Casement and awning windows are the most popular replacement choices for Canadian homeowners due to their exceptional energy efficiency, excellent ventilation capabilities, and easy cleaning.
The hinged design creates an airtight seal when the sash closes against the window frame and prevents air leaks. The whole window opens with casement and awning styles to allow fresh air inside and provide superior ventilation capabilities.
An operable casement window is hinged on the side and opens outward (left or right, depending on preference) with a crank handle. It is designed with a lot of glass area to provide an unobstructed view. It also offers great ventilation and easy cleaning.
The casement fixed window is actually a combination window with both operable and stationary windows. The operable casement can open right or left, depending on preference, while the fixed unit offers a completely unobstructed view of the outside.
Replacement vinyl awning windows are similar to casement windows but the hinged side is at the top and it opens outward from the bottom. This design provides exceptional ventilation as well as protection from the rain as it can be kept open and shed water down the glass instead of inside.
