Gliding Windows

Effortless Operation, Even in Tight Spaces

If you need a window that offers you fantastic views but can still be opened effortlessly in tight spaces, gliding windows are for you. At C&L Ward, we’ve been working with homeowners throughout the Midwest for nearly 50 years to make their window dreams a reality. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Andersen, the countries largest window and door manufacturer. Our gliding windows are available in dozens of combinations so you can find the perfect solution for your home.

Gliding windows are designed to be operated effortlessly. They glide along a track so that the sashes stand behind each other when opened. This means that they stay flush with the wall and have a full, top-to-bottom opening. These features make gliding windows a great choice for rooms that face patios, porches, and walkways. And, since they’re designed by Andersen®, our gliding windows durable enough to last for years, with industry-leading warranties to back them up.

Make Our Gliding Windows Work for You

When you work with C&L Ward, you can customize many features of your new gliding windows, including:

  • Frame type — Your gliding window frame can be made from a number of materials, all designed to have a fantastic appearance, durability, and energy efficiency. You can even have your new windows made out of Andersen’s own Fibrex® composite — one of the strongest, most efficient materials on the market.
  • Hardware selection — Make your new window fit the rest of your home perfectly with a number of hardware options.
  • Glazing options — Maximize your window’s energy efficiency with multi-paned, gas-filled glass. You can also select between a number of low-e coatings to minimize UV rays and increase your window’s thermal performance.

Whatever you choose, you can count on C&L Ward to make your window installation go smoothly. We’ve got years of experience to get your window replacement done quickly and correctly.

“I would recognize Nicole for her exceptional service. She put up with a lot of my calls, my complains. She was always so professional. She not only would talk to me, she would send my emails up the chain of command. I think her follow through was really good.”

Brands we trust
Breast Cancer Awareness

Each year in October, our team participates in the Real Men Wear Pink campaign, led by the American Cancer Society. Employees who participate in this program wear pink and obtain pledges throughout October to raise money for this cause. Additionally, we raise money for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Our fundraising events toward this cause include themed T-shirt sales, in-office bake sales, a Penny Wars competition, 50/50 raffles, and pizza lunches.

Stuff the Truck

Our Stuff the Truck event is another way we give back to the community. The goal of this program is to fill one or more C&L Ward trucks with donation items. These may include canned goods and other non-perishable food, toiletries, warm clothing, blankets, and more. Monetary donations are also accepted, as we collect donations from our employees and other members of the community. Everything collected in the Stuff the Truck event is provided to a local non-profit dedicated to helping community members in need.

Shingles for Shelter

Shingles for Shelter is a C&L Ward program that gives back to the community. Each holiday season around November, we offer a free installed asphalt roof to a homeowner in need. We partner with organizations like ABC Supply Co, Inc. and Metro Sanitation to source the shingles and supply the dumpster to make this project happen. To select a Shingles for Shelter giveaway recipient, we consider things like current roof condition, circumstances, and presentation quality. In short, we offer homeowners a fresh start.

Owens Corning Roof Deployment

Owens Corning and Platinum Preferred Contractors want to give something back to the troops that bravely serve our country, and the families who support them. The Roof Deployment Project is our way of building for the future together.
