As a homeowner, you’re probably familiar with windows that lift up or slide open using a handle. Casement windows, on the other hand, are hinged on one side and use a cranking mechanism to open outward. They are most often installed above countertops, sinks, and appliances, but can be installed anywhere in the home.
Casement windows by Great Windows offer homeowners an array of attractive design features including no grille, prairie grill, colonial grill, top-down grill, pushout, flat top, and French. They can be customized to meet your desired color and size, and look great in a variety of materials. Casement windows can be crafted from vinyl, aluminum, fiberglass, clad, steel, and wood.
Because casement windows crank outwards, they cannot accept an air conditioning installation or storm screens. While some installations involve cranking inward, it is not a very common choice. The cranking mechanism also has restrictions on size, since the window cannot be too heavy or large. The opening must be strong enough to support the application, so our experts at Great Windows recommend lighter and smaller window constructions.
