About Casement Windows

Casement windows are hinged on one side and swing open like a door. The windows can be opened with a crank or manually pushed open. Casement windows are ideal for bathrooms or kitchens in situations when reaching the upper part of the window is difficult. These windows are a great design option for any room in your home where you want expansive views and plenty of natural sunlight. Casement windows prevent air filtration better than any other type of window that can be opened.


Casement Window Variations


Marvin french casement windows with screensCrank Open. The positioning of the crank at the bottom of the sash makes crank out casement windows easy to open in hard to reach locations.  The window can be cranked open the desired amount to funnel airflow into the home.

Push Out. Instead of a crank and gear mechanism, push out casement windows open with the simple turn of a handle and a gentle push.  The absence of a crank provides a low profile, sleek appearance on the interior for contemporary designs. 

Inswing or Outswing.  You can select a casement window that swings outward or into the room.  The design that is best for you depends on potential obstacles, like an exterior bush or interior furniture.

French.  Comprised of two windows, each swings open from the middle like double doors, with no center post to obstruct views.
