Elegant and Energy-Efficient Casement Windows for Homes in Cincinnati, OH
If you like the idea of swinging your windows open to welcome fresh air into your home, then casement windows might be the perfect choice for you. If you’re in the Cincinnati, Ohio, area, you can get lovely casement windows with ultra-sturdy fiberglass frames from the window replacement experts at Holmes Custom Renovations. We’re an authorized dealer for Infinity®, the premium line of windows from Marvin, a manufacturer with a reputation for delivering unrivaled innovation and craftsmanship.
Casement Window Basics
Unlike windows that slide vertically or horizontally to open and close, casement windows are hinged at one side and open like a door. They are often installed over kitchen sinks or bathroom tubs, or in other hard-to-reach places because many homeowners find them easier to operate than sliding windows. Most replacement casement windows come with hand cranks located in the rail of the window frame, thus allowing for easy access.
Some of the other advantages provided by casement windows include:
Adaptability to Almost Any Architectural Style
As one of the first window styles, casement windows have been gracing homes for centuries, and they’re the perfect choice for just about any classic style of home architecture, including colonial and Tudor. This is especially true if the replacement casement windows you choose are crafted with a traditional grille pattern.
On the other hand, casement windows are also tall and sleek. If the sash boasts an expanse of glass that’s unbroken by grids, replacement casement windows can coordinate well with more modern home styles—even those inspired by the minimalist movement.
Infinity’s casement-style replacement windows come with exceptionally large glass panes, and they’re available with and without grilles or divided lite patterns so you can match your other windows and glass doors or choose a new look that’s just right for your home.
What’s more, if you’d like to dramatically boost your home’s curb appeal, you can opt for casement windows installed on either side of a picture window to create a bay window configuration.
Remarkable Energy Efficiency
Unlike other operable window styles, casement windows feature sashes that press tightly against the window frame when closed. This creates a practically impenetrable seal against outside air. In fact, because of their design, casement windows are the most energy-efficient windows available other than picture windows that don’t open at all.
This feature makes replacement casement windows a great choice for Cincinnati homeowners who want to enjoy year-round savings on their climate control costs.
Casement windows can be opened at various angles to control the amount of airflow into your home and direct it where you want it to go.
Deterrence Against Break-Ins
Casement windows are among the most burglary-resistant windows you can get. They open only from the inside, so when they’re securely fastened and locked, they present a formidable barrier to any would-be intruder. Moreover, when you choose Infinity casement windows, they’ll come with a multi-point locking system for added security.
