Sliding Windows Save Space

Sliding window sashes slide sideways within its frame, which makes it ideal in areas where hinged and projecting windows won’t fully open. This is usually the case with areas near footpaths or close-cut landscaping. Additionally, sliding windows give homeowners more flexibility with decor and furniture placement.

Sliding Windows Allow Unobstructed Views

Most of the weight of sliding window sashes rest on the bottom of the frame, which allows bigger windows without compromising its structure and long-term performance. Big windows allow unobstructed views and lots of natural light, and with sliding windows, you can have both and allow ventilation into your home.

Sliding Windows Are Easy to Open and Close

Sliding windows can be opened and closed with one hand, which makes them ideal for people who have limited use of their hands. To ensure continued ease of use, you need to choose sliding windows with sashes that precisely fit the frame. They also have to be made of material that expands and contracts evenly when exposed to temperature changes. Fortunately, both qualities can be found in Renewal by Andersen sliding windows, thanks to our exclusive Fibrex® material frames.

Sliding Windows Are Easy to Clean and Maintain

Sliding window sashes are easy to remove, which makes them easy to clean and maintain. You can lay the sashes flat on the bed or on a carpeted floor and clean them safely indoors, without leaning out the window opening. Dirt and grit in the tracks can make sliding windows difficult to open and close. Thanks to removable sashes, keeping this part of the window clean is much easier.

In addition to easy-to-remove sashes, Renewal by Andersen sliding windows are equipped with High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass, which features exterior metal oxide coatings that remove up to 99% of water spots when activated by sunlight.

"I was very impressed with Renewal by Andersen. They showed up in time and we received several follow up phone calls as the installation was being done as well as the sales representative stopping by to check in on the installation. The delivery/ installer was very professional. I would highly recommend Renewal By Andersen."
