Given that there are many types and styles of home replacement windows, it is important for homeowners to be able to distinguish one from the other. Each window serves a different purpose. Let’s take a closer look at casement windows!
Casement windows are hinged on the side and provide a contemporary look with unobstructed views. Casements are extremely energy efficient and are the most efficient in preventing air infiltration as they close inward and form a tight seal with multi-point locks. They are made with Argon-filled glass with Low-E (standard).
Where can they be found?
Casement windows have a large glass area, which increases the natural lighting you allow into your home. They are also very easy to operate and can be quickly opened, when that sense of urgency is present. Hence, they are best installed in kitchen areas, where every second counts in the busiest part of the house!
- The seal must be somewhat flexible in order the window to easily glide (open and close). The Owens Corning Air Sealing weather technology we use, cuts drafts by 24% compared to standard weather stripping.
- Easy to clean: because casement windows open wide to a 90 degree angle, the exterior of the casement window is easy to clean from the interior of the home.
- Style: casement windows look good on almost any home, so you can combine different options until you create a unit that complements your exterior doors.
- Our windows are made with an Intercept Ultra Warm-Edge Spacer, for a longer-lasting and more energy-efficient window.
