When deciding what type of window to install in your home, you’ll need to consider what characteristics you want windows to add to your home. If you want to add more light to your home and have easier access to the outdoor air inside your home, casement windows may be right for you.
At Opal Enterprises, we help you find the casement windows right for your home. We’ll help you throughout the casement windows installation process, from deciding which color or material to install to following up after we’ve installed your windows.
Advantages of Casement Windows
When you schedule a casement windows installation, you’re a step closer to upgrading your home and, in turn, increasing your home’s value with the many advantages this type of window provides. One of the biggest advantages of casement windows is their ability to let the fresh air from outside into your home.
Casement windows’ design allows you to open the window as much as you want or as little as you want. Because of this, when you open the window enough, air from your home goes out the window, and fresh air from outside can flow in. Casement windows are subject to a specific type of pressure that allow air to be filtered naturally.
Another advantage of casement windows is the high level of security they provide. The only way to open a casement window is to turn the crank because, from the outside, there’s no way to get in besides breaking the glass. But even if someone does break the glass, they still won’t be able to fully open the window without turning the crank, which is difficult from the outside.
How Often You Should Replace Your Windows
According to Real Homes, the average time you should replace your windows is every 20 years. However, in special cases, the windows your home came with may have been installed incorrectly or poorly, so they may require a replacement sooner than the average time frame.
Various signs can notify you that you need to replace your windows. To find out if you should order a casement window installation, look for the following symptoms:
- Jammed or stuck windows
- Cracked, damaged, or moldy windows
- Cold drafts of air
- Higher than usual energy bills
- Noise from outside easily enters your home
If your current windows have any of these symptoms, it’s time to replace them. However, we understand getting new windows may be a stressful process, so our team of casement windows installation contractors is here to help you through the process.
We’ll Help You Choose the Right Material for Your Casement Windows
When getting new casement windows, you’ll have a wide range of options of materials to choose from. For example, we can install windows with the following materials:
A casement window in a vinyl material is known for its durability throughout severe weather and its energy efficiency. Vinyl’s durability can withstand the severe weather conditions Illinois frequently experiences. Also, our vinyl material is air-tight, so you won’t have to worry about your HVAC bill increasing when cold weather comes.
If you choose vinyl windows for your home, you won’t have to worry about spending hours cleaning them and making sure they don’t get damaged. Instead, a quick wipe with cleaning spray will do the trick.
A wood-lined casement window adds a classic touch and accentuates your home, regardless of the color of your walls. However, it’s important to know that wood windows require more maintenance than any other material we offer. Wood windows are more likely to absorb moisture which could lead to mold or even wood rot.
But you can be confident that we’ll seal your windows so that you don’t have to worry about this happening in the near future. Wood windows bring the outdoors in and give your home a rustic feel.
If you want a wood framed casement window but don’t want the hassle of maintaining them, composite is the material for you. Composite windows are typically made with resin and fiberglass but look like natural wood.
Composite windows shine and can add a sparkle to your home, making it look clean and modern. In addition, you don’t have to worry about mold or pests getting into the wood because of the combination of thermoplastic polymer blends and wood fiber balance to create a unique material.
The last material we offer at Opal Enterprises for casement windows installation is fiberglass. Fiberglass is a strong material and doesn’t require much maintenance. In addition, their sleek design will blend with your home and stand out in a darker-colored room.
If you’re unsure what material you should choose, our team of casement window installers can help you decide which material. We’re passionate about exterior design and look forward to helping you.
