Space in your home is a valuable asset that you want to optimize when replacing your windows. If space is limited, the two window styles you should consider are double hung and sliding, both of which can work in traditional and modern homes.
In today’s post, Renewal by Andersen® of Seattle, the premier window replacement company in your area, discusses the features of both window styles.
Double Hung Windows
When selecting a window style, you need to consider your home’s architectural design and be sure you’re choosing a product that will complement that design. The classic appeal of double hung windows makes it easy to preserve the period authenticity of your traditional home. This window style is a mainstay in traditional homes because of its convenient operation and timeless elegance. As another advantage, double-hung windows work well in tight spaces because they move vertically along a track rather than swinging open. They also provide excellent cross ventilation.
If your home has a more modern look, gliding windows may be a better option. This window style is a 21st-Century favorite because of its sleek, no-nonsense design and vast glass area. Like the double hung window, it slides along a track, usually horizontally.
Features of Gliding Windows
- Easy to slide, easy to maintain tracks, and lift out for easy cleaning of exterior glass from inside of your home.
- Gliding windows offer versatility to your home, by giving you the option of having both sashes slide or only one.
- The narrow contoured Fibrex material frames mean more viewing area for your room
- Gliding windows are ideal for maximizing a room’s ventilation with both a left and right sliding sash
Renewal by Andersen of Seattle offers both types of windows. They are built with our exclusive Fibrex window frames and High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass for maximum comfort, energy efficiency, durability and beauty
