Smooth-Flow Gliding Windows by Andersen
The Andersen Window & Door Company produces several beautiful lines of solid wood windows and doors. They pride themselves in their quality work, and that is one reason why you can trust their products for your home. If you are replacing the windows on your home, their low-maintenance wood products are a good place to start.
Although they offer many different styles and designs, in this article we will focus solely on their gliding windows. Gliding Windows are characterized by the way they open; one side slides horizontally past the other side.
Andersen has a two gliding options available.
- The 200 Series model is basic and affordable. It comes with two interior finish options (white and pine), and three exterior choices (white, sandtone, and terratone). The glass is an airtight dual-pane, and you have the option of upgrading to a more energy efficient, Low-E panel. There are 19 different grill styles to choose between. The hardware consists of one standard choice. The gliding track is raised to encourage a smooth flow.
- The 400 Series offers a few more custom features than the 200 Series. The color options are the same, although the hardware offers more finish options than the 200 Series. The glass is the most significant difference, offering a Low-E4 energy efficient glass that can help reduce your utility bills by 25%. You also have the option to switch to a decorative or tinted sun-shield glass. The tracks are self-lubricating Teflon glides for a long-lasting smooth operation.
A quality installation is important to protecting your window investment. A good installer should make sure that the window is level for best results on the gliding systems. The window should also have insulation and caulking around it for an airtight seal. Request free estimates from prescreened window installers in your area today.
