Window FAQs

When Do I Use Casement Windows

Casement windows are operated by opening them outward using a crank. With that in mind, casement windows are an ideal addition if you have a lot of space on your home’s exterior. We do not recommend installing casement windows that are close to a garage area or a space that has high foot traffic as this will disrupt their walking path. A few examples of these spaces include decks, balconies or your front porch. Casement windows are also a great option if you’re looking to improve your home’s energy efficiency since they allow more natural light in, as well as ventilation. Even more so than double hung windows.

Are they Safe?

Casement windows are one of your safest picks since they have an airtight seal and a multi-point locking system that serves as a deterrent against home intruders. It also serves as a great emergency window, allowing you to exit your home easily in case of an emergency. For instance, they’re used in basements where egress space is limited.

Are they Low Maintenance?

Andersen®  casement windows are low maintenance since they’re very easy to clean. They’re also available in a variety of styles, such as vinyl that looks brand new even across the years. In fact, they can be simply cleaned by applying warm, soapy water on them and wiping them off clean. It can also be cleaned from the inside by cranking your window open and removing the window screen.

"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!!"
