Casement windows offer one of the most complicated installation concerns of any type of window. There are several options for fitting a casement window with plantation shutters. Lets consider them all.
This is when a shutter hinges directly into the window jamb. You need enough depth in the window jamb (about 1 1/4″ for a Kirtz Shutters) to contain the shutter panel plus room for any hardware (magnets or ball catches). Some times we can make it work with less than this, but it requires that your hinge protrude past the jamb a bit and it really isn’t the best look. The pro’s with this application is it can be a very clean, simple look. The con’s are that if your window is out of square the light gaps around the shutter will be uneven and will magnify the imperfections of the window.
