Sliding windows are special in the sense that they offer the amazing advantages of other window styles. At the same time, they deliver benefits unique to them. Here’s why sliding windows are a boon for homeowners:
They Have Large Glass Areas
Like picture windows, sliders have expansive glass areas. Any window company would say that they’re generally wider than they’re taller, allowing them to frame large views and catch a generous amount of sun.
They Provide Plenty of Ventilation
Like casements, gliding windows let you control the airflow within the room. Apart from the standard two-panel configuration, Renewal by Andersen® of Nashville offers sliding window styles with fixed glass.
The Gliding Fractional Vent Window has one operating sash occupying about one-third of the wall opening for partial ventilation. Wider than usual, the Gliding Triple Window comprises two narrow, operating sashes with a fixed middle panel.
They Don’t Project Outward
Like double hung units, these replacement windows don’t interfere with high-traffic areas like walkways and other finished outdoor spaces, such as decks and patios. In turn, they won’t be a hazard to people when open.
They Give Room for Decoration
Unlike other windows, sliders don’t take up most of the space. In fact, they’re the best option for short walls. Because they usually have minimal height and are mounted high, they let you decorate your rooms with abandon.
They Are Easy to Maintain
Like our other products, sliding windows are practically maintenance-free. Made from Fibrex®, they’re warranted not to rot, corrode, crack, pit, blister, peel, rust or flake. Compared with other windows, the upkeep of sliders is simple and effortless.
