Casement windows are one of the more common window styles and a practical choice for any home. These windows are hung at the sides and swing outwards to allow superior ventilation control within your home. They work well in combination with other types of windows, particularly double-hung or picture windows.
If you are looking for energy-efficient windows, then casement windows are one of the best styles to select. The sash of casement windows creates a strong seal when closed, while also allowing you to ventilate from the side of the window. Casement windows are very versatile and can fit in any room, due to their relative ease of use.
When selecting casement windows for your home, the team at Bavarian can offer you superior craftsmanship, custom options, and friendly service.
Casement Window Styles
Casement windows replaced stone mullioned windows at the end of the 18th century. Back then, they were hand-crafted using iron and small panes of glass.
Since those times, casement window styles have come a long way with what is possible. They are now available in a wide range of sizes, colours, and pane options. Some common casements window styles include:
- Push-Out Windows: A folding lever is used to push the window outward to open.
- In-Swing French Windows (Double Casement Windows): A casement window crack moves inwards to pull the windows inside to open.
- Common Post Windows: A central post is shared by two windows on either side.

Casement Window Lock
To open or close a window, most units have a casement window locking handle or a casement window crank. These are used to manually open or close these types of windows and come in a variety of colours and finishes.
Casement windows will typically be outfitted with an automatic casement window lock, a press lock, or a swing lock. These types of windows are very sturdy and effective against intruders, making them a great choice for security.
How Do I Know If I Need a Casement Window Replacement?
While there are many reasons to replace your casement windows, here are the most common situations that homeowners experience:
- Wooden casements showing signs of rot and/or mould.
- Window sashes require constant fixing.
- Single-paned windows, from before 1978, may have lead-based paint.
- Strong drafts, which may indicate an improperly sized window.
- Older hinges, which may not open wide enough to meet fire codes.
Make sure that you’re not heating the outdoors with faulty casement windows. Get them replaced for a more energy efficient home with improved aesthetics.
