Spotlight: Sliding Windows

Trying to decide on a style of window for your home? You have no shortage of options! Have you considered sliding windows? They can be found on many homes today.

What Are Slider Windows?

Sliding windows—also called slider or gliding windows—have one stationary sash and one that glides to the right and left, opening horizontally. Because of this, they provide excellent ventilation.

What Are the Benefits of Sliding Windows?

Sliding windows offer a number of different benefits. In addition to superior ventilation, they are:

  • Easy to operate: Because sliding windows are typically installed on rollers and can be opened with the push of a finger, they are easy to open—which makes them ideal for hard-to-reach areas.
  • Low-maintenance: With fewer moving parts, sliding windows are lower-maintenance than other types of windows—and the fewer moving parts, the lower the chance of problems!
  • Energy-efficient: The sliding windows Shanco offers (from top manufacturers) can help you save on your energy bills and make your home more comfortable all year round.
  • Complementary: Sliding windows look great in any kind of home!
