Gliding windows, also called sliding windows, offer the maximum glass area of any operable window. Gliding replacement windows are the perfect solution when a projecting window could interfere with walkways, patios or decks. Both sides of our gliding windows open on smooth, easy-to-maintain tracks and lift out easily to clean the exterior glass from inside your home.
Available Window Colors
The Renewal by Andersen replacement window color palette is specially selected to match or complement the colors of your home. You can choose the same color for both the interior and exterior, or select any exterior color with a stainable wood, white or canvas interior. Our colors will not flake, rust, blister, peel, crack, pit or corrode, making troublesome maintenance a thing of the past.
See the limited warranty for details.
Details make all the difference, and Renewal by Andersen offers a variety of hardware choices to complete the custom styling of your replacement windows.
