Casement windows are incredibly popular because they are simple yet so versatile. However, that doesn’t mean you should just buy the first set of casement windows you can find. Here’s a rundown of the things you should consider before buying this popular window option.
Your choice of frame material can make or break your casement windows. Pick something flimsy, and you can expect them to give way sooner than you think. Pick something overpriced, and you may not end up getting a lot of value out of it. Our experts recommend getting Fibrex® frame windows because they have a good balance of cost, aesthetics and maintenance requirements.
Windows have to be properly sized relative to the available wall space and the room where it will be installed. Although casement windows are available in standardized sizes, it’s still better to go for a custom-fit window to make sure that every last fraction of an inch is properly fitted and free of possible gaps that can lead to air leaks as the window ages.
Does your home have a contemporary home design, or is it more traditional? Experts recommend picking a window design that matches the rest of the home, or it will negatively affect the entire building’s curb appeal. Casement windows with sleek frames or large uninterrupted panels look great on newer homes while stiled options with wood-textured frames are great for classic designs.
You can get more value out of your casement windows by adding extra features to it, including leveraging features that further improve your new windows’ energy efficiency, such as Low-E glass, multi-pane technology and gas fills. These may increase the overall cost of your new casement windows, but they do help you save more money in the long run by reducing your HVAC’s energy consumption.
