What is a Casement Window?
A casement window is a window that is attached to its frame by one or more hinges. It is hinged at the side. Casement is opened either with a crank and lever.
Here are 3 advantages of casement windows:
1. Fully Open Window
You have the opportunity to open the entire window compared to the half window offered by double hung and sliding windows. It is also a huge advantage compared to fixed windows which never open.
2. Side Breeze
If there is not much space between your house and your neighbor’s, then installing casement windows make sense. In general, there is not much breeze from that side, however, casement windows allow the wind to scoop more wind than any other windows could.
3. Difficult to Break Into
Casement windows specially designed their locks into hook shapes and they are embedded within the frame, turning into almost impenetrable.
