Each Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey replacement window design offers unique benefits and features for homeowners interested in upgrading their home. Whether your main goal is to control heating and cooling costs, reduce the amount of visible light transfer or block harmful UV rays, carefully choosing the right window components is important to make sure you’re happy with the final product.
The window solutions you choose depend on where you live and how you want your home to function. Casement windows offer a plethora of unique benefits.
Performance & Efficiency: Casement Windows are in a Class of Their Own
Benefit 1: Start with Built-in Features.
Casements are the most energy-efficient operable window style in the Renewal by Andersen lineup. Our multi-point locking system secures quickly with a single lever and creates a virtually weather-tight seal, blocking moisture and airflow that reduce energy efficiency.
Another benefit that casement windows provide is maximum ventilation. The simple crank style hardware lets you quickly and easily open your windows to let the fresh air wash your indoor spaces with gentle breezes on temperate, fair-weather days.
Benefit 2: Build on Performance with Glass Options
While a superior weather-tight seal increases energy-efficiency, glass options for casement windows significantly impact performance. We offer 5 basic glass solutions designed to fit myriad environments.
Option #1 Basic High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass.
This glass option is virtually crystal clear. You’ll enjoy 45% more energy efficiency during the coldest months and 56% more energy efficiency during hot, humid New Jersey summers. Plus, Low-E4® glass blocks more than four-fifths (84%) of all UV rays that can damage your carpets, drapes, artwork, upholstery and other precious furnishings.
Option #2 Patterned High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass.
Choosing patterned glass for your casement windows gives you more privacy by creating a window that obscures the view from outside your home. A patterned glass panel in a casement-style frame is perfect for placement above bathtubs, in basements, and in other areas where you don’t want “outsiders” to be able to see inside. Renewal by Andersen offers our High Performance Low-E4 Sun Glass in four patterns: Obscure, Reed, Cascade and Fern.
Option #3 High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass.
Casement windows are our most efficient ventilation-style window and Low-E4 SmartSun™ is Renewal by Andersen’s most efficient glass choice. It has the highest efficiency rating in cool and cold weather (45% more efficient) and performs exceptionally well in hot, hot, hot weather (70% more efficient). Even though this glass option blocks almost all harmful UV rays, you’ll enjoy exceptional natural light transfer. If you want to flood your indoor spaces with natural daylight, this is the choice for you.
Option #4 High-Performance™ Low-E4® Sun glass.
Sun glass has a coating designed to control how much visible light and sunshine reaches inside your home. Choosing Low-E4® Sun glass for your casement windows helps you keep your home cooler during the summer and warmer during the winter. This glass option is our highest rated glass solution for controlling solar heat gain, too.
Option #5 Tempered Glass
The final glass solution for your New Jersey home is our tempered, heat-treated glass. It is at least four times stronger than regular glass and is perfect for windows in isolated corners of your home or any place that you want a stronger glass – such as areas subject to stray baseballs or other flying projectiles.
Benefit 3: Build on Style with Colors and Accessories
Whether you choose to leave your beautiful casement window glass plain, or add one of the four standard grille patterns, you have plenty of options to customize your replacement windows. For example, installing grilles allows you to replicate historical styles or create a modern curb appeal.
With eight fashionable exterior colors and three interior wood tones – pine, oak, and maple – it is easy to choose a finish that will match or contrast your home’s décor. You can also choose white for interior and exterior frames and trim.
