Homeowners have so many wonderful design options for their replacement windows. Sometimes, the simple styles are the best choice for your home. At ACM Window and Door, we offer casement windows, which are side-opening windows with a certain lighthearted charm. Just what are these windows and what benefits can you enjoy by installing them?

Casement Window Design

The casement window is designed to give homeowners a combination of safety with easy use and ventilation. It’s also a good style for homes where you want to emphasize vertical lines or have tall, narrow window openings. Some older homes also use this design on their original, historic windows. So, you may want to replicate it with the replacement windows.

Casement windows are hinged at the side rather than at the top or having a sliding track. Most are also crank windows with simple crank handles that turn to slowly open the window. Usually, casement windows don’t open very wide. You’ll get just a few inches of width to allow for ventilation.

This means that casements are ideal for areas of the home where you need extra ventilation, such as the kitchen, bathroom, basement, or even a stifling second or third floor.

Benefits of Casement Windows

By choosing a casement window you’ll also enjoy a few benefits for improved comfort and a nicer home. Some of these include:

  • Increased Ventilation: These side-opening windows fit in tight spots in normally closed in or stuffy areas.

  • More Accessible: The 360-degree hand crank makes opening windows much less of a strain on arms and hands.

  • Better View: Enjoy unobstructed views through these tall windows without bars or rails running through the center.

  • Increased Security: These MARVIN windows keep you safer with narrow openings and multipoint locks.

  • Energy Savings: Our energy efficient windows with dual- and triple-pane glass and gas fill keep your home cozy year round.
