We know we have a lot of different options and styles of windows available at Mr. Rogers Windows and Doors. Learning about each type of window can be a little daunting, and sometimes it can be hard to determine which style of window is best for you. Casement windows are one of our window types that people are sometimes confused about. While most people have seen casement windows in a home, they can’t always match the type of window with the name.
A casement window is attached to it’s frame by a hinge. They’re similar to awning windows, but instead of being hinged along the top, they’re hinged along the side. They’re also operated with a crank, so they can be quickly and easily cranked open and shut.
So, what makes a casement window so good, anyway? Read on to learn more about the casement windows available from Mr. Rogers.
They’ll Keep Your Home Peaceful
Casement windows are great for keeping outdoor noise outside. Their crank operation and tight seals mean they always close snugly against your home. If you have noisy neighbors or live on a busy street, casement windows are a great choice if you’re looking for replacement windows that will block out the hustle and bustle of the outdoor areas surrounding your home.
They’re Great in Areas That Are Hard to Reach
Many people install casement windows in their kitchens behind the sink. If you need a replacement window installed above cabinetry, behind a counter, or another spot in your home that’s difficult to reach, a casement window might be your best bet. The cranks on our windows make opening and closing them effortless, so they’re easy to operate – even in hard to reach areas.
They’re Ideal for Natural Ventilation
Do you find yourself opening your windows often to let the breeze in? Not only are casement windows easy to operate, they can be hinged to open at a variety of angles. This means you can angle them to perfectly catch the breeze outside to bring some fresh air into your home.
They’ll Brighten Up Any Room
Casement windows allow for lots of light to enter a room! If you’re interested in a picture window but want to be able to open and close it, a casement window might be your best bet. They can also be outfitted with traditional or modern grille patterns to allow different amounts of light in and fit your home’s existing aesthetic.
They’re Extremely Energy Efficient
Since our casement windows close snugly against the frame and lock at multiple points, they have a weathertight seal that keeps your indoor air inside while blocking the outdoor elements. They’re also outfitted with High Performance Low-E4 glass, making them extremely energy efficient.
