Unlike more traditional double hung windows, sliding windows open horizontally. Due to their function and the way they open, sliding windows could be a smarter option for your home. Available in a wide variety of colors, designs, materials, and finishes, sliding windows offer some advantages that may appeal to your taste and style. Below, we profile sliding windows and discuss their features and benefits.


A Grand View

Sliding windows are often much more massive than double hung windows. They also come without frames. This type of design gives you an unobstructed view of the outside. So if you like scenery, we suggest looking into sliding windows. A bonus is that the windows let more light in. While this could add more heat during the summer, the same sunlight could be advantageous during the winter months when the warmth of the sun is welcomed.


Super Simple Operation

Windows that open vertically can be a bit of a hassle from time to time. Heavier windows can be challenging to open and close. Windows that open upward by not stay in place as they get old. Horizontal sliding windows solve this problem. They’re always easy to open and close, and they remain in place. Even large triple-pane windows require little energy to open up.


Energy Efficient

Sliding windows are more efficient than some other types of windows for practical reasons. They have no complicated moving parts. Fewer parts allow sliders to close tightly and firmly, eliminating the passage of air or moisture into the house. Our windows contain low-E coatings to block cold or hot air flow. low-E coatings keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.


Simple Design Equals Reduced Maintenance

Having fewer moving parts means that sliding windows require less maintenance with virtually no maintenance to worry about, sliding windows will perform consistently well for many years without giving you trouble. They feature smooth pop-out glass panes for cleaning or to make room for a window air conditioner. You can also choose sliding windows that pop out vertically or horizontally, which makes them easier to clean.
