How do your casement windows help residential remodelers?
Our vinyl, fiberglass or wood with aluminum-clad wood casements offer unlimited shapes, sizes, grille patterns and exterior trim colors to suit any home style. Pella vinyl or fiberglass casements deliver long-lasting value and popular options like grille patterns and hardware finishes. Our wood with aluminum-clad casements are popular for their stylish designs and custom options. The Pella 450 Series offers exceptional value, performance and design options. Pella Designer Series, our most energy-efficient wood windows, offers the innovative snap-in between-the-glass blinds, shades and grilles that are sealed between three panes of glass for protection from dust and damage. The cordless design is safer for children and pets. Pella Architect Series satisfies discriminating tastes that appreciate exquisite millwork detailing. Available in eight wood types, they offer custom-crafted views, energy efficiency and long-lasting beauty.
What’s the next advancement in the market?
The marketplace will continue to emphasize energy-efficient solutions for casement windows, as well as all windows and doors. Expect designs to continually evolve and focus on glass technologies that will help manage the effects of the outside environment to maintain a comfortable temperature indoors. We forecast that vintage products will also be big in 2014. Pella’s Architect Series specialty product line offers many vintage window styles, like push-out or French casement windows. In terms of window function, expect foldaway handles to become standard hardware on windows as consumer tastes continue to trend toward simplicity and sleek designs. Foldaway handles hug the windowsill, so they don’t get in the way of window treatments.
