What Are Flush Casement Windows?
Many homeowners are looking at all possible ways to reduce their energy bills at the moment. With energy efficiency firmly on everyone’s home improvement list this year, selecting the perfect windows and doors for your home has never been more important. If you are considering upgrading your double glazing, the decision can however feel a little overwhelming. There are many different styles and finishes to choose from.
Among Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire homeowners, two of the most popular window types are flush casement and standard casement windows. The question many of our customers are asking us is “Which is better?” We have created this simple guide to help you understand the two different products and help you make the decision on which is best for you and your property.
What Is a Flush Casement Window?
Flush casement windows are designed to look like traditional timber windows. The window sash will sit flush within its frame, hence the name flush casement. The windows do not protrude at all, you will receive a completely flat window surface which can be a more subtle and discreet option.
Due to the traditional feel of the flush window, they are often used for period properties or heritage homes. However, they also look great on modern homes because the design while traditional is timeless.
If you are wanting to enhance the ‘timber’ feel of the windows you can get a woodgrain finish and/or coloured foils which will give the illusion of a painted timber window.
Despite the traditional feel of flush casement windows, they come jam-packed with all the modern technology and practicality that you would expect with uPVC windows.
What Is a Casement Window?
Standard casement windows are one of the most popular choices in the UK. Unlike their flush counterpart, a casement window has a ‘lip’ which protrudes from the frame. Standard casement windows are a perfect option for modern homes, offering a patented multi-chambered profile, co-extruded bubble gasket and thermal dam which acts as a barrier. This makes it difficult for heat inside a property to be transferred through and escape outside.
There are countless ways you can personalise your standard casement windows to get the perfect fit for your home. From colour frames including dual colours, premium hardware and security options as well as Georgian bars, to obscure glass and personalised design. With an extensive range of woodgrain options and sophisticated colours available, you can make your windows look as traditional or as contemporary as you like.
Are Flush Casement Windows Energy Efficient?
With up to 25% of your home’s temperature lost through inefficient windows and doors, energy efficient double glazing can make a real difference to your home – and of course to your energy bills.
It is a well-known fact that older uPVC flush casement windows were not popular due to them being prone to drafts which can often put some customers off choosing them in 2023. The good news is that our modern uPVC profiles are designed to retain the heat as much as possible by creating a thermal barrier through innovative multiple chambers.
Modern double glazing offers a great to help reduce your energy bills and your carbon footprint whilst keeping the temperature in your home pleasant and comfortable.
Are Flush Casement Windows Safer Than Casement Windows?
Whether you opt for flush casement or standard casement windows you will be receiving durable, high-quality windows which will look and function their best even after extensive use.
Our windows are internally beaded, making it virtually impossible for any burglar to remove the pane of glass from the window frame from the exterior of your property. As standard we use quality, upgraded multipoint locking systems built in Britain, to give you peace of mind that you and your family are safe in your home.
Which Window Style Is Better For My Property?
Both window types have their benefits, there isn’t a right or wrong answer when it comes to choosing your window. Flush casement windows are elegant windows and doors that are packed with the characteristics and charm of period timber windows, even down to the tactile woodgrain
finish, but combine this with the advanced low maintenance
qualities associated with modern day uPVC products.
Standard casement windows have been chosen and admired by Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire homeowners for decades. They offer near limitless amount of different configurations, styles and colours to help you create the perfect look to transform your property.
Regardless of whether you choose flush casement windows or casement windows, with Jackson Windows you will enjoy award-winning outstanding quality double glazing products in your home.
