Sliding windows are one of the most popular window styles sold by Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey and New York Metro, but many homeowners don’t know about the full appeal of these window styles, or why they would find sliding windows to be better than certain other window types.
If you’re shopping for replacement windows, it’s important to know about all your options – including sliding windows. Below, you’ll find four reasons why some homeowners choose sliding windows over other window style options.
Sliding windows have no internal springs or complicated mechanical parts. To open the window, simply slide it to the side on its track. There’s very little in a sliding window that can break, which means they rarely require repair and are very easy to maintain.
In addition, sliding windows are easy to clean – simply lift them out of their track to access the glass on the exterior of the window. For more information about how to clean sliding windows, talk to your Renewal by Andersen of Long Island representative.
Sliding windows come in a wide format so the moveable sashes can glide open along a track. This wide format is essential to the function of the windows, but also offers an option for beautiful views outside your home, and a lot of natural light. If you live in an area with a lot of natural beauty, sliding windows allow you to see everything around you and then some.
Keep in mind that it’s important to allow as much natural light into your home as possible, because natural light is good for your body and great for staging your house. This makes sliding windows an excellent option for many homeowners seeking to replace their windows.
If you have a hard time opening your current windows, then sliding windows will be a relief. Sliding windows are among the easiest to open and close, of all window types. There’s no lifting or cranks to turn, which means that you don’t need to have a lot of physical strength to operate your sliding windows. If you’re having a hard time opening your sliding windows, then it may be time to clean the tracks.
Sliding windows open and close with ease, and their sashes stretch from the top of the window to the bottom, which means that your sliding windows will help with ventilation and temperature regulation indoors. Want to enjoy the fresh air? Simply slide your windows to the side and enjoy the air just outside.
