Benefits of Sliding & Gliding Windows
Sliding windows provide the following benefits:
Easy to operate. Sliding windows move along tracks with dual brass rollers. This makes them easy to open and close. And for members of your family who lack strength or dexterity, a sliding vinyl replacement window can be the perfect choice.
Durability and longevity. Gliding windows don’t need operable cranks (like casement or awning windows) or springs or pulleys (like found in older double hung windows). Sliding windows simply glide along an inside track, which improves performance .
A perfect solution for hard to reach windows - Slider windows are perfect behind a soaking tub or kitchen window which is tough to reach.
Increased airflow and views . This window fits in the space of a single, double, or triple sized window (horizontal in design) and offers great views with the advantage of airflow.
Affordability. Due to its simple design, a sliding window is less costly to manufacture and less expensive than casement style windows.
Energy efficiency. Vinyl sliding windows can replace old storm windows, eliminating the difficult task of taking down, cleaning, and storing the storm windows each year.
