Let the Sunshine In but Keep the Thieves Out: Casements let a lot of light in, creating a bright and positive interior atmosphere. At the same time, they keep unwanted intruders out, because casements are very difficult to break into. This is because the locks on casement windows are hook-shaped and these hooks are embedded within the frame- which makes them virtually untouchable. I should add, while on the topic of safety, that casement windows tend to be discouraged in homes with children. But there is no need to worry, because today's casement windows are available with childproof safety handles.
They offer full window opening. In reality, no other type of window can open as far as casement windows do and this offers you better home lighting or ventilation for that matter. Remember that in double hung windows only the lower part or upper part open, but you can never open both, sliding windows have one side fixed and only one opens and other windows such as open or fixed windows never open at all. If you value the size of the opening, then casements make the best selection for your home, but you must consider the safety of your children, especially if you have small children because the wide opening of the windows can pose dangers.
Casement windowsare probably the most common type of window in the British building trade. That means they are also the most versatile - with different types of casement being available for pretty much every environment and function. Take the replacement casement, for example. This rather nifty piece of glazing engineering has been designed to allow existing home owners to have their windows changed without any mess or damage to external or internal walls.
An important factor to consider when buying windows is the maintenance. Casements tend to be low maintenance and usually hold up pretty well in their frames. The only thing that needs to be watched are the hinges on the casement which can rust easily and need to be replaced. Due to the fact the frames for sash windows are made from wood, they do have a tendency to rot. The weather may also make the window frames shrink which will allow the windows to rattle noisily. This could also let in cold air. Part of owning a sash window is to routinely check for warping of the wood.
