Virginia Casement Windows

Casement Windows are a Modern Touch for Historic Homes

Historic homes abound in the state of Virginia, which is appropriate for a place known as the birthplace of what would become the United States. Homeowners can opt to preserve the original look and feel of these homes or upgrade them for the 21st century. Casement windows can do both, preserving the historical details of the home while updating the aesthetic.

Hinged at the sides, casement windows swing outwards and open up your home to the fresh air for maximum ventilation, all with the turn of a handle. Whether you are looking to enhance the air flow of your home or install windows in areas that are hard to reach, casement windows can contribute elegant design and unmatched function to your home, both inside and out.

Virginia Climate Recommendations


Although the state is classified as a humid subtropical climate, most Virginians will describe the weather as not too hot and not too cold. They certainly experience the full breadth of all four seasons, from the warm air of spring and heat and humidity of the summer to the chill of the fall and cold and dry winters. Rainfall is frequent for the area, with the rare bout of severe wind and rain from living near the coastline, where they can feel residual effects from tropical storms.

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.

Diverse Climate

Be prepared for cold winters and humid summers with Pella® Impervia®. This strong fiberglass, available for both windows and patio doors, is durable enough to help withstand the elements that all four seasons can bring.

Extreme weather

Rainy Weather

With persistent clouds and drizzle nearly all year round, consider investing in moisture-resistant window materials, such as fiberglass or vinyl.
