Sliding windows are great additions to homes, but many homeowners don’t understand all their features. In today’s post, we provide some lesser-known facts about sliding windows.
You Can Open Both Panels for Ventilation
If your room feels stuffy, you can easily open both panels of a sliding window for better ventilation. That is why sliding windows are the perfect choice for areas in your home that get easily crowded, such as your kitchen and living room.
The Glass Panels Can Be Lifted for Better Cleaning
Maintenance is the key to keeping your windows around for a long time, which is why sliding glass windows are designed to be cleaned entirely by lifting the panels out and washing both the interior and exterior side of the glass with ease.
The Grilles Are Removable
Apart from lifting glass panels for an easy cleaning method, windows like sliding windows and casement windows have removable grilles you can wash thoroughly as well.
We all know grilles on windows add to beauty and style, but they’re also more inclined to gather dust and grime, so they have to be properly cleaned now and then.
They Defend Against Allergens and Insects
Renewal by Andersen® offers the option of installing the TruScene® micro-fine stainless steel mesh for allergen protection.
Most commercially manufactured insect screens get in the way of your window’s views by cloaking the scenery with a noticeable screen net. But, the TruScene insect screen allows more fresh air and sunlight in without compromising the beauty of your surroundings.
