Single- and Double-Sliding Windows: A Quick ComparisonMarch 13, 2020
Sliding windows are one of the most practical options for window replacement. Their sleek and minimalist design makes them perfect additions to both traditional and modern homes. While they’re a great fit in almost every room of your home, they can also be installed in busy areas of your home where windows that swing open may interfere, like a corridor or a stairway.
There are two types of sliding windows—one with a single sliding sash and the other with two sashes sliding together on a horizontal track. Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee, your local contractor for your casement and double-hung window needs, provides a quick comparison between the two.
About Single-Sliding Windows
A single-sliding window is a popular window style among homeowners tackling window replacement. It consists of two panels, with one sliding on the track and the other being stationary. It has the charm of traditional windows but with a modern touch, making it a good fit for contemporary home styles.
If you are looking for replacement windows that can provide adequate airflow for a certain location in your home or a particular room, this window style may be just what you need. In addition to its majestic appearance, a single-sliding window is also easier to maintain because it only has fewer mechanical parts than conventional windows.
A double-sliding window offers the same versatility and low-maintenance qualities as the one above. With this, however, you can enjoy the advantage of improved airflow, thanks to both sashes being operable. You have the choice to open the left or right panel, or even both. This flexibility allows for maximum control over your room’s ventilation.
Single-sliding windows are usually smaller in width, while the double-sliding windows come in a wider configuration. In both cases, however, you have the choice to customize the window size based on your home’s requirements.
