Looking at the Different Types of Casement Windows
Casement windows are the most contemporary and convenient of all window types. The window is mounted on hinges and a manual (or automatic) mechanism cranks the window outward and away from the home. Some homeowners may choose to have the window crank in for easier cleaning, but this isn’t common.
Examining Casement Windows: Advantages and Disadvantages
Instead of having a handle and lifting up, casement windows are hinged at the side and crank outward. They’re often installed over sinks, countertops, or appliances, but can be placed anywhere in the home.
Bay windows offer benefits to both the interior and exterior of the home. Inside, the windows offer panoramic views, more natural light (which can enter from multiple directions), good ventilation from cross breezes, and additional square footage for an enlarged room. Outside, the windows jut out from the exterior of the home, adding dimension. The style offers a traditional feel with a modern touch.
