Casement windows aren’t the most popular windows we create but people who have them really love them. We thought it might be helpful to provide some information about them for you so you can see if they are right for your home.
What are Casement Windows?
Casement windows are windows that are hung to the frame at one side by hinges and open out like a door. They can be hung as a single window that opens out to one side or as a double window that opens out to both sides.
First of all, casement windows offer great ventilation. They can be opened to the full width of the window. They can also be opened at an angle to catch side breezes. These windows also provide great exit potential in case of emergencies. They can open all the way out like a door. Meanwhile, they can be locked securely to prevent break-ins.
Our casement windows are extremely energy-efficient because of how we build them and the materials we use. We build to precise measurements so there isn’t any room for pests or air to move in or out. We make the frames out of exterior grade, solid timber and our panes out of custom weather-proof glass. The glass is manufactured here in WA. Both the timber and the glass are extremely efficient insulators.
Casement windows are also quite easy to wash because you can open them and wash them from the side they open into. Our casement windows are expertly crafted and lend a modern, prosperous aesthetic to any home or business. They are also incredibly easy to crank open.
The main disadvantage of casement windows is that you need room for them to open. Most people choose to have them open outward for security and safety reasons, so you need clearance along the outside of your house. Other than that, it’s simply a matter of whether or not the function and the look are right for you.
