Casement Wood Windows Installation in Pittsburgh, PA
Casement Wood Replacement Windows
Wood casement windows offer light, warmth, and air. They’re attached to a frame by hinges that are placed on the side, allowing them to swing out. They are opened and closed using a crank or handle, and add a touch of charm to a house.
You don’t hear much about wood casement windows anymore, but we’re here to tell you that they are an excellent choice for your home.
- They’re great to use for hard-to-reach spots such as over the kitchen or bathroom sink. Instead of trying to lean over the sink to open a double hung window, just pull the crank to open the window.
- They provide excellent ventilation. If you know which way the wind is coming from, you can open the sash in a particular direction. The sashes can be positioned so that a strong breeze comes through. Also, casement windows can be opened nearly the whole way—no other window can do that.
- They are airtight. No other window seals better than a casement window. Once they are locked, they are nearly impenetrable, and no air will get through. When you couple that with the fact that your window will also have energy-efficient glass, you will save thousands on utility bills over the years. Wood casement windows are very popular in windy areas because they can direct air into the house but also are weather tight.
