Casement Windows

Casement Windows are Popular but There are Better Options

Casement windows are popular because they’re affordable, simple to install, simple to use but offer the look and feel of traditional European windows. Casement windows have long been the traditional window style across Europe but they’ve only recently been growing in popularity for new construction homes in North America. However, casement windows present a few issues related specifically to casement and awning windows:

  • The hardware on casement windows can be difficult to operate and susceptible to breakage.
  • Casement windows open out, so the sash edges are exposed to all weather conditions. They may lead to faster deterioration.
  • If left open during strong winds can over-extend or break the window.
  • It can be difficult to get larger windows with more glass area.
  • It’s recommended to periodically check the screws, hardware and hinges for breaks or any malfunction.

Casement Windows are Historically Easy to Use


Casement Windows are Historically Easy to Use

Casement windows are hinged on one side and open outwards. They close inwards and lock with a turn of the handle. Once closed and locked they are completely sealed from outside elements. Casement windows do not have the double action opening options that some of our other window designs offer (tilt and turn, tilt and glide).

Because casement windows are so simple, and the window action is to one side, the pane of glass is completely uninterrupted making these windows a great option for homes with views all around the home.

Custom Profile Options
We offer myriad of customization options. Panel configurations allow you to customize the opening to use bi-fold or multi-fold allowing greater flexibility. Finishes include classic PBC White, Irish Oak, Golden Oak, Rosewood, and many more popular colours. An extended range of woodgrain and colour laminate options are also available.
