Casement Window Advantages

Casement windows have several advantages that make them very attractive for buyers. The most important of which is how much open area you get when the window is opened. This allows for tons of ventilation and tends to lend itself to a more narrow frame than other styles.

As well, casements have better compression seals than other movable window types such as single hung or awnings (if you are comparing a similarly quality window). The result is better performance numbers and a more comportable home, especially as the windows age.

Casement Window Disadvantages

Casements will typically run 10% to 20% more than fixed windows because the hardware and crank adds to the cost of the window. Any movable window has more parts, which means more potential problems and repairs. A good quality casement shouldn't have seal or component failure though.
