Casement windows are a stylish, elegant, and versatile type of window that will make an excellent addition to any home.
Features of Casement Windows
Casement windows are crank operated windows that can fully open. The sash connects to the window frame with a hinge. Unlike the typical lifting or pulling mechanism to open a window, casement windows are hinged at the side. The cranking mechanism can be found at the bottom of the window, and this allows for a smooth opening function.
To close the window, you simply turn the crank handle the opposite way. Casement windows can swing open from the left or the right side, depending on your personal preference.
