Casement windows, also known as crank or hinged windows, are a popular style of windows that are designed for expansive views and ventilation. Casement windows are hinged on one side and can swing inwards or outwards by cranking out, pushing, or pulling the window hardware until the desired position is reached. Replacement casement windows have many innovative features, such as retractable screens and interior shades to make the task of washing windows easier and safer. Our casement windows are available in various sizes up to 3.5 feet wide or 10 feet wide.

Types of Casement Windows
Single frame casement windows
With just one frame and pane typically separated by wooden strips, this is the most common type of casement window. It is an affordable crank window style that is durable and offers great ventilation.
Double frame casement windows
Double frame casement windows are sometimes called French casement windows and feature two frames hinged on opposite sides that open from the center. They tend to be more costly than single frame casement windows but provide excellent views due to the absence of a center bar that can obstruct views, are low-maintenance, and offer an emergency exit route.
Push-out casement windows
Push-out casement windows can feature a single or double style and require the use of a handle rather than a crank for operation. These windows are easy to clean, require minimal hardware to install, and achieve a clean and classic style.

An insert replacement involves placing a new window in the existing frame after the old hardware, sash, and covers are removed. This is also known as frame-in-frame installation and a good option if your existing wood or aluminum frame is structurally sound.
The process of completely removing an existing window down to the studs and replacing it with a new casement window is called full frame replacement. This is a more extensive installation process and typically comes at a higher cost than insert replacement.

Tempered Glass is often used in bathrooms for safety reasons. The panels are heated and then cooled rapidly in a controlled environment, making the glass several times stronger than regular glass.
Tempered Glass is Ideal for use over bathtubs and in showers where if glass were to shatter, it will break into small pieces so as not to harm any occupants. Tempered glass is used in cars for the same reason.
