What is an Awning Window?

Awning Windows

An awning window is a single-sash window that is hinged at the top of the sash and has a handle crank for easy opening, usually swinging outward toward your home’s exterior. Our awning windows are superior in functionality, durability and protection.

If you like to feel the breeze from outside rather than have the AC running all the time, an awning window is one of the best choices you can make regarding new window installation. Awning windows let in plenty of fresh air, and you can leave them open even when it’s raining. Because of the way they’re designed, they won’t let water in, but you’ll still be able to feel the breeze from outside without having to stand right next to the window!

Benefits of Awning Windows

In addition to the superior ventilation awning windows offer, they have a number of advantages, including:

Energy efficiency – due to airtight sealing frames, an awning window is very energy efficient. This superior sealing also protects your home from water and insect intrusion.

Appearance/aesthetics – awning windows can provide a unique look for your home, no matter the style. They also look good from both the inside and outside of your home, whether they are open or closed.

Versatility – due to their easy opening, awning windows are a great choice for places that aren’t as easy to reach (over the sink, etc.), and though they are commonly used above doors, awning windows work well in any area of the house.
