Casement windows are not a new design; in fact, they have been around since medieval times and were the earliest form of movable window!
Perfect for heritage restorations or to add some character, these windows bring a touch of class and old-time elegance to your home.
As the leaders in bespoke timber windows in Sydney, the team at Windoor should be your first port of call for all your timber window and door needs!
Though casement windows have a long history, they are anything but outdated! The most popular form of these beautiful timber windows open outwards, ensuring you have maximum space in your home.
Casement windows can be similar to awning windows in that some casement windows open using a cranking mechanism. However, the major difference is that casements are hinged at the side, while awnings are hinged at the top.
For those who aren’t a fan of the crank mechanism on their windows, casement windows also come in a “push out” style, which allows homeowners to push the windows open.
Some other benefits of these windows are:
Thanks to their side-on design, casement windows can be a great way to improve airflow into your home, acting like a chute to funnel air in.
As casement windows open vertically, they catch far more air than some of their counterparts, making for a great alternative to using your air conditioning for hours each day.
Casement windows are a smart choice for spots in your home that may be hard to access, such as above kitchen benches or behind furniture in bedrooms or living areas.
With the easy-to-use crank to open the windows, you don’t have to worry about awkwardly reaching around and straining yourself just to get a window open.
If you’re looking for a window that keeps weather out, you should opt for a casement window! The seals on a casement window seal tight against the casement sash, keeping out moisture and adverse weather.
This tight seal also increases the energy efficiency of your home, as the seal prevents any inside air from escaping and any outside air from creeping in.
Picking the perfect window for your home can be difficult, especially when you have so many different aspects to consider.
