WHAT IS A SLIDING WINDOW?

Given that there are many types and styles of home replacement windows, it is important for homeowners to be able to distinguish one from the other. Each window serves a different purpose. Let’s take a closer look at sliding windows!

Sliding windows have sashes which slide side-to-side and are our best all-purpose window. Sliders have pleasant sight-lines and can be an economical option in designs where the casement look is required. They are made with Argon-filled glass with Low-E (standard).

Where can they be found?

Sliding windows are most commonly found in places with an unobstructed view or where maximum ventilation is required. Given that they are very easy to open and close (slide them from left to right), these windows are often placed in places which can be harder to reach (ex. behind a kitchen sink or above a soaking tub).

Special features                           

  1. The seal must be somewhat flexible in order the window to easily glide (open and close). The Owens Corning Air Sealing weather technology Greenview uses, cuts drafts by 24% compared to standard weather stripping.
  2. Because of the fact that both panes can be opened, sliding windows allow maximum ventilation.
  3. Sliding windows are used in openings that are wider than they are tall. They open sideways.
  4. Our windows are made with an Intercept Ultra Warm-Edge Spacer, for a longer-lasting and more energy-efficient window.

Our sliding windows are built to fit your home in an effective, yet decorative way. If you are looking for high quality and energy-efficient windows, Greenview Windows will be sure to satisfy all of your house and home needs!
