The choice of windows is a major decision when building a new home or remodeling an existing one. One beautiful option, common in newer homes, is the Casement Window. These windows are popular, especially in the western part of the United States, because of their versatility and use in hard to reach areas, but can be used anywhere in your home that fits your style.
A casement window opens to the outside by means of a hinge along one of the sides. They are opened by use of a crank on the inside of the home and can be set to open either to the right or to the left, like a door. This allows more light to come into the home and provides for a larger viewing area.
There is a wide variety of unique shapes and styles to choose from and the options are virtually endless, from large picture windows in main areas, to tight areas above cabinets, counters or hard to reach areas. They come in many different materials such as wood, aluminum or vinyl, various shapes and sizes, and endless array of exterior and interior colors. They also come with custom grille patterns and more.
Casement windows are some of the most energy efficient windows, ventilating style of window, because they can close completely, shutting out the drafts and lowering your heating bills. Also, because the panes of glass open and close as a unit, they can be built with double, or even triple panes for added insulation. Pella Windows and Anderson Windows are just a few of the manufacturers that offer these windows.
Once you have decided to replace your outdated windows or are building a new home and you decide to use casement windows, contact your window contractor and they will be able to help you to make the best decisions when making choices about styles and budget.
