COLUMBUS, OH – Everybody asks what are the most popular windows and by far the most popular type of window or windows style to be replaced is the double hung window. Double hung windows have one part of the window on the top and one part at the bottom and each of these parts called the ‘sash’ can move up and down. (Some of this information may vary if you are outside of Columbus, Ohio.)
Some people might wonder why would anyone want a single hung window where the top part is stationary? The answer is there are different situations for every type of window and starting a conversation with us we can answer all of those questions in a way that will be very comprehensible to you. In the case of the single hung replacement window question, think of very tall windows that are narrow and there is no way that you could ever reach the top of the window without a ladder. These are perfect cases for using a single hung window since you will never want to move that top portion. If you could move it it could become problematic as you would not be able to properly close it or recede the sash into it’s fully upright position.
For folks that have more of a horizontal window space we offer at Zen windows Columbus the sliding windows which can be usually two parts that slide to the left or to the right and sometimes three parts. It’s not uncommon for windows over a kitchen sink or otherwise wind areas to have sliding windows that are also easier to open and close by sliding the window left and right. Imagine yourself trying to reach over your counter top and lift a window upward or pull it down and lock it – you might throw your back out!
Besides these three types of windows casement windows probably would be the next most popular window and these simply crank open and crank close. It’s very likely that you will remember exactly what those windows look like with a little cranks that are available to turn once the window is unlocked.
