A casement window from Rusco is a great option for adding light and fresh air to move through your home. Casement windows can be used above the sink, in a basement or any other room in your home. They are hinged on the side and open outward using a crank handle. Our updated technology makes the crank handle very easy to use. You can even add a screen to your new casement window to prevent insects from getting in. The screen can be rolled up when you want an unobstructed view.
How They’re Different
Casement windows open like a door, to the left or right. But, instead of a knob they are operated by a crank that turns to swing open the window. Casement windows offer fantastic insulation and often close air tight.
This comes in handy if you live in an area that experiences rain or storms often. Casement windows are weather tight because their seal meets the sash right on for airtight closure. Casement windows must have screens of the inside because they open at an outward angle. They’re incredible at delegating airflow into your home and can act like a chute to pull a cool breeze into your house.
Not everyone is a huge fan of casement windows though. Many people do not appreciate the additional mechanical parts (such as the crank shaft). The parts are handled often which means they have a high likelihood of breaking from repeated use. Casement windows are more exposed to environmental elements like rain, snow and sun because they open outwards. This may increase the wear-and-tear process.
