With so many styles and designs available, it’s practically impossible to determine which windows are the best replacement windows. Each of the different types and styles of windows has its own sets of advantages and disadvantages. Moreover, they also typically only work with certain architectural designs, which mean, while a particular type of replacement window might not work in one home, it could be the ideal choice for another one.
However, there is one style of window that seems to stand out among the rest: sliding windows.
Larger Glass Areas, Better Outdoor Views
One of the top reasons for a home window replacement is to create a beautiful view of the outdoors from any room in your house. With this in mind, picture windows have become the frontrunner among the different styles of replacement windows. However, picture windows are inoperable; that is, they cannot be opened. Sliding glass windows offer the same amount of glass area while still remaining operable.
Combining the operability of other window styles with the views provided by a picture window also makes sliding windows an energy-efficient choice. Renewal by Andersen® sliding glass windows, in particular, makes use of High Performance™ Low-E4® glass, which means your home can stay cool even under direct sunlight.
Low Maintenance Requirements
When installed properly by a reputable window company, double-hung and casement windows have pretty low maintenance needs. However, their many moving parts can make cleanups challenging. Sliding windows, on the other hand, have fewer moving parts, which mean they are easier to maintain than other styles of replacement windows.
