The Cape Cod style is distinctively American. It reminds us of how 18th-century New England houses managed to stay simple and modest while contending with the harsh climate.
Like other traditional houses in the United States, Capes favor certain window designs. Today, Renewal by Andersen® of Atlanta talks about the only units you should consider when tackling a Cape Cod windows installation.
Capes are synonymous with sash windows consisting of panels of different heights. Generally, these houses feature cottage-style double hung units where the top sash is longer than the bottom. Quintessential Cape Cod windows use a 9-over-6 grille pattern, which is similar to that of Colonial houses.
Renewal by Andersen of Atlanta offers numerous variations of double-hung windows. If you want units with longer bottom sashes to give your Cape Cod house a refreshing interpretation, we can pull it off.
Modern iterations of Cape Cod houses utilize casement window systems to meet the latest building codes. Crank units provide the clearest net free opening of all operating windows, making them the best glass fixtures to satisfy fire egress codes.
You do not have to worry about the aesthetics of your Cape Cod cottage with casement windows. We can make them look like classic sash units using a simulated double-hung grille pattern. It is our solution to appease both traditionalists and building inspectors.
If your Cape Cod has a transom window over an exterior door, we can replace it with a high-performance fixed glass unit. We can apply crisscross grilles to mimic the appearance of your other windows and to create a cohesive look.
