Instead of having a handle and lifting up, casement windows are hinged at the side and crank outward. They’re often installed over sinks, countertops, or appliances, but can be placed anywhere in the home.
- Variety of design features. Casement windows offer a number of attractive design features such as French, flat top, pushout, top down grille, colonial grill, prairie grill, and no grill. They can be customized for precise size and desired color, and they look attractive in a number materials. Typical casement window materials include wood, steel, clad (wood covered with aluminum or vinyl), fiberglass, aluminum, and vinyl.
- Second most efficient window. Casement windows are the second most energy-efficient, after fixed-pane windows. The window sash presses against the frame on closing, creating an airtight seal. This helps prevent air entry and leakage.
- Easy to open and close. Because they use single-lever latches or tandem latches, casement windows are easy to open and close. Most models can also be fitted for automatic openers.
- Excellent ventilation. Casement windows open all the way outward. Unlike double-hung windows, which are closed on top, casement windows are wide open from top to bottom and side-to-side providing excellent natural ventilation and light.
