Aside from double hung windows, casement windows are probably the window homeowners choose most in the Savannah, Beaufort, and Hilton Head Island areas.
And when you consider the benefits of the casement window, it’s no mystery as to why…
Casement windows are attached to the frame by one or more hinges from the side. They are typically operated with a crank or lever, and open outward to the left or right like a door. You can even group casement windows together or with other windows to form a bay or bow window. And since there are no parts obstructing the glass, you get beautiful unimpeded views of the outdoors.
The design of the casement window makes it one of the most energy-efficient operational windows you can buy. When closed, casement windows create a tight seal that eliminates air and water leaks. Glass panes are inserted in a grooved frame and sealed with a glazing compound to secure the glass. And casements can come with advanced energy-efficiency technology that maximizes energy performance.
When open, casement windows provide refreshing airflow. Since the whole window opens, the crisp outdoor air floods into your home with no obstruction. And because of how casement windows open, they even let in the outside breeze at unusual angles.
Casement windows are a favorite among households with families and small children. The casement window’s lack of moving parts means there are few vulnerable spots for would-be intruders. And the best of the best casement windows (like ours!) have multi-point lock systems embedded on the inside of the frame, so they cannot be unlocked from the outside.
Casement windows also meet egress laws (laws that determine the size of a window for emergency exits in your home). Because of how they open, casement windows can be relatively small and still meet egress codes. This makes casements a reliable emergency exit in spaces like bedrooms.
