What are sliding windows?

Sliding windows feature a sash that slides to the left or the right, making it easy to let plenty of fresh air into a room.

With a single sliding windows, only one sash slides open. For double sliders, both sashes open, which makes them great for creating extra circulation in a room. There’s even an option called a “3-lite slider,” which features two sliding sashes on both sides of a fixed picture window.

Sliding windows are available in both vinyl, fiberglass, and wood styles. With so many options, it’s easy to find the perfect option for your lifestyle and the unique look of your home!


What are the advantages of sliding windows?

Whether you prefer vinyl, fiberglass, or wood, sliding windows offer a contemporary look that can compliment homes with any architectural style. Slider windows are also a popular way for homeowners to satisfy bedroom egress requirements in their local building codes.

Because sliding windows open without protruding they make a great fit for rooms located next to a walkway, porch, or patio. For many homeowners, sliding windows are easier to open than crank-style windows, especially for windows in tight spaces or at an odd angle. Most importantly, sliding windows are a great way to allow extra air circulation and light into your home.


How are sliding windows installed?

Before we install your new sliding windows, we have to remove the old window from the opening. Once the window and frame have been removed, we check for signs of mold, water damage, or other problems that may have been hidden by the old window.

If everything looks good, it’s time to install your new window! Before we get started, we measure to make sure your custom windows are a perfect fit.

When the cross check is complete and everything looks good, our technicians will set your windows into place, make sure they are level, and secure the windows into position. We will install insulation to make sure you window can protect against the weather, and trim that will make your window look like it has always been a part of your home!


What is the installation cost for slider windows?

The cost to install sliding windows can range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, depending on a number of factors. Installation costs can vary depending on factors such as how many windows you are having installed, the size of the windows, whether you are replacing old sliders or having new windows installed, and whether or not the slider is a good fit for the window opening that it will replace.
