Types of Replacement Windows: Gliding Windows

Do you who remember the movie “The Karate Kid” and how Mr. Miyagi trained Daniel in karate by having him paint the house from “side-to-side”? Daniel’s muscle-memory remembered the karate movement when it came time to defend himself. Well, when Mother Nature plays havoc in New England, our Gliding Windows are the “Daniel-san” of Maine and New Hampshire defending our homes from the elements by closing from “side-to-side!”

The Renewal by Andersen gliding window (sometimes called “sliders” or “sliding windows”) are so efficient, when you close them, it makes a sound like a suction cup creating an extraordinary tight seal around the entire sash frame. Do you have an old, sagging, rotting bay window that needs to be replaced? Let one of our Design Consultants perform a window inspection. Gliding windows not only come in double-panels, but also can be design with triple-panels covering wide areas. Quite often, to be more economical in the replacement project, we’ve been known to replace a bay or bow window with a Triple-Gliding window and it looks fantastic!

Do you have a double-hung window over your kitchen sink that is hard to open because it is hard to reach? Ever thought about redesigning this style by replacing the window with a Gliding window? Our Andersen Sliding windows may be a perfect solution for you and your home.
