Casement windows are worth considering for your home because they do not only give you a more expansive outdoor view but also improves ventilation. You can crank these windows open to allow more fresh air into your living spaces. This option also comes with hook-shaped casement locks, which are embedded within its frame, helping your home stay more secure.
We’re addressing some of the most common questions about this window style in this blog post.
Where Should I Install Casements?
Casements open outwards through a crank, making it an ideal option in an area where there is a lot of space on the exterior of the house. However, experts do not recommend installing them in locations near to a garage or heavy foot traffic areas, such as balconies, front porches, or decks. Consider installing this window replacement option in parts of the house where you want to improve airflow, such as bathrooms or kitchens. Since these windows open wider than double-hung windows, they provide better ventilation.

Do These Windows Have Safety Issues?
