Advantages of Sliding Windows

From traditional casement windows to expansive picture windows, and from cozy bay windows to convenient double-hung windows, there are so many types of windows to choose from. The style of window you eventually choose will affect both your exterior and interior appeal, as well as determine how much light and ventilation your home has.

One often overlooked but highly advantageous window style is the sliding window. Read on as Renewal by Andersen® of San Antonio discusses the benefits of choosing sliding windows for your window replacement.


Picture windows provide great views, but they can’t be opened or closed, which means they don’t allow for any ventilation. Sliding windows can provide just as beautiful views as picture windows, but as an added benefit you can easily open them to let in a fresh breeze and freshen up your living space.


With older models of sliding windows, the tracks were prone to getting jammed with dirt and grime over time. This was the number one issue with these windows in the past. However, newer sliding windows are sealed better to prevent the sliders from sticking even with minimal maintenance. With our sliding windows, you can enjoy many years of effortless operation.

Energy Efficiency

Sliding windows can circulate more air than other styles of windows such as a casement or double-hung window. Better airflow means you can regulate your indoor humidity levels better. Sliding windows can even create a cooling cross-breeze inside your home, saving you money on air conditioning costs.

At Renewal by Andersen of San Antonio, we offer high-quality, energy-efficient sliding windows, and other styles of window replacement to fit the needs of your home.
