These are one of the most common window types to be used in homes. Although custom measurements are possible, homeowners can purchase off-the-shelf window dimensions for the usual rough slots in their homes. Sliding windows are suitable for use in various rooms, including the kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, basement, and other areas. However, avoid sliding windows in rooms that require protection from the elements, such as air, dust, or other contaminants. For sliding windows, the standard widths available are 36, 48, 60, 72, and 84 inches. In terms of height, there are limited options with only 24, 36, 48, and 60 inches made.
