Sliding windows are among the many options to choose from when tackling window replacement. They offer numerous benefits, making them worth your consideration if you are looking to switch to an entirely different window style. Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City and Central Missouri shares everything you need to know about sliding windows.
What Are Sliding Windows?
Sliding windows are so named because of how they open or close. The windows’ sashes slide back and forth along a horizontal track. Because of their large glass area, you get a full view of the outdoors as well as harness sunlight to brighten your indoors.
When Should You Choose a Sliding Window?
Sliding windows can give any room in your house a clean, attractive aesthetic, but they’re especially useful in the following areas:
Small Homes – Sliding windows can expand the space of a small home by providing an unobstructed view of the outdoors.
Low-Ceiling Rooms – Sliding windows are suitable for rooms with low ceilings as they are frequently lower and wider than standard window designs.
Low-Ventilation Areas – Because sliding windows are easily opened and closed, they are suited to areas of your home where ventilation is very much required.
Large Spaces – Many sliding windows, particularly those with three or four panels, have a broad design that adds balance and elegance in vast rooms.
Sliding Windows from Renewal by Andersen
At Renewal by Andersen, we call our sliding replacement windows “gliding windows” given how the sash slides open and closed so effortlessly they feel like they’re gliding on air. Both sashes operate at the same time, thanks to their dual monorail system. The mortise-and-tenon joints that make up their frames give them a clean, sleek appearance. And because the windows are made of our exclusive Fibrex® composite material, we are able to offer sliding windows with narrow frames, which means a more expansive glass for a better outdoor view.
