The Buyers Guide to Casement Windows

What are Casement replacement Windows?

Casement windows are a great option when you want to be able to open your windows wide eo enjoy great views and ventilation. Taller than they are wide, casement window sashes are attached to the frame with hinges on one of the vertical sides. Casement windows are easy to open and close with the turn of a crank-style handle that tucks away when not in use. This type of operation makes casements ideal for hard-to-reach windows, such as over a kitchen sink. Typically, casement windows are installed in pairs, creating a French-door style with the windows opening fully from top to bottom with nothing to block the airflow.

Casement Window vs. Double-Hung

What’s the difference between a casement window and a double-hung window? Both window styles are taller than they are wide, but casement windows swing open from side-mounted hinges, while double-hung sashes move up and down within the frame. When a casement window is fully open, the entire window opening is completely unobstructed. However, a double-hung window will always have at least half of the window area blocked by the glass window panes. All Improveit windows are designed to open smoothly and easily, year after year. However, casement windows operate with a crank handle, while double-hung window sashes must be lifted (bottom sash) or pulled down (top sash) to open, which can require more leverage or strength for some users.  

Where Should I Use a Casement Window?

Casement windows have a number of preferred locations, but aren’t right for every window opening. Their crank operation makes casements ideal for hard-to-reach areas, such as over a kitchen sink where reaching to lift a sash would be difficult. They also work well in end placements of bay and bow windows. Because of the space needed to allow a casement window to swing open, avoid placing them in areas that may have obstructions nearby, such as tree branches or air conditioning equipment. Safety is also an essential consideration. Casement windows open fully from top to bottom, which may pose a danger to children and pets.
