What’s the difference?

The main difference between these two popular window choices are that casement windows are fitted with one of more hinges on the side of the unit that open outwards (like a doorway) and double hung windows open vertically from both top and bottom sashes.

What do casement windows and double hung windows have in common?

Both styles of window have a long list of benefits that homeowners in Plymouth and right across Devon are actively enjoying. Casement and double hung windows (also known as vertical sliding windows) similarities include:

  1. User-friendly operation
  2. Tailor-made to suit your individual requirements, e.g. stack casement windows alongside each other to form an alternative bay or bow window style.
  3. Exceptional ventilation and thermal efficient qualities
  4. Both available in a wide range of colours and finishes
  5. Low maintenance, easy clean attributes
  6. Aesthetically pleasing, without compromising on essential high-quality home security aspects
  7. Both window styles are versatile enough to suit and compliment traditional, period and modern builds.
