These are the windows that can be secured to open from the inside or from the outside just by the choice of where to place the hinges (without loss of security to the homeowner). The design of a casement window allows for the connection to be vertically fixed to the window frame. This unique format is popular throughout the world, allowing for the maximum view or shared space with the out of doors. This means that a casement window, quite different from all the other makes, has no blockages in the center of the frame. There is no hindrance to the panels or to the sashes, thereby providing the most linear run of undivided panes possible. You may have heard casement windows referred to as crank or windup windows. These windows have a handy little crank or a handle twist that allows for a generous opening to the outside. The majority of casement windows are mounted so as to open to the exterior, but with the adjustment to the hinges, you can elect to have them roll to the inside instead. The customer has the choice and the adjustment can be made by our installers when so requested.

Some homeowners prefer the casement windows because there is no counterbalance to the crank as compared to the raised windows. Because the twist handle or crank is used, the glass pane inserted can be of a much heavier composition (and some decorative or cut glass can really be just the peculiar addition you are looking forward to having). There is no unique slide or run required to push or lift like is true with other windows, so even the slightest action is adequate to open or close the windows. Have you ever wondered what to call those strips of metal or wood or fiberglass that separate the panes of a window? They are called muntins, and casement windows do not have muntins. That’s one of the enjoyments of casement windows, the absence of these visual obstructions. The unobstructed view through casement windows is a crowning feature. However, if there is any reason why you would care to have muntins in your casement windows, it can be arranged. Another undeniable advantage with casement windows is their peculiar ability to catch the slightest breeze if placed appropriately throughout the home. A significant decrease in utility bills can be the result of your wise choice of these unique windows. Given the extended vertical mount of casement windows, they can deliver a breeze when most other windows simply cannot gather it.

Casement windows give you the best panoramic view from your living space because they require fewer muntins or none at all, depending on your preference. Muntins are the dividers between two sashes or panels of the windows which allow the window to close properly, but in the case of this particular type of windows, you can completely eliminate them since the casement panels can lock each other. Also, if your home is designed at an acute angle, casement windows will help you catch the breeze which is almost impossible with any other type of window. This is just another great advantage to having these types of windows installed with us! It is not unusual for customers to select casement windows for the sheer security found in their format and design. Casement windows cannot be penetrated from the outside, having their locks inset to the very frame of the window on the inside. This added feature of safety and protection is a frequently quoted reason for customers to replace their old siding windows or lifting windows with casement windows.
