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!

"Excellent service and product! They checked in with me every few weeks while we were waiting for the order. I was impressed with Sam, who measured my windows and headed the installation crew. He was respectful and patient with his team. They cleaned up after themselves. Before the new windows I had huge windows that didn’t open. Now I feel much safer and get better temperatures in those rooms."

"My experience with Anderson Renewal was amazing! From the first meeting with Miranda to choose my windows and doors to the installation provided by Tim and his crew was a pleasure! I just bought a home built in the 1960's that needed new windows and a new double front door with sidelights. As everyone knows Anderson Windows are great, but it was the people I interacted with from Anderson that made it such a great experience. It took three days for the windows and door to be installed and they "worked" every minute they were here. My huge front door took most of the day to install because they had to put in a new header and other improvements to make it fit! They even put up new drywall on the inside. Many people in the neighborhood have stopped by to comment on my beautiful front door! I think the crew left my house cleaner than it was before they started! Constantly cleaning up after themselves. I am thrilled with my windows and feel lucky to have met the team at Anderson."
