What is a casement window?

cleaning a casement window

Casement windows are an ideal option for homeowners hoping to lower their energy bill. Known as an excellent option for Topeka energy-efficient window replacement, these windows use a crank for opening and closing.

A casement window uses a single sash on a vertical axis to open outward when the crank is rotated. The sash can open up to a full 90 degrees, so you can quickly and easily clean them while remaining inside your home. Join multiple sections together into a single unit with two, three, or four casement windows. Using a single lever, the units close tightly with multiple lock points for convenience, safety, and security.
