People nowadays do not often choose casement windows for their new buildings because the price of products that meet modern insulation regulations is very high. The high level of manual work also results in higher prices than single casement windows if old box windows are partially or completely replaced and modernized.
While there is a wide selection of materials and quality grades for single pane windows, there is no need to hesitate between high-quality windows and cheap windows for casement windows. The frame material has a small impact on the overall price, as only wood can be used as the frame for casement windows.
The quality of a window is made up of several factors:
Type of wood of the window frame
Window frame width
Size of the window
The thickness of the window glass
Type of window glass
Guideline values for new and old casement windows
For new casement windows with good U-values, for example, the basic price per square meter of window area is estimated to be 1,000 Euros in the European region.
The price for repairing old casement windows depends to a large extent on their condition. The amount of work involved when refurbishing box windows can vary considerably.
If the new sash is customized, the exact price will depend on the size and glazing of the window.
Types of glazing
Insulating glazing window
Laminated safety glazing
Glazing is also available in hybrid form, and this version can meet several criteria at the same time. A common difficulty with older casement windows is the properties and strength of the existing outer frame on the inside of the window. Heavy double-glazed sashes cannot be hung in all cases. So the price of frame replacement may rise to the cost of a complete window replacement.
