Gliding, or sliding, windows provide distinct advantages for the discerning Bay Area homeowner. First and foremost, they offer an airtight, energy-efficient seal when closed that can help lower your energy bills and increase your indoor comfort. Secondly, these sleek units offer your home a contemporary look, with wide glass panes and unobtrusive frames. Finally, sliding windows are ideal for rooms that require good ventilation, like kitchens and bathrooms.
Renewal by Andersen of San Francisco’s replacement sliding windows will give your home a modern look and keep your space light and airy.
The Renewal by Andersen® Difference
Our sliding windows are unmatched by those of other San Francisco window contractors. Not only do we offer superior products, we also back them with industry-leading warranties.
We’ve heard from many homeowners who tend to shy away from sliding windows thanks to bad experiences in the past with faulty or broken tracks. When a sliding window gets off-track, it can be difficult to operate and allow water, air leakage or, even worse, mold to occur.
When you work with us, both sides of your Renewal by Andersen sliding window will open on smooth, easy-to-maintain tracks, so you enjoy smooth operation with virtually no maintenance. Additionally, our sliding windows lift out of the frame so you can easily clean the exterior glass from inside your home. Our windows are so simple to open and close, they’ve earned a nickname: gliding windows!
