Tampa Casement Windows
Casement windows have been around for centuries, dating back to the end of the Georgian era in the 18th century. While these windows have obviously evolved and improved significantly since that time, they have endured as one of the top window types for Tampa homes to this day. In fact, before sash windows became standard in newly built homes, casement windows were once the prevalent window type. Today, Tampa casement windows are once again gaining in popularity because of the many benefits they offer.
Benefits of Casement Windows in Tampa
Casement windows are more unique than most other modern window types. Rather than sliding open and closed like some of the others, these windows are actually hinged on the side and swing open via a hand crank. Because of this, these windows tend to offer unmatched ventilation, better views, and superior security in comparison to other window types. Simply swing open a casement window and you have top-to–bottom ventilation and ample fresh air coming into your home. Unlike double-hung windows, for example, there typically is no meeting rail or any other type of bar on casement windows, thereby giving you a completely unobstructed view of the outdoors. And since our Tampa casement windows open via a crank on the inside of the house, it’s virtually impossible to open from the exterior of your home, likewise making it virtually impossible for intruders to gain entry into your home via your window. For those inside the house, casement windows are very easy to open with one hand. So, for spots that are hard to reach, such as on a stairwell or over a kitchen sink, these windows are great options. But those are not the only benefits of our casement windows.
Because our Tampa replacement casement windows have a much better seal than other types of windows, due to the use of non-metallic spacer systems and heavy-duty weather stripping, as well as the fusion-welded construction, they offer superior energy efficiency. The argon gas that we use between the layers of glass on our windows, as well as the extremely thin, transparent low emissivity (low-e) coating, help to minimize heat exchange through the windows and thereby help give our windows enhanced energy efficiency. In fact, our windows have earned an ENERGY STAR rating, meaning that we have met strict efficiency, quality, and lifetime criteria as set by the EPA’a ENERGY STAR program.
