The customers were looking for better air flow into their 1952 Hickory Hills, IL home. The vinyl windows they had were not very old, maybe 10 years. They were drafty double hung and fixed windows - with very little curb appeal.

During the installation, there was a traffic accident near the house. When one of the installers asked the homeowner if they heard it, she replied that she didn't and realized how much of a difference the windows made to the sound on the street.

Changing to casements made all of the glass uniform and with an interesting curve of the windows, added the appeal the customer was hoping for.
