Timber windows come in a variety of frame types, from sash to tilt and turn via shaped, listed and, one of the most common, casement. But with numerous options available, understanding the difference between each can be difficult making it hard to decide which frame is best suited to your requirements or needs. Below, we take a closer look at timber casement window frames, which makes them such an outstanding choice and the types of property they suit best.
Bespoke casement windows explained:
Timber casement windows open outwardly like a door due to hinges on either side of the frame. This is often achieved using a cranking system. There are many upsides to installing casement windows over other types of frame, including superior clarity, easy maintenance and better ventilation.
A better view:
Casement windows tend not to have any bars or slats running through the glazing so the view out of the window is entirely unobstructed. This makes Wooden casement windows a perfect choice if you are looking to achieve an “open picture frame” look with the window frames we install.
The added benefit, of course, is that casement windows can still be opened to allow the fresh air in or for good ventilation.
Casement window maintenance:
Due to the way that casement windows open, cleaning the external window pane from the inside is not only possible but is extremely easy. Simply crank the window frame completely open and you can wipe the pane, as well as the timber frame itself, clean with a clean cloth and warm water
Extremely efficient windows:
Timber casement window frames are amongst the most energy-efficient. Unlike other frame types such as sash, there is no track for them to slide up and down. This provides a much tighter seal when completely shut and locked, helping to significantly reduce heat and cold transfer. In addition, timber frames, in general, are outstanding insulators and when paired with double or triple glazing can drastically reduce heat loss, keeping your energy bills down.
Timber casement window frames provide perfect ventilation, especially when they are fully opened as the frame/pane pushes fresh air gently through the open space. In addition, the way in which the frames are hinged allows you to control just how far you would like them to open, from just a small gap to fully wide. There are other benefits to installing timber casement windows, including being able to choose various styles and finishes for your frames.
Here at Bailey Hague Joinery Ltd Leeds, we offer a spectrum of colour choices, including the option to opt for different interior and external colours. We also have a variety of different casement window frame types including:
•Flush Casement Windows – finish flush with the face of the window and are characterised by openers that close into the frame.
•Lipped Casement Windows – which feature rebated openers which lip over/overlap the front face of the window frame. The lipped style of casement has origins in Britain dating to the 1950s
•Tilt and Turn casement windows – which are a style which operates on a dual-hinge mechanism that allows the window to tilt from the bottom opening into the room from the side and top which provides secure ventilation.
Casement windows will work on all types of property:
While some timber window frames are better suited to traditional period homes and other more modern buildings, casement windows are ideally suited to all types of homes and properties.
This includes barn conversions and country cottages right through to Edwardian and Georgian houses and new builds.
