With Impact casement windows, you can easily let in fresh air and bright sunshine into your home. They are hinged on one side and opened by cranking a handle. They are also among the most energy efficient window options.
They don’t have sashes that need to be lowered like double hung or single hung windows do, and they don’t have muntins that can hinder your view.
Easy to Operate
Unlike traditional single-hung or sliding windows, casement windows open outward with hinges on the side and require only a simple crank of a handle to open and close. This allows for easy operation and a clear view of the outside. They are also great for areas that may be difficult to reach, such as above a kitchen sink.
Moreover, when opened, they create an effective seal that helps regulate internal temperatures and decrease electricity costs. As a result, they are a smart choice for homes in warm climates.
As for cleaning, they are among the easiest to clean out of all operable window styles. This is because they swing wide to allow you to easily access both sides of the glass from inside your home. With a minimum amount of effort, you can get them sparkling clean and enjoy unobstructed Florida views. You can even pair them with a fixed window for matching sight lines, giving your property a clean and modern design.
Easy to Clean
Unlike sliding windows that have tracks on the bottom and top, casement windows open outward. This allows you to easily clean the outside and inside of your window. They also catch side breezes, allowing more fresh air into your home.
These are a great option for homes that need ventilation and an unobstructed view. They also seal tightly, making them a good choice for areas where gripping the window is difficult like windows above sinks and cabinets.
Impact resistant casement windows are a perfect solution for protecting your home from hurricane wind, heavy rain, debris, and intruders. They feature fusion-welded corners to prevent water from seeping through the seals and double-pane low-emissivity glass that can resist external forces. They are available in a wide variety of styles and frames. You can also choose from several color options. They are also easy to operate and maintain. The only thing they require is an occasional wipe-down to keep them looking pristine.
Imagine yourself enjoying a cool breeze in your beautiful home, looking out at a serene landscape. This scenario may sound like something from a movie, but it can become a reality when you install casement windows in your home.
As their name suggests, casement windows are hinged on one side and open outward using a crank. This design allows for unobstructed views and optimal ventilation, making them an excellent choice for spaces that are difficult to air out with a single-hung window or sliding window.
When closed, they form a tight seal to keep heat and cold outside, helping you save on energy bills throughout the year. Additionally, they have hook-shaped locks embedded directly into the frame, which makes them more challenging for burglars to manipulate and use as entry points. This feature can significantly increase your peace of mind when you are home alone.
Typically, casement windows have a better “U” factor (how much indirect heat passes through the window) than hung or slider windows. This translates to more energy efficiency for your home.
In addition, they can also have a low-e coating on the glass and frame to help further reduce the amount of infrared light entering your house. This helps keep your interiors cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
Depending on the material and style you choose, they can be made of aluminum, fiberglass, wood, or composites. The wood frames are often clad with vinyl or aluminum to protect them from the elements. This helps increase their durability and longevity. Casement windows are a great choice for homeowners looking to improve ventilation and add an unobstructed view to their Florida homes. They are also a great option for hard to reach areas. Contact our team today to learn more about how we can install casement impact windows in your Florida home.
