Sliding windows open by sliding horizontally along the window frame. They are similar to double-hung windows, but open side to side instead of up and down. These windows are often used to frame a view or brighten a room, but they have a number of advantages beyond aesthetics. These features make sliding windows a great option for any Greenville, Spartanburg, Anderson, or surrounding area home.
The benefits of sliding windows are:
- Minimal maintenance– Sliding windows have fewer parts than conventional windows, making them a low-maintenance and cost-effective choice for residential homes.
- Durable– Springs and pulleys wear or fail over time. Sliding windows don’t rely on these components to function, making them more durable than conventional windows. Most sliding windows also use window glazing, adding to their durability.
- Energy efficiency– Window glazing improves insulation and energy efficiency. This will result in lower energy bills over time.
- Easy to use– Sliding windows require very little effort and dexterity to open and close. They aren’t heavy and they glide along the window frame with ease. To use, all you have to do is release a latch and slide the window open.
