Sliding windows are most commonly found in modern-style homes, where their minimalist, no-nonsense design fits in perfectly with the general aesthetic of the building. In classical homes, it’s less common to find a sliding window replacement, though sliding windows can still make a great choice for areas of the home where a window that projects would be inconvenient, such as in a walkway. No matter what style of home you have, sliding windows are worth considering due to their excellent functionality, sleek visual appeal, and fantastic energy efficiency.
Read on as Renewal by Andersen® of Portland discusses further.
Sliding windows are arguably the most low-maintenance style of window you can find. This is because they have fewer mechanical parts than other types of windows. They don’t have a hinge, instead they simply slide open. This makes them easier to operate and less prone to mechanical issues.
If energy efficiency is your goal for your fall window replacement project, then we highly recommend installing sliding windows. Our sliding windows have airtight sealing, which means unwanted heat gain or heat loss are kept at a minimum.
We’ve improved our sliding windows’ natural energy-efficient features through our window frames and glass. All our windows frames are made from Fibrex® composite material, which has natural thermal insulating properties, allowing your windows to naturally insulate and regulate the temperatures of your home throughout the year. We pair this with our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass packages, which make our windows 56% more energy-efficient during the summer and 47% more energy-efficient during the winter than ordinary dual-pane glass.
Finally, our sliding windows boast a widely varied color palette. You can choose from warm, earthy exterior colors and more vibrant interior colors for your replacement windows. We’ll make sure that your new windows are both highly functional and also visually appealing.
