You can’t go wrong when choosing popular double-hung or casement windows for your home. However, the great thing about a window replacement is that you have the option to consider other window styles available to you. For example, sliding windows are worth considering, especially if any of these circumstances apply to you:
1. You are planning an accessible remodel. Whether you’re living with an elderly family member or a loved one with a mobility issue, it pays to upgrade your home to make it more accessible for them. Apart from installing grab bars in your bathroom or lowering the kitchen counter for a wheelchair user, you can also replace your current windows with sliding ones. Their smooth and effortless operation allows anyone in your household, regardless of age and ability, to gently push or tug the sashes sideways.
2. You want to frame a beautiful outdoor view. Picture windows are known for framing outdoor views. Unfortunately, they’re fixed, which means they’re inoperable. If you want operable windows that offer uninterrupted views, sliding windows are the way to go. With these, you can also maximize ventilation by letting fresh air into your home.
3. You want to save space. Casement windows swing in and out when you open or close them, but they can be difficult to operate when you install them in tight corners. You won’t have this kind of issue when you choose sliding windows. Seeing as sliding windows move along a horizontal track, you don’t have to worry about having to switch up the placement of your furniture.
At Renewal by Andersen® of Montana, we offer sliding windows that can help you maximize your space and update your interiors at the same time. Enjoy crisp, clean angles as part of a compact design backed by the industry’s strongest frame and energy-efficient glass.
