Double-Hung vs. Casement: Choosing the Right Windows

Choosing the right kind of windows used to be the job of a builder or designer, but with our high-quality windows installation services, you can make that decision yourself. However, this choice can be a little overwhelming if you don’t know where to begin.

Double-Hung vs. Casement

In this short article, we’ll explore all the features and benefits of two of the most common types, to help you find the one that fits your home’s needs and aesthetic.

Double-Hung Windows

You can find double hung windows on many traditional American homes. In fact, they’re easily the most popular of all types of windows. Renewal by Andersen® of Atlanta’s double-hung windows feature our exclusive Fibrex® frame and High-Performance™ Low-E® glass, giving homes plenty of light while maintaining energy efficiency and thermal resistance. In addition, window installation is a breeze, as we have Certified Master Installers who will provide you with top-notch quality every time, all the time.

Casement Windows

On the other hand, casement windows are great when it comes to allowing unobstructed views of the great outdoors. Renewal by Andersen casement windows are perfect to provide the living room (or any space) with the most natural light, while maintaining heating or cooling indoors.

Like their double-hung counterparts, our casement windows are framed with our exclusive Fibrex material that’s tougher than wood and vinyl. The glass is High-Performance™ Low-E®, which helps lower energy costs for your home.

The Verdict

Choosing between double-hung and casement windows depends largely on where you place them. For kitchens and basements, casement windows make the perfect candidate, while double-hung windows remain unbeaten as the choice for living rooms and bedrooms.

In the end, they’re your windows, so ask us if they could work in whatever room you want them. Chances are, as long as your house has wall openings already, we can make the windows work. Our experts at Renewal by Andersen of Atlanta can help you find the right solution for all your window needs. Give us a call today at (888) 908-3332 and get a free estimate and in-home consultation.
