Description of 3-Lite Slider Windows
3-Lite slider windows have three distinct window panels (also known as sashes) within a larger frame. Typically, the center panel is larger than the two end panels. The center sash is stationary, meaning it doesn’t open and close. The two end panels are operable. You can slide one or both of them horizontally toward the center panel to allow fresh air into your home. A screen is installed behind both of the operable sashes to help keep out dust, debris, and unwanted pests when the window is open. There is no screen behind the stationary panel, giving you a clear view of the outdoors! Each operable panel has a locking mechanism on the inside, which keeps them from being opened from the outside. All the windows we sell at BM Windows pass a stringent forced entry resistance test.
3-Lite slider windows are sometimes called "horizontal sliders" or "horizontal sliding windows," although these terms can also be applied to single slider windows and double slider windows, which look and operate similarly, but only have two sashes.
3-Lite sliders are commonly used in larger rooms, such as family rooms, living rooms, and large master bedrooms. They are a great choice when a lot of natural light is desired in a room, but you still want the option to allow in fresh air. For this reason, some homeowners choose to replace their old picture windows, which can’t be opened or closed, with 3-lite sliders.

Operation of 3-Lite Slider Windows
Most people are familiar with how 3-lite slider windows operate, since they are very common in homes throughout San Diego. To open, you simply unlatch each of the two end panels and slide them toward the center panel. The sashes slide smoothly in grooves or tracks.
If you currently have a horizontal sliding window that doesn’t open and close smoothly, you should know that you won’t have that problem with the windows you buy from BM Windows! We sell only high-quality sliding windows that glide open and closed with ease. All it takes is an occasional cleaning of the window tracks to keep your windows operating as smoothly as the day they were installed!

Benefits of 3-Lite Slider Windows
3-Lite slider windows offer San Diego homeowners many benefits. They:
- Allow in a good amount of natural light, making them great for large rooms
- Allow fresh air to come in from both sides of the window
- Slide open and closed with ease
- Are available in custom sizes, with many options to choose from
Considerations for 3-Lite Slider Windows
Each style of replacement window has its benefits and some things to consider. Here are a few things to keep in mind before purchasing 3-lite sliders for your San Diego home:
- Horizontal slider windows are a great option for walls with limited vertical space, such as in homes with low ceilings, but they do require more horizontal wall space.
- Slider windows are best for rooms on the ground floor of a home. For second-story rooms, you may want to consider single hung or double hung windows with tilt-in sashes, which make the cleaning of the exterior glass a little easier.
- Vinyl replacement windows, in general, require very little upkeep. However, with slider windows, you will need to occasionally clean the window’s track to make sure the operable sashes continue to open and close freely.
Horizontal Sliding Windows that Are Made to Order
Every window we sell at BM Windows is custom made just for your San Diego home! When you place your order, you not only get to choose the styles of windows you want, but you can also select from decorative options like different frame designs, different frame colors, and/or decorative grids. You can also choose to upgrade some or all of your windows with options like improved sound suppression or a more advanced glazing system. At your in-home appointment, we can go over all of the available options, but we promise to never pressure you into buying things that you don’t need or want!
Since every window is made to order, you can be sure that all of your new windows will fit perfectly in your home! They are expertly installed within the spaces of your existing windows. There won’t be any damage to the surrounding walls—interior or exterior—so there won’t be any drywall, stucco, or siding that needs to be repaired once the window installation is complete.
Replacement Slider Windows Installed by Experts
Did you know that some of the other replacement window companies in San Diego outsource the installation of the windows they sell? This is especially true at the “big box” stores that sell residential windows. Once you place your order with them, they bring in a subcontractor for the installation.
Not at BM Windows! We only use our own team of highly trained window installers. They are experienced, professional, and they get the job done right! They are trained in the best installation methods and are knowledgeable about the replacement window products we sell. They work efficiently and are typically able to install all of your new windows in just one day!
Before our installation crew leaves your home, they will make sure you are completely satisfied with their work. They can also answer any questions you may have about the operation or maintenance of your new windows. They will clean up after themselves and discard your old windows.
BM Windows includes our own warranty on every installation. This guarantee is on top of the window manufacturer’s warranty that comes with every window we sell, and it ensures that your new windows are covered in just about any circumstance. You won’t find many other San Diego replacement window companies that offer an installation warranty in addition to the manufacturer’s warranty. You can read more about our installation warranty here.
