Boston Casement Windows

Versatile Casement Windows Suit a Range of Boston Home Styles

Founded in 1630, it should come as no surprise that Boston and its surrounding suburbs like Brookline, Cambridge, Concord and Weston are brimming with historic homes built in a variety of traditional architectural styles. Whether it’s a classic Colonial, ornate Victorian or charming Cape Cod, Boston-area homes need an adaptable window style that balances an authentic, historic look with modern performance.

Casement windows are the ideal choice. This timeless style offers unobstructed panes of glass and unmatched flexibility. With the turn of a crank, the whole window panel can open up from the side to let a pleasant New England breeze into your home. They work well with others, too, whether it’s in a group of casement windows, flanking a picture window or used in a bay window.

Also commonly known as: crank windows, side hung windows, hinged windows, crank out windows, crank open windows

Recommended Customizations*

With traditional architecture so prevalent in and around Beantown, you’ll want your windows to help maintain that historic integrity. Casement windows, with their unobstructed glass panes, lean more modern in look, but that’s where features like grilles and hardware can help. Consider grille patterns that create the look of individual window panes, as this is a trademark of historic homes. Hardware in timeless finishes like brass can further enhance the traditional look of your casement windows, while sleek hardware in a matte black finish would add a more contemporary twist.

Boston Climate Recommendations

Boston experiences four distinct seasons. Summers here tend to be warm and humid, while winters bring cold temps and, often, heavy snowfall. Spring and fall months in the region tend to be breezy and mild. Thanks to its coastal location on the Massachusetts Bay, Boston is prone to nor’easters, which can bring ample precipitation. Casement windows built with durable materials and energy-efficient features are recommended to maintain comfort within homes.

Salty Air

In coastal climates close to water, your windows are more vulnerable to corrosion from the salt in the air. The closer your home is to the water, the more susceptible you are to the effects. Consider fiberglass to maintain window integrity.

Low-E Protection

Low-E Protection

Keep warm in the winter by helping to reduce the heat loss from your home. Windows with Low-E glass coating may help keep your home insulated, blocking out the cold and helping keep the heat in.

Durable Material Icon

Durable Materials

Frequent storms during the winter bring bitter cold and frozen precipitation. Wood with exterior aluminum cladding is ideal for withstanding the elements.

Frequently Asked Questions

  •   I need new windows. Where do I start?
  •   Why should I choose energy-efficient windows?
    • Choosing energy efficient windows is one of the most important considerations to realize a good return on investment for a window replacement. But there are a lot of factors, including proper installation, window material, and glass type that will eventually determine how much improved thermal performance and comfort you’ll see in your home. Learn more.

  •   How can I clean the exterior of my casement windows?
    • Casement windows open wide enough that you clean the exterior glass from the inside of your home. Open the sash and turn the crank until your window is fully opened. From here, you will be able to reach through the opening and access the exterior glass. 

  •   What can I expect during the window replacement and installation process?
    • When it is time to replace your windows, start by scheduling an in-home appointment with our Pella team. During that visit, we will complete an analysis and determine the best product for your home and an installation method. Pella Branch will then provide a sample window, and the homeowner can choose colors, finishes, and the style of their new products. Additionally, all of the windows will be measured, and an estimate will be prepared and given to the homeowner at that time.
