Better functionalities are always an added advantage

Double hung timber windows can be used by sliding them up and down as well as from the sides. Hence using this window gives you an added level of functionality. The tracks of such windows are created using adequate perforations and hence water does not get accumulated inside them for long.

Safety and security

Double hung timber windows are storm proof. So, people who live in storm prone areas can give a robust security and safety to their houses. These windows are built with strong timber and can withstand even the harshest of weather conditions. Heavy rains, storm, snow, hailstorms, etc. are examples of such weather conditions.

Double hung timber windows are a timeless addition to your space. Hence many homeowners are using these windows for both contemporary as well as traditional styled homes and properties.

Circular ventilation with the help of the sash openings is perhaps a unique feature in these windows. So, the cool air that enters from the opening at the bottom aids in making the hot air escape outside through the topmost opening.
