Don’t even think about buying new windows until you get quotes here...
I grew up in a farmers cottage where I spent much of my childhood years playing with my toy cowboys and Indians in the tracks of our sliding windows.
Whilst sitting on the kitchen table I had easy access to a wonderful three section sliding window that hadn’t been opened during my lifetime.
Fact is that once sliding windows are given a coat of paint they are not prone to sliding without some severe enticement so invariably they spend most of their lifetime in the closed position mostly because they are stuck and unless you are prepared to get the tools out each year they remain closed.
Evolution wise it’s pretty obvious why sliding windows were a popular choice in the old days. It’s about the only window that I’m aware of where the entire window comprises of timber components in that you didn’t need steel hinges or other parts to make them work.
All the tracks were timber and if everything fitted right then all was well. The arrival of paint and smart interiors changed the function from a window that worked well to a window that didn’t. Once the tracks were painted (just to look good) then the function decreased making the sliding sections a fixture rather than an opener.
When it comes to double glazed sliding windows we are talking about a far superior product where the opening sections simply glide in a smooth operation much the same as a modern kitchen drawer.
No need for painting and no need for maintenance other than a wipe down and a drop of wd50 from time to time. In effect they are a smart, effective alternative that bear no resemblance to the original windows when it comes to practical usage.Get FREE Quotes For New Sliding Windows TODAY!
