Frequently Asked Questions About Awning Windows

Why should I choose awning style windows?

There are several reasons why you might want to choose awning windows in your home. Awning windows are flexible and can be paired with other windows or incorporated in tight spaces with minimal disruption of your home’s design. Awning windows can also afford you privacy without sacrificing light or ventilation, depending on the placement.

How do awning style windows increase ventilation?

Although all types of windows can help ventilate your home, awning style windows are a great option because they swing out fully to allow more ventilation. With the proper placement, awning style windows are perfect in places like bathrooms and kitchens for creating more air flow and getting rid of unwanted smells.

Are awning windows good for natural light?

While awning windows don’t have as much surface area, their flexible size means they can add to the amount of light you’re getting from existing windows, be placed above a door or add light to a dim room that can’t fit a larger window.

Can you use awning windows on their own?

The best part about awning windows is their flexibility. They can be used with other windows, other features like doors or on their own altogether. Often people will use awning windows on their own inside basements as there’s limited space between the ground and a basement’s ceiling. Awning windows allow light in and create ventilation.

Met with Don to get quotes on two windows for our house. He was very polite and very knowledgeable. Don was able to give us two different quotes based off our budget. I definitely recommend them just based on customer service alone.
