Casement windows offer many benefits, from an elegant aesthetic to convenient operation and improved ventilation in your home. Today, Renewal by Andersen® of Cape Cod, a top local window contractor shares some key factors to consider when deciding whether to invest in casement windows.
What They Are
Casement windows are large-paned windows often associated with Prairie, Mission Revival, and Cape Cod style homes. They are hinged on one side and can be swung open like doors, making them ideal for use as egress windows. When manufactured with top quality materials and properly installed by an experienced window company, they can last for decades while requiring minimal maintenance.
What They Can Do
Replacement windows from Renewal by Andersen of Cape Cod can help make any home more visually appealing and energy-efficient too. Casement windows promote natural ventilation and can help make your home feel cool and comfortable all year round. They are also useful for letting more natural light in, reducing your reliance on artificial lighting throughout your home.
What You Need to Do
Keep your casement windows in the best condition possible by staying on top of routine maintenance. Regularly clean your frames and glass panes. Pay attention to the hardware too. Fully open your casement windows so you can access both sides more easily. As with other window types, have them inspected from time to time for possible defects.
