Available in a variety of design styles

Today’s modern casement windows can be customized to fit within just about any size opening.

In addition, you can augment your casement window with classic and contemporary designs such as:

  • French look
  • Flat topped
  • Pushout
  • Upper-to-lower grille
  • Colonial
  • Prairie

You can open them fully

Perhaps no other window type can be opened as far as casement windows (which is ideal for those days where you want to generate a cross breeze).

Compare the opening capabilities of casement windows to other kinds:

These do not open

The ability to open casement windows completely also helps with its energy efficiency. That’s because, when closed, the sash presses up directly against the frame.

As a result, an airtight barrier is created which eliminates lost air (from the inside) or drafts (from the outside).

Casement windows deliver great views

The strips of wood, vinyl, plastic or other material dividing glass panes in windows are called muntins.

While they look nice, they can also impede the view from your window.

Single –sash casement windows do not have muntins (dual-sash windows have a single muntin between each sash; however it is hardly an impediment)

As a result, there’s less obstruction between you, your window, and the view you’re looking at.

Safe and secure

The design and construction of casement windows make them very difficult to break into (perfect if you’re concerned about protecting your family).

That’s due to casement locks, which are:

  • Hook-shaped
  • Inserted within the frame of the window itself
  • Inaccessible to anyone looking to forcibly open the window
