Orlando Casement Windows

Versatile Casement Windows for Florida Homeowners

A casement window is one that is hinged on the side and operates by a crank to open outwards. Casement windows have the ability to fit into hard-to-reach spaces, like over the kitchen sink, or in a narrow corner. Unlike double-hung windows, where only one half of the window can open, the entirety of a casement window can open fully, creating a larger opening for air flow.

The home styles across central and southern Florida are diverse, from contemporary new construction in Miami and elegant Victorian homes in Winter Park, to Mediterranean-inspired homes in West Palm Beach and charming ranch homes in Clearwater. Capable of providing excellent cross ventilation through a home, casement windows are a popular choice among Florida homeowners of all kinds.

Commonly known as: crank windows, side hinge windows, side hung windows, hinged windows

  • hurricane resistant windows Hurricane-Resistant Windows

    Florida has a history with hurricanes. Due to the state’s southern location near the tropics and the large expanse of coastline, hurricane season in Florida officially starts at the beginning of June and extends through the end of November. For this reason, Florida homeowners may wish to consider using impact glass in their replacement casement windows. Pella’s hurricane-resistant glass meets stringent building codes to offer excellent protection.

Florida Climate Recommendations

Thanks to a humid subtropical climate across most of the state, Florida experiences hot, humid summers, mild winters, and rainfall year-round. The southern portion of the state has a tropical climate, which means cities like Miami experience a steady year-round warm temperature and a more concentrated rainy season. Florida is no stranger to hurricanes. No matter what part of the state you are in, you may want to consider hurricane-resistant impact glass.

Salty Air

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 help maintain window integrity.

Low-E Protection

Low-E Protection

Keep your home comfortable — and protected from the heat — with Low-E insulating glass that will also help keep energy costs down. SunDefense® Low-E Insulating Glass with Argon1 can block 94 percent of the sun’s heat and ultraviolet rays.
