March 13, 2019

Awning windows are unique in that they're hinged from the top. When open, they look somewhat like an awning (casement windows, on the other hand, open to the side).

Their vertical configuration provides a boost in ventilation, allowing fresh air to flow into your house and inside air to move out. A casement window opens more fully than any other type of window, compared to double hung windows in which both halves cannot be opened together, or sliding windows with only one opening side. Here are some other reasons casements are chosen for window installation.
