Casement & Awning Windows
Casement windows & Awning windows are hinged windows that swing outward, making it easy to let fresh air into your home. They easily glide open and shut securely with the turn of a handle.
They are hinged on the left or right side of the window, while Awning windows are hinged at the top and swing outward from the bottom.
A casement window is hinged on the right or left-hand side of the window and opens outward for letting fresh air into any room of the house. One of the best places for your casement window is over the kitchen sink. Here are a couple of reasons why:
1. They Offer an Unobstructed View
No matter how tall you are, you can stand at the sink and see out the window with nothing blocking your view. The narrow profiles give you the most glass area for the space you have. We recommend Andersen’s TruScene screen for the best quality with the best view. Almost invisible, the screen gives you a view, which is like looking out a clear piece of glass.
2. A Casement Window Opens Easily
You open a casement window with a handle found on the bottom of the window. Reaching for the handle is much easier than using both hands to lift a double-hung sash. If you have a double-hung over your kitchen sink, we’d highly recommend you consider upgrading to casement to have the perfect view and easy to open access.
Like casement windows, awning windows swing outward, away from the frame creating a convenient way to let in the fresh air. However, unlike casement windows, awning windows open upward. If you like to keep your windows open during a light rainstorm, these windows make it possible to do so while still keeping the inside of your home dry.
Our vinyl awning windows don’t have exposed wood on the outside, which gives peace of mind, which protects the window in a rainstorm.
These windows are also often placed above other windows, including casement windows.
