Do you need new windows this fall? Instead of determining where to add a new opening for a window, examine the condition of your current windows. There could be room for casement windows. Here are some ideas for how to configure them.
What Are They?
These windows feature hinges that allow to open out onto the left or the right. You might also see them called crank windows since that is what you use to open and close them. These replacement windows are incredibly easy to clean as well since they can open to a ninety-degree angle. Get both sides clean and keep them as clear and beautiful as the day they were first installed.
How Are They Different from Awning Windows?
Casement windows and awning windows are similar enough that you might not be able to distinguish them from one another. There is a noticeable difference, though: casement windows are hinged on the sides, while awning windows are hinged on the top. If the opening in your wall is higher than it is wide, then you should add a casement window.
What Benefits Do They Have?
You can use these windows to help boost your curb appeal. They’ll also give you uninterrupted views of your landscape and also help increase ventilation in the rooms that need it, such as kitchens and bathrooms. You can also use them in the living room, in the den, and in a sunroom. All of these rooms could use even more natural light, especially if you choose the right way to configure them.
How Can You Configure Them?
There are several ways to configure and customize your new casement windows. For instance, you can choose to add panes of energy-efficient glass. This way, you can draw in more natural light and prevent that extra warmth from escaping your home.
You can also choose to add some decorative touches such as windows grids and window grilles. If you’d like to change the colors on your windows, whether on the inside or the outside, then you can choose to do that too – and whether you would like your windows to be fixed, vented, or with stacked transoms, you can have those options in place. Not sure what a stacked transom is? It refers to the sashes where two windows meet.
