If you are looking to replace a window in your home and are torn between a slider and a double hung, we are here to guide you through the selection process. The window you choose will depend heavily on the room in which it is in, its intended purpose, and your personal preference.
These happen to be two of the most popular window styles around, known for their beauty, functionality and ease of maintenance.
Double Hung Windows
A double hung window moves up and down in its frame, making it a perfect fit for most window openings. They give you the best ventilation, plus they’re easy to clean because the windows can tilt in. They match most home styles and are conducive to most rooms in a house, as they don’t take up a lot of interior space and can be produced in a variety of sizes.
Featuring two window sashes that open vertically, one slides right over the other. Our Bristol double hung windows are stylish, rugged and attractive, with window frames and sashes available in a wide range of colors and finishes to enhance your home’s décor.
Unlike a double hung window, this type of window slides open side-to-side along a track. Ideal for wider spaces, such as when replacing a picture window, sliders are easy to use and maintain. Our Bristol sliders feature sturdy frames and sashes with Low-E glass for the highest levels of energy efficiency.
Which One is Best?
When you’re on the hunt for a window that’s both stylish and energy efficient, you can’t go wrong with double hung windows. They’re designed to lower your energy bills and make your space feel more comfortable. They work well in most rooms, especially in rooms where you have air conditioner units, featuring the highest number of style and color options of all window styles.
If ventilation is your main goal, sliders are the way to go. Due to their unique sliding capabilities, sliders top the list for maximum ventilation. Best suited for rooms with just one window, they are bold and make a statement to enhance any décor. They’re particularly great for areas that face a backyard or a garden: you get more fresh air and an unobstructed view thanks to its low-profile, sleek frame.
If ease of maintenance is what you’re going for, both styles will meet your needs. They’re both very easy to clean and maintain, with all double hung windows and some sliders equipped with tilt-in and lift-out features.
