Should You Get a Single or Double Sliding Window?

In this blog, a residential window contractor talks about the difference between a sliding and double sliding window to help you figure out which one works best for you. 

Should You Get a Single or Double Sliding Window?

What Is a Sliding Window?

Sometimes called a slider, a sliding window is helpful for increasing the airflow in stuffy or cramped spaces. This type of window is extremely popular because it not only offers improved air circulation inside a room but it is also incredibly easy to clean and maintain. A sliding window has one stationary sash and one sash that opens and closes by gliding it to the left or right. Sliding windows are known for the practicality of traditional windows but with a modern charm that makes them a good fit for contemporary homes.

What Is a Double Sliding Window?

Double sliding windows offer the same versatility of casement windows and minimal maintenance requirement of sliding windows, but with even better airflow. Instead of one movable sash, a double slider features two movable sashes that slide for maximum control over the ventilation in the room. Both sashes pop out for easy cleaning and maintaining.

Best Places for a Sliding Window in Your Home

You will want to install sliding windows in places where you need ventilation. Areas like laundry rooms, bathrooms, and kitchens can take advantage of good-quality sliding windows. You can also make the most of sliding windows when installed in nooks that are hard to reach because these windows can be used with little effort.
