Crank or Manual Operation Windows

I am looking to install some windows i one of my rooms.
Thinking of putting 4, 14"Wx34"L casement stlye windows.
Also, 2, 28"Wx18"L awning style windows. My question is,
what's better, cranker style or push-out handle style?


thanks! Post Replies welcome!

Casements, crank. Awning, push out. Casements, be sure to seal and paint the top in case it gets rained on. They will break down if not taken good care of.

Depends on your situation. From an energy standpoint, not a lot of difference between casement and awning, both are very good. You can open awnings in the rain an not worry about water, not so with casements. As suggested above, casement frames need to properly finished.

Final Decision getting closer

I think I am going more toward the awning windows. I love fresh air and
if it rains, i can leave the windows wide open without any rain coming in.

If i were to have the casements together, i would do both one operation or
the other if the windows would be nearly together. But i traditionally like
casements with cranks and awnings with push-out.

thanks.
