Description of Single Hung Windows
Single hung windows, which are also sometimes called vertical sliding windows, are a very common type of window, currently found in many San Diego homes. Single hung windows have two panes (or sashes)—one on top of the other. The bottom sash is operable, while the top sash is inoperable, or “fixed.” The bottom sash can slide upward to allow ventilation into a room. A screen behind the operable sash helps keep out dirt, debris, and bugs when then window is open.
Single hung windows look very similar to double hung windows, which we also sell at BM Windows. The main difference is that in a double hung window, both panels are operable. For a classic look, found in many Craftsman-style homes, you can add decorative grids to the top sash in a single hung window.
Since single hung windows are vertically oriented, they are great for smaller rooms with limited wall space, such as smaller bedrooms and bathrooms. If large enough, a single hung window can be used as an egress window in a bedroom. They can also be used as part of a bay window or bow window setup if some ventilation is desired.

Operation of Single Hung Windows
Since single hung windows are very common and have been around for a long time, most people are already familiar with how they work. To open a single hung window, simply unlock it and slide the bottom panel up. To close, pull it back down. Most single hung windows will lock automatically when closed all the way, but some will require you to engage the locking mechanism.

Benefits of Single Hung Windows
Single hung windows have many benefits. They:
- Are easy to operate, since vinyl windows are lightweight and the operable sash slides upward easily
- Fit in just about any space
- Look great in traditional, as well as more contemporary, homes
- Can be used as an egress window
Considerations for Single Hung Windows
Each window type has its benefits, as well as things to keep in mind. Here are some considerations for single hung windows:
- Single hung windows work best in smaller rooms, since they are vertically oriented. If your room needs a wider window, consider a single slider, a double slider, or even a 3-lite slider window.
- Single hung windows don't have a tilt-in sash, which is a popular feature in the very similar double hung window.
- Only the bottom sash is operable.
Single Hung Windows in Custom Sizes for San Diego Homes
Replacement windows are designed to fit within the frames of your existing windows once they are removed. Even if you currently have oddly sized windows, we can order single hung windows in any dimension. Every window we sell is made to order, for a perfect fit in your home!
Because our windows are custom, you’ll have to wait a bit before they can be installed. Once we place your order, it typically takes four to six weeks for your windows to be manufactured. The good news is, once we go to actually install your windows, it often only takes one day!
Replacement Vertical Sliding Windows Installed by Experts
At BM Windows, we only use our own team of professional installers on every project. We never outsource to subcontractors or bring in day laborers to help with the installation. This is because we know that proper window installation is a skill that requires a good amount of training and on-the-job experience. Our installers are factory trained, skilled workers who know the best methods for window installation. They work carefully, but also efficiently, so your windows are properly installed in a timely manner. As we mentioned above, our installers can often install new windows in an entire house in just one day! On rare occasions, such as in homes with a lot of windows, our crew may need an extra day to get everything completed.
When your crew is done, they will make sure you are completely satisfied with their work. They will clean up after themselves and answer any questions you may have about the operation or maintenance of your new windows before accepting your final payment.
Product Lines for Single Hung Windows
Since single hung windows are a very common type of window, they are sold by most manufacturers. At BM Windows, we offer single hung windows from the following respected manufacturers:
BM Windows Guarantee
Just about any replacement window you purchase will come with a manufacturer’s warranty. That warranty can be good for as little as a year or as long as a lifetime. At BM Windows, we only sell windows that come with at least a lifetime warranty. Some of them even come with a double lifetime warranty that you can pass on to the next owner of your house.
On top of the manufacturer’s warranty, BM Windows also offers an installation warranty, which covers any issues that may arise related to the installation process. We will send someone out to repair or replace any window that experiences installation issues. Not many other replacement window companies in San Diego offer this type of coverage, and it is one of the reasons people choose our company over others in the area.
When you work with BM Windows, you get industry-leading coverage that protects your investment!
