CASE­MENT

Timber Home Living - - Finish -

WHAT THEY ARE: Case­ment win­dows are hinged at the side and crank open, usu­ally to a full 90 de­grees.

PROS: Case­ments are the eas­i­est to op­er­ate, of­fer the best view, al­low the most air­flow and cre­ate the tight­est seal for en­ergy-ef­fi­ciency. CONS: They can get dam­aged if left open in the rain, are not a good choice for high-traf­fic ar­eas like decks and pa­tios, and lack the mid­dle rails and other de­sign fea­tures of sin­gle- and dou­ble­hung win­dows.
