Casement Windows

Looking for a casement window replacement? You’re in the right place. Designed for great ventilation, this type of window swings and opens outward. Doing so creates a large entryway instead of only opening halfway like other window types. This allows for lots of fresh air as the breeze is funneled inside. Here are a few more things to know before picking out new casement windows for your home improvement project.

One important consideration is that casement windows are not interchangeable with awning windows. Rather, they feature hinges at the sides of the window frame instead of the top like awnings. This means that, while they both function similarly, the sashes of casement windows press tightly against the frame when closed for more restricted airflow making them the more energy efficient model.

Another key difference is that the angle of the sashes allows for maximum airflow from open casements. This helps to keep your home healthily ventilated and cooler in warm weather. However, this angle and design doesn’t offer the same protection against rain and other moisture like other window types.

Lastly, many homeowners opt for casements as they’re capable of displaying a full view while closed which helps maximize their home’s overall sunlight intake. This is a major differentiator as they are the only functional (openable) window that does so.

How Does a Casement Window Function?

As mentioned above, this type of window has a particular design to maximize air flow and the ventilation into your home. It does so when the sashes are fully opened, typically, via a crank system. This crank is used to gradually wind the window open and then wind it back tightly into the shut position. Because of how this crank system works, casement windows are best suited where a typical opening may be hard to reach.

For instance, windows over the kitchen sink or above the countertops may be easier to open with a crank, rather than pushing them up and possibly out of reach when it comes time to close them. A latch is then used to pull the sash all the way closed and held firmly against the weatherstripping to keep the elements out. Also available are push-out casements. These models may be best for accessibility-friendly home or simply for those who want to avoid the cranking mechanism.
