New windows can make your home more inviting. More light and more fresh air into your home can help brighten your house, making casement windows an ideal choice. A casement window, also referred to as a crank-out window, has a single sash that opens outward on a vertical axis by rotating a crank that is attached to the sash with heavy duty hinges. The hinges can open the sash to a full 90 degrees allowing for easy cleaning from inside the home. A multipoint locking system closes the unit tightly from a single lever. The casement is the most energy efficient of all operable window styles. Casements may be joined together into double, triple or quadruple units.
An awning window has a single sash that opens outward on a horizontal axis. The hardware and construction are very similar to the casement window line. These windows make for a great new window in your home. Spring and Summer are the best times to have windows installed. While casement windows swing open horizontally, awning windows swing out vertically. Depending on which direction the sun points towards your home, can make a different in how much sunlight will enter your home.
Where Should I Consider Installing a Casement Window?
If you already have a bow or bay window in your home, casement windows can easily replace them with no problem. Hard-to-reach areas like over a kitchen sink or in a projecting window are great locations to add a new window like a casement window. The single crank operator can open and close the window with ease. The direction your home faces can make a difference in how much sunlight will enter your home.
