US Window & Door offers a wide variety of new and replacement window designs and styles that are perfect for San Diego living including casement windows.
A casement window is hinged at one side and opens outward similar to a door. It looks almost like a picture window because unlike double hung or sliding windows, a casement window has no rail. Usually taller than wide, their entire sash opens to provide top-to-bottom ventilation.
Some casement windows are simply pushed open, but most have a hand crank to open and close them. They are opened with this crank which is placed around hand height (or at the bottom) and also serves as a window lock. The crank is necessary when the window opens outward, as it helps to hold the window in position despite outside elements like strong winds.
However you call them, either “casement windows, “crank windows,” or “awning windows”, they are a popular choice because they provide clear, unobstructed views outside. Because these windows open and close easily with the turn of a handle crank, they’re also a great option for spots that are difficult to reach, like over a kitchen sink or wide countertop.
Choose from several different Milgard casement window models and material types to best fit your home’s needs. Among them include the Montecito, Tuscany, Ultra, WoodClad, Style Line, Quiet Line, and Essence series. Windows can be made from fiberglass, wood, a blend of fiberglass and wood, and aluminum.
Aluminum casement windows are quite popular. These durable windows were developed to address specific design requirements – not as simply a low-cost alternative to other material options. As a result, all Milgard aluminum windows have the flexibility to suit a multitude of projects ranging from custom homes to light commercial applications.
