Pros and cons of Marvin casement windows

Pros of Marvin casement windows

Ventilation: Casement windows are the perfect option for kitchens or bathrooms, providing plenty of ventilation when opened. When closed, casement windows prevent air infiltration quite well, shielding you from a cool draft or pesky pollen.

Energy-efficiency: When your casement windows are closed, they are considered one of the most energy-efficient windows available. Casement window sashes are moveable and can fasten securely to the weather-stripping, allowing for a tight seal when you’re blasting the air conditioning or cranking the heat.

Easy to wash: Since Marvin casement windows open outward instead of up, they are incredibly easy to clean. Casement windows offer enough space for you to reach outward and clean both sides of the window with ease.

Warranty: Marvin offers a warranty of up to 20 years on their windows, depending on the type of window you choose.

Cons of Marvin casement windows

Expensive: Marvin casement windows can be more expensive than your typical window at $400 to $1,100 a window. Since casement windows are heavier than most with weight added by their glazed sashes, the hardware and structure need to be top-quality to remain structurally sound.

Size limitations: Unfortunately, there are very few casement windows that are offered in larger sizes. The maximum size available for Marvin windows is 8.5 feet, which means minimal options are available for larger, more expansive windows.

When it comes time for a window replacement, it’s important to choose windows that will enhance your home. If you’re interested in windows that offer bright, natural light, easy cleaning, energy efficiency, and high quality, Marvin casement windows are the perfect addition to your home.
