Toronto Casement Windows

Open Up Your Home With Casement Windows

Hinged on the side, casement windows open outward, welcoming the breeze into your home. Homeowners covet these windows in large part because they are clean, uncluttered and allow for ease of operation. For these reasons, casement windows are ideal for the hard-to-reach areas of your home, like above the kitchen sink or in a tight corner.

Unlike double-hung windows, where only one half of the window can open, casement windows can open in their entirety, creating a larger opening for air flow. It’s part of what makes them such an appealing option for Toronto homeowners who wish to take advantage of the mild climate.

Commonly known as: crank windows, side hinge windows, side hung windows, hinged windows.

Popular Local Trends & Styles

  • wooden casement windows Bungalow Style

    Toronto bungalows date as far back as the early 20th century, having been brought to Canada from California. Casement windows are frequently used for bungalow style homes in combination with double hung and awning windows. Often incorporated in groups of two or three, these windows help create the patterns commonly associated with the bungalow style.

  • casement window sizes Tudor Revival Style Lawrence Park, Rosedale, and Forest Hill are among the areas of Toronto where you’ll find Tudor Revival style architecture, with these homes generally having been built between 1900 and 1940. Casement windows are a popular choice for Tudor Revival style homes because they balance the architectural design while emphasizing the height of the home.
  • vinyl casement windows Kitchen Casement Windows

    Frequently installed in pairs, casement windows can be incorporated into almost any space. One space you might not think to put your casement windows is the kitchen, but more Toronto homeowners are installing them above a sink or kitchen cabinet. The ventilation invites the air from a passing breeze outside to flow into the kitchen for a calm and cool atmosphere.

  • between the glass blinds Between-the-Glass Blinds

    Casement windows open up your home to the fresh air of the outdoors, but sometimes what you need is protection from what lies outside, as well. Specifically, sunlight. Between-the-glass blinds offer that extra protection from the sun, and can be conveniently programmed to automatically adjust the amount of shade with Pella’s Insynctive Technology.1

Toronto Climate Recommendations

Toronto is home to one of the mildest climates in Canada, but the city is no stranger to extreme weather. The summer heat never quite reaches 90 degrees, but the high humidity can make for balmy conditions. Temperatures drop from December through March for the winter, with annual snowfall averaging from eight to 36 inches. The Toronto climate is calmest during spring and fall, with relatively dry weather, although the wind picks up during these periods.
