From their easy-to-use design to their energy efficiency and superior ventilation, slider windows make a beautiful and valuable addition to any home. While double-hung windows are known as one of the most popular window styles around, if you’re looking at purchasing new windows, you should seriously consider the slider window.
Slider windows are similar to double-hung windows except that they open horizontally, rather than vertically. They create a modern and elegant look that brings airflow and loads of natural light into any home, in addition to numerous other benefits.
Since they have fewer parts than other types of windows, slider windows are easy to operate and maintain. Slider windows open with minimal effort, which makes them an ideal choice for hard-to-reach areas of the home, like above a kitchen sink, or in a bathroom.
While a standard slider consists of two panes, this type of window can be easily customized to meet nearly any homeowner’s needs or structural limitations. New windows come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors to match the style of your home. Slider windows also come in larger sizes than traditional double-hung windows because of the nature of how they operate. By design, slider windows can be much wider than double-hung windows, so one slider window can replace an entire row of double-hung windows, saving homeowners money.
The large design of a slider window allows maximum ventilation for the full height of the window. Since slider windows are so easy to open, they allow for customizable ventilation, allowing homeowners to open their new windows as much or as little as they wish.
Improved Energy Efficiency
New windows that are properly installed, close tightly and securely which restricts air from leaking in and stops the outside elements such as rain and snow from getting inside. Due to their expert design, having slider windows professionally installed can help you reduce your cooling and heating costs, saving you money thanks to improved energy efficiency.
More Natural Light
One of the most popular features of a slider window is the fact that they’re minimally built, so there aren’t many things getting in the way of your view or blocking natural light from entering the home.
Since slider windows are typically wider than they are tall, this design gives you a much grander, unobstructed view of the outdoors versus a narrower, vertical view that a double-hung window provides.
Better Home Security
Slider windows commonly come with double lock cams, offering homeowners better home security and more peace of mind.
Having fewer parts means slider windows require less maintenance than other types of new windows that contain springs and pulleys. With correct installation, you can expect these durable sliders to last for many years without giving you any trouble. It’s also fairly easy to pop out the operable pane of glass for deep cleaning. Some styles can even be tilted for effortless cleaning.
