Casement windows are beautiful in nearly all settings – ranging from historic residences to contemporary-style homes. Grille placement makes all the difference when it comes to casements in traditional or historic homes. The position of the grilles affects the entire look of the window. With the proper grille placement, the look of the window is flexible and customizable. In more contemporary homes, casements without window grilles provide a clear unobstructed view of the great outdoors.
Single hung and double hung windows slide up and down on a track, while sliding windows open by moving from side to side. Casement windows are different because they have a hinge and open outward, like a door.
While single hung, double hung and sliding window openings are always at least partially covered by one sash, casement windows can open all the way, in the same way that a door can open all the way. If you have opposing opening casement windows, you can take advantage of the direction of the breeze to “capture” fresh air and direct it into your home. This is good for air flow and can help you regulate the temperature inside your home on temperate spring and fall days.
Single hung, double hung and sliding windows have multiple sashes, which means there’s always a part of the view out the window that is covered by the frames around the sash glazing.
Casement windows are different because there’s only one sash. Unless your window has grilles, you’ll enjoy an clear, unobstructed view out the window, day and night.
Casement windows are closed and opened with a crank. When fully closed, the sash pulls tightly up against flexible weather stripping to seal tightly. This is good for your window’s energy efficiency, because it minimizes any potential no air leaks that can cause drafts.
During the coldest winter or the hottest summer, your windows should be no more drafty or uncomfortable than any other part of your house – particularly if your windows are made from energy efficient materials like Fibrex window frames and low-e glass.
