Why Tacoma Homeowners Choose Horizontal Sliding Windows

Also known as gliding windows or slider windows, horizontal sliding windows open and close in line with your wall along a smooth track. They typically include two sashes, with one sliding over the other, although gliding windows are also available in three-sash options. Their ease of operation makes them an excellent choice for hard-to-access places and non-obstructive when placed near patios, porches, and walkways. With a large glass area, they offer ample natural light and an expansive view of the outdoors, and their clean lines further enhance the view. The air-tight seal, when closed, aids in energy efficiency, helping keep your home well-insulated while providing plenty of fresh air when they’re opened. Combining modern aesthetics and practical energy efficiency, gliding windows are popular in many homes.

Milgard Ultra Series Fiberglass Gliding Windows 

The Milgard Ultra Series fiberglass gliding windows are unmatched regarding energy performance and technology. Fiberglass is an eco-friendly material that provides the highest efficiency levels available.

The final effect is a window with minimal thermal transfer that remains resistant to swelling, rotting, and warping, allowing for a longer lifespan.

Milgard Tuscany Series Sliding Windows

Many vinyl window manufacturers take shortcuts regarding their vinyl compounds, but the Tuscany Series by Milgard doesn’t skip a single step. This superior vinyl product line offers the highest degree of structural strength, UV inhibition, and glass efficiency in the industry. These features and sightlines that mimic traditional wood windows result in a beautiful, high-end custom vinyl replacement window.
