San Diego has the unique distinction of having beautiful weather pretty much year-round. San Diego customers should keep that in mind when considering what type of replacement windows to put in their homes. Casement windows are second only to patio doors in the amount of fresh air and sunlight they let into a house, allowing you to enjoy the San Diego climate even when you are indoors.
A casement window usually contains a single glass panel that is hinged on one side and opens outward like a door (not to be confused with an awning window that is hinged at the top and opens upward). Casement windows are operated with an easy-to-use crank. Typically, a casement window can be opened up to 90 degrees from the building, allowing for a great amount of airflow into your home.
Casement windows have several unique benefits. They allow for a large viewing area, since they are made up of only one panel of glass, and you will have a virtually unobstructed view of the outdoors with a casement window. They also provide excellent ventilation, since the entire window is operable. In addition, even large casement windows are easy to open, since they use a crank mechanism, rather than having to be slid open. Casement windows are available in standard and custom sizes, with several colors and hardware options to choose from.
“The manufacturers we use to provide windows for our San Diego customers are some of the best in the business. All of the windows we install, including casement windows, are energy-efficient, containing insulated glass units and fusion-welded corners. New replacement windows can be a great investment over the lifetime of your home by saving you money on your monthly energy bills. In addition, vinyl replacement windows can modernize and beautify your home.
