Open your home up to gentle breezes and expansive views with casement windows. This window style is hinged on the side and opens by cranking a handle.
They’re a great choice for homes that don’t have enough space for double-hung windows. They also provide maximized glass area, enhanced ventilation and easier cleaning.
1. They’re Energy-Efficient
Unlike conventional window styles, casement windows don’t have bulky sashes that can obstruct your view of the outdoors. Instead, they open wide and provide a maximized glass area that can enhance your home’s architecture while bringing in natural airflow.
Moreover, they have a tight seal that prevents energy loss and makes it harder for burglars to enter your home. Unlike conventional double-hung windows that easily pull up if left unlatched, casement windows can only be opened using a crank handle. This feature makes them difficult to pry open and break into.
Similarly, they also have a low-profile window screen that protects the interior from debris and insects. Our Truth Maxim casement windows have an insulated glass unit with optimal air space that improves energy-saving performance. This means you’ll save money on your energy bills while enjoying the comfort of your NWA and Fort Smith home. Our windows are also backed by our Lifetime Warranty. Contact us today to learn more.
2. They’re More Secure
A casement window hinges on one side and swings open like a door with the crank of a handle. The sides of the window are sealed into the frame making them difficult to break into. This feature makes them a great choice for homes in harsh weather, especially windy and rainy.
Window frames vary in price and material. Vinyl, aluminum, and wood are standard materials, but top brands offer more premium options such as composite or fiberglass. Frame materials influence the cost of the entire project, but also affect how much energy a window saves in the long run.
When choosing a new window style, consider how much space you want to open and how easy it will be to operate. A replacement window should allow you to open your home wide for ventilation and natural light, but should also be easy to access even when positioned high on a wall. With state-of-the-art Truth Maxim hardware, replacement casement windows are easy to open and close, even in hard-to-reach places.
3. They Bring a Breeze
When you open a casement window, the sash swings outward using a crank handle and allows in a pleasant breeze. This is great for homes along streets or in cities where buildings might obstruct natural breezes. Casement windows can also let in breezes that enter at a side angle.
These windows can be opened wide and are a popular choice for spaces in your home where ventilation is desired, like bathrooms or kitchens. They are especially convenient for hard-to-reach areas like over sinks or large appliances.
With a maximized glass surface area, these windows are the perfect way to enjoy unobstructed views of your property and the surrounding scenery. Our window installation company offers a variety of frame and color finishes to suit your style. For a sleeker look, you can choose the flush casement option that conceals the crank and latches in the closed position.
4. They’re Easy to Operate
Unlike sliding and double hung windows, casement windows swing open using a crank handle that’s easy to operate. They can be opened wide to let fresh air into a room, even over sinks and other obstructions.
Because of their tight seal and simple opening mechanism, casement windows are among the more energy efficient window options available. However, these windows do have a few issues that homeowners should keep in mind. The mechanical crank can rust or break over time due to neglect and use, while their edges are exposed making them vulnerable to weather damage.
