Open Your Kitchen Window with Ease
Tired of straining to reach over the kitchen sink to open your window, or if you are like me climbing into the sink to push up the window sash. Not a pretty sight. A great solution is to change out that double hung window to a casement window.
Here are some commonly asked questions about Casement Windows:
What is a Casement Window?
A casement window is attached to its frame by one or more hinges at the side. Casement windows are often held open using a casement stay. They can be singly (think of it as opening a door) or in pairs (like opening French doors) within the frame. Opening with the turn of handle located at the bottom of the window. You could also have Windows hinged at the top referred to as awning windows, and ones hinged at the bottom are called hoppers. Casement windows are excellent for natural ventilation, especially in hot climates. They can be hinged to open outward and angled to direct breezes into your home.
