Casement window replacement in the Twin Cities is on the rise. If you are thinking about replacing your windows, here are seven reasons why you, too, should consider them.
1. Energy Efficiency
Casement windows are the most energy-efficient type of operable window. When closed, an airtight seal is formed between the sash and frame. No air leakage means no drafts and lower energy bills.
2. High Security
It is virtually impossible to break into casement windows because their locking mechanisms are inside their frames.
Because of their sturdy frames and simple construction, casement windows are highly durable and require minimum maintenance.
4. Variety of Designs
Twin Cities Zen Windows provides you with many options for casement window colors and grid pattern styles. See our Styles & Options page. Also be aware that casement windows can be installed either as single windows or as part of a bay or bow window.
5. Good Ventilation
Casement windows crank fully outward thanks to their side hinges. That means more airflow and even an emergency exit if necessary.
6. Easy to Open and Close
Because of their attractive cranks and latches, casement windows are very easy to open and close. Some models have single-lever latches while others have tandem latches, but an automatic opener can be installed on most windows if you desire.
7. Easy to Clean
Casement windows can be installed in any room and are particularly popular in kitchens above sinks or countertops since they are so easy to clean. They pivot on their hinges when you open them, giving you plenty of room to reach through to clean the outsides.
