Planning a window replacement project, but not sure what style of windows to choose? Casement windows may be less common than double-hung windows, but they offer numerous benefits that make them worth considering. Today, Renewal by Andersen® of Portland provides an overview of this practical and versatile window and explains why it might just be the right style for your needs.

Unique Operation

Unlike most window styles that slide open either vertically or horizontally, casement windows swing open like a door via the use of a crank. This handy operation allows you to control how much ventilation you want in the room by angling the window opening to catch the breeze.

Improved Function

Old, worn down casement windows are hard to operate. Fortunately, manufacturers have corrected problems with older casement window designs, and casement window replacement products today when purchased from a reputable contractor offer smooth, effortless operation.

Better Ventilation

Because they swing open like a door, a casement window replacement gives you total control over ventilation. Casement windows are great for catching side breezes, which other window styles wouldn’t be able to take advantage of. 

Beautiful Views

Casement windows feature expansive glass panes, allowing you to frame a panoramic view of the outdoors. A high-quality casement window can function as a stunning focal point in your home.
