When this Lakewood, Ohio homeowner called us for replacement windows for the enclosed porch we were excited to show off our expertise. With our company being based in Lakewood, Ohio we’ve done a number of window replacement, siding and entry door jobs in the city so we had the experience of dozens of these jobs to pull on when making recommendations. This home owner had bought the 1920’s era Lakewood, Ohio home after the previous homeowner had enclosed the porch and installed a series of 10 aluminum storm windows – which worked great for keeping snow and rain out but weren’t conducive to transitioning the porch area into a more climate-controlled and secure home office.
Being based out of Lakewood this method of using an old porch to increase your homes livable space is very familiar to us so we were happy to prescribe some gorgeous and affordable 2-Lite Sliders with colonial style grids to give this Lakewood home a beautiful face-lift at a low cost while keeping the cold air out in the winter and sliding those sashes open for maximum ventilation in the summer!
A two-lite slider, 2 lite slider, or sliding window with two sashes is basically just that – a window with two sliding sashes that open side to side instead of up and down. By using a 2-lite slider for this application we were able to give the whole front of the home an up-scale glass-front look while improving energy efficiency in the front room and all at an affordable cost!
