Sliding Windows and Why You Should Consider Them

As you plan out your window and door replacement, there are several materials and styles to consider. Choosing the right window type will depend on how it will be used, so consider your needs and preferences to make a more informed decision. But if you’re looking to add more natural light and ventilation to your home, sliding windows are your best choice!

Sliding windows are simple in design and open horizontally along with the window frame. They also offer benefits that can improve your home in several ways, such as:

Ease of Use

Many window styles are designed to let in fresh outdoor air, but not all are convenient to operate. Depending on the type of window installed, some prefer it closed because of its difficult operability. But you won’t have this type of problem with sliding windows. Typically, a sliding window has one side that slides on rollers while the other pane of glass remains stationary. You can also have yours made with double or triple sliders for better versatility!

But even if you’re looking for something different, such as patio doors or double hung replacement windows, the material and installation are important if you want them to last for years. Be sure to consult with trusted window contractors who offer excellent services in windows and doors.

Larger View and Improved Energy Efficiency

Compared to other windows, sliding windows are typically larger than other styles, so you have a bigger view of your natural surroundings. This is a great benefit if you love to soak up outdoor scenery without going outside! And, with increased natural light and greater ventilation, you won’t need to use your indoor lights or air conditioning system as much. This means less energy consumption and lower monthly utility bills.

Minimal Maintenance and Reliable Durability

Sliding windows are known to be easy to operate via a push of a finger, but they’re also popular due to their minimal maintenance requirement. This is because a slider window is built with fewer parts than other windows. Their simple design also makes them a cost-effective option for your home!

"Quality product, quality workmanship. Everyone I interacted with at Renewal by Andersen of SW Missouri had pride in their work from sales to financing to project oversight to installation. It must be a great company to work for because that shows in the professionalism of the staff. Best of all, they want happy customers and go out of their way to make sure that happens. Yes, I love my windows (but I knew I would--it's a great product). Friendly, helpful, easy financing, and yes--they pass costs on to the customer for this, but it meant that I was able to get the windows I wanted and needed for my creaky, lopsided old house. Couldn't be more pleased."

"The company representative who met with me initially was very direct, told me how the process would go, explained about why Anderson windows are of such good quality and how they stand by their products and their workmanship. My 3 windows arrived when they said they would, & the men who installed them were very professional, polite, & efficient. They showed me how the windows work and left the room as tidy as it was before they did the installation."
