Corner Windows Highlight this Casement Window Replacement

Outdated mid century modern windows get a 21st century upgrade

Originally built in 1949, Shelia Albin’s Springfield, OH home showcases some sleek examples of popular 1940s and 50s home design. While the brick exterior, smooth chimney, and tone wall have held up over the years, the old mid century modern windows had not. From the entryway picture window to the unique corner windows that anchor the dining area, the Improveit team had fun working on this one-of-a-kind design.  

Shelia reached out to Improveit in January of 2022, immediately after purchasing her home. During that initial conversation, she told our team that her existing aluminum, single-pane windows were original to the home and she was experiencing uncomfortable drafts. It was no surprise to our team that Sheila had put plastic over some of the draftiest windows to keep the cold Ohio winter outside where it belonged.  

Double Casement Windows Become Corner Windows

Meeting with a design consultant helped Sheila determine that a casement window replacement, as well as a couple of picture windows, would be the best option to fit both the style of her home and the functionality she needed. In addition to a picture window by the front door, Sheila chose a second picture window flanked by casement windows for the front of the home, while double casement windows were selected for the corner windows in the dining room.  

Several of the home’s old casements featured aluminum framing across the glass pane, giving the effect of a window grid. For her new design, Shelia chose gridless windows – a decision the Improveit team loves! Mid century modern windows were designed and oriented to create expansive views that let in a lot of light. Gridless windows accomplish just that, and with her home situated at the top of a small hill, Sheila is able to see her property clearly without grids interrupting the view.


What are Double Casement Windows?

Sometimes called French casements, double casement windows refer to a pair of single casement windows joined together into one unit. Each casement cranks open from the center of the unit, giving the effect of French doors in a window installation. A mullion down the center of the window allows each casement to seal tightly and lock properly into place. 

In Sheila’s home, two double casement windows came together for the home’s unique corner windows, giving a wide view from her dining room. The Improveit installation team wrapped framing at the corner of the house in white for a finished look to match the windows. Another double casement was installed over the kitchen sink, which is an application our team always recommends. Standard double-hung windows require more leverage to open, which can be difficult when leaning over a kitchen sink or countertop. The crank operation of a casement window is much easier in this type of space.  

With this casement window replacement, Sheila’s home now has a much-needed update to its mid century modern windows. And with Improveit’s lifetime warranty, she can rest assured that Improveit will be on-hand to address any questions over the years for this unique home.
