Casement windows are a great choice for any home. They offer versatility and efficiency, and the fact that they can be made from wood makes them an even more attractive option. There are seven distinct types of windows casement available, each providing unique benefits. On this page, we’ll explore each of the seven types of casement windows made from wood, so that you can decide which one is right for your home.

They are considered to be one of the safest options due to them being double glazed windows. Ours come with durable wood protection and top of the range, rust proof, multi point locking systems, which have passed stringent testing.
The distinguishing feature of this window is that the openers are flush with the frame on the outside; usually showing off a traditional putty style beading, to maintain the look of putty.
The windows casement features a single opener with two panes of glass, creating an effective barrier that prevents outside noise, weather and energy loss. These double-glazed windows also provide additional security to your home, as they are harder to break into than single-pane windows; and as I said, ours come with superior locking mechanisms. Additionally, they are aesthetically pleasing, making them perfect for both modern and traditional homes.

Stormproof windows are ideal for areas that experience extreme weather conditions, as they are designed to remain in place even under strong winds and heavy rainfall.
These wooden windows are double glazed and have an overlapping opener on the outside, meaning they provide additional protection against inclement weather. With a double gasket design, storm proof windows are not only stronger than their single-gasket counterparts but also provide superior soundproofing, thermal insulation, and increased security.
Not only do they keep your home safe from the elements, but they can also add value to your property. The downside is they look a little like PVC because of the overlapping openers!
Storm Proof casement windows feature a double gasket weather proofing system. Differing from the flush casement, this storm proof window has overlapping openers on the outside, which makes it more weather proof and more secure.
Mock Sash timber casement windows offer an economical solution to sash windows. This type of window only has the top half open and swing outward, while the bottom part is fixed but with the same sight lines as a sash window. So they look alike from a distance.
As the bottom half is not movable, Mock Sash timber casement windows have an improved level of security compared to other traditional wooden windows, though they are not the best solution for a fire escape!
The fact that the bottom half does not move also means that it provides superior air-tightness and improved energy efficiency, as well as greater levels of comfort and control. With their equal sight lines, these types of windows are an ideal solution to save some money, and they even come with decorative sash horns on the outside to replicate the sash windows!
This is actually a Storm Proof casement window; but it is designed to imitate the appearance of a traditional sash window, for a fraction of the cost. This window is designed to recall the appearance of authentic period buildings, whilst providing standard casement security and functionality.
Hopper casement windows are similar to flush casements but are flush on the inside, not the outside, so kind of like a mirror image once installed. The only other difference is featuring different bottom sections to deal with water drainage.
These windows are designed to open inwards and are an attractive choice for those looking to have a fly screen or pot plants on their windows cills. They are often double glazed windows to further improve their efficiency and security.
Although these windows provide the option to open inwards, the best inward opening window is the Tilt and Turn window, the European window, which is widely used in Europe.
Whilst complementing the appearance of a traditional flush casement window, this Hopper style window actually opens inside. This can be ideal where the traditional flush casement, opening out design, doesn’t meet your needs.
Tilt and turn windows, also known as European timber windows, are a great option if you’re looking for more flexibility with your windows. Unlike traditional casement windows that open outwards, these wooden casement windows open inwards. This allows you to tilt the window open at the top for ventilation and also you can open it like a normal window or door, for a full opening.
This style of window provides better protection from intruders as the windows locking system goes all the way around the openers with locking bolts. They also come as double glazed windows for extra security and insulation.
These windows can be used in any type of home and provide an aesthetically pleasing look while allowing you to enjoy natural airflow. You can also install an insect screen or have pot plants on your window cills, on the outside, if you wish.
