Sliding Glass Windows

Sliding glass windows are an unobtrusive way of bringing light into your home. If you are looking to install a new set of windows, why not consider sliding glass windows?

Benefits of Sliding Glass Windows

Sliding glass windows are a great investment and can add a huge amount to the resale value of your home. The benefits of sliding glass windows include:

  • Sliding glass windows are particularly useful as they allow in maximum ventilation.
  • Sliding glass windows also allow you to specifically control the amount of ventilation coming in through your window.
  • The simplistic nature of sliding glass windows means that they won't obstruct or detract from the view outside.
  • The frames of sliding glass windows are usually minimalist in design, so they won't date and are easy to maintain.

Cleaning Glass Windows?

Glass is at its very best when it is sparkling clean - and sliding glass windows are no exception. Being clean and clear allows the maximum amount of cheerful light into a room and does not obstruct the view of the outside. But you may then worry that because sliding glass windows allow all the focus to be on the view, they require constant attention to keep them clean. While this is true, it doesn't mean that you will need to spend all your time keeping them clean.

The solution is to either hire an expensive cleaning service regularly or to fit self-cleaning glass, like Pilkington Activ™ Self-Cleaning Glass, in your sliding glass windows. Self-cleaning glass can certainly prove to be the cheaper option in the long run. This uniquely coated glass does not hinder the light or the view, but simply uses the sun and rain to keep windows cleaner. Organic dirt is broken down and loosened by the UV rays from the sun and then washed away by the rain. This leaves you with a large sliding glass window that has many benefits and very few drawbacks!
