Why to Choose Casement Windows for Your Home

When it comes to choosing new windows for your home, there are a lot of different styles to consider and numerous different factors to take into account. Here are a few reasons to think about installing casement windows.


They have a versatile design

One of the major benefits of casement PVCu casement windows is that they can be designed and built to fit all openings. For example, larger openings will likely require two or more window panes to be fitted and hinged at the side to open outwards, whereas a small opening may only require one pane.

Another versatility of casement windows is that they look equally as stylish when incorporated into a traditional building or a contemporary design. Casement windows have been popular for more than a century, however, when built with modern materials, this style of window can still look highly fashionable and cutting edge.


Plenty of choice in terms of colour

White PVCu windows have been the go-to style for well over a decade, but this is by no means the limit. Casement windows are available in wide range of different colours and colour effects, from simple woodgrain effect foils, to bright and bold colours to help your home really stand out. Woodgrain is a popular choice as it creates the effect of timber windows, but without the need for regular maintenance and at a fraction of the cost.



A huge benefit of casement windows is that the large openings mean that they can be used as an exit in the case of a fire or any other time when a door may be blocked. Casement windows can open out wide enough to allow most able people to exit a building with relative ease.


Low maintenance

Modern PVCu casements are extremely easy to maintain, keep clean and in good working order. Whereas traditional timber needs to be treated, stained and varnished on a regular basis to prevent them from being weathered too much, PVCu can be cleaned with nothing more than a soft cloth and some soapy water.


Ease of operation

Most modern casement windows can be operated with one hand. Their latches are fitted with a single lever, making them ideal for areas that are difficult to reach with both hands, such as behind furniture, kitchen work surfaces and sinks.
