4 Benefits of Installing Sliding Windows

Sliding windows are a great addition to any home. They save space, provide unobstructed views and are easy to use and maintain. 

What are their other advantages? 

Benefits of Installing Sliding Windows

1. Ease of Use 

Sliding windows have simple opening mechanisms that are easy to use. Thanks to their ease of use, sliding windows are often installed in hard-to-reach areas, like the area above the kitchen sink.  

2. Ease of Maintenance 

Sliding windows’ simple opening mechanisms are also easier to clean. Simply take the windows off the tracks and then vacuum off dust and brush off grime. Renewal by Andersen® also added a few features to lower our windows’ maintenance needs. For instance, a Renewal by Andersen sliding window replacement has rust-resistant Fibrex® tracks shaped for easier cleaning. 

What Is Fibrex?  

Fibrex is an exclusive proprietary composite that combines the best qualities of wood and vinyl. This material is exceptionally durable (it’s two-times stronger than vinyl and doesn’t expand or contract in extreme temperatures) and resists common window issues such as rot and corrosion. 

3. Space-Saving Design 

Sliding windows are a great choice if you want to free up space in your home. Since sliding windows, as the name suggests, slide instead of swinging open, they take up less space. 

4. Unobstructed Views 

Thanks to their simple frame designs, sliding windows have wider glass areas that can give you better views of the scenery outside. 

Important note: Windows with wide glass areas can improve indoor natural lighting and brighten the mood inside. However, sunlight can be too much of a good thing. To prevent your home from becoming too warm, we recommend installing energy-efficient windows with glass glazing. Renewal by Andersen offers a wide variety of energy-efficient glass options. One of them is our High Performance Low-E4 SmartSun™glass, which is 45% and 56% more energy-efficient than a dual-pane glass unit in summer and winter respectively. 

Renewal by Andersen of Montana offers a wide variety of windows, including sliding and picture windows. To schedule a free consultation, call us at (406) 259-3944 or fill out this form


"I highly recommend Renewal by Andersen. We were treated well and everything went smoothly from start to finish. The company kept in contact with me before, during, and after the installation and let me know what to expect. I'm in love with my new windows! I will be using this company again when we refinish our basement. "
