Casement windows have a single sash and are hinged on the side, with a hand crank that opens the window vertically on a metal track. Because they’re so easy to open, casement windows are a great choice for hard-to-reach places, such as over countertops and sinks.

Benefits of Casement Windows
There are several benefits of casement windows, whether you get fiberglass, vinyl clad or anything else. Some of the most important benefits include:
- Casement windows fully open – Unlike windows that slide open partway, casement windows open completely, allowing a nice breeze into your home if you prefer that over running your AC in the summer.
- Casement windows provide added break-in prevention – Locks on casement windows are embedded into the frame. This provides enhanced safety and security.
- Casement windows are very energy efficient – On average, casement windows are the second most energy efficient type of window, after fixed-pane windows. When closed, casement windows have an airtight seal, preventing unwanted air flow into and out of the house.
- Casement windows open easily – Casement windows open easily with a crank, making them ideal for hard to reach areas.
