Casement windows can be set up to open either to the left or the right. It’s ability to open up almost a full 90-degrees makes it a great choice for many rooms in your home.

CTEWS redid the siding, replaced rotten plywood, rotten decking, all the trim, new windows & painted everything. All for a very fair price! Best of all though, was the service.

Great communication and his guys went above and beyond in purchasing new wood trim (which they painted) to frame around the window. They have my appreciation and strong recommendation.

Paul Hickernell

Great overall service and quality windows, highly recommend. This is an owner/operator business, so you’re not dealing with a whole bunch of corporate nonsense.
