Benefits of Awning Windows

    Offers full ventilation. The entire sash of an awning window opens from the top to maximize airflow.

    Privacy – since the awning window opens from the top, with obscure glass you can get air in a bathroom, while maintaining privacy. 

    Can be left open in the rain. Because an awning window opens outward, it prevents rain from entering. A crank at the bottom of the window allows it to be opened wide or only a few inches.

    Increases light transmission. Unlike a horizontal or vertical sliding window, an awning window has a full sash without any bars through the middle to cut down light or views to the outside.

    Works well in small spaces. A small awning window can be combined with other windows or placed above a sliding glass door. The smaller size of an awning window makes it perfect for use in bedrooms, dormers, kitchens, basements, showers and baths.

    Reduces air and drafts. The sash compresses against the frame to provide a better seal than a sliding window.

    Can provide shading from the sun. If you opt for tinted glass or internal blinds, an awning window can actually serve as a canopy window.

      Decorative glass

      Use decorative glass to make personalization (and architectural decor) come to life in your replacement windows. Create a one-of-a-kind look with different color caming and artistic glass designs. 

      Tinted glass

      If you’re looking to reduce the harmful affects of UV light and solar heat gain impacting expensive living and dining room furniture, then tinted glass is an option to put on your wish list. Choose from gray, bronze, green or blue tinted glass. 

      Internal tilt mini blinds

      Blinds placed inside the window never need to be cleaned and provide shade from the sun. It’s cool not to have to hassle dusting blinds in front of your windows!

      We offer a wide range of interior wood grain looks to complement any décor. Options vary per window type and include light, medium, and dark oak, cherry, and foxwood.
