An attractive, popular, and highly functional window design is the casement window. A casement window is hinged on the side and opens outward using a crank, either to the left or right. Casement windows are commonly used for an excellent top to bottom ventilation and lighting such as above the kitchen sink. But, a more modern approach is pairing them on both sides of a large plate glass window or a custom-designed architectural window. At RVW Ltd we can help you choose the most attractive, energy-efficient, and cost-effective windows for your home or office in Calgary.
Today’s vinyl casement windows are energy efficient for a cold Alberta winter as well as beautiful. They fit well into any architectural setting to provide elegance as well as functionality. A beveled exterior sash design allows for a slim window but the appearance of a larger glass area. Our vinyl casement windows will open with a right or left crank handle to 90 degrees for optimal ventilation on a warm summer day. And the same window will be double or triple-paned for energy efficiency and reduction of outside noises. These are very secure windows with top-notch locking systems.
The vinyl casement windows we offer at RVW Ltd come in a broad range of trim options. The finishes on these windows are attractive and when chosen correctly will complement the interior and exterior of your home. Made from durable materials these beautiful finishes will maintain their attractive colors for many years. From a wide range of wood stains, classic and contemporary rosettes, to custom colours for your unique setting, your windows will enhance the style of your home both inside and out.
A standard vinyl casement window has a double pane of clear class for optimal lighting combined with excellent outside noise reduction and better energy efficiency than a single pane window. But, it gets better with options such as Low-E glass designed to reduce home heating bills during a Calgary winter and optimally transmit natural light. When you really want to stay warm all winter and do so efficiently, triple glass vinyl casement windows from RVW Ltd are a great option. These windows can come with a Low-E coating as well!
Depending on where a casement window is located in your home, you may prefer the left or right-sided opening window. All vinyl casement windows come with a left or right-side crank control. An excellent option when you want the best view of the Canadian Rockies from your living room window is to preserve as much “viewing space” as possible with a large central window and then flank it on both sides with attractive vinyl casement windows for ventilation when desired.
Other nice options include fold-down crank handles, push-down screens, and a reinforcement bar. All of our vinyl casement windows at RVW Ltd can feature a sturdy multi-point lock for added security when the window is left open. The multi-chamber frames of our vinyl casement windows help reduce condensation and mildew build-up as well as reducing outside noises. A nice optional feature is to use thermal insulation within these chambers to optimize energy efficiency.
