Sliding Windows

Quality windows designed with diligence

Sliding windows offer simplicity and a sleek look

Sliding windows feature a one fixed sash and a moving sash that glides alongside the other horizontally. This replacement style is most liked for its ease of accessibility, broad design and flat, compact profile.

Commonly known as: horizontal sliding windows, gliding windows, slider windows

There is a single panel for the sliding windows that slides open horizontally. Although also having an operable sash, they have a wide area of glass, allowing an essential amount of natural light and fresh air to reach the home.

Sliding windows function similarly to a single-hung window where a single sash glides over a fixed sash, however sliding windows open horizontally rather than vertically. They are a classic choice and, through their flexibility, durability and scalability, have remained popular.

This type of window is a great replacement option in areas to where your reach is limited. It typically works best for broad openings that are wider than they are tall.
