windows. This type of window is an extra pane of glass added over the current window, helping to keep your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer. They also help keep out wind and noise. If you live in an area that’s likely to have tropical storms, impact windows are a great option. Impact windows offer wind resistance and protection from flying debris as well as energy efficiency.
For enhanced security, adding window security bars to your windows is an effective way to protect your home from break-ins. Security bars come in fixed, swing-away and removable models with color options to accent your home’s windows.
