Slider Windows: Easy to use, easy to clean – Why this style is so popular
Posted on May 25, 2016 in Pella Windows & Doors of Omaha and Lincoln
Offering a more contemporary look, sliding windows are often used in modern and new homes. But they are popular with homeowners who are remodeling or simply replacing windows, on older homes as well. And it’s not just the modern look and feel of sliding windows that makes them a favorite among homeowners, as you’ll see below.
Slider windows, also known as sliders, are a popular window style known for its ease of operation, wide sightlines and flexible design options. And in Omaha – when spring and fall morning temperatures can begin in the 40s and rise to the 70s by the afternoon – these are convenient features to have in the windows of your home.
How they work
The sliding window is a horizontal window with sashes that slide back and forth rather than up and down. The horizontal design makes these beautiful windows ideal for increasing ventilation. And they’re easy to clean, too.
Low maintenance, durable
Sliding windows have fewer parts than conventional windows, making them a low-maintenance and cost-effective choice for homeowners who want to install new windows.
They aren’t heavy and they glide easily along the window frame. Just unlock and slide them open with ease.
Sliding windows are generally believed to have been invented in the 17th Century in Holland, and were originally known as Yorkshire sash windows. The have certainly evolved over the years. The basic operation is still the same, but today’s sliding windows use low-friction rolling sliders, which result in easy open and shut operation.
