Custom Steel Casement Windows: The Perfect Addition to Your Burlingame Home


When it comes to home design and renovation, windows play a crucial role in elevating the aesthetics and functionality of the space. Custom steel casement windows have become increasingly popular in Burlingame homes, known for their durability, versatility, and timeless appeal. In this blog post, we will explore the various factors that make steel casement windows the perfect addition to your Burlingame home, and how you can choose the right design to match your unique style.

The Appeal of Steel Casement Windows

Steel casement windows have been a popular choice for architects and homeowners for decades due to their sleek and modern appearance. Here are some reasons why these windows are a great choice for your Burlingame home:


Steel is known for its strength and durability, making it an ideal material for window frames. Unlike wood or vinyl, steel does not warp, rot, or become infested with pests. This means that your steel casement windows will maintain their structural integrity for years to come.

Energy Efficiency

Steel casement windows are excellent at insulating your home, keeping it warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The tight seal created by the steel frame helps to prevent drafts and air leaks, reducing your energy consumption and saving you money on your utility bills.


One of the most appealing aspects of steel casement windows is their versatility in design. They can be customized to suit any architectural style, from traditional to contemporary. With a wide range of finishes and hardware options available, you can create a window that perfectly complements your Burlingame home.

Timeless Appeal

Steel casement windows have a timeless appeal that never goes out of style. Their clean lines and minimalist design make them a popular choice for both new construction and historic renovations.

Choosing the Right Steel Casement Window Design for Your Burlingame Home

When selecting the perfect steel casement window design for your home, consider the following factors:

Architectural Style

The design of your steel casement windows should complement the architectural style of your home. For example, if you have a traditional or historic home, you may want to choose a window design with more intricate detailing, such as decorative mullions. On the other hand, if your home has a modern or contemporary style, a simpler design with clean lines and minimal ornamentation may be more appropriate.


Consider the functionality of your steel casement windows when choosing a design. Some popular options include:

Fixed windows:These windows do not open and are ideal for areas where ventilation is not a concern, such as decorative accents or in combination with operable windows.

Single casement windows:These windows have one operable sash that opens outward, providing excellent ventilation and easy cleaning.

Double casement windows:Also known as French casement windows, these windows feature two operable sashes that open outward, providing even more ventilation and a larger opening for emergency egress.

Glass Options

The type of glass you choose for your steel casement windows can have a significant impact on their appearance and performance. Some popular glass options include:

Clear glass:This is the most common type of glass used in windows and provides unobstructed views.

Low-E glass:This glass has a special coating that helps to reduce heat transfer, improving the energy efficiency of your windows.

Textured or frosted glass:These types of glass provide privacy while still allowing natural light to enter your home.

Hardware and Finishes

The hardware and finishes you choose for your steel casement windows can help to personalize their appearance and complement your home's style. Some popular options include:

Painted finishes:Steel casement windows can be painted in virtually any color to match your home's exterior.

Patina finishes:These finishes give the steel a weathered, aged appearance, adding character and charm to your windows.

Hardware:Choose from a variety of hardware styles and finishes to complete the look of your steel casement windows, such as hinges, handles, and locks.

Final Thoughts

Custom steel casement windows are an excellent choice for any Burlingame home, offering durability, energy efficiency, and a timeless appeal. By considering your home's architectural style, the functionality of your windows, and the various design options available, you can create a stunning addition to your living space that will last for years to come.

Casement Window


Casement windows are the most common style of window. They feature hinged panels that swing open and closed. Casement windows are available in single panels or multiple panels. The direction a door swings, either to the right or the left, is called the handing.

Why choose the tilt and turn opening method?

Because it generally has better air seals than sliding, single hung, or double hung window frames. Tilt and turn windows form a complete seal when fully closed, this means they are less prone to water leakage, and cold draughts and you’ll keep more of your heating indoors where it belongs. They can be opened in the upper tilt way to ventilate at a minimum opening status and are easy to clean outside of the glass; when there’s a good day, they can be opened as normal inward casement windows.
