2. Double Hung - both upper and lower sashes move up and down.
3. Slider - similar to double hungs but opens horizontally for a wider view.

Our manufacturing partner Soft-Lite Windows manufactures all our windows. Each one has a National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) label that measures energy efficiency. This is the only measurement system accepted by the U.S. Department of Energys Energy Star program. You will be glad to know that Soft-Lite has been recognized for highly energy-efficient window design and construction. In fact, Soft-Lite was named the 2014, 2015 and 2016 Energy Star Partner of the Year by the EPA.
