Casement windows are attached to their frame by one or more hinges and are hinged at the side. This type of window allows for full ventilation from top to bottom of the window opening, while the sash opens horizontally opposite the hinge, allowing for better air flow. Andersen offers many different options for casement windows. One of their best-selling and contemporary styling windows is their E-series casement window. Durable and time-tested, it’s made from wood protected by an tough, extruded aluminum exterior. Compare features and options of casement windows across Andersen series here.
Gliding windows slide open horizontally from one side, providing easy access to fresh air. Because the sash does not open outward, these windows are an excellent choice for rooms that face walkways, porches or decks. Andersen also offers double slider windows, which are great for providing air circulation, particularly if there is only enough space for one window in the room. Check out our best-selling gliding window, which is made out of wood protected by vinyl or aluminum exterior and allowing both sash to glide horizontally for maximum ventilation.
Picture windows are stationary windows designed to be used alone to maximize a view. Since these windows do not open, it makes them more energy efficient and allows for larger sizes compared to windows that vent. If desired, picture windows can be combined with venting windows to create larger combinations. Andersen has a great selection of picture windows that can open up and liven up your living space, allowing light and views into your home.
