This installment of our window education series gives homeowners a bit more information about each style and the benefits each offers.
Benefits of the Versatile Awning: Features Everyone Loves
Benefit #1: Ventilation, Even When it’s Raining
Awning windows have hinges mounted at the upper edge of the window unit. Very popular with people who love the fresh, invigorating smell of rain – or maybe just the petrichor as the first few droplets hit the earth during a gentle shower – this window design channels a light rain away from the house. The mini-umbrella that forms when you crank out the glass helps keep your interior dry while bringing in fresh air and the lovely scent of an early rain shower.
Benefit #2: Easy Operation
Another design feature seen in all awning replacement windows is the single handle operation. Positioned at the lower edge of the window unit for easy access, the single lever makes this style perfect for installation over counters, high on the wall and in bathrooms over the tub.
Benefit #3: Unassuming Accent Qualities
While awning windows work great as stand alone windows, they are also quite beautiful installed above or below picture windows. This style is typically wider than it is tall, and accepts all standard grille patterns. In foyers, bathrooms and other areas where homeowners want to increase ventilation and privacy, patterned glass options provide the perfect solution.
Benefits of Insulated, Double-Paned Hopper Replacement Windows
Benefit #1: Energy Efficient Qualities
Energy-efficient, Fibrex frames make customized hopper replacement windows one of the most popular window choices for basements. Insulated, double-pane construction along with multiple low-E glass options give homeowners the unique opportunity to build home windows that will lower heating and cooling bills.
Benefit #2: Space-Saving Features
The swing-in window features a single operational lever and hinges on the lower edge of the window unit. Because the movable panel pulls inward, this style is perfect in areas where a swing out window may interfere with landscaping or outdoor activities on the deck or patio.

This style complements almost every architectural style and comes in custom sizes from tall and narrow to extra wide and short.
