Casement Window Installation and Replacement

Casement windows swing out to the side by cranking a knob or turning a handle. They are hinged either to the right or to the left depending on the configuration and ventilation preferences. Casements are commonly called hinged or crank out windows. These types of windows are commonly enjoyed during the summer months as they are good for maximum ventilation since they open the entire height of the window.

Advantages of Casement Windows

Excellent Ventilation

Casement windows are the perfect option for the warmer months because of their ability to open across the entire height of the window. By positioning the windows in a way that the wind blows across the house, brings a cooling effect during the summer. At different angles, you can regulate the ventilation of your home, reducing the use of an AC system, and save you money. Casement windows also come in wide variety of sizes, but may be limited by size, weight, and the ability of the hinges to hold and support them.

Ease of Operation

Casements are easily opened and closed by simply cranking the tensioner knob inwards or outwards which adjusts the window stay. Full screens are conveniently located on the inside and stay cleaner as they are not exposed to the harsh weather conditions on the outside of your home. Rather than hinged like a door, when fully extended, our casement window pivots toward the center which allows you to easily clean your window exterior safely from the inside of your home. In addition, this pivoting action increases ventilation capabilities.

More Natural Light

Casement windows are the equivalent of an operable picture window and do not have horizontal or vertical sash rails that are common in double hung windows. This creates a much more open feel and modern look.

Easier to Clean

Casement windows are designed to easily open and close with crank of a knob or twist of a handle. Because they are so easily opened, this makes them easier to wash from the inside and outside.

Drawbacks of Casement Windows

Relatively Expensive

In most cases, homeowners pair casement windows with other window installation projects such as bay windows or picture windows. As such, the overall cost can be slightly higher than that of a double hung or sliding window. Regardless of the windows your home needs, Window Concepts works with you to get you a flexible financing package the perfectly suits your needs.

Size Limitations

Casement windows are only as durable as their hardware, and because they crank open to the left or right that means there are limits to how large and heavy these windows can become. Most casements come in widths up to 3 feet wide and widths up to 6 feet tall.

Casement Windows Or Double Hung Windows?

If you are looking for replacement windows for your home, the first thing any homeowner must know is the difference between the two most popular window styles, casement and double hung.

How casement and double hung operate

If you are looking for replacement windows for your home, the first thing any homeowner must know is the difference between the two most popular window styles, casement and double hung.


Both windows are easy to operate and easy to clean. The double hung windows will tile in while the casement opened 90 degrees. Both can be cleaned from the inside.

Energy Efficiency / Ventilation

Both casement and double hung windows provide excellent ventilation. The true test of determining which to buy is determined by the side of the house the window is likely to be placed on. If the casement cranks open and the glass blocks the wind the ventilation may be reduced, and a double hung might provide a better benefit. The wind also impacts energy efficiency. Double hung windows have two moving sashes compared to one open and closed seal in a casement. Casement windows are simpler in design and have the benefit of when it is windy the seal strength increases.

Casement Windows (FAQ) - Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions (casement windows FAQ) we've answered dover the years about replacing and installing windows.

Casement windows are common home windows and are commonly called crank out windows. They are elegant windows which are made with hardware, either knobs or handles, which crank or push the window along a hinge opening to the left or right at a 90-degree angle. They are usually constructed with solid glass and screens and may contain grilles for added aesthetic value.

If you are stuck choosing between a casement and a double hung, it’s hard to make a wrong choice. The difference between a casement and a double hung window is the mechanism in which they operate. Casement windows will crank open to the left or right to a 90-degree angle, while double hung windows slide up and down. The most important thing to consider between these is the side of the house you are installing them on and the direction in which the wind blows. If the wind would blow against the casement and block the airflow, a double hung may be a better option. Whereas, if the air would be stagnant around the double hung, while the opened casement catches and redirects the wind that would be a better choice.

Simply put, yes, it is common for homeowners to have an existing double hung window and replace it with a new casement window. The same happens the other way around as well. Both casement and double hung windows are great options and we see many homeowners switch between them for a change of scenery.

A fully installed casement window including materials, labor, and disposal of the old material typically is in the range of $500 per window. This can increase or decrease depending on the size, decoration, and condition of the existing window frame.
