Designed to open on a horizontal axis, casement windows operate closely to awning windows and are great for rooms that need a lot of ventilation. You can also add a screen for extra security and ease of cleaning.
Wood and vinyl are the most popular frame materials for new casement windows. They offer a variety of benefits at budget friendly prices.
Easy to Operate
Unlike pictures and bay windows, which require that you are next to the window to get leverage for lifting and closing, casement windows have a turn-around handle that allows you to open them from any location in your home. This makes them perfect for hard-to-reach areas such as over sinks or bathtubs.
They also provide a tighter seal than other window types making them very energy efficient. Because they don’t swing outward like a door they create a stronger weather tight bond with the frame and sash to help reduce air leakage.
Similar to awning windows, casement windows can be opened perpendicularly which makes them ideal for basement bedrooms where egress windows are required to meet fire codes. This feature also allows for easy cleaning, allowing you to reach the inside of your home from any direction. This is important because over time, if your windows are not cleaned properly they can start to deteriorate and cause problems in your home.
Easy to Clean
Unlike double-hung windows, which require you to be right next to them in order to leverage the sash for open and close, casement and awning windows have a simple crank handle that makes it easy to open and close them. This allows them to fit well in hard-to-reach areas, such as above kitchen sinks and toilets, as well as offer a wide range of ventilation options.
As with any type of window, they should be regularly cleaned and lubricated. The arm-hinge and crank can be subjected to a lot of stress over time, so it’s worth considering replacement windows that have been designed with stronger hinges and mechanisms that are less likely to fail as the years pass by.
Easy to Install
A window installation project requires a lot of decision making when choosing materials and styles. You’ll also have to consider budget and timing, as well as the type of windows that will work best in your home. There are several window types available, including bay and bow windows, which offer both aesthetic value and increased ventilation. These are a great option for homeowners looking to add architectural interest to their Alabama home.
Hinged at the top, awning windows are an excellent option for rainy climates. They offer better ventilation than a traditional fixed window without compromising water resistance. This is an ideal choice for basement remodels or any room where you’d like a view and natural light.
Bay and bow windows provide a spacious look while providing natural light and stunning views. They’re also a great option for homes that want to reduce energy costs, as they help to retain heat during the winter.
Using the right window design can add both beauty and energy efficiency to your home. This is because efficient windows prevent air from escaping your home and make it easier for your HVAC system to keep your indoor temperature at an optimal level year round.
