When starting to refine your search for good quality casement windows there are a number of key considerations to help you make your decision. Genesis are on hand to guide you through the whole process, whether you have just a vague idea or detailed specification for your home or building project.
Below we outline the main features, benefits and considerations of purchasing casement windows.
Casement windows are defined by the way that they open, whereby the full window frame opens outward or inwards, attached to the frame by its hinges. The alternative to this of course, being sash windows, where a section moves up or down along sliding joints.
One major point to note is to understand the difference between a standard casement and a flush casement and this is a primary aesthetic to appreciate in addition to whether you choose uPVC or aluminium.
A standard casement is designed and manufactured with the opener, or sash, sitting on and overlapping the outer frame. In doing this is it provides a very efficient weather seal due to the compression that is applied between the frame and the opener.
This is probably the most commonly seen style of window in most properties throughout the UK.
Flush casement windows differ from standard casement windows in respect of the sash, or opener, being ‘flush’ with the outer frame – hence the name.
This delivers a unique look that can be useful in period properties, renovations and newbuilds.
The Genesis Collection is made using 2 materials, aluminium and uPVC.
The standard casement windows are made in both and the Flush casement is only available in uPVC.
Standard uPVC casements are available but not as part of the Genesis Collection.
The Genesis Flush casement window combines the beauty and elegance of traditional windows with all the benefits of modern materials, namely maintenance-free security and thermal efficiency.
It makes a stunning addition to both traditional and contemporary buildings, transforming period homes, country cottages and modern townhouses alike.

No matter your preference, its unrivalled aesthetic appeal makes it one of the most attractive and authentic flush casement windows on the market today.

This will depend largely on the style your property and how you would like it to look. Standard casement windows will look traditional but won’t have the sleek appearance of the flush casement window. The flush is a very versatile choice as it’s suits 1920’s style homes and new houses equally well.

As with other window types it’s best not to fit blinds directly to the window itself. If the frames are big enough it may be possible to fit integral blinds within the glass. This is a very neat solution which sees the window blinds operated by a sliding control magnet.
