Casement Windows Explained


You've started exploring the world of potential window replacements, knowing that the day will soon come when you absolutely need to get rid of your old windows. Old or damaged windows can cost you hundreds of dollars on your energy bills and make living in your home an uncomfortable experience.

 

So you need to figure out what the right window options are for you. Which means you need to know what the windows you already have are called and what the available replacement options are. After all, when it comes to your home and your quality of life you should always make an informed decision.

 

There are a wide variety of window styles to discuss, but let's start with casement windows, one of the more popular options available today.

 

What Are Casement Windows?

 

Casement windows are windows that you open with a crank. Their hinges can be either on the left side or on the right side and they usually open outwards. These windows are commonly tall and skinny and are built into many new suburban homes.

 

What Are the Benefits of Casement Windows?

 

Since casement windows are opened with a crank or handle, your window is always easy to open. These windows provide the best ventilation. Even double hung windows still have a covered area when they're fully open, meaning air can't get through. A casement window opens more completely than most other window styles.

Love our new windows and doors. We had all our windows replaced on the main floor, side door and front door, as well as the storm doors. The installation team was great. They removed the existing awning and were really great at cleaning up after the work. There were a couple of issues after the install, but the after sales service team of Alex and Walter were able to resolve it promptly. Great advice from Walter about keeping the humidity inside the house to maintain the windows, and also how to operate them properly. And thanks very much Alex and team for buying the doorbell and installing it for us, as well as fixing the bottom part of the door frames to cover holes on the flooring. Appreciate all your hard work and for going the extra mile. Will definitely recommend your company to friends, neighbors and family.

NorthShield did an excellent job with our house. They were the lowest price our of 4 companies I contacted for quotes. The windows look beautiful, and the molding is very well done. The installation was very quick, they replaced all of the windows in our house in about 4 hours. They cleaned up everything completely afterwards inside and outside, you can't even tell they were here! Very professional, very high quality installation, materials and work. I would highkly recommend them.

Likely a good company for windows, installers seemed competent. However for doors they seemed to have much less experience. My salesman left the company midway through the process and I wasn't informed, and turns out some miscommunication between him and I led to a product I didn't want. The door is nice, just not what I had thought I ordered, and it took about 4 months to get, so I accepted it. The paint also chipped after they left, which leaves a bad feeling (even though that's more of a manufacturer issue than NorthShield issue). I'm not saying these guys are going to be bad for you, but I'm not thrilled with my result. REPLY December 5, 2018: I had called about the paint chip and wrong door options already at the time and was told there was no recourse for me. The paint chip was there when I came home from work after the door was installed, but you provided a picture the installers took before the paint was chipped, so at that time I was told there was no recourse. The wrong options I was told was due to a salesman who took my order having left the company, and there was no paperwork showing my chosen option (no door handle hole to be cut). I will call again tomorrow and update this with the results of that conversation.

Alex and the team at north shield were amazing. Great customer service, along with a great team of installers. North shield replaced my 2 front living room windows in 1 day. They even took away my awning! Highly recommended

Very professional workers that despite finding, no vapor barrier and wood rot on our deck, fixed it right and continued to install our very beautiful door and side light without complaint.
