Like casement windows, awning windows are another popular choice for kitchens, laundry rooms, dens, sun rooms, and other areas where you’d like to add more options for airflow. They are contemporary-looking and convenient, and are designed to be easily opened and shut.
Awning windows are usually smaller, rectangular-shaped windows. Whereas casement windows open outwards to the side, awning windows are hinged at the top and swing outwards from the bottom. Awning windows come in a number of frame materials. They can be installed by themselves, but are also a nice choice to pair with larger, fixed windows.
Here are a few more key features of awning windows:
Because awning windows can be placed higher than some other types of windows, they can be used to deliver both light and ventilation without compromising your personal privacy. The ability to install them up high also provides for usable wall space for art, decorations, or furniture placement. Thanks to their vertically-tilted opening, awning windows are particularly well-suited for wet climates. You can even leave them open in the rain, with very little opportunity for moisture to infiltrate your home or business. Modern design and engineering also makes today’s awning windows even more weather-resistant and energy-efficient than previous products.
There are a number of awning window products on the market, but some are better made than others. Are you looking for a well-made-yet-affordable vinyl awning window option? Consider the Aspect vinyl window series from ProVia. These awning windows are designed to be both durable and energy efficient, and they come standard with a multi-point locking hardware system and Aspect’s patented SunShield Vinyl. You can also opt to include ProVia’s Neopor insulation and INNERGY thermal sash reinforcements. Like to shop local? West View awning windows are made by the West Window Corporation in nearby Martinsville, VA, and are great to use with both new construction and replacement window configurations alike. The one-inch insulated glass and multi-cavity vinyl frames also combine to reduce outside noise. Of course, you can always also consider one of the awning window products from industry-leader Pella. Their 350 Series and Lifestyle Series have earned Energy Star’s Most Efficient rating, and their 250 Series offers exceptional vinyl performance and style, with options that can fit most any budget.
