Sliding windows glide open horizontally from one side to the other. Sliding on a track, they require no extra space to operate making them a popular choice along patios, porches, tight walkways or anywhere you wouldn’t want an outward swinging window. Sliding windows offer easy and controlled access to fresh air and provide excellent energy efficiency when closed.
Popular in contemporary- and modern-style homes, sliding windows feature clean lines and sleek designs. They can feature large panels of unobstructed glass to fit spacious horizontal areas on a wall. Adding grilles creates a sophisticated and timeless look that pairs nicely with more traditional homes.

Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to Your Questions About Sliding Windows
Are Sliding Windows Energy Efficient Options?
Yes, sliding windows, available in fiberglass and vinyl, offer enhanced energy efficiency. These designs have an interlocking system where the sashes come together to create a tight air seal.
What's a Left-Venting Versus a Right-Venting Sliding Window?
Viewing from outside the home, a right-venting sliding window means it will slide open from left to right, and a left-venting sliding window means it will slide open from right to left.
How Do Sliding Windows Open?
Sliding windows glide sideways on a track from either the left or the right side. One operable sash overlaps the other stationary sash when opened.
