Enhance Your Home with Timber Casement Windows

Timber Casement Windows: perfectly crafted for your Melbourne property

Timber casement windows are the most commonly-used window type available for both residential and commercial properties. Casement window design makes them aesthetically pleasing, while also inviting plenty of fresh air and natural light into the home.

A popular choice for builders and homeowners due to their many advantages, timber casement windows are a stylish option that can be fully opened using high quality hardware. Offering a high level of security, they are also easy to clean and low maintenance.

What are casement windows?

A casement window is hinged down one side and opens outwards to the left or right depending on its position and usage within the home or property. This generally allows the window to be opened out to 90 degrees so that air and light can more easily enter.

They are usually operated with a crank winder handle and have a secondary sash lock for added security and functionality. Timber casement windows are extremely popular in both modern and traditional-style homes, as they can be customised to suit different window sizes and to enhance the property’s street appeal.

The benefits of casement windows

Timber casement windows add style and character to any property. They are a beautiful addition to any home and offer many benefits in terms of functionality and durability.

When combined with fixed windows or awning windows, casement windows can make a statement as a feature on the exterior of your building.
As well as being easy to operate and maintain, casement windows offer superior security with a multi-point lock system and can be fitted with flyscreens.
For ease of use, security, natural airflow and appearance, they are an ideal solution, whether for residential homes, apartment buildings or commercial properties.

Why choose timber casement windows for your home?

In addition to the benefits listed above, there are several other factors to consider when choosing timber casement windows.

Here are just some of the many good reasons why selecting timber casement windows for your new or existing building project makes sense.

Highly customisable to suit your home design

Available in a wide range of sizes and timber options, timber casement windows are an attractive and practical choice that will suit any project from a traditional or heritage home to an architectural masterpiece.

Whatever your application and choice of style, Aspect Windows can customise our casement windows to suit your specifications.

Invite the outdoors in

When fully opened, casement windows are able to capture even the lightest breeze on a warm day, making them perfect for rooms such as bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms where ventilation is important.

If the outdoors is important to you, casement windows are a good choice because they can be opened wide to allow views of the garden and alfresco areas, while admitting fresh air and sunlight.

Aspect Windows’ timber louvre windows are an alternative choice for windows that offer plenty of ventilation.

Energy efficiency with casement windows

Casement windows are very energy efficient. When closed and latched, a tight seal is formed which assists in keeping your home insulated and free from drafts. This helps you save on energy costs as you won’t need to use your heating and cooling systems as frequently.

Easy to clean and maintain

When optional concealed hinges are added during the manufacturing process, casement windows are very easy to clean. The outside pane area can be easily reached from the open window so can be wiped down from inside the room.

Maintenance is also a simple process. Inspect the paint or coating on the windows every three to six months, and touch-up or re-coat where necessary. It’s important to include the tops and bottoms of the sashes to prevent weather damage.

Customisation options

Aspect Windows is able to manufacture standard window products at competitive prices with a short lead time. We are also customisation specialists and can build windows with unusual shapes or complex architectural designs to achieve a unique look and feel for projects where something out-of-the-ordinary is required.

The style and type of window can make a huge difference to the end result of a new build or renovation, so we offer several different timber and upgrade
options.

Standard casement window sizes are available and special sizes can be built upon request, such as extra-large sizes along with period-correct recreations for Heritage-listed properties.

Other options available upon special request include adding large bottom rails, period sills or thicker mullions and transoms to match existing windows.

Timber and finishing choices

The timber we use to manufacture our casement windows ranges from standard grade sustainable Victorian ash hardwood or Tasmanian oak, to select-grade blackbutt timber, Accoya—modified pine—and cedar by special request. Blackbutt is a great choice to use in high risk bushfire areas for its fire retardant properties.

Aspect Windows offer several timber window frame finishes including paint grade, stain grade and primed Victorian ash hardwood.

Hardware options

Aspect Windows offers an upgrade to your casement windows that uses concealed hinges and an alternative winder. Windows with these fittings open in a way that allows the outside panel of glass to be reached from inside, making them easier to clean.

Quality Truth hardware fittings are used extensively on timber casement windows and can be upgraded to options such as winders with single or dual arms, sash locks, lockable winders, stainless steel butt hinges and period fittings.

Glazing and glass options

Casement Windows can be double-glazed to increase insulation and help reduce energy usage for indoor heating and cooling. Double-glazing has two layers of glass with a sealed cavity between them which assists in reducing the amount of heat entering or leaving your home.

A single-glazed window pane with low emissivity glass, also known as Low-E glass, is available for the casement windows we provide. Low-E glass has a unique coating that improves energy efficiency, and provides an alternative to double-glazing.

There are also obscure glazing options available for casement windows that are installed in rooms such as bathrooms and toilets, or where privacy is required elsewhere.

Handmade from renewable materials

Aspect Windows’ timber casement windows are handcrafted from sustainable building materials. This ensures that our windows have a smaller environmental impact than windows made from non-renewable materials. We only use the highest quality timber to manufacture our casement windows, so you can be sure that your windows will last for many years to come.

Value for money

A question customers sometimes ask us is are casement windows more expensive? While they may cost slightly more than a standard double-hung window due to the complex mechanisms involved in the crank opening, their overall benefits outweigh the cost due to their ease of opening, unobstructed views and airtight seals that create a more energy efficient home.

Timber casement windows—a great choice

Timber casement windows are popular for good reason. They enhance street appeal and can be customised to suit your personal style and match your home decor. When properly fitted and installed, open them to let fresh air in, or close them to keep heat from escaping when it’s cool. Easy to clean and maintain, our quality fittings make them a good security option too.

Our timber casement windows are crafted to the highest standard, look great and will make your home feel light and airy. Browse Aspect Windows’ products online, choose a style and call 03 9768 3944 to get a quote.
