Benefits Of Casement Windows
Generally, casement windows open outward, thus providing significantly better ventilation than sliding or double-hung window of equal size. Unlike other windows, casement windows can be used to catch a passing breeze. Since it opens out, this allows for nearly the entire window to open. Sliding and double-hung windows are limited to less than a half area.
Casement windows are very difficult to break into because locks and keepers are embedded within the window frame. This makes it virtually impossible to break into without breaking glass.
Full View To The Outdoors
Casement windows provide virtually unobstructed views to the outdoors. Therefore homeowners can have a greater sense of openness and connection with the natural environment.
Some homeowners may purchase a traditional window style, such as double-hung windows, for entire home, but will use casement windows in places more difficult to reach. A casement window is an ideal window to place above cabinets, counter tops and sinks, because the handle mechanism makes it easier to open. Some people choose casement windows for bathrooms as well.
