An introduction to flush casement windows
UPVC double glazed windows have come on leaps and bounds in recent years. Not so long ago, most UPVC double glazed windows tended to look the same. But these days, there’s a wealth of choice for customers to choose.
It’s great to have such a range to choose from. But it also opens up lots of questions about whether you are choosing the right windows for your home.
In this blog we’ll look at flush casement windows. We hope it will help you decide if flush casement windows are right for your home.
What are UPVC flush casement windows?
Think for a moment about an original timber casement window in a typical period home. The image that comes to mind is probably of a beautifully understated window with flush lines inside and out. You may also have thought about the problems with timber casement windows. They need a lot of maintenance to keep them looking good. Older timber windows might well be draughty and not keep a home very warm.
Now think about a UPVC casement window. The image that probably comes to mind is of a win
dow with frames that overlap each other. You’ll probably also think about a window that is easy to maintain and keeps your home warmer than a timber equivalent.
A UPVC flush casement window is a combination of these two windows. It has the beautifully understated flush lines of a timber casement window. It also has all the energy efficiency and low maintenance benefits of a UPVC casement window. In fact, you’re likely to find that they’re easier to keep clean than standard casement windows. This is because their flush lines mean there are fewer places for dust and dirt to get trapped.
Which types of home do UPVC flush casement windows suit?
UPVC flush casement windows are very versatile and they look good in many different types of home. It means there is no right or wrong answer here – their classic lines sit comfortably in homes of all ages and types.
UPVC flush casement windows look beautiful in heritage and period houses that would have had timber casement windows originally. In home like these, they bring back original aesthetics.
They also look great in modern homes because their elegant appearance adds an extra layer of visual interest.
