Our French Casement Windows
This is a casement window without the center mull, which normally separates twin casement windows that have been mulled together, allowing for a wider field of vision when the windows are open. Our French casement window is engineered to look and operate like our Homestead window.

- Sash: 1¾" thick on standard sizes; 2½ stiles and top rail; 3¾ bottom rails, astragal where the two sashes meet.
- Glazing: Standard ¾" annealed clear dual-glaze with dark bronze spacer.

French Casement Windows are available in Incense Cedar, Mahogany or Vertical Grain Douglas Fir.
This particular example shows Incense Cedar with a Rubbed White finish.
Native to California, southwestern Oregon, and western Nevada, Incense Cedar is exceptionally resistant to environmental deterioration, with an innate strength that makes it split-, bow-, warp- and cup-resistant. No wonder it has been used for centuries in demanding applications such as fencing, patio decks and siding.
Incense Cedar's remarkable range of refreshing pastel colors makes it a beautiful and bold chameleon when it comes to doors as well. With so many interesting color variations, Incense Cedar allows you to achieve hues and looks unsurpassed by other species. For a rough, rustic surface, with minimal maintenance, choose our Wirebrushed texture.See All Finishes
There are multiple textures you may apply to your windows.
This particular example shows a Wirebrushed texture.
This time-honored technique brings vibrance and energy to the wood by accentuating the grain patterns. Standard with our Incense Cedar, Wirebrushing requires less maintenance than our Sanded textures. Its rough, rustic, knotty look is both charming and reminiscent of an older time.See All Textures
