Casement Windows Replacement with Remodel USA
Until it’s time to update your home windows, you might not have realized how many types of windows are available to choose from. Most people are familiar with the traditional window types, such as the single-hung or double-hung window styles. There are other types of windows, including bow windows, bay windows, awning windows, picture windows, sliding windows, and casement windows.
Casement windows are usually not a lot of homeowners’ top choices when they start thinking about replacement window options. This is surprising given the numerous styles, configurations, and custom options available with casement windows. They are also low-maintenance.
Here at Remodel USA, we recognize that casement windows are seriously overlooked. So we are providing some reasons to consider these when you’re ready for a window upgrade. You might find that a casement window installation is just what you need.
What is a Casement Window?
Casement windows typically hinge to the side and open outward to the left or right side of the home or building. They usually have cranks or easy-run and fold-down handles. They also are usually double or triple-paned, depending on what you want.
Traditionally, casement windows are installed where homeowners desire more ventilation and airflow.
These are typically bathrooms and kitchens, but some homeowners also opt to install casement windows in their living rooms and bedrooms. Others even choose to install these windows in hallways with outside access and sunrooms.
Casement Window Types
While the most common casement windows are single casement windows, there are several other types. These include push-out, in-swing, outswing, double French, and push-out French casement windows. Another article discusses the types of casement windows in detail.
Remodel USA has you covered whatever type of casement window you desire for your home.
Benefits of Casement Window Installation
Casement windows are probably the most energy-efficient windows homeowners choose. A well-installed casement window has a tight seal, keeping outside air out when ventilation is not a concern.
A tightly sealed interior is important because your HVAC system can control your home’s climate without the additional stress of outside temperatures. The more outside air gets in, the harder your AC works — and the higher your electric bill will get.
Therefore, as a homeowner, properly installed casement windows with insulated glass are a great addition to your home.
Remodel’s vinyl casement windows are well-installed by our team of experienced installers. All of our windows come with best-in-market insulation properties and exceed Energy Star standards. We offer options like Argon-filled windows and reflective metallic coatings, among others.
Casement windows don’t have a sliding sash, so they provide clear, unobstructed views of your surroundings. They pair well with bay windows and even picture windows.
If you’re thinking of having bay or bow windows, one or two of the sections could be a casement window. Talk about versatility, style, and functionality — casement windows tick every box!
Mobility-Friendly and Easy-to-Clean
Most casement windows have an easy-to-operate crank mechanism, which is an important perk for homeowners with short-term or long-term mobility issues.
Double-hung or single-hung windows can be a challenge for people in a wheelchair or if you’re recovering from an injury or surgery.
The high-performance cranks that casement windows have made it much easier to operate them, especially if installed in awkward, hard-to-reach areas of the home, such as over a kitchen sink.
Cleaning casement windows is also easier than a lot of other window types. They are designed to swing outward on a hinge, so, in most cases, cleaning the inside and outside is easy.
