What Are Single Hung Windows?

There’s not much difference between a single hung and a double hung window.  They look exactly like a double hung window except that with the single hung window, only its bottom sash is able to move up and down for ventilation purposes while its top sash is fixed in place.  Many window companies simply don’t make a true single hung window anymore in their top line window models. Since the advent of “tilt in” sashes, single hung windows are simply not in as great demand as they once were. At Zen, only our Karma windows come with a single hung option.

The main selling point of single hung replacement windows in Austin TX is their price. However, they only shave $15 off the price of a double hung Karma window. This is one of the reasons why most opt for a double hung window which allows you to clean the entire window from the inside of the house due to the “tilt-in” sashes being on both the top and bottom sash of the double hung window.
