A sliding window (which we call gliding window) is one of the best types to consider when you’re looking for a window replacement. They’re easier to maintain than other window types and they’re space-efficient. Most importantly, they’re also among the classes of windows that offer the best view. Renewal by Andersen® of Phoenix examines just how easier life is with a sliding window.
Since this unit has fewer moving parts, you don’t have to spend too much to maintain a gliding window. You just need to make sure the windowpanes are clean and the rails are free from obstructions.
Considering that to open and close a gliding window you just need to slide a panel one way or the other, these window types are one of the easiest to use. Unlike a casement window, you don’t need to operate a lever to utilize the window. And unlike a double-hung window, you don’t need to ensure that a panel doesn’t accidentally close. Just slide the panel and that’s it.
This is probably the best thing about gliding windows. Since there are no panels, frames or mechanisms taking up any of the window’s space, you have an unobstructed view through the window. And since the frame is made up of the panel’s individual frames, there’s much more glass to see through, which is even more evident with our Fibrex® frame.
The Renewal by Andersen Difference
And thanks to Renewal by Andersen of Phoenix’s Fibrex frames, these gliding windows are now more energy-efficient than ever. That’s because Fibrex is a material that combines the strengths of wood and vinyl with twice the latter’s strength. Apart from being extremely tough, it also doesn’t warp easily, ensuring your energy insulation is not marred by gaps in the seal.
