Why You Should Install Casement Windows in Your Home

Casement windows give you a wider view of the great outdoors with their large glass surface area. They can be installed in any part of your home, even in tight spaces.

In this post, your local remodeling experts from Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois discuss why you should consider installing casement windows for your home.

1. Better Ventilation

Unlike double-hung and sliding windows, which can only be opened in one side, casement windows can be fully opened. This is important if you utilize cross-ventilation for your home. 

2. Natural Lighting

The wider glass surface area of casement windows allows more natural light to enter your home. You don’t have to worry about the harmful UV rays and water spots. Replacement windows from Renewal by Andersen of Central Illinois’ High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass has an innovative coating that, when activated by the sun, reduces water spots by 99%. This enhances your outdoor view and makes cleaning a breeze.

3. Fewer Muntins

Muntins are strips of wood, metal, vinyl or fiberglass that separate glass panes within a window. Our team has eliminated bulky frames and created a sleek design to give you a better view of the outside.

4. Customizable

Casement windows come in various sizes for your living spaces. You can also customize them to match your home’s interior and exterior colors.

"I would recommend RBA of Central Illinois for QUALITY windows and doors. Compared to our old cheap, thin vinyl windows, Andersen blows them away. You can easily tell by how well the sliding doors fit and close, and how heavy duty they are. We also cannot hear the wind rushing through the house in inclement weather anymore! And the black window frames we went with are amazing to look at. Aaron, Al, Darrell, and Cory all were professional and went all out to finish the job, given the weather they had to deal with. I would definitely recommend. They were also on top of communicating with me given the weather delays, and what I could expect for them coming out. Five stars!"
