If you’re looking to install a bay or bow window in your home but simply don’t have the space, NorthTech Windows and Doors recommends the end vent slider instead. These windows bring class and style to any home and are often more economical than their bay and bow cousins.
Bay and bow window replacement project outwards and may not be suitable for all properties. However, end vent slider windows work on just about any type of home and can be installed easily. They are also the preferred choice for builders when it comes to the construction of new homes since they have the appeal of regular casement windows but with additional ventilation.
This particular type of window is installed when you’re looking for a sliding window but the available wall opening is wider than 72”. End vent sliders make use of operating sashes at either end of the window unit that tilt allowing for easy cleaning. In fact, since you don’t need a ladder and can clean your windows from the inside making your end vent sliders easier to maintain, they’re also safer. End vent sliders let you flood any room with natural light so you can reduce your energy bills. You don’t need to have lamps or lights on during the day and the superior insulation we use on our window products keep cold air out in the winter leading you to use less heat.
Moreover, because of the way these windows are manufactured with two venting units on each side of a larger picture window, they create a cooling breeze when opened during the summer months. You may not need to use an air conditioning unit or turn on your central air system when you install end vent sliding windows further reducing your energy consumption and costs.
Of course you can! All our products are customizable and can be made to suit your taste. When it comes to your home’s aesthetic, you know best and we can create the perfect end vent slider windows to fit your property. These windows use slimmer frames which means your views won’t be obstructed. Think of end vent sliders as easy to maintain, stylish picture windows that are also energy efficient.

There are just a few things you’ll want to plan for: 1. Someone must be home to let our installers into your home. 2.

Remove all window treatments from the windows including blinds, shades, curtains, etc. 5. Turn off security systems if applicable.
Measure the width between the side jambs at the top, middle and bottom. Measure all the way to the jamb and both sides and the middle and record the smallest measurement. Your objective is to buy a window that fits within that opening.
If you are deciding which new home window styles you are wanting to have installed, you may want to look at the different costs of each window style beforehand. Window replacement costs on average $280 to $750 per window installed based on the window type and additional features.
There are five key elements to look for: 1. Do you see moisture, condensation or fog between the panes of glass? If so, you probably have a seal failure. 2. Is your furniture or carpet faded from the sun's ultraviolet rays coming through the window? If so, you probably do not have Low-E glass that blocks the sun's harmful rays. 3. Do you have windows rated for your climate? Cold Canadian climates require higher ER ratings to increase energy-efficiency. 4. Do you struggle to open, close, or lock your windows? Poor operation means the window structure is weak and failing. 5. Do you see peeling or rotting wood around the window frame? If so, it’s time for a replacement.
