Casement Window

TargetWoman is a portal dedicated to Women - Pages of lasting value on issues women care about.

If you are looking for windows that are decorative, then casement windows are the best choice. Casement windows open out like doors. With casement windows, you can get a clear and unhindered view of the outdoors. Make your home energy efficient with casement windows as you can seal the window well when tightly shut. Casement windows are hinged windows that are typically used over the kitchen sink or areas that are difficult to access with double hung windows. Double casement windows or French casement windows involve 2 windows hinged on the sides.


Choosing casement windows

Most modern homes sport casement windows. Casement windows can be opened completely like doors in the outward direction. Casement windows can be fitted with clear, translucent or frosted glass. Typically such windows open out with the help of a crank fitted to the inside. Casement windows can be made with natural wood, vinyl, aluminum or fiberglass.


  • Casement windows allow for larger area to be opened when compared with sliding windows.

  • With casement windows, you can catch side breeze.

  • You can ensure that the edges of the casement window are beveled so that snow and water do not accumulate on the ledge.

  • With vinyl casement windows, you can make your home energy efficient by preventing the heat from the house being transferred out through metallic sashes.

  • Do not go in for very tall casement windows. If your casement windows are planned higher than 4 feet, chances are that you will have problems with the opening and closing.

  • Very wide casement windows can lead to sagging of the sash over time. In a situation where you need a larger casement window, two or more sashes are used to form units.

  • Casement windows offer resistance against drafts. This is because the sealing created by the frame against the sash is stronger than in most other window types.
  • Casement windows can be paired with soundproofing glass to maintain serenity and quiet indoors. You can choose to go in for slim style casement windows in vinyl to offer an expansive and unobstructed view of the outdoors.

Casement window maintenance

To maintain smooth functioning of casement windows, ensure that their hinges are cleaned and lubricated periodically. Do not use abrasive cleaners on the glass of your casement windows. Use a soft dry cloth to remove debris. You can opt for vinyl casement windows for easier maintenance. Besides such windows wear better in adverse weather. Cleaning the outsides of a casement window is not an easy task.

Casement windows can be decorated in many innovative styles, from wooden blinds and curtains to drapes and screens and roller shades. You can choose from elaborate stylish decoration or café chic blinds. Blend your casement window treatment to your room décor. You can choose to add grills or screens along with casement windows for decorative or other purposes.
