Double Hung Tilt Windows Pros & Cons

Double hung tilt windows offer a range of advantages and considerations that shape your window selection.



Energy Efficiency

As with all windows available at Big City, our double hung tilt windows offer good insulation. Their dual sashes provide an extra barrier against drafts, helping to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature and improve energy efficiency.


Ease of Cleaning

The tilt-in feature of these windows makes cleaning a breeze. Both sashes can be tilted, allowing you to clean the exterior and interior surfaces from inside your home.



Double hung tilt windows provide versatile ventilation options. You can open both sashes to create a cross-breeze, helping to refresh indoor air and promote a healthier living environment.


Only Bottom Sash Moves

One limitation of double hung tilt windows is that only the bottom sash is operable. This can restrict ventilation options, as the top sash remains fixed. If you prefer more airflow or flexibility in opening both sashes, this could be a drawback to consider.

Our Reputation is built on Trust and Quality


Very happy I was shown different windows styles. We went with the larger pane and smaller opening window. It's like looking through a clear opening. We have a big bushy backyard, so nice to see it so well. I actually had a couple deer come peek all I could see were these big ears in the dark. Our windows are lower. Also went with vinyl them. There easy to wash and remove when painting around them.
The installers were also fantastic, they even re-adjusted our front door from last march 2023 without my asking.
Thank you very much.


The company salesman was great rep. He provided all necessary information and facilitated us applying for the government-sponsored interest free loan.
Fourteen windows where quickly changed by competent, knowledgeable and courteous workers. They answered all of our questions and looked after any worries we might have had. The complicated metal sheet flashing of all the windows in our mansard-type roof was done very well. Everything looks great and the house already starting to feel warmer. No cold is felt on the hands when in contact with the vinyl of the windows and very little when on the triple pan glass. Thank you so much to all of the Big City Windows & Doors staff for a job well done.
