When Lorraine requested a free estimate from our experts, her biggest priority was window replacement in her 1990’s era Hennepin County home. Several lacked energy efficiency and were at risk for air and water infiltration. Familiar with our weekly call-in radio show on WCCO 830 AM, she knew our company has an exemplary reputation for custom window replacement and offers reliable, long-lasting windows. In total, our craftsmen installed nine new SeasonGuard windows in Lorraine’s home. The main style of window utilized was casement. Here’s why this proved to be the ideal combination.
Casement Windows: This window configuration features sashes with one or more hinges on the side. Casement windows can be cleaned with ease because they open outwards rather than up and down. Many of the windows were being installed in Lorraine’s basement, an area that can easily become musty. She appreciated that their overall design promoted the circulation of fresh air throughout her home. Another appealing aspect about Lorraine’s new casement windows is they are one of the most energy efficient styles available. This is largely because the sash is movable and can adhere to the weather-stripping when locked. Casement windows also feature a sloping exterior layout. This is beneficial because it promotes water movement, rather than pooling outside the sill.
