Awning windows are often used in conjunction with large stationary windows, and for this reason, they have the reputation for being a durable window with unlimited architectural possibilities. Commonly used in basements, awning windows can be situated side-by-side or in a series. Due to the hinged top and outward opening mechanic, awning windows prevent outside elements and the harshest weather (such as rain, falling leaves, hail, etc.) from entering the home. These types of windows can also be situated up high, and the operator can easily open and close the window with the turn of a handle.
Screens are placed on the inside of awning windows. Due to the window closing flush against the frame, awning windows generally have a lower amount of air leakage compared to sliding windows. Whether you’re looking for a new window solution or for a complete overhaul, awning windows might be the right choice for you. They are ideal for hard to reach places, above sinks in kitchens, and most importantly, they offer guaranteed durability and smooth, stress-free operation.
