Everything You Need to Know About Replacement Sliding Windows

Home window replacement can be a daunting task. There are tons of windows to choose from and finding the perfect fit for your home takes research. Find a reputable contractor to go through your options with you and gather referral information will help validate their expertise. Check with the BBB, friends and family and do some research before starting your new project.

What Are Sliding Windows?

A sliding window is horizontal and opens by gliding from side to side joining at the sash in the middle. Acting as a double hung window turned on its side, a sliding window is an admirable choice for your home. Their installation allows for increased ventilation because both sides of the window can be opened at the same time.  In addition, they provide panoramic views.  The slender vertical lines provide a chic look to your abode.

What Is The Best Placement For A Sliding Window?

Sliding windows best fit in places where there is more horizontal space than vertical space on your walls. Contributing a contemporary look will have you relishing in your new view. Sliding windows work terrific for rooms that require enhanced ventilation without restricting your view. Typically put in harder to reach places, sliding windows are versatile in any home design.

Pros and Cons of Sliding Windows

Sliding windows are easy to maintain. With the ability of dropping down, the window can come inside the home. This allows easy access to its entirety giving you reach to clean. The hardware for a sliding window is durable and rarely need replacing, making these windows super cost efficient. Another point of convenience is that the locking mechanisms are extremely easy to use.

One problematic issue with sliding windows is that if the sash in the middle does not seal correctly, air infiltration can take place. Having this gap in the sash can also end up creating a rattling sound if there’s a strong wind. Tracks on the sliders tend to collect dirt quicker due to exposure, which requires more attention to maintain.

"We hired Lindus to replace several windows in our home with the SeasonGuard windows. By far we made the correct choice. Both of the windows face the north west and have really proven it was the correct choice. Even on several sub zero mornings the interior glass was still not cold. Additionally, their installation techniques will prove to keep out any infiltration or moisture or air leakage. They will definitely be replacing the rest of my windows and doors in the near future."

"We had 12 windows replaced in our home. We also had glass in a door and some rotted wood and fascia replaced. The windows come with a lifetime warranty and are super energy efficient. Everything went well from start to finish. The window installers were very experienced and knowledgeable.  We would definitely call Lindus Construction again. Our neighbors also commented on the quality of their work."

"From start to finish (in house estimate, measurements, and installment) this company was EXCELLENT. Our windows look great. Can't wait to "test" them this winter. They replaced 62 year old steel framed windows in an all brick and concrete house. NO wood framing! They figured out the nuances of the installations and did a beautiful job. Thank you all at Lindus."
