Double-Hung Windows

The double-hung window is the most common style of window available. Consisting of two window sashes (upper and lower), both of which independently slide up and down.  Double-hung windows are used in nearly all residential construction. The Precision Millworks’ double-hung window is an energy efficient, quality product that is built to last.  We produce complete window units for new construction and sash replacement kits for restorations and renovations. Rot replacement parts are also available.

Our double-hung windows are built using ENVIROGUARD™ technology to ensure lasting quality.  Our ENVIROGUARD windows are no rot and are made using the highest quality cellular PVC.  Unlike wood, ENVIROGUARD windows won’t peel, splinter, decay, or absorb moisture and they are impervious to insects. Unlike flimsy vinyl windows, ENVIROGUARD windows are sturdy, won’t bend, and are paintable. ENVIROGUARD windows offer greater strength and durability over wood and vinyl windows and have enhanced screw-holding power.  PVC windows have a traditional curb-side appeal and complement any architectural style of home.  Our products are proudly made in the U.S.A and are backed up by the craftsmanship of our American workforce with our industry-leading 20 and 25 year warranties.

Configuration and Styling Options

The following options and configurations are available whether you are doing new construction and require a complete window kit or if you are doing a renovation or a remodel and will be selecting replacement windows.

Grille and Grid Light Arrangement

Window styles for double hung windows:Colonial, Traditional, Prairie, Mission, Arts & Crafts, Diamond, Craftsman, Custom

Precision Millworks offers several standard grid pattern designs and styles for our double-hung windows including: colonial, prairie, mission, art & crafts, diamond, craftsman.  Custom grid patterns are also available.  We can build what you can imagine and design.  Contact any of our qualified dealers to ask about a quote for a custom designed window.

Simulated Divided Light

Achieve improved energy efficiency with while maintaining a timeless appearance with Simulated Divided Light (SDL). SDL grilles are placed on top of the glass and not between the panes of glass. SDL grilles are permanently adhered and are placed on both the interior and exterior sides of the window. The grid/grilles (also know as the muntin pattern) can be applied in virtually any configuration.  If you don’t see the style you’d like in any of our standard options shown above, one of our professional dealers can help you create a quote for a custom window design.

True Light Filler *

* The true light filler is optional and can be used in combination with the putty glaze or the traditional profiles.  A 5/8″ black strip is placed inside of the glass (GBG) to fill the light gap between the two exterior muntin bars.  Blocking out nearly all the passive light, GBG is the most accurate facsimile of true divided light with all the benefits of SDL.

Grille Between the Glass

The grille between the glass (GBG) configuration means that the grille is installed between the two panes of glass. By sandwiching the grille between the two panes, this configuration has a classic appearance from a distance, but is an easy to clean option because both the exterior and interior sides are smooth glass.

True Divided Light

Our custom millwork heritage enables us to create beautiful windows with true divided light (TDL).  TDL window frames are made of wood, not PVC like our ENVIROGUARD™ Series of windows and they do not have the same warranty.  They are made with single strength glass and putty glaze.  A model is available that uses insulated glass where the wood sticking is applied to the exterior and interior sides. If you’ve been dreaming about a custom designed window or simply want a historically accurate window either for a restoration or new construction, contact us today for a custom window quote.

Finishes and Colors

Painting ENVIROGUARD™ Windows

Double-hung windows must be painted for the warranty to be valid.  For windows made of PVC and with PVC components, we recommend light paint colors with an L value of 56 or darker (black = 0 and white = 100).  Dark paint colors can cause thermal expansion.  Painting with dark paint colors will forfeit the product warranty.  For further information, please refer to the warranty details.  Recommended colors include:

Energy Ratings

The energy efficiency of Precision Millworks windows is independently tested by an outside lab.  The results of these tests are reported using an industry standard scale.  By using this information, consumers can reliably compare one product with another, and make informed decisions about the windows they buy.For greater comfort, your windows should keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter, and keep out the wind and resist condensation.

Super Spacer® Warm Edge 3/4” thick double strength, insulated clear glass with Super Spacer Warm Edge Technology to dramatically minimize energy loss, condensation, and noise.

R-Value

The HIGHER the better. The higher the R-Value, the better the window conserves thermal energy inside the house. R-Value is a measure for how much resistance there is for thermal energy leaving or entering a home. Windows help preent thermal energy from escaping; therefore, help conserve the energy used to heat or cool a home or commercial building.

U-Factor

The LOWER the better. The lower the U-Factor, the better the window is at keeping heat inside the house. U-factor measures how well a product prevents heat from escaping. The rate of heat loss is indicated in terms of the U-factor (U-value) of a window assembly. U-Factor ratings generally fall between 0.20 and 1.20. The lower the U-value, the greater a window’s resistance to heat flow and the better its insulating value.
