What are Awning Windows?
An awning window is a type of window hinged on the top and swings outward from the bottom. Due to its top-hinged design, awning windows provide better ventilation than sliding and hung windows while allowing plenty of ventilation when left open. Awning windows are usually used in combination with other types of windows, such as casement windows, to create a more traditional look.
Top hinged windows are popular in older homes and many European-style homes. They can be opened a crack to let in natural light and air while still providing some privacy. Furthermore, awning windows are easy to clean because they open from the top. They can be left open in bad weather to prevent rain or snow from coming into the house.
Awning windows are available in a variety of materials, including wood, aluminum, and vinyl. They can be painted or stained to match the exterior of your home. Awning windows are an ideal choice for homes in climates with moderate temperatures because they provide good ventilation without letting in too much heat or cold.
Count on Chicago Window Guys for Flawless Awning Window Installation
Replacing or installing new awning windows is known to be a stressful and more complex job than with other types of windows. Awning windows are similar to casement windows, but instead of swinging on a vertical hinge, awning windows have a horizontal design and swing on a horizontal hinge. This makes them ideal for areas where there is not much space to open a window, such as in a shower.
Awning window installation might seem like an easy DIY project, but it's not. The installation process starts with measuring the area where the window will be installed and cutting out a hole of the correct size in the wall. Next, the window frame is attached to the hole using screws or nails.
Once the frame is in place, the glass is inserted and sealed. The final step is to install the handle and lock to ensure that the window provides a tight seal when not in use. Awning windows can be opened manually or with the help of a crank mechanism.
Due to their design and the importance of ensuring the perfect seal to benefit the most from their energy efficiency, it's best to call window professionals whenever you need to have awning windows installed.

What People Are Saying
We just installed all new windows at our house and we love them! Before we made our decision we went to the manufacturer’s plant to see how the windows are made. We were concerned at first because Russ’s price was more than half of his competitors quoted price. After our tour we were very comfortable with our decision. Installation day was quick and painless. Our house was left in great condition. I highly recommend this company!
Prompt, courteous, and knowledgeable. Windows will be installed after they are manufactured. Update: couldn't have gone better. The windows are very high quality and the guys that installed them did a great job. They removed and replaced four windows in under two hours, and the finished job looks very good, both inside and out. We will be having them back to install additional windows once we get some unrelated work performed by other contractors.
We just decided to start this project so it has not been started yet but we were really impressed by Russ so far. Update our windows are done and installed. We were shocked they had our project completed so quick and it turned out great. What a great experience we had. 5 stars? Would have given 8 easily.
