Casement Windows Provide Easy Operation For The Hard-To-Reach Windows In Your Bay Area Home.
The hand cranks that open casement windows come at a great advantage for windows in hard-to-reach places—such as above countertops, sinks, furniture, etc. You don’t have to worry about pushing a window open or reaching up to close your windows—most hand cranks are found on the base of the window and make the windows extremely simple to open and close.
On average, casement windows are the second most energy efficient type of window, after fixed-pane windows. When closed, casement windows have an airtight seal, preventing unwanted airflow into and out of the house.
Wide Open Ventilation
Unlike other windows that only open half-way vertically or horizontally, casement windows open completely. This can allow for a nice breeze into your home on a cool summer night or allow for the first feeling of spring to freshen up your home after a cold winter.
The locks on casement windows are embedded into the frame, providing enhanced safety and security. You can also choose how wide you want your windows open, so you don’t have to leave your home vulnerable with a big opening.
Add Style And Superior Ventilation To Your Home With Awning Windows
Awning windows, much like casement windows, open outward. Unlike a casement window, however, an awning window opens with a top hinge instead of a side hinge. Awnings are very popular and have many benefits over other styles of windows, such as improved ventilation and design versatility.
Since awning windows open from the top, they create an awning effect (hence their name) and provide protection from the weather while still allowing for ventilation. They will allow little to no leakage from rain when open, so you can enjoy fresh air in your home or office, even when the weather is bad.
Privacy & Security
As typically smaller windows, awnings can be installed higher up on the wall than many types of windows. Without compromising your privacy or safety, they still provide natural light and ventilation. They are great in bathrooms and bedrooms and their ease-of-use makes them perfect to add over a counter or sink.
Awning windows feature advantages in versatility that few other styles of window can offer. Because they can be installed higher than other types of windows, awning windows provide greater flexibility when designing and styling your décor. They can also feature window grilles and be placed in patterns that add unique light into your space.
