What Are Casement and Awning Windows?

Casement and awning windows are two types of windows that stand out due to their hinged operating mechanisms. Casement windows specifically have a hinge on one side and usually open outwardly utilizing a crank design. Casement windows swing open like a door and this allows for optimal ventilation and unobstructed views of the outdoors when completely opened. When closed, they provide an excellent seal against environmental factors, helping with energy efficiency. Casement windows are often chosen for their modern design and functionality.

Awning windows are similar to casement windows in that they are hinged, but they are hinged at the top and open outward from the bottom. They are designed to provide ventilation even during light rain, as the outward-opening design shields the interior from precipitation. Awning windows are often installed higher on walls or combined with other window types to preserve privacy while still allowing airflow.

Why Install Casement and Awning Windows?

Casement and awning windows provide a combination of functionality, aesthetics, and practicality, making them popular choices for homeowners seeking versatile window solutions.

  • Optimal Ventilation

    Both casement and awning windows can be fully opened, allowing for maximum airflow into your interior space. This can help regulate indoor temperature and improve air quality, particularly in areas with limited natural ventilation.

  • Energy Efficiency

    When properly sealed, casement and awning windows provide excellent insulation against drafts and outdoor elements. This can contribute to improved energy efficiency in the home, potentially leading to lower heating and cooling expenses.

  • Unobstructed Views

    These window types usually have fewer muntins (dividers between window panes) compared to other window styles, offering unobstructed views of the outdoors and maximizing natural light entry into the interior spaces.

  • Easy Operation

    Casement and awning windows are operated using a crank mechanism, which makes them easy to open and close. This is particularly beneficial for windows installed in tough-to-reach areas, such as above countertops or in high-ceilinged rooms.

  • Versatile Design Options

    Both casement and awning windows come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and materials to suit different architectural styles and design preferences. They can be customized with various grille patterns, hardware finishes, and glass options to complement the aesthetic of your home.

  • Weather Resistance

    The outward-opening design of casement and awning windows helps to deflect rainwater away from the interior of the home, making them suitable for use in rainy environments. This allows for ventilation even during light rain showers without worrying about water intrusion.

  • Enhanced Security

    Casement windows, in particular, offer excellent security when properly locked, as the hook-shaped locks embedded within the frame add additional resistance against forced entry. Additionally, awning windows are often installed higher on walls, making them less accessible from the outside.

Casement windows are a fantastic way to improve the curb appeal of your home. Like picture windows, they provide an unobstructed view of the outdoors and a tremendous amount of natural light to whatever room they’re in. However, they possess the incredibly useful ability to crank open to allow airflow into your home. For a crank window to accurately be called a casement window, the window must be hinged at the sides and open outward, almost like a door with a cranking mechanism. This allows airflow into your home and is ultimately easier to clean and maintain, mostly due to the fact that these windows don’t have sashes that you’d need to worry about. Awning windows are very similar in style but they are hinged at the top. Give us a call to learn more about these two window styles and their differences.
