When you’re planning a window replacement, you’re probably thinking of buying the same type of windows but of better quality. While this makes the replacement process easy, it doesn’t mean you’ll see an improvement in your home’s overall efficiency. If you’re looking to maximize performance while enhancing your home’s value, casement windows are your best choice.
Why Should You Get Casement Windows?
Casement windows are available in a wide variety of designs, sizes and materials. You can have them combined as part of a larger window installation depending on your home’s design, and they’re designed to be energy-efficient and secure at the same time. Other windows that have a traditional sash can be pried open, but the airtight seal from casement windows is much more secure. They’re even used as egress windows in case of a fire or other emergencies.
What Are Their Advantages?
So long as they’re installed properly by a window replacement contractor, you can greatly benefit from a newly replaced casement window. Some of the best advantages include:
Better ventilation – Casement windows can be opened on one side and offer excellent ventilation for your living space. Their open sash acts as a flap to catch side breezes and redirect them into your home’s interiors!
Bigger views – If you want to enjoy a great view of your landscape, you won’t go wrong with casement windows. This is because they don’t feature a lot of muntins (strips that divide the glass panes) that may otherwise obstruct the view outside. With casement windows, you get a seamless and picturesque view of nature and the outdoors
