Slider windows are one of the most popular window styles for homeowners. At first glance, they can look very similar to double-hung windows due to their rectangular shape, but sliding windows feature sashes that move from side to side rather than up and down. Slider windows go with all different types of décor, making them a versatile window option no matter what kind of home you have. They also boast some beneficial features, such as:
Sliding windows are extremely easy to operate, which makes them a popular style of window for homeowners across the country. With two, sometimes more, moveable sashes that sit on an easy-glide roller system, slider windows can be opened as much or as little as you desire to create your perfect level of ventilation. Also, because this side-to-side motion is less strenuous than the lifting and lowering required to operate single or double-hung windows, slider windows would be a better choice for homeowners who are older or have limited mobility.
Sliding windows are often wider than they are tall, which makes the window an ideal style for rooms that have lower ceilings. Slider windows also typically have low-profile frames, which, in conjunction with a wider glass area, provide broad views of the outside of your home. Sliding windows will also maximize natural sunlight into your home, helping to brighten up a room that otherwise might not get enough sunlight.
Other windows, such as single or double-hung, have springs and pulleys that may wear down over time and need to be replaced. However, because slider windows have fewer mechanical parts than regular, conventional windows, the less likely repairs will need to be made. This makes the sliding window a durable, low maintenance window option.
