Awning windows aren’t for everyone but an increasing number of Perth residents are having them installed in their homes. So, what is it about awning windows that is making them have a resurgence of popularity? Keep reading.
What are Awning Windows?
To make it easy, awning windows are windows that turn into awnings when opened. The hinge is on the top of the window and it swings out, covering the space outside the window like an awning would. A crank is used to open the window.
They are often put above a picture window, allowing for grandiose views but still providing ventilation and protection. However, they also make great standalone windows.
Advantages of Awning Windows
The biggest advantage of awning windows is that they provide ventilation in bad weather. They can let breeze in without letting in rain. No other window provides this combination of protection and ventilation.
Make Sure they are Right for You
Earlier, we said “awning windows aren’t right for everyone.” That is because there are some “requirements” for those who want awning windows. First, you have to have room above and outside your window for the window to swing upward and outward. Because they can be small, they are often used in bathrooms and basements.
