So what makes casement style windows different from any other window you ask? And why are they so gosh darn awesome? Casement style windows are hinged at the side and can either swing inward or outward, depending on your preference; sometimes referred to as “crank out” windows, it opens like a door. This allows amazing air flow/ventilation and creates an open environment when the weather outside is just perfect. Casement windows offer more ventilation than double-hung windows, typically have less air leakage than other window styles, and look best if they are at least slightly taller than they are wide. If you’re installing windows over a sink, countertop or appliance, a casement window with a crank can be the perfect solution
This provides a clear view to the outside. It looks like a picture window because unlike double hung or sliding windows, a casement window has no rail. Screens are placed on the inside of the window, where they’re more protected from the elements. This also allows for easy maintenance & cleaning because no realignment of sashes after cleaning is required.
Casement windows make it difficult for intruders to break into as the securing hardware is embedded in the frame. Double hung can be pried open easily with a pry bar detaching the sash lock screws from the wood. Casement windows are significantly more airtight than double hung windows. No operating window closes tighter or more securely than a casement window, allowing secure entry points to your home and family’s safety. Another safety benefit is that casement windows provide a wide, easy exit during an emergency as compared to a double hung window. No other style of window can be opened so far, so family members & pets can easily escape from the inside if need be in an emergency.
