Looking for a new type of window option to replace your old ones? As the leading window replacement company in the area, we highly recommend making the switch to sliding or gliding windows. Check out the biggest advantages of sliding windows over other possible options.
Sliding Windows Are Energy-Efficient
Sliding windows have sashes that form a good seal around the frames, making them one of the most energy-efficient options out there. Compare this to casement windows, which are more likely to have gaps along the frame even when fully closed because of how the sash operates.
Double-hung windows are good for most applications, but bigger versions tend to have heavier sashes to lift up or down. On the other hand, sliding windows can afford to have large frames because most of the weight of the sashes are easily supported by the rails. Very little effort is needed to open or close even the biggest sliding windows.
Casement windows may be easy to open, but they can be a chore to close especially those with panels that swing outwards that require you to reach out. Compare this to sliding windows, where the sash is always easily within reach, plus the ease of operation we mentioned before that gives it excellent accessibility.
Installation by Experts Required
Just like when having any other type of windows installed, gliding windows only function to its fullest capabilities if it was installed by a certified professional. Certified window contractors have received the necessary training to ensure that every window is installed exactly according to manufacturer’s specifications.
