What is a casement window?
A casement window also referred to as a crank-out window has a single sash that opens outward on a vertical axis by rotating a crank that is attached to the sash with heavy duty hinges. The hinges can open the sash to a full 90 degrees allowing for easy cleaning from inside the home. A multipoint locking system closes the unit tightly from a single lever. The casement is the most energy efficient of all operable window styles. Casements may be joined together into double, triple or quadruple units.
What is an awning window?
An awning window has a single sash that opens outward on a horizontal axis. Similar to a casement window, an awning window opens outward on a horizontal axis. The awning window provides the same features but instead opens vertically from the bottom. The awning window can be opened to create a passthrough window for your next gathering too!
Where should I consider installing a casement or awning window?
Casement and awning windows provide an easy-to-use window that allows for optimal light and fresh air. These windows fit well in hard-to-reach areas, like the kitchen sink. They are also perfect for a projecting window like a bow or bay. These windows are ideal in many locations because the single crank operator opens and closes the window with ease. If you live in the West Texas area, a casement or awning style window installation is a perfect option for your home, to increase natural light and ventilation options.

"We needed all our windows in our house replaced due to a catastrophic hail storm. Our windows in the front of the house were boarded up due to the storm. Window Source was so helpful to come by and measure, order and replace our windows. They did a very professional job and made sure we were satisfied with the work. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a reasonable price to replace windows and a quick professional installation."

I don't ever write reviews but was so happy with the experience I felt the need to share. We love our new windows and would highly recommend The Window Source to anybody looking to replace their windows!"

"I’ve been remodeling and flipping homes for several years now and believe me when I say this, “Window Source of West Texas is the BEST and EASIEST company to deal with!” In the past I’ve had horrible experiences with contractors showing up late, not showing up at all, leaving a mess, making a mess, doing mediocre work & the list goes on.
Abraham Loewen has been the same technician on 2 of my job sites and he has further exceeded my expectations every time. Not only did he pick up after he was done, he went back and cleaned every window plus frame individually. The time it took him to finish was a few hours for 10+ windows.
I’m extremely happy with the service/work/quality they provide. Huge thanks to Vanessa the sales lady that helped us choose our windows and provide us a quote. Sandy was super nice and scheduled everything to go as smooth as possible. I would highly recommend using them. I will refuse to use anyone else!"

"The Window Source of West TX is an EXCELLENT place with a top quality product, quick & meticulous install, and exceptional customer service! They gave us the best pricing from all previous estimates we've had in the past. We had 15 windows replaced and wrapped and the difference it's made to my home is unbelievable. They not only look amazing, but it feels amazing inside as well. I actually got cold for the first time during the summer. They made the entire process from start to finish so easy and I would highly recommend them to anyone! One happy customer for sure."
