Are casement windows cheaper than slider sash windows?
While casement and slider sash windows have different applications, they each have unique values and prices. Slider windows operate by sliding the sash from side to side, providing maximum ventilation and an unobstructed view. Casement windows are suited for tall openings and feature a compression seal that saves energy and offers better security than slider windows. The difference in price for both window options is reflected in performance. If you want the most efficient window with a higher Energy Star rating, go for casement windows. If you want a cheaper option, slider sash windows work just fine.
