Sliding Window / July 28, 2018 / Burrell Lebel
The kitchen sliding windows are made of two sashes that can slide horizontally over each other. There is a track that allows the left and right movement of the windows. You can add more that two sashes to make your windows taller and wider. Since the track that is made for sliding of the sashes is little above the ground it doesnt allow the dust to settle on it. This way it becomes easier to maintain the windows and dust will never jam the working of the windows thus increasing its life.
Always be sure to avoid abrasive cleaners such as cleansers and products containing bleach as they can affect the vinyl surface or the caulking around the window. Also avoid using a power washer or hard spraying hose as this too can damage the caulk. Besides occasional exterior cleaning the tracks and runners on your vinyl sliders should be checked every few weeks to make sure they are clear of debris. Vinyl sliding windows glide horizontally and open the full length of the window.

If a window lock is correctly installed the glass would need to be broken or a considerable amount of force used to get the window open.
