Casement Windows - classic styling and modern hardware
If you’re remodeling your home or just wanting to upgrade your existing windows, there are so many choices and casement windows can be one of them. These windows are known for their hinges on the side and open by using a crank or lever located at the bottom. Thinking about your options? Here are a few reasons we like casement windows for homes:
Great Views. A casement window is a great choice for rooms that overlook the outdoors; forests, lakes, oceans, and mountains. Because there are no frames obstructing your view, you can catch a great view of the beautiful outdoors.
Insulation. Casement windows close tightly when locked and can do a great job of providing you with noise insulation from the outside world. This in and of itself is a great reason to consider a selection of casement windows into your home’s mix of windows.
Casement windows can be fully opened. The way they are designed allows you to open the window outwards and bring in fresh air. Because casement windows open in an outward direction, the flap can channel air right into your house, serving as a great ventilation system.
Very secure. Casement windows are great for light and fresh air, but they are also quite secure. The casement window design actually makes them very difficult to break into. When the window is closed, the locks hook into the window which is actually embedded in the frame. It’s nearly impossible to pry into!
Casement windows can be blended into your selection of windows; for example, on either side of a bay window is a great place for them. Another example of a great location for this style of window is the kitchen. While a traditional window can be rather difficult to open and close, especially above the sink, the casement window offers you a crank that can be reached easily.
