SoftLite casement windows are one of the most energy efficient window styles we manufacture, but that’s only one reason to consider them if you are in the market for replacement windows for your home. Certainly, it makes a difference to know that the specially designed air barriers, weather stripping, and energy-efficient glass packages will significantly reduce air filtration and improve insulation.
However, what should also be taken into consideration are the many design possibilities a set of casement windows provides, especially when combined with some of the other styles SoftLite offers. For example, imagine a beach cottage that faces the ocean. To give you the most enjoyment from that spectacular view, a SoftLite dealer can install a three-tiered window package – a horizontal row of large, dramatic casement windows sandwiched vertically between a set of elegant picture windows above and a row of outward-opening awning windows below. The interior vinyl frames and sashes could have a woodgrain finish, and the exterior frames can be manufactured in any color you choose.
If that sounds attractive, or if it gives you an idea for other window combinations such as bay windows or bow windows, keep in mind the following qualities that set SoftLite casement windows apart from the competition:

As the weather grows colder, foggy windows can become a problem in some homes. This simple phenomenon happens when an object is cooler than the air around it, causing a thin layer of water molecules to form on the surface. The windows in our homes are among the most common spots where this condensation occurs because windowpanes receive direct contact with the cold air outside and are usually the coldest surfaces in the interior of a house. While this may sound harmless, the condensation that forms causes water droplets to run down windows and walls, which can result in mold and mildew.
