Replacement casement windows offer a host of benefits and decorative features for New Jersey and New York Metro area homeowners. Because you can open and angle the glass portion of the window unit to capture outside air to direct it indoors, this style is perhaps the most efficient ventilation window around. The fine detailing of this window style provide both a beautiful and functional window you’ll be proud to add to your home remodeling project. Here are a few things that make the casement window such a popular choice.
8 Design Features that Make Casement Windows Popular
Now that you know that casement windows maximize air flow, here are eight more design benefits to help you decide if this style is a good fit for your home.
#1. Often seen as the go-to window solution over counters and other hard to reach areas that make it difficult to operate vertical sash styles, this versatile window fits well in almost any setting as a stand alone window unit a complementary fixture for fixed windows.
#2. Can be mounted as a single window unit or as a pair of windows constructed with a common frame with hinges on the outer edges.
#3. When shopping for casement windows in a hardware store, you may see them labeled as FCL or FCR. The last letter indicates where the hinges are mounted when viewing the window unit from the curb – the locking mechanism is on the opposite edge. An FCL (left-handed window) has a locking mechanism on the right side. An FCR (right-handed window) has the locking mechanism on the left edge of the window.
#4. Casement windows seal by compression, rather than sliding against the weather-stripping and the frame. This feature gives the window superior protection against the elements with less wear and tear, resulting in a higher energy-efficiency rating than other operable windows.
#5. Customizing the appearance of replacement casement windows may include lattice and geometric grille patterns, along with standard layouts, giving you opportunities to design windows that complement a home’s unique architectural features.
#6. This particular style has a single operational handle, sometimes called a crank. A special factory-applied coating (sheath) makes it easier to grip with less hand-pressure, making it a perfect choice for people who have arthritis.
#7. One-touch, multi-point, locking secures your windows tightly with a single lever. Simple to open, simple to secure.
#8. Cleaning is super easy. You can reach both sides of the glass from inside your home. And, since screens are mounted on the inside, you don’t even have to go outdoors to keep your entire window unit sparkling clean and the view crystal clear.
