Casement Windows

Merry Christmas to Everyone.

I live in the colder parts of the states. Valparaiso, Indiana. In the winter months, it is not a good idea to open Casement windows because of the seals are not pliable or soft. The cranks could become damaged also trying to close the window tight. Sometimes when having a house full, it does become too warm, so I have to open the back door to get some cool air in.
So as for inspections, how would an inspector address this issue?

Sounds like your seals are bad?? A good quality window should be able to seal properly. Often times the lock on a casement will pull window tight to the seal. If the seals are bad write them up as so.

I’ve had casements on our last two houses, never had an issue during winter and I’m north of Chicago.
