A popular choice for any room in any home, sliding windows combine good ventilation with good aesthetic. Sliding windows come in a huge range of styles to meet the needs of your home.
What is a Sliding Window?
A sliding window is usually comprised of two distinct panes (or “sashes”) that slide from left to right (or right to left) so the window can be opened from the side and provide full top-to-bottom ventilation. Some sliding windows are able to open from either side, depending on the type and style. Due to the sliding nature of the windows, they are extremely easy to open and provide great ventilation without sacrificing glass area.
Sliding windows are extremely common, as they are very easy to use, and are affordable and easy to install. Depending on your climate, you may have single pane, double pane, or even triple pane for extra insulation in cold environments. Sliding windows are easy to clean, as the sashes can lift out from the sliding track.
Sliding windows can fit into almost any room, since they do not take up extra space to open. This makes them ideal for bedrooms and offices, where a desk, dresser, or bed can go underneath the window without obstructing it.
