A Vinyl Single Hung Window is one of the most common styles of window there is. The lower part of the window called a “sash” is lifted up to open the window and create a vent. The upper portion of the window stays in place and is not moveable, sometimes referred to as a “top light”. The heavy sash has a weight balancing device to allow the window wo be raised and lowered easily while keeping the sash right in the exact height you opened it to.
A few different configurations are currently available in our Vinyl Single Hung Windows. A standard configuration would be an equal light, splitting the top and bottom equally. A cottage style window would have a taller sash and smaller top light. The oriel configuration is the opposite of the cottage, it has a smaller sash and a larger top light. The most common configuration is the standard, then the oriel. The cottage is not very common in architectural design, however they are available.
