Casement Windows for Burlington, NC
A casement window also referred to as a crank-out window, has a single sash that opens outward on a vertical axis by rotating a crank that is attached to the sash with heavy duty hinges. The hinges can open the sash to a full 90 degrees allowing for easy cleaning from inside the home. A multipoint locking system closes the unit tightly from a single lever. The casement is the most energy efficient of all operable window styles. Casements may be joined together into double, triple or quadruple units.
What is an awning window?
An awning window has a single sash that opens outward on a horizontal axis. The hardware and construction are very similar to the casement window line.
Where should I consider installing a casement window?
If you are looking for replacement windows to update your home, casement windows are an excellent choice for hard-to-reach areas like over a kitchen sink. They also work well in locations with a projecting window like bow or bay windows. With the single crank operation, casement windows allow homeowners to open and close the window with ease while also letting in more light and visibility than other window styles.
