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.

"Our installation team was top notch. While they said they were sending a "team"to install 21 windows it was only two people. But I see why, the process was seamless and everything was done correctly and consistently with the leadership of Clayton. We had a tiny problem with one window within a week of installation and their response time was prompt to remedy the situation. Our windows are beautiful. Our home is warm and cozy."

"Love the windows and patio door. We want to finish the whole house when we can financially. We give Anderson and employees, especially the sales rep Mike that came to our house, the highest rating. Mike was knowledgeable and courteous. Also not high pressure."
