Double Hung Windows
What are double-hung windows?
Double hung windows have two sashes that slide vertically either down from the top or up from bottom. The sashes conveniently tilt in for easy cleaning from inside the home. To assist with the sliding action the sashes are counter weighted so they easily slide up and down and remain open in any position.
Why choose double hung windows?
Double hung windows are the classic American style window and can be found in many of the century old homes in the Old North End and Old Colorado City. Double hungs are very popular and look great in most Pikes Peak area homes. They are the easiest window to clean from inside the house so they are often used on the upper levels of homes. They provide excellent ventilation since both top and bottom sash can be opened. One last benefit is they can easily accept air conditioners and fans.
What are picture windows?
Picture windows do not open or close. Picture window are used to provide an unobstructed view to the outside of your home. Because of their simple design, picture windows can be made larger and in a wider variety of dimensions than most other types of windows. Picture windows are popular for large living areas and sunrooms where a large window complements the view you have outside of your home. Picture windows are often paired with other window styles that do allow ventilation such as sliders, double hung and casement windows.
Why choose picture windows?
Picture windows are great for maximizing our Colorado views and increasing curb appeal. Additionally, picture windows don’t open. That means they have the best ratings for air infiltration of any window available.
What are casement windows?
Casement windows have a single sash that opens by pivoting outward on a vertical axis by turning a crank. The sash is mounted to heavy duty hinges that can open the sash to a full 90 degrees allowing for easy cleaning from inside the home. A locking system closes the unit tightly from a single lever. They can be installed stand-alone or paired with picture windows or bay/bow windows. Casements may be joined together into double, triple or quadruple units.
Why choose casement windows?
Casement windows are the most energy efficient windows of all operable window designs. Casement windows are easy to open and close and offer excellent ventilation since the full window opens out to a 90 degree angle. Casement windows offer unobstructed views but because they crank outward, they can’t be too large or too heavy. Casement windows provide better security than other window styles because they are difficult to break into.
What are hopper windows?
Hoppers windows are used for light and ventilation in compact spaces. Hopper windows open downward and inward. To open the window you pull the top of the window in toward you. Hopper windows have a slight upward tilt when open. They are popular for basement windows because outside debris won’t freely flow into your home if the window is level with the ground. They can be paired with picture windows to provide ventilation and extra light. Our hopper windows are on a heavy duty hinge and you open and close the window by hand.
Why choose hopper windows?
Hopper windows have been around since the 1800s are are often found in the older Victorian homes in Colorado Springs where they brighten and freshen up otherwise dark and musty rooms. We often install hopper windows in basements, bathrooms, and laundry rooms where fresh air circulation is needed to prevent mold growth. They also reduce humidity in bathrooms where opening a hopper window before taking a shower will let most of the water vapor outside to keep the bathroom from fogging up. Hopper windows are very energy efficient and provide excellent security.
What are garden windows?
Garden windows extend out from the house and have glass on all sides except the bottom, allowing extra light and air into the room. The pane on the top is slanted for drainage and increased light. They can have one, multiple or no shelves depending on the size. Our garden windows have unique trapesoid sides that open with cranks, similar to casement windows. Garden windows are easy-to-install and fit into existing window spaces. Keep in mind a garden window extends beyond the house so you need to make sure it won’t interfere with patios, sidewalks, etc.
Why choose garden windows?
Garden windows are beautiful additions to a home that add value and curb appeal to your property. Colorado Springs home owners love garden windows because they are like tiny green houses that can be used to grow herbs, flowers, seedlings and even vegetables. Others love garden windows for the added light, ventilation and attractive, unique look that they provide to a room.
