    What Paul said. Sliding windows are mostly used because they are cheap. To me, casements are all around a better window than sliding windows. My current house had sliding windows that were rotten...

    A decent sized office building was built in Minneapolis out of wood about five or six years ago. Nowhere near 20 stories though. It seems like this type of construction is better for the...
