Energy-efficient replacement windows are available in many different configurations. Two of the most common replacement windows are double-hung and casement windows. Double-hung windows are very popular because they consist of two sashes and can be opened from either the top or the bottom. Casement windows are operated by cranks. Keep reading to learn more about the differences between these two types of windows.

I almost forgot! I have been trying to find a competent carpet cleaning service in Dundas earlier in the week and my research led me to Here is the site of Multiline Services. They're a cleaning service situated in Ontario. I decided to save my readers some trouble should they find themselves searching for the same. These people were great to do business with. Now, back to it.

Styles and Operation

A double-hung window is easy to operate, visually appealing, and low-maintenance. Often constructed of vinyl frames that save energy and require little care, these windows have many advantages. For instance, their sashes can be tilted inward for easy cleaning of the window glass without having to go outside of your home.

Casement replacement windows operate horizontally, and can be installed so they open on the left or right side, depending on how the homeowner wants them to be oriented. They tilt outwards with the manual operation of a hand crank, and are common in many older homes, so replacement windows can easily be installed in the place of pre-existing casement windows.

Treatments and Placement Options

Window treatments for both of these types of windows can be similar, with vertical shades, blinds, or drapes allowing for easy access and light control. Casement windows are often found in kitchen areas, where they can be opened quickly for ventilation but space is a premium. In the kitchen, they can be treated with short valences to allow plenty of natural light into the room. Casement windows often abut picture windows or bay windows.

Double-hung windows can be installed just about anywhere in your home, and are a good "standard" window. Of course, both casement and double-hung windows work well throughout the homeit only depends upon your preferences, your home's architecture, and available space.
