A casement window is a great choice for homes in the Florida area. It offers excellent ventilation, and its angled design allows for improved lighting. It is also durable and affordable.
On average, casement windows cost $500 to $1,000 for materials and installation. However, this figure can vary greatly depending on various factors.
They are easy to operate
Unlike double-hung windows that slide open along tracks, casement windows swing outward on hinges to the left or right with a simple crank of a handle. They allow for full top to bottom ventilation and are perfect for hard-to-reach areas like over the kitchen sink or bathtub. They also have screens on the interior, preventing them from interfering with the window’s operation and allowing for easy cleaning.
Because they only have one sash, casement windows offer less visual obstruction than other operable window styles. This makes them perfect for installation in hard-to-reach spaces, such as those above the kitchen sink or in a narrow corner. They also provide refreshing ventilation that is easy to direct and control. Visit our showroom today to see the power of casement windows for yourself.

They are easy to clean
Unlike single and double hung windows that slide open on a track, casement windows are hinged on the side and crank open by hand. This makes them easy to operate and fits well in areas where it is difficult to reach the top sash, such as above kitchen sinks. They also allow for plenty of airflow and are among the most energy efficient operable window styles available.
Compared to their cousins, the awning and picture window, casement windows have the least visual obstructions of any operable window style. The maximized glass area creates a clean, clutter-free view and architectural statement for your home.
Designed for outdoor living, our awning and picture windows open by swinging out to the left or right like French doors. They’re great for areas where it’s hard to reach the sash of a double hung or single hung window, such as above the kitchen sink or in a narrow corner. They’re also a good option for bathrooms or bedrooms where ventilation is important.
They are easy to maintain
If you’re looking for a window style that doesn’t require a meeting rail like slider and sash windows, then casement windows are a good option. These hinged windows open with a simple crank of a handle, and they can be opened to any direction.
They also offer unobstructed views and provide the most ventilation of any window style. They can be used alone or paired with other window styles to create stunning configurations.
They are easy to open and operate, making them an excellent choice for hard-to-reach areas, such as above a kitchen sink. They also can be opened wide to allow for a maximum amount of air flow. Moreover, they come with locking mechanisms that add security and safety to your home. They are highly energy efficient and can save you hundreds of dollars a year in energy costs. They are also a great choice for coastal environments. They are designed to withstand extreme weather conditions.
They are affordable
Casement windows are easy to open using a crank, making them popular in areas where it may be difficult to operate single or double-hung windows. They can also be opened wide to let in fresh air and are available in various sizes to suit every home style. In addition, you can install them in combination with other window types to create a striking architectural look.
Costs for casement windows vary by region, window size, and frame material. You can reduce your costs by choosing a window with less glazing or adding a more energy-efficient model. However, you should consider that a new window will still be more expensive than a single-pane window, and it will take longer to heat or cool your home.
For the best value, choose a composite or fiberglass frame from a top manufacturer like Renewal by Andersen. These frames are durable and lightweight, and offer superior energy efficiency in cold climates.
