Awning windows have hinges on the top part of the frame, which swings outward to open and close. Because of their design, one of the greatest benefits of awning windows is their rainproof qualities. This means that light rain won’t spill into the interior if you choose to have it open for a breeze.
Generally, awning windows have smaller sizes than other window types, and can be a stylish complement to non-operable windows. Awning windows are a great choice for homes in damp climates or with limited vertical space. Just keep in mind that they are not recommended for rooms that require a high degree of privacy or places with heavy foot traffic, such as porches and walkways.
Awning windows are available in various styles: aluminum, steel, vinyl, and wood. They are also easy to operate, energy-efficient, and typically affordable.
