Replacement Casement and Awning Windows
Window Installation Services and More in Forest Park, OH, Hamilton, OH, and Greater Cincinnati, OH
Whether you are designing a new home or upgrading your current one, when it comes to your windows, you have a lot of options to choose from. Two popular types of windows are casement and awning, both of which open outward, making it easy to let fresh air into your home.
If you need replacement windows installed in your home and are considering casement or awning windows, contact JFK Window & Door. We are located in Forest Park, OH, and provide our services to homeowners throughout the Greater Cincinnati area.
The casement window sash pivots to the right or left and is perfect for any room in the house.
One of the best places for your casement window is over the kitchen sink. Here are a couple reasons why.
A Casement Window Offers an Unobstructed View
No matter your height, you can stand at the sink and see out the window with nothing blocking your view. As an Andersen Excellence dealer, we recommend Andersen casement windows. The casement profile is narrower compared to other national window brands and styles.
The narrow profiles give you the most glass area for the space you have. The best product for the best view is Andersen's TruScene screen. Almost invisible, this screen gives you a view that's almost looking out a clear piece of glass.
A Casement Window Opens Easily
You open a casement window with a handle found on the bottom of the window. Reaching for the handle is much easier than using both hands to lift up a double-hung sash. Do you have a double hung over your kitchen sink? Consider upgrading to a casement to have the perfect view and easy to open access.
Like casement windows, awning windows swing outward, away from the frame, creating a convenient way to let fresh air in. However, unlike casement windows, awning windows open upward. If you like to keep your windows open during a light rainstorm, these windows make it possible to do so while still keeping the inside of your home dry.
Andersen's awning sashes are completely wrapped in vinyl. The benefit is that your window doesn't have any exposed wood on the outside of the unit. That vinyl-wrapped sash gives you peace of mind in a rainstorm that your window is protected.
These windows are often placed above other windows, including casement windows. And awning windows are usually wider than they are tall.
