WINDOW STYLE FOCUS: CASEMENT WINDOWS

A lot homeowners choose casement windows for windows installation in St. Charles MO. Casement windows are hinged at the side and open outward either to the left or right. Most of them are taller than they are wide, so they provide top-to-bottom ventilation. Casement window can be used alone or in pairs. Many varieties of this window type were developed over the years.

But what makes this particular window the preference of many? For one, it provides aesthetics especially suited for modern homes.

Here are other things worth knowing about casement windows:

PROS

• Energy efficiency. Casement windows are designed to promote energy efficiency. Compared with sliding windows, they have lower air leakage rates because the sash is closed by pressing against the window frame.

The casement windows that we at Renewal of Andersen® of St. Louis are made of Fibrex® and High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass. Fibrex is an exclusive composite framing material that has the strength and stability of wood and the maintenance ease of vinyl. It insulates roughly 700 times better than aluminum. Compared with your st andard dual-pane glass, High-Performance Low-E4 glass is 56% more energy-efficient in summer and 45% more efficient in winter. It also blocks 83% of UV rays.

• Maximized ventilation. Since casement windows are opened sideways, they offer great ventilation, letting in natural and air when needed.

• Airtightness. Although they let a great deal of air in when opened, casement windows are airtight when closed. This is because the window seal meets the casement, preventing air from entering.

CONS

• Safety. If you have little kids at home, make sure that your casement windows are properly shut. Children might fall off on the other side (i.e., the outside) if not supervised.

• Tendency to break. Because casement windows are composed of many parts, there is a higher risk that the small parts will break, and the windows will not function smoothly. The common problem with casement windows is that the cracks and screws are no longer able to pivot. If you choose to get casement windows, invest in high-quality ones.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
