Sliding windows are elegant and convenient. They’re easy to operate with a single hand, and they deliver consistent airflow into a room. Furthermore, these windows can be easily cleaned with household tools.
Choosing sliding windows gives you the following benefits that increase your home’s value and curb appeal.
Offers a View Without Distractions
Sliding windows allow you to have a view without obstructions because the window slides open at a perpendicular angle. A sliding window has a wide, horizontal view and can be placed on the walls of hallways and bedrooms. To widen your view, you can install a series of sliding windows on a wall.
Increases Your Home’s Energy Efficiency
Sliding windows increase a home’s energy efficiency because they allow for better ventilation and increase natural light. In addition, double-glazed sliding windows have a lower heat transfer rate than single-glazed windows, increasing your home’s energy efficiency by 15% to 20%.
Thanks to your sliding windows, you can reduce your home’s heating demand during colder seasons, save energy and live comfortably with consistent indoor temperatures.
Lasts Many Years
Vinyl can last long and imitate wood and solid textures, making them perfect for sliding windows in homes. Another great option is Fibrex®, which performs well even in fluctuating temperatures. It doesn’t expand and contract as easily as vinyl, so you can count on Fibrex windows to last for many years.
Requires Little Maintenance
Sliding windows are easy to clean and maintain because they have a track that allows them to be easily opened and closed. This track runs the entire window perimeter and extends from the top to the bottom. It can be wiped down and sprayed with glass cleaner.
