Owner's Manual

Casement Windows

Purchasing windows is not unlike buying other building products. When a question arises, a helpful guide can lead you through common questions such as finishing interiors/exteriors, adjusting a hardware system or cleaning glass.

Our owner’s manual is a user-friendly guide intended to provide information and recommendations related to Timeline Windows and Patio doors. Products tend to look better and last longer with the proper care and maintenance.


Screen Removal

Crank-out casement screens are mounted on the interior of the window. The screen is held in place by springs at the top. To remove the screen, lift the rail at the bottom and pull up and back over the operator. Once the operator is cleared simply pull the screen down and into the building.

 

Exterior Glass Cleaning

Your Timeline casement is provided with standard hardware that will allow you to open the window to a full 90° which will allow access to clean the exterior of the window when the screen is removed and the sash is fully opened. NOTE: Casement windows with special egress hardware will not allow this reach out feature. These windows will need to be washed from the outside.

 

Hinge Adjustment

Should the sash to frame relationship fall out of adjustment over time (the space between sash and frame equally spaced around the unit), the hinges are adjustable.

 

Track Maintenance

To help keep your casement windows operating smoothly it is important that the tracks and hinges are cleaned of dirt and debris on a regular basis. To keep these parts clean, brush them with a small dry paintbrush. Lubricate with a Teflon spray if necessary.
