Once you’ve decided it’s time to replace your windows, you’ll need to choose which window style is best for your home. That’s why understanding the custom options of each type of window is an essential part of the purchasing process.
What is a Casement Window?
Casement windows are hinged at the side and open outward to the left or right. Casement windows are commonly called crank windows due to the cranking mechanism that is used to open and close the windows. Stanek® casement windows have a fold-down handle that makes operating them simple. Our casement windows also open to a 90-degree angle, making cleaning the interior and exterior of the window easy from the inside of your home. They also have screens inside the window, while other replacement window styles have screens on the outside. Stanek® vinyl casement window screens are matched to the interior color of the window, making the screen look like it’s a part of the window.
Are Awning Windows the Same as Casement Windows?
While casement and awning windows are very similar in style, the difference between the two is that casement windows are hinged on the side of the window, while awning windows hinge at the top. Casement windows are ideal for openings where the height is greater than the width while awning windows are ideal for openings where the width is greater than the height.
