Single hung window
Single hung window is a perfect example of traditionalism in design passed towards modern all-around efficient solutions. Such windows have upper sash fixed in place with the lower one being perfectly operable. This is a design solution common for the western world and has been here since forever. No wonder, many households are equipped with such windows.
An SH window provides a whole array of various advantages with the most notable one being its price. This is #1 reason why people choose single hung options. The price is considerably lower compared to double hung variants or other types of windows. At the same time, the number of downsides is fairly small and the downsides themselves are merely a small nuisance. Let us summarize the advantages of single hung windows:
- Simple design and stylish exterior;
- Easiness of operating the sash;
- No maintenance needed apart from cleaning.
Cleaning is fairly simple
Use soft cloth and liquid solvents. The problem with single hung windows is fixed upper sash that may make cleaning harder. Double hung windows are much easier to clean due to the fact that both sashes can be tilted.
Single hung and double hung windows were quite popular for as long as we started using windows in their modern shape. This is a convenient design solution, practical, and simple. Such windows provide household with enough ventilation and keeps the air inside fresh while providing an appropriate level of energy saving due to physical properties of the materials.
Just like any other insulated glass unit, vinyl single hung windows enable better energy efficiency. Vinyl is one of the most common and cheap materials. This material has a plethora of physical and mechanical properties that make windows better in every single way.
The list of important material properties consists of the following:
- Durability and hardness. PVC is a very durable material despite its light weight. Vinyl windows are highly resistant to mechanical damage.
- Longevity. Vinyl windows will serve you for a long time. In fact, we give you a lifetime guarantee on some of our models. Yes, the color may darken a little in the very long run, but the window itself will be perfectly operable.
- Resistance to chemicals. Various chemical re-agents like salts, bases, acids, fats, and others may harm some materials, but PVC is not amongst them. This material is highly resistant to any chemical damage.
- Fireproof. This is a big point of concern that modern household owners should definitely think of. Yes, even wood is highly protected from fire nowadays, but PVC is inherently fire resistant due to 50% of chlorine in it.
- Low energy conduction. PVC is a champion when it comes to saving energy. This material allows you to preserve heat or keep your air conditioning unit off longer during hot summer days. Either way, you will save your budget from immense bills.
Vinyl is not the only material worth considering when choosing the best option for single hung window replacement in Sacramento CA. Aluminum is an all-around great solution that costs more, but remains the most optimal for constructing unusually shaped windows. Wood is a great choice for those who prefer natural materials and authentic interiors. Composite materials provide you with even better energy saving. Fiberglass is highly durable and also notorious for its energy saving capabilities.
However, single hung vinyl windows are more common due to the most important advantage – price. PVC is cheap on its own and the very construction of an SH window is much simpler compared to double hung windows. Usually, the difference in price between double hung and single hung options is roughly 15%. While this difference does not sound like a lot, when piled together for a big project, the difference may reach thousands of dollars.
Depending on the material type, you will have a wide range of color choices. You can choose authentic textures, traditional colors, and pick a specific shade if convenient. On the other hand, a plethora of more futuristic solutions are also at your disposal. For example, aluminum has its metallic feeling, composite materials emit an illusion of volume, and wood has its unique natural texture.
