The sliding window is an easy-to-operate window style that is perfect for most home styles. Renewal by Andersen® of Southeastern Mass and Rhode Island shares with you reasons why you should consider it for your next window replacement project.
It Saves Space
Sliding windows are best for areas that have limited space that won’t fit hinged or projecting windows. Similar to contemporary patio doors, they give you more latitude in placing your furniture, decor and the landscaping right outside the window. Since most of the window’s weight rests on the bottom frames, sliding windows let you choose larger than usual windows without experiencing difficulty in opening it.
It’s Easy to Operate
All Renewal by Andersen replacement windows are precision-built by our expert craftsmen, and our sliding windows are a prime example of their work. The sashes feature a dual monorail system that perfectly fits them against the frame. It allows operation so smooth, and it takes little effort to open and close them. Our Fibrex® material frames are made from wood fibers and polymer. This combination allows for even contract and expansion that prevents stuck sashes and avoids long-term warping and cracking.
It Requires Virtually No Maintenance
Cleaning windows isn’t fun, and if your home has upper-story windows, cleaning them can be dangerous, too. Traditional sliding windows are notoriously difficult to clean, especially when dirt and small pieces of debris get stuck in the window tracks. Depending on the frame material, the dirt can cause unsightly permanent stains.
Renewal by Andersen sliding windows feature easy-to-remove sashes, which not only lets you clean every small corner of the window frame, but also lets you clean the window sashes safely indoors. Just like quality vinyl frames, you will only need water and a clean cloth to clean our Fibrex material frames. Plus, the High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass packages feature an exterior metal oxide coating that reduces up to 99% of water spots when activated by sunlight.
