    Casement windows are hinged to open outward at one side using a crank, making them ideal for catching breezes in the summer. You can remove screens in the winter for a picturesque view. Casement windows give the exterior of your home a smooth, modern look when closed, but can open completely until the window is perpendicular to the frame.

    Tips for Making Your Windows Safer for Your Kids

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Safe windows are extremely important for homes with children. Poorly-maintained or damaged windows cause thousands of injuries among children in the U.S. each year. Implementing a few simple safety practices can protect your child around the windows of your home.

    Don’t Rely On Screens
    One of the most common window safety misconceptions is that a screen will prevent a child from falling out of a window. However, in 80% of window fall cases, parents report a screen was present. Screens are not meant to be a safety measure and should never be relied upon to keep your child safe around an open window. If you have small children in your home, install a window guard or stop in any window you plan to open. Window guards and stops are permanent fixtures designed to act as safety measures that will prevent a child from falling.

    Don’t Leave Children Unattended
    Many children fall out of windows after being left unattended even for short periods of time. Never leave a small child alone near an open window—children are both curious and quick, and may climb out a window before you realize what is happening. Additionally, it’s a good practice to teach your child never to play near any window, open or closed. Establish a safe distance, such as two to three “giant” steps, where your child is allowed to play.

    Don’t Ignore Window Damage
    Poorly-maintained windows can easily cause a fall or injure a child. Inspect your home’s windows at least once a year for signs of damage such as cracked glass, rotting wood, or warped frames. Have your windows repaired or replaced immediately by a professional if you spot signs of damage.

    What Are Blackout Shades?

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Blackout shades are window shades designed to completely block all incoming light. These shades have many different applications. A blackout shade may be used to create a healthy sleeping environment during the day. Blackout shades can also eliminate incident sunlight to prevent heating of a room during the summer. A blackout shade can be the sole shade covering a window, or blackout liners can be added to pre-existing blinds and shades. You can also choose to use blackout curtains to cover a window, rather than a rolling or accordion shade. Various materials are used in blackout shades; the most effective blackout shades are made with fiberglass, while others contain plastic or vinyl. A blackout shade can be mounted for manual or remote operation, providing you with convenience suited to your needs.
