Benefits of Vinyl Casement Windows
Vinyl casement windows can provide the following benefits:
Increased airflow. Because the entire sash of a crank-out window opens outside, it lets in more air than a double hung or sliding glass window. In addition, if you have a scented bush on the outside - you'll enjoy bringing the aroma into your home.
Easy opening style. The hardware on a vinyl casement window is located at the bottom, which makes it easier for shorter people or those in a wheelchair or walker to open than a standard double hung or slider window. It's perfect for a universal or accessible designed home.
Higher security - Since the window locks are hook shaped and embedded into the frame, you can't break into a casement window by prying the frames open from the outside (unlike a double hung or sliding glass window).
Full views - Since casement windows don't have 2 sashes (like double hung and sliding windows) you'll create more unobstructed views.
Flexibility - Choose from single vertical casement windows, french casement windows (which come together in the center), or horizontal style hopper or awning style casement windows.
Suitable for egress windows. The ability to safely and easily exit is an important consideration when choosing windows to escape in case of a fire. Local building codes often require egress windows in sleeping rooms. Casement windows have larger sashes, which make them the preferred choice for egress applications in bedrooms in the basement.
Improved curb appeal. New wood or vinyl crank out windows upgrade the appearance of the inside and outside of a home and enhance the architectural design (especially if you use decorative glass packages).
Reduced energy costs. Old single pane windows increase your heating and cooling bills. Thermal casement windows with ENERGY STAR glass packages can pay for themselves in a short time.
