Frequently Asked Questions for Single Sliding Windows  

Sliding or gliding windows are a common feature in homes nowadays. Rather than opening outwardly, sliding doors open horizontally or to the side. Sliding windows move along a wooden, metallic, or vinyl track fitted at the top and bottom of the window frame. The window is then suspended with rollers that glide onto the track thus moving the sash to the side. As the sash in such windows does not move outwardly, sliding windows are ideal for rooms that face the porch, deck, or a walkway.

When removing your sliding window’s sash, follow the steps below:

  • Locate the window’s track which is visible when the window is closed and using a hook,pry it out from the frame
  • Slide the moving sash all the way. Tilt it forward, lift, and swing the bottom out of the window sliding
  • Reverse these steps to reinstate the sash and the track

NO! Only a single hung window should be installed vertically. Window manufacturers design the windows to be oriented and move in a specific direction or function in a certain way to be effective at preventing moisture and water from getting into your home. When you change the orientation of a single-window by installing it horizontally, water and moisture may leak into your home, resulting in property damage as well as mold and mildew growth. Besides, the wrongly oriented sill implies that your window has no sill, leading to the accumulation of dust and debris. You are also at risk of voiding your product’s warranty due to incorrect installation.

While it is tempting to try to fix a broken lock yourself, feel free to contact us as all replacement windows have a lifetime warranty against defects

Yes. Installing double glazed single sliding windows is recommended for HOT Arizona weather.
A double glazed window is made up of two layers of glass panels that are separated by a void that consists of a tight vacuum or inert gas. While their benefits have been particularly touted during the colder months of the year, double glaze single-hung windows also do a great job of keeping the heat out of your home. The void between the two panes acts as insulation, thus preventing condensation and heat transfer into or out of your home. Due to the ability to control the temperatures within your home, installing double glazed windows improves your home’s energy efficiency, which could earn you some tax credits.

To effectively clean your sliding window, you need to remove the sash by following the steps provided above. Lay it on the ground and wash either side with a solution of water and a tablespoon or two of distilled white vinegar. Gently scrub with a soft cloth and dry the window with a terry towel. Polish the glass with a wad of old newspapers to get rid of water streaks. Vacuum the sliding window’s track before reinstalling.
