Can’t decide on a window style? Sliding windows are one of the most popular window styles on the market. Here’s why they’re so popular among homeowners:
Sliding Windows Are Easy to Use
Sliding windows don’t have complex opening mechanisms. To open them, all you need to do is give your sliding windows a gentle push. This is also why sliding windows are installed in hard-to-reach areas, like the space above your kitchen sink.
They’re Also Easy to Maintain
Compared to more conventional window styles, sliding windows have fewer maintenance needs. This is thanks to sliding windows’ relatively simple composition. The only things you need to keep an eye on are the tracks and the corners of the window panels.
Sliding Windows Provide a Great View of the Scenery Outside
Sliding windows’ appeal isn’t limited to functionality—sliding windows’ expansive glass panels give you an unobstructed view of the scenery outside. You can further enhance your home’s curb appeal by choosing sliding windows with sleek, narrow frames and wider glass panels.
Making the Most of Your New Sliding Windows
Conventional sliding windows usually have thick window frames to provide enough support for the window panes. Renewal by Andersen® pioneered Fibrex®, an exclusive wood-and-vinyl composite. Thanks to the composite’s long-lasting durability, Fibrex frames can support the same amount of glass as a conventional window despite being narrower, giving your interior a wider view of the scenery outside and your facade a sleek aesthetic.
There is a downside to installing a window with a wide glass area, such as sliding windows or a bay window. Heat can easily pass through window glass, increasing cooling costs. Fortunately, there’s no need to worry about that if you have Fibrex windows installed—the composite is an excellent insulator.
