Sliding window has only 1 panel that slides left to right supporting a large area of glass – letting in an ample amount of sunlight and fresh air into your home.
Single sliders have only one sash which can slide, meaning only one side can open and the other one will be fixed. This limits the airflow as it can enter from only one window. It’s cheaper than the double slider. The price ranges from $60 to $150.
Unlike the single slider, this style has 2 sashes, thus making it slide from both the ends. They don’t use any space, so they are ideal for kitchen sinks, countertops, etc. Double slider windows prices vary by size, material, manufacture, etc. The price approximately varies from $80 to $200.
