Casement Window Materials
UPVC Casement Windows
The UPVC casement is still the most cost effective option for your windows and also benefits from incredible strength and durability.
Timber Casement Windows
Timber Casement Windows are ideal for conservation areas such as Kensington, Chelsea, Richmond, Knightsbridge etc. Perfect for more traditional properties.
Aluminium Windows benefit from the longest life span, meaning you won't have to replace them for many years.

What is it about these longstanding favourites that still make them such a great choice?
Versatility and Classic Style Combined
Casement windows have a classic design that can be hinged at the side or the top and will usually be fitted in single or double panels. The windows are attached to the frame by at least one hinge and are operated using a lever or crank mechanism.
They are available in a range of configurations such as single or double panels, to suit different properties and windows. Side-hung casement windows that are side-hinged with the window swinging outwards to open are the most popular, but a range of alternative styles are available.
Double frame windows, sometimes known as French casement, consist of two panels that are both side hung. The window will feature a central mullion with the window handles meeting in the centre. The panes open outwards to create a large opening.
Other options include top or bottom-hung windows, flush casements with a sleek frame where the window sits flush in the frame when it’s closed, and fixed casement windows that don’t open. A sliding casement window replaces the hinge with a sliding mechanism. Casement windows come in a range of sizes, with large casement windows being a popular choice for added light. Triple casement windows are a way to elegantly divide larger window spaces.
Maximising Light and Ventilation
The simplicity and appeal of casement windows have stood the test of time due to a range of factors. Casement windows allow homeowners to maximise the amount of light in their homes while allowing for effective control of ventilation levels. They provide unobstructed views of the outside world, helping to create bright and airy living environments.
With slim, unobtrusive frames, they allow more natural light to flood into the room. This makes them an excellent choice for the UK, where shorter winter days can make homes gloomy. Casement timber windows are a popular choice in period properties, while newer homes may prefer the easy care and maintenance of UPVC casement windows.
