What are Casement Windows?
Casement windows (also called crank windows) are usually tall and thin, opening out with the use of a hand crank. A casement window sash is hinged on the left or right side and includes accessible lever locks at multiple points for security and a weather tight seal. They open wider than other window styles, making them ideal for places that require extra ventilation like the kitchen, bathroom or basement
Why Choose Casement Windows?
EASY TO USE – Features a beautifully designed folding handle that is easy to operate, tucks away and doesn’t interfere with window shades or blinds.
ELEGANCE – Mortise-and-tenon frame and sash construction provides a beautifully traditional, hand-crafted look.
VERSATILITY – Casement windows are a popular choice for above counters, cabinets or anywhere that requires a reach.
COMFORT – When fully open, casements provide the most ventilation of all window styles. When closed, they prevent air infiltration better than any other type of operating window.
HISTORICAL ACCURACY – Custom grille patterns can mimic double-hung styling, making them a great option for restoration and renovation projects where historic accuracy is important.
