Modern Single Slider Windows in Toronto and GTA

Sliding sash windows are a great option if you don’t want something hanging outside your house. The sash of a single slider slides the window open to the left or right. The other half of this window is fixed and does not move.

To open a single-slider window, begin by lifting the cam locks so the sash can move freely, then slide the sash horizontally.

When closing the sliding window, make sure to shut it all the way so the locks and the latches line up making it easy to engage them. It is important to close the window with the locks to tighten the seal with the weatherstrips or else the window might be drafty.

The tilt-in feature is also easy to operate: you just slide the sash into the position, simultaneously push both the top and bottom tilt latches and then pull the sash inward for cleaning. To put it back in the original position, push it slightly to the frame until you hear a click and then return the sash into place.

Since sliding windows use more glass and less frame, it makes them clean looking and open for the natural light and view. Our vinyl sliding windows need very little effort to open and close as their shoe sliding system glides with ease along the wide opening in the frame. Even dirt and debris are not a problem for them.

Another great thing about a vinyl single sliding window is that it doesn’t protrude on the outside, which is beneficial if the window is opening to an outdoor entertainment area.

What Is a Single Slider Window?

Single slider replacement windows are one of the most straightforward to use. They have been made for decades from different materials, but the mechanics stayed the same: side-by-side sashes of upvc sliding windows glide horizontally along the top and bottom tracks. 

They are primarily used on the sides and the back of a house (casements for the front) and can be white classic color or modern black sliding windows. They can come with various energy efficiency features and upgrades like night latches which secure the window a few inches in the open position, allowing ventilation at night with peace of mind. This function also makes it a child proof sliding window.

There is a choice of window grill design for sliding windows:

  • sliding window with grills inside
  • sliding window with grills outside.

You can find a few common grill design patterns and grill types below under Single Slider Window Upgrade Options.

Our clients ask

  • When should you use a sliding window?

    Sliding windows are an ideal choice for openings that have a width greater than their height.

    The wide design of a sliding window offers a large, horizontal view of the outdoors. The larger the window, the more natural light you'll be able to enjoy in your home.

  • What are the advantages of using a sliding window?
    • Ease of Function. Due to the nature of their design, a sliding window is easy to open and close because they slide smoothly along the window frame.
    • Increased Ventilation and Sunshine. Sliding window has a narrow frame to maximize the glass size.
    • Very Low Mechanical Maintenance. There are no gears and many moving parts. The sliding window glides in its own frame and has a simple lock.
    • Ease of Cleaning. The operating part of the window can tilt in for cleaning. Once the screen is removed, the fixed part can also be reached from the inside.
  • What is the standard size of the sliding window?

    Sliding windows' standard sizes have widths that range from 36-inches to 84-inches and heights that start at 24-inches to 60-inches tall. Common and standard sliding window widths are: 36-inches. 48-inches.

  • How much do single-slider windows cost to install?

    The cost to install a single slider window is about $160-200. It depends on the size, location and type of installation.

  • How long does it take to install the single slider window?

    Installing a single slider window usually takes 1-2 hours, including removal of the old window. It depends on the location, window size and type of installation.

  • Can you change the direction of a sliding window?

    The sliding direction of the modern sliding window is not interchangeable. The fixed part of a Single Slider is permanently secured into the window’s frame to guarantee the security and insulation.

  • Are slider windows efficient?

    All modern windows are energy efficient now and many are Energy Star certified. Insulated double pane with upgrades like Loe coating and Argon gas have become standard nowadays and make a huge difference to the windows that were produced 20 years ago.

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

    Double-hung windows have dual operating window sashes that move up and down. Sliding windows are maneuvered by traversing a sash horizontally along the track.

  • Are single-hung or slider windows cheaper?

    Single-hung window is also a sliding window just vertically so its cost is the same as a horizontal sliding window. Another consideration when comparing these two styles is the aesthetic — some homeowners prefer the look of a single-slider window for certain styles of home.
