What’s the Difference Between Casement and Awning Windows?

There are many different styles of window you can choose from when it comes to window replacements for your Toronto home. If you’ve only just started looking for window replacements, the terms can be tricky to navigate and remember. You’re just getting used to the concept of vinyl windows—you probably never thought much about your window frames before you decided it was time to get them replaced.

You might remember what the real estate agent said about the windows when you bought the house, but you’re not sure you want to stick with the same kind of windows you already have. Either way, to make an informed decision, you need to know what your options are.

Two of the most popular options are casement windows and awning windows, which are similar but have a couple key differences.

Casement windows are usually tall and narrow. These windows are opened with a handle that faces the inside of the room and always open outwards. Unlike many other window options casement windows open all the way, allowing for maximum ventilation. They’re a great option for narrow rooms and provide an excellent view. Casement windows tend to look best in contemporary-style homes. To learn about the casement window styles available from Quantum Windows and Doors, give us a call today at 905-695-5100.

Awning windows are easily opened and shut with a handle, similar to casement windows. Awning windows are short, wide and open upwards. This makes awning windows great for rainy climates because you can have the window open without letting in the rain. They’re also really great for places that are difficult to reach like above the kitchen sink. Want to know more about the awning window options available from Quantum Windows and Doors? Give us a call today at 905-695-5100.

Choosing the right windows is incredibly important and there are more options than can be discussed in a single article. What’s more, it’s always a good idea to get some professional guidance.

When you call Quantum Windows and Doors for your window replacements, we’ll start by guiding you through the decision making process. We’ll even come to your house and provide a free consultation where we’ll walk you through all the different options and give you a free estimate based on measurements taken in your home.
