I’m a double hung kind of girl.


… and get your heads out of the gutter, people …


I’m not talking human anatomy. I’m talking window anatomy. As in double hung windows. With the two panes and sashes and all that double hung window stuff.


Clearly I’m not hip to the double hung window lingo.


All I know is my house is filled with casement windows. Which have their pluses. Like offering up an excellent breeze when open.


But the whole opening of the windows leads to the down side too. Well, in our home, that is. Because when open, they’re exposed to the elements. Which, over the years, has taken its toll of our wood frames. Causing swelling. And distortion. And broken seals …


and ridiculously inflated heating and cooling bills.


And that hurts.


The worst offender is in my daughter’s room. It’s in pretty bad shape and our spray sealant quick fixes are no longer doing the trick. We’ve prolonged this purchase for long enough. Which means I’m in the market for a replacement window …


With my eye on something double hung. Like this one from Integrity Windows.

Double Hung Window

Though, I do worry about the sizes … well … sizing. If so, we’ll then go with the Ultrex casement. Only this time, no wood frames. No siree. We’ll be going with Integrity’s Ultrex Fiberglass Windows and Doors. They’re pultruded fiberglass (sounds fancy, right?) and are billed as the perfect building material for windows and doors.That pultruded fiberglass makes them durable, strong, stable, low-maintenance and efficient.


Now that window sounds like it can stand up to the elements when open …


and lower my heating and cooling bills too!


And once that fancy new pultruded fiberglass window is installed, I’ll be dressing it up all fancy like too. In fact, I’ve been pinning a bunch of window treatment ideas in anticipation, but am leaning towards something like this …


Simple. Clean. And it’ll let our shiny new Ultrex window take center stage.

  3. Tammy Jaben says

    We replaced all our windows with Integrity double hung windows about 7 yrs ago and I love them. Our home is a 1930s and we bought the closest size to the window and then our installer did some magic with wood trim to make them fit – I wasn’t about to pay for custom windows! We still have 2 triangle shaped windows that need to be replaced (attic) that I would love to change out also!
