THE PERFECT MARRIAGE OF FUNCTION AND BEAUTY

The casement window is a popular choice thanks to its classic design and many functional benefits. Hinged on the sides, casement windows when opened allow for a freer flow of air, and also evoke a sense of traditional and timeless beauty. Not to mention, it is also easier to clean and is second only to the fixed window as the most weathertight window solution.

All windows supplied by HTR Windows and Doors can be customized with added accessories, or by simply tweaking color and sizing.

Replacement And Installation Of Casement Windows In Canada

Many people don’t realize the importance of having good windows in a home. If you’ve ever visited an old home in winter and noticed that the windows were all foggy with a draft of cool air coming from them, those are signs that they need to be replaced. No one wants to come home to a cold house with windows they can’t even see out of. Getting a new window installation and replacement done is an investment in your home and mental well-being. New energy-efficient windows are also able to reduce your energy bill over the months because they are designed to keep the cold air outside in winter, and the warm air outside in summer. If you think you’re in need of new windows, then casement windows are a wise choice that are common among many homeowners

Casement Windows In Canada

Casement windows are attached to the window frame by hinges located on the side. Many casement windows have a crank that’s used to open them. You’ll also see ones that have a handle. The location of the crank or handle might differ from one window to the next, but they are most commonly located near the bottom of the window. The secondary function of the crank/handle is that they act as a lock for the window.

What Are Some Benefits Of Casement Windows In Canada?

Casement windows have many benefits for your home:

Ventilation

Casement windows provide a good amount of ventilation because they open outward from the home. Because of their outward opening design, they also provide ample lighting in rooms.

Energy Savings

The sash on casement windows is able to move and seal against the weather-stripped when the window is locked. Because of that, airflow has a very hard time getting through. This results in an energy-efficient window that will save you money on monthly energy bills down the road.

Simple to Wash

Because of the simple design of casement windows, they are fairly easy to clean. All of the spaces are easy and convenient to reach. Not many people think of simplicity in washing when they’re purchasing windows, but it’s good to keep in mind because some of the other styles of windows on the market are very difficult and frustrating to wash.

What Are Some Downsides Of Casement Windows?

Just like everything with benefits, there are also some downsides:

Burglars Can Gain Entry Easier

When you’re doing a casement window install or repair, you’ll want the window contractor to inspect the window hinges to make sure they are working properly. Sometimes window hinges wear down over time, and that might make them easier to break into. Ensure that all of the hardware in the windows is still doing its job so that the windows remain difficult to get into from the outside.

Price

Casement windows are typically priced a little higher than some of the other windows, but the price will also depend on what specific materials and sizes you’re getting the windows in.

Sizes

Casement windows don’t usually come in very big sizes. If you’re wanting larger windows, you might have to consider other types.

Before deciding on your windows, do some research in the many different types of windows and how you want your home to look. Write down a list of questions, and then contact a window contractor to get the process started.
