New Double-Hung Window
Key feature: Two sliding sashes, a modern update on the conventional chain-and-pulley double-hung window.
Pros: Inexpensive. Better engineering. Available in vinyl, fiberglass, or wood. Quick installation. Sashes tilt for easy cleaning.
Cons: Window trim stands out as new on a restored home. Frames can warp; thermal panes degrade within several years or more. The parts sometimes are not easily replaced after a few years.
Upkeep: Wipe down with glass cleaner.
