Video Blog: Renewal by Andersen® Sliding Windows

Sliding Windows

Sliding windows are ideal space savers and sources of ventilation for your home. With options from Renewal by Andersen®, you don’t have to worry about sticky tracks that this window style commonly faces.

Homeowners praise our gliding or sliding windows in Sugar Land, Texas, for the smooth gliding action and their features. These windows are great when you want units adjacent to an area with high foot traffic, such as a deck, path, or landscaping. They are also great for passive ventilation with both sashes open.

Design and Construction

We install the sashes on a dual monorail system that allows for unobstructed motion. Combined with our own weatherstripping design, our sliding windows provide effortless use without compromising weather performance. The precise construction practically guarantees worry-free performance for years.

We use Fibrex® material for the frames. This composite of reclaimed wood fibers and polymer combines the strength of wood with the low-maintenance benefit of vinyl. Its superior structural strength lets us build frames with thin profiles and bigger glass areas for a maximum view. It also lets us build very large windows, which are great if you want sliding windows in Sugar Land, Texas, that complement your patio doors.

Energy Efficiency

In addition to our Fibrex composite material frames, all of our replacement windows have dual-pane High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass installed. The exterior pane has special metal oxide coatings that let rainwater slide off the surface. This makes the surface easier to clean and prevents water spots by up to 99%.

The dual-pane design also creates an airspace that minimizes contact between the inside and outside surfaces, preventing heat loss through thermal transfer. We fill this airspace with an odorless, colorless, non-toxic argon gas blend to enhance insulation.

The interior pane comes with a low-E coating that filters harmful UV and infrared rays while letting through visible light. These features result in sliding windows that help create a comfortable indoor environment that lets you enjoy savings on your energy bills.
