5 Star are finding these increasingly popular in period, cottage, country and fine-looking properties.
The casement design dates back more than 200 years and was originally constructed from Timber. Since the 1950’s the manufacture of replacement windows and double glazing has commonly featured tipped, overlapping casements, while timber windows have provided the only flush option.
