Sliding Windows FAQs

What is a sliding window?

Also known as slider windows, sliding windows have sashes that can slide open or closed. Sashes on sliding windows are designed to move back and forth horizontally, unlike double hung windows, which have sashes that move up and down vertically.

How do you clean sliding windows?

To properly clean sliding windows, you’ll want to remove both window sashes. To remove your sashes for cleaning, follow these steps:

  1. Slide the sash towards the opposite side, leaving a gap of about 3”.
  2. Lift the sash as high as it will allow.
  3. Pull the bottom of the sash inwards towards you and remove it from the rail.
  4. Carefully lower the right sash to the floor so it can be cleaned.
  5. Slide the sash towards the opposite side, again leaving a gap of about 3”.
  6. Raise the sash as high as it will allow.
  7. Pull the bottom of the sash inwards towards you and remove it from the rail.
  8. Carefully lower and place the ash onto the floor where it can be cleaned.

How do you put a sliding window back in its frame?

Removing and reassembling sliding window sashes is much more simple than it may appear. To put your sliding window sashes back in place, follow the steps below:

  1. Push the top of the exterior-facing window sash up until it sits in the outer window track (the track closest to the exterior of the window). Continue providing upward pressure and push the bottom of the window sash into place on the lower track.
  2. Next, push the top of the interior-facing window sash into the upper track (on the interior side of the frame). While continuing to apply upward pressure, push the lower portion of the inner window sash into the lower track until it is securely in place.

How do you measure sliding windows?

When replacing windows, you should always have a professional take measurements before making a purchase. That being said, if you’re interested in measuring sliding windows, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Remove your sliding window sashes from the window frame and place them carefully on the ground or in a safe place.
  2. Begin by measuring the width of your window frame, specifically the space between the window jambs on either side.
  3. Next, measure the height of the windows, at the most narrow point.
  4. Finally, measure the window depth by taking measurements of the space between the outer and inner window stops.

What is the difference between sliding windows and double-hung?

Sliding windows open and close horizontally while double-hung windows open and close vertically.

Can I customize my sliding windows?

You can choose either a 2- or 3-lite design, making the sliding window style for perfect customization. With a unique rolling hinged design, this window easily opens vertically or horizontally in your space.

How long will sliding windows last?

Sliding windows typically last between 5-10 years. Window World’s replacement windows are also backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

Can I replace a normal window with a sliding window?

Yes. Many times the space left from an old window will allow for a sliding window to be installed, but if necessary Window World of Lake Charles can adjust your opening to fit any window you desire.

How do you clean double hung windows?

Double hung windows from Window World are made with tilt-in sashes. This means both the top and bottom sashes can be tilted inwards to make it easy to clean both the interior and exterior of your windows.

To do this, you’ll want to follow these steps:

  1. Unlock and raise your window about 2”.
  2. Move the wash assist tabs so they’re between the sash and the frame.
  3. Carefully pull the lower sash towards you and rest it on another object for support (be sure not to tilt it more than 90 degrees).
  4. Next, you’ll want to lower the upper sash. To do this, slide the tilt latches to the top and lower the top window sash, leaving an inch or more of space between it and the lower sash.
  5. Push the tilt latches inwards and tilt the upper sash inwards towards you, and rest it carefully on the lower sash.

Follow these instructions, and you’ll be able to properly clean and care for each and every crevice of your double hung windows.

What is the difference between single and double hung windows?

Both single hung and double hung windows have window sashes that slide vertically. On single hung windows, only the bottom sash can slide, while the top sash is fixed and static. On double hung windows, both sashes can slide as desired.

Are double hung windows installed?

All Window World double hung windows are installed by our factory trained installation team. This includes properly setting, leveling and caulking to ensure your new windows are a perfect fit. Find out more about our window installation process.

How do you open double hung windows?

For double hung windows, both sashes can slide and allow the window to open. To open the lower sash, simply unlock the sash and slide it upwards. To open the upper sash, you’ll need to unlock your lower sash, and gently lower the upper sash to your desired position.

How do you lock double hung windows?

To lock your double hung window, it’s important to check the alignment of your locks. Make sure that your upper sash is pushed all the way up and your lower sash is pushed completely to down so they’re fully sealed. This will allow your locks to be secured without any obstructions.

Are double hung windows energy efficient?

Yes! All Window World double hung windows are ENERGY STAR® Certified. Our windows are constructed with Low-E glass, warm-edge spacers, and insulated vinyl framing, all designed to optimize your window’s energy efficiency. Find out more about the energy efficiency of Window World windows.

What Your Neighbors Are Saying

This was our 2nd purchase of windows. Our sales rep, Jason B,was professional and offered great suggestions and we love the new look the windows give the upstairs. He ensured we were assigned a good installation crew who did a great job on our 12 window installation. Jason also followed up to make sure everything happened on time and to our satisfaction.

I was very impressed and looking forward to my new windows. They called me sooner than expected to install them. It only took about 2 hours from start to finish. The windows look amazing and the ease of opening from the inside will be less of a chore to clean.
Sheryl L.
The workers who installed the windows were very cordial and professional. I was really surprised how quickly they got all 22 windows installed and how great the windows looked! My wife and I were so excited that we bought them some lunch snacks! Sarge and James were great including their boss( forgot his name). Our experience was just wonderful!
