Friday, February 27th, 2015

Casement windows can be found in many homes in Georgia. They feature a simple design and are ultra-convenient when installed in certain spaces, such as above kitchen sinks. These windows are equipped with a single sash hinge situated on the side and open vertically via a crank-operated handle.

Changing from Double Hung to Casement Style Windows

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

If you travel around the state of Georgia, there is one common window type and style that you will find on most of the homes. Everyone seems to have double hung style windows with grids (also called dividers, muntins). Why is this? Because this is what we’ve always had. Well, there’s good news for those who want to improve upon the old and not always go with the status quo.

It’s true; most people still replace their windows with the same style that is currently in their home. However, there are many more options available when it comes to replacement windows. A couple of years ago, I replaced all the double hung windows in my home with casement style windows. I also know of four other window business owners who did the same. It was a decision that I couldn’t be happier with. So what do we know that the average window buyer may not…

Unlike double hung windows that lift up and down vertically, casement windows operate outward by cranking a handle. The newer casement style windows have many advantages over the older models like new sleek folding handles and even a feature that allows the windows to be cleaned from the inside. Casement windows can be made to open ventilating to the left or right depending on your preference and/or your home’s orientation. Casement windows are also available with most of the same aesthetic options as double hung style windows, like the grids in between or bonded on the glass.

Casement style windows also have some advantages over the traditional double hung windows, such as expansive open views with no horizontal obstruction. Casement windows are a perfect fit for kitchen applications where it’s difficult to reach over a sink to open. They can usually be mixed seamlessly with double hung style windows because, in the closed position, they look like most any other fixed window. One of the biggest advantages to casement windows is they are some of the most energy efficient windows available. Casement windows seal up tighter than double hung windows, providing superior protection against the elements.

Most window manufacturers make casement style windows and they are available in a variety of different frame materials. North Georgia Replacement Windows recommends casement windows that are made from maintenance free materials such as new PVC resin vinyl, composite milled PVC, and wood clad options. We also offer plenty of premium brands of casement windows like Peachtree, Pella, Vytex, Alside and more. The cost of casement windows are only about 10% more than the cost of double hungs (depending on the brand), therefore they are also a great value.

If it fits your style, home architecture and budget, consider a casement style window over a traditional double hung on your next window replacement project. You may be surprised at the beautiful and energy efficient transformation that casement windows can provide for your home.
