Window & Door Styles

Single Slider Window

Single slider windows have one sash that is fixed, while the other sash opens and closes by sliding from side to side. Since single slider windows do not open outward, they are ideal for rooms near shrubs, trees, walkways, and patios.

Double Slider Window

Double slider windows create more air circulation since both sashes open and close by gliding to the left or right. Since double sliders do not open outward, they are ideal for rooms near shrubs, trees, walkways, and patios. To accommodate the double acting sashes, double sliders require a deeper frame than single sliders.
