Its improved steadily over the years as we’ve introduced glass technologies, new materials and other energy efficiency features, but it’s still the casement window that has set the standard in the industry,” said Craig Blomker, marketing manager for Andersen. “Bringing together these new replacement features along with custom sizing and the materials needed to get the job done is just another step for us in giving our customers just what they said they wanted.”
